Actress Tanushree Dutta opened up about a 10-year-old controversy, in which she alleged that she was harassed by an actor on the sets of 2009 film ’Horn ’Ok’ Pleassss’. Now for the first time, she pinned the blame on actor Nana Patekar.
In an interview with Zoom TV, Tanushree Dutta said that even though the industry insiders allegedly knew about Nana Patekar’s reportedly indecent behavior with women, no one spoke about it. She 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 behavior with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it."
Taking Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth’s names, Tanushree quipped, "Akshay Kumar has made few films with Nana Patekar in last eight years and Rajinikanth also recently worked with him (in Kaala)... If such big stars will keep working with these culprits then there’s no hope for any movement to happen."
"Everyone has gossiped about this but they’ve 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 know, no one knows. But all this is just for show," she added.
The actress debuted in 2005 film ’Aashiq Banaya Aapne’, co-starring Emraan Hashmi and Sonu Sood. She was last seen in the film ’Apartment’.
