Tanushree Dutta in her latest revelation spoke about how she was sexually harassed while filming a special song for 'Horn Ok Please' in 2008. The actress revealed that Bollywood Actor Nana Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets while filming the song and accused him of sexual harassment. The actress further lashed out at renowned choreographer Ganesh Acharya for pressurising her for an intimate sequence in the song. The actress also accused produce Sami Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang of harassing her on the sets of the film.
Several eminent personalities from Bollywood came out in support of Tanushree Dutta including Sonam Kapoor, Twinkle Khanna, Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha, Farhan Akhtar, Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra and Anurag Kashyap to name a few. The latest addition to the list of Bollywood celebrities who came out in support for the 'Dhol' actress is Renuka Sahane. In a cryptic Facebook post, the actress said that 'Many men and women have faced his wrath'.
Further, she wrote "Tanushree made it clear that she was uncomfortable with a certain step in the dance and did not like Nana's gesture/touch during that step. Even if Nana's intentions might not have been to molest her, couldn't he, the director and the choreographer come up with a step that made her feel comfortable? Is the work place meant for terrorising people or about working in a healthy atmosphere? Would the film have suffered earth shatteringly if the steps were changed so that an actor felt more comfortable?"

Reportedly, commenting about the case, Ganesh Acharya defended Nana Patekar, and claimed that he can confirm that nothing like the incident took place on the sets of 'Horn Ok Please'. Recently, Nana Patekar broke his silence over the matter and denied the accusations stating that there were about 50 to 100 people on the sets of the film. He went on to add that he will see what can be done legally.
