Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has alleged that she was sexually harassed by the veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar. The actress made revelations during a video interview with Zoom TV. She stated that the actor harassed her 10 years ago 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 about his background... 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 told Zoom TV. "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. She said, "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." According to the NDTV, Tanushree was signed for a song sequence in the Horn 'Ok' Pleassss which she quit because of Nana Patekar's behavior. Tanushree Dutta made her debut in Bollywood in 2009 with Aashiq Banaya Aapne.
