Nana Patekar finally addresses the media in Tanushree Dutta's harassment controversy

Nana Patekar finally addresses the media in Tanushree Dutta's harassment controversy”

Mr Patekar is now filming Housefull 4 with actor Akshay Kumar, whose wife Twinkle Khanna and other celebrities have publicly supported Tanushree Dutta. The video, which had been doing the rounds on the Internet, had been edited to make it seem like Kumar was commenting on Tanushree Dutta's allegations against Patekar, reports News18. Actor Hrithik Roshan, whom Mr Bahl is directing in Super 30, has said that a "harsh stand" will be taken against the filmmaker if he is proved guilty - Mr Bahl's former business partners Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane have said in tweets that they believe he is. Soon after the complaint was lodged, the YouTube channel which uploaded the video, removed it. She (Tanushree) is younger than my child.

The incident can be traced back to the year 2008, when Tanushree Dutta was shooting with Nana Patekar for a song in the film Horn Ok Pleassss. But the reality is something else.

In the same video, a reporter told Nana that Tanushree has made several allegations against the makers of the film, saying, "I'm not able to do the rehearsals, I'm not able to do the dance steps that is why I am being put down on the set even though I was giving a lot of time on the set". If she has been shunned by people around her and told that she would be thrown out of her job, then we have some serious issues in our society to deal with. Bollywood's cliquey nature also made it hard to go public, she said. The police cited that Akshay noticed that the video could hamper his reputation in public. Watch it from 2 minutes 25 seconds to know what the exact question was.

According to HT, an officer said the person who uploaded the video may face action under the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act.
