Actor Tanushree Dutta, who recently made headlines after she emerged from a sabbatical and faced reporters' questions on her shape, has sensationally accused veteran Nana Patekar as her harasser. The Bollywood beauty also claimed that numerous directors and the actors of the Indian film fraternity are equally obscene but no one dares to point them out because of the fear of losing roles and opportunities.

Aashiq Banaya Aapne actress Tanushree Dutta said, "The thing is that our country has become so hypocritical, and people constantly ask why #MeToo movement is not happening in India, it won't happen unless and until you'll acknowledge what happened with me in 2008".

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. And that everybody knows how Rude is Nana to women but none spoke about it. Tanushree gave a detailed account of how the male actor had forced himself into a "solo" dance sequence, touched her inappropriately and even demanded an intimate scene be retroactively added to the film.

Tanushree also added that she feels that there is no scope for improvement in the industry, "Akshay Kumar has made few films with Nana Patekar in last eight years and Rajinikanth also recently worked with him (in Kaala)". How much they do and how much they don't know, no one knows.

Tanushree Dutta was signed for a special appearance in a song in "Horn OK Pleassss", which she had to drop, owing to Nana Patekar's inapproporiate behaviour allegedly. We can not expect change until what happened to me in 2008 is acknowledged, she had said. The actress explained how Nana pulled and pushed her on the sets physically harassing her in the presence of the director, producer and the choreographer who were just dumb. The actor also blamed him for beating and molesting women and female actors. The issue had come to light in 2008, but Nana Patekar had then denied it, saying Tanushree was his "daughter's age".
