A day after revealing that she had been mistreated on the sets of a 2008 film, actor Tanushree Datta has alleged that Nana Patekar sexually harassed her. Tanushree in an interview said that Nana’s reputation of sexual misconduct is well known in the Hindi film industry, but little has been done about it.
In an interview to News18, Tanushree has said that the Me Too movement will never arrive in India because of the industry’s hypocrisy. She said that we can’t expect change until what happened to her in 2008 is acknowledged. In an interview to Zoom, Tanushree said, “Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know about his background that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them, his behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it.”
Former Miss India Tanushree Dutta broke many hearts when she decided to leave films and eventually the country to move to the US. The actress is back in the bay now and recently made a shocking revelation. Tanushree claimed that she was assaulted by veteran actor Nana Patekar. The actress said that during the filming of her 2008 film Horn Ok Please, she was not just pushed but also intimidated by Nana Patekar on the sets.
In an exclusive interview with Zoom TV, Tanushree said that Nana Patekar has as a history of assaulting women. She said that people in the industry know that the actor is rude to women and has beaten them on the sets. She said, “Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know about this and that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them, his behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it.
She further said, “Everyone has gossiped about this but have never spoken. People with this kind of character speak like this against the kind of character that I have because they say she does glamourous roles so must be glamorous and all. Behind the back, they are so dirty. When you are in the industry you hear so many stories about these actors. But these things never take surface because they are PR packaged very well. They will give some money to some poor farmers. How much they do and how much they don’t no one knows. But all this is just for show.”
