Mumbai, Oct 3: After a lot of Bollywood celebs spoke in support of Tanushree Dutta over her allegations of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar on the sets of the 2008 film Horn OK Please, veteran actor Shakti Kapoor laughed the matter off, stating that the incident took place 10 years ago and he was a kid back then.
When asked to comment on the issue, he told ANI, “I have just returned from the US yesterday, I had been there for Ganpati Bappa’s pooja. I don’t know anything about this case.”

Dutta in the recent interview alleged that Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of the film ‘Horn Ok Please’. She had accused Patekar of harassing her while shooting for a special dance number in the movie, and also accused dance choreographer Ganesh Acharya of teaming up against her.
Dutta has garnered support from many in the film industry which include names such as Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna, Hansal Mehta, Richa Chadha and Swara Bhasker, Varun Dhawan among others.
Meanwhile, Nana’s lawyer has said they served Tanushree a legal notice seeking an apology for making false claims. Tanushree, however, again denied receiving any such notice from anyone.
