Tanushree Dutta to lodge fresh statement to police

Tanushree Dutta to lodge fresh statement to police

Accusing a well known actor Nana Patekar, Tanushree said that he tried to tamper with her.

As of now, no arrest has been made, he said.

A few days ago, Tanushree registered a molestation case against Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang and producer Sami Siddiqui.

In 2008, Tanushree's father Tapan Kumar Dutta had lodged a complaint with the Oshiwara Police but no progress was achieved.

Actor Tanushree Dutta's lawyer on Wednesday submitted a 40-page document to the Mumbai police and state women's commission to support her recent complaint lodged at Oshiwara Police Station.

In her complaint, Dutta has alleged that at the insistence of Patekar, Sarang and Acharya had included him in a song that was initially supposed to feature only Dutta.

Dutta claimed that a subsequent complaint she registered with the Cine And TV Artistes' Association was closed without proper investigation even as she was under "tremendous shock and trauma" and suffered monetary and professional losses.

Catalysing the MeToo movement in India, Tanushree also accused filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri of sexual misconduct and said that he asked her to remove her clothes and dance with co-star Irrfan Khan on the sets of Chocolate.

The alleged harassment took place on the fourth day of the shoot on March 26, she says. In her complaint application, she revealed that the police had not done enough the first time. This is not the first time an FIR has been filed for the case; in 2008, Tanushree's father Tapan Dutta had filed a case after her vehicle was attacked while leaving the sets of Horn Ok Please, however, there was no outcome for the case. A senior police official said witnesses who were present in the studio at the time would be summoned and their statements recorded one by one. Tanushree also featured in several other films including Chocolate, Dhol, Bhagam Bhag, Good Boy Bad Boy and Apartment.

The actor filed an FIR in the year 2008 when it all happened but no action was taken against it.
