Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has been hitting the headlines after she brought the #MeToo movement in Bollywood by accusing Nana Patekar of sexual assault.
It was a few days ago when the actress spoke against Nana Patekar’s NGO Naam foundation at a press event and accused them of illegal activities.
Now, according to latest reports, Nana Patekar’s NGO, Naam Foundation filed a defamation suit of Rs 25 crore against actor Tanushree Dutta, after she made remarks. The Bombay High Court has asked Tanushree to refrain from making any allegations against the foundation.

According to a report published in Mumbai Mirror, the court order reads: “That pending the hearing and final disposal of the present suit, this Hon’ble court be pleased to restrain the defendant (Tanushree Dutta) from further publishing or using in any way the said defamatory press conference or its contents to the plaintiff’s reputation with respect to siphoning of funds, bribery, subverting police and judicial system, collecting funds on a false pretext, improper maintaining of the plaintiff’s (Naam Foundation) accounts.”
Meanwhile, Tanushree is now filing a reply and also mentioned seeking a CBI investigation for the same. She told Mumbai Mirror, “The suit is a clear indication of how far Nana Patekar can go to trouble and silence me whenever I point out corruption (sic).”
In 2018, Dutta had alleged that Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of ‘Horn Ok Please’ in 2008 while shooting for a special dance number for the movie, and went on to file an FIR against the ‘Welcome’ star. However, Patekar refuted all allegations.
