  • Nana Patekar

A movement, on the lines of the Hollywood's #MeToo, has started after actor Tanushree Dutta levelled the allegations against Nana Patekar, with more women sharing on social media their horrifying experiences of sexual harassment in the entertainment and media industry.

"We have asked them (Mr Patekar and the others) to present their side within 10 days".

The commission also asked film producers, media houses and cine artistes' associations to set up an internal committee to address complaints filed by women in Bollywood. After an episode of several press conferences and interviews, actress finally filed a complaint in Oshiwara police station.

"Dutta visited the police station last night and submitted a written complaint", Shailesh Pasalwar, a Mumbai police inspector, told AFP.

Nana Patekar has outrightly denied the allegations against him.

A message was sent to mediapersons by Nana's son Malhar. "Will let you know about the further proceedings soon, regards".

Ms Dutta had accused Mr Patekar of harassing her on the sets of a film in 2008 and also named others, including choreographer Ganesh Acharya, in her complaint. Nana Patekar's lawyer has already sent a legal notice the actress for maligning the image of his client and has demanded publicly apology from her.

Former Miss Universe contestant Tanushree Dutta first alleged in 2008 that multi-award-winning Nana Patekar behaved inappropriately towards her during the making of a romantic comedy the same year.

She had also claimed that Nana demanded she should shoot a lewd step with him and when she refused, members of a political party were called who threatened her and vandalised her vehicle.
