Tanushree Dutta kickstarted the #MeToo movement after she accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of 2008 film ‘Horn OK Pleassss’. As a result, Nana was ousted from ‘Housefull 4′. It also started a wave of accusations and several big names like Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl and Sajid Khan were called out.

Recently, there were reports of Nana Patekar getting a clean chit in the harassment case. Tanushree Dutta though has rubbished the rumours and said in a statement, “There is a false rumour floating in the Media that Nana Patekar has been given clean chit by Police in harassment case. I wish to clarify that the Mumbai police have given no such statement and that the investigation on the matter is still ongoing as confirmed by my advocate Nitin Satpute and the Mumbai Police.

We have come to know that Nana Patekars public relations team is responsible for spreading this false rumour because the accused in harassment cases are not getting any work in the industry and this is their attempt at damage control and fixing public image,” she added.

We really hope that justice is served soon.
For the uninitiated, Nana had allegedly touched Tanushree inappropriately during the shooting of a song. She also accused him of calling MNS workers to threaten her. After Tanushree walked out of the song, Rakhi Sawant acted as her replacement.
