Once upon a time, there was an actress by the name of Tanushree Dutta. The diva then disappeared altogether and in 2018, she hogged the limelight for accusing Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her. In a way, Tanushree started India’s #MeToo movement and it created a huge uproar. The alleged incident had happened on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss!’ in 2008.

The veteran actor Nana was accused by Tanushree of getting too close for comfort during the shoot of a special song for the 2008 film ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’. She claimed that when she refused to perform an intimate dance with him and was about to leave the set, Nana called members of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena to intimidate her.

The police has recorded the statements of 12 to 15 witnesses, including Daisy Shah, who used to assist choreographer Ganesh Acharya at the time.

A police official quoted by Mid-Day said, “Several statements in the matter have been recorded, but most of them don’t support her allegations. The reason behind this is people cannot recall the incident. Some only remember about the delay during the shoot, but not about any harassment faced by the actor.”

The police official further added, “As the matter is 10 years old, it’s taking a lot of time to track down the people who were present at the time of the incident. The witnesses’ statements are very important to take the investigation forward.”

Tanushree Dutta has accused police of going slow in the case and deliberately sabotaging the case.
