Watch: Dimple Kapadia speaks about Nana Patekar’s dark side in this video
Nana Patekar is in the eye of the storm after being accused by Tanushree Dutta of sexual harassment. The actor has responded to the rumours and denied the accusation, but netizens (as well as celebrities) have spoken up in support of Tanushree Dutta.
Now, an old video of Dimple Kapadia speaking to Anupama Chopra has surfaced on the internet. In the video, Dimple Kapadia labelled Nana Patekar as obnoxious and also revealed that she had seen his dark side. She also called him extremely talented and said that Nana had been extremely nice to her.

So far, the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Renuka Shahane, Sonam Kapoor, Richa Chadha, Twinkle Khanna, Anurag Kashyap and Farhan Akhtar among others have shown their solidarity towards the actress. It remains to be seen whether this accusation will spark Bollywood’s own #MeToo movement, as it is a known fact that a lot of actresses face sexual harassment. Hopefully, more actresses will come forward and name and shame the perpetrators.
Nana Patekar is currently shooting for ‘Housefull 4′ in Jaisalmer, and has said that he would answer all questions in a press conference as soon as he is back in Mumbai.
