The controversy of Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar is getting intense with each passing day. The actress has finally received the legal notice from actor Nana Patekar and filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri in the sexual harassment allegations.
Tanushree said on Wednesday that she has been slapped with notices as she spoke out against them.
Tanushree confirmed the news and said, “I have been slapped with two legal notices today. One from Nana Patekar and another from Vivek Agnihotri. This is the price you pay for speaking out against harassment, humiliation and injustice in India. Both Nana’s and Vivek Agnihotri’s teams are on a smear campaign against me by constructing outright lies and misinformation on social media platforms and other public platforms. Their supporters are coming ahead and weaving damming allegations against me even shouting at the top of their voices at press conferences.”
She also alleged that two people tried to barge into her house, “Today while I was at home and the police personnel posted outside my home were on a lunch break two unnamed suspicious individuals tried getting into our home uninvited but were stopped just in time by security personnel in the building. Later the police came back from their break and secured the premises again. Violent threats are being issued against me by the MNS party. I’m being threatened to be dragged into the court and legal system of India.”
The actress recently accused Bollywood actor Nana Patekar of assaulting her on the sets of Horn OK Please. She said that he had allegedly grabbed her by her arms and pushed her around. She even said that he had even asked the choreographers to move aside so that he could show her how to dance.
Not only Nana, but Tanushree has also accused director Vivek Agnihotri of inappropriate behaviour while shooting for Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets adding that Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty stood up for her.
In an exclusive interview with DNA, the actress said that director Vivek Agnihotri told her to remove clothes and dance in front of Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty as a cue for their facial expressions on the sets of 2005 film Chocolate.
She went on to say that Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty, who were both present on the sets immediately came to her rescue and said to the director that they don’t need cues and they know their part.
