Nana Patekar finally addresses the media in Tanushree Dutta's harassment controversy

Cine and TV Artists Association (CINTAA) said it is ready to readdress Tanushree Dutta's sexual harassment allegation against Nana Patekar "by conducting a fair and expeditious" inquiry.

Actor Tanushree Dutta has now knocked the doors of the Maharashtra Women Commission. She also named choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang and producer Sami Siddiqui as accomplices in the harassment she faced.

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has filed a complaint with the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai Police, saying that a video is being circulated in which his statements are being made to look like he is commenting on the ongoing Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar row.

"We have filed a police complaint, they are investigating the matter and tomorrow (Sunday) they have called her (Dutta) for recording her statement", Satpute told PTI.

Tanushree Dutta has alleged that veteran actor Nana Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her.

"When he was touching me indecently and unnecessary I felt very uncomfortable because of his behaviour, I felt he has outraged my modesty", the letter read.

But to her surprise, new steps were introduced by Acharya, which were intimate and included Patekar touching her inappropriately, she alleged.

Everyone was taking side of Patekar, she said.

On the way out, her auto was attacked but with the help of the police she managed to escape from the spot, it added.

She has been offered to be part of the controversial reality show in the past too. Dutta also said that she received threats of a "violent attack" from activists of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena political party when she had protested the incident ten years ago. Nana Patekar who came back to the city from shooting a movie, he got by the media people and the only thing he stated was, "Main dus saal pehle de chuka hu iska jawab". The 67-year-old star's lawyer has sent a legal notice to Tanushree for allegedly making false accusations against him and demanded an apology.
