Amitabh Bachchan And Aamir Khan Neatly Dodge Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar Question

During a media interaction, Tanushree stated that everyone in Bollywood knows about the dark history of Nana Patekar but nobody ever spoke about it clearly.

Recounting the incident and its aftermath, she claimed she tried to escape but the situation went from being a "harassment situation to a mob lynching situation".

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)". She added that the producer and director were complicit in her harassment and did not heed her complaints about Nana Patekar.

Speaking to Zoom TV, Dutta alleged that Patekar would trouble her on the set and asked to be included as part of an "intimate step" in what was supposed to be Dutta's solo dance number.

Tanushree also alleged that he called goons to the set, who vandalised her auto as she attempted to leave. Ten years ago, he had expressed surprise at the charges and said, "Tanushree is my daughter's age and I have no clue what made her say such things about me".

Horn Ok Pleassss director Rakesh Sarang said that Tanushree had "misjudged everything", including Nana Patekar's "encouragement". "People keep mum because of this ideology that this person had a name so how do we speak against this person", she said. Despite the fact that members of the media were present on set, no one stood by her and the actress was left to fend for herself. He was shooting for a song after many years, so he was excited about it. "But if something has happened, it is always sad and people should investigate".

In a recent time, many actresses have discussed about such incidents openly, exposing the dark side of industry but Tanushree Datta accusing the ace actor has surely taken everyone by shock.

"I was a cub reporter in 2008, assigned by Aaj Tak and Headlines Today to cover the BTS of a song being shot for this film".

She also reacted to choreographer Ganesh Acharya, who she has accused of being complicit with Patekar, refuting the allegations.

Ganesh also denied that goons had come on set and vandalised Tanushree's auto and harassed her family. Aamir Khan said something similar - that without knowing the veracity of the issue he could not comment.
