Tanushree Dutta recently revived a 10-year-old controversy in which she alleged she was harassed by an actor. Former Miss India and Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta who had been away from the country for quite some time returned to India in July this year. In a recent interview with Zoom TV, Tanushree made a shocking revelation on Nana Patekar’s alleged indecent behaviour with her in 2009 on the sets of 2009 film Horn 'Ok' Pleassss.
“Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know 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 said.
Tanushree added, “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.”
Tanushree had earlier, filed a complaint with Cine and Television Artistes Association (CINTAA) for damage to her property and reputation. Tanushree was replaced by Rakhi Sawant in the movie, after she brought up the matter of Nana Patekar’s alleged misbehaviour. Aashiq Banaya Aapne actress said, “The less said about him, the better. If a co-star behaves in the manner he did with me, others will definitely take us for granted.”
Tanushree Dutta debuted in 2005 film Aashiq Banaya Aapne, co-starring Emraan Hashmi and Sonu Sood. She starred in films like Dhol, Good Boy, Bad Boy and Apartment, which was her last onscreen appearance.
