Tanushree Dutta had accused her co-star Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her during the shooting of an item song for the movie ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’. The actress also said that the actor sent out goons with the help of the Maharashtra Navnirman Seva (MNS) party to vandalise her car. Tanushree even said that she has received threats from the MNS party.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray has opened up on the accusations that are levelled against Nana. Mr. Thackeray called Nana Patekar ‘arrogant’ and ‘indecent’ but he has also backed him saying that Nana cannot harass anyone.

Speaking at an event in Amravati, he said, “I know Nana Patekar; he is indecent. He does crazy things but I don’t think he can do such a thing. Court will look into it. What is the media to do with it? #MeToo is a serious matter, the debate over it on Twitter isn’t right.”

He even said that if a woman faces anything like this, she can seek MNS for help and they would even raise their voice against this.

Raj Thackeray was quoted as saying by news agency ANI, “It seems it is being done to divert attention from petrol price, rupee value and unemployment. If anything like #MeToo happens, women can come to MNS. We will teach a lesson to the accused. Women must raise the voice when they face oppression, not after 10 years.”
