Recently, Tanushree Dutta opened up about her traumatic past and accused veteran actor Nana Patekar for alleged misconduct on the sets of the 2008 film 'Horn OK Pleassss' during a song sequence, she further accused director Vivek Agnihotri of allegedly asking her to strip and dance on the sets of the 2005 film 'Chocolate'. Ever since this has become a burning topic of discussion. Bollywood and non-Bollywood members have come out and spoken about the same. Bollywood celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, and Farhan Akhtar to name a few came out in support of the actress while some like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, and Salman Khan among others preferred to stay away from the discussion which created further heat.
While there has been a debate on who is right or wrong, Tanushree Dutta recently filed a complaint against, Nana Patekar, Vivek Agnihotri, Ganesh Acharya, Sami Siddiqui, Rakesh Sarang and any other unidentified person involved. The complaint was registered at NCW(National Commission for Women) on October 4 to investigate the allegations of the sexual assault and molestation charges that were levelled by Tanushree Dutta. Here's a copy of the complaint registered.
A few eyewitnesses too came out in the open and spoke about the matter in detail, while a few like journalist Janice Sequeira and actor Daisy Shah spoke in favour of Tanushree Dutta and backed her allegations, recently an eyewitness from the sets of 'Chocolate' Sattyajit Gamzer took to his social media handle to deny Tanushree's allegations and revealed the minute on minute account from the sets of the 2005 film and stated that Tanushree has lied about the entire incident.
Director Vivek Agnihotri's lawyer denied all of Tanushree's allegations against him and in the wake of this controversy, Vivek Agnihotri's lawyer has released a press statement, in which he claimed that all the "allegations levelled against my client Mr Vivek Agnihotri by Ms Tanushree Dutta for misbehaviour and/or harassment are absolutely false, frivolous and vexatious. The lawyer further stated that the "allegations are deliberate and have been borne with an intent to attract publicity and wreak personal vendetta against my client with malafide intentions."
