New Delhi, Oct 6: Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta had created a storm when she accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of harassing her on the sets of the 2008 film ‘Horn Ok Please’.
Since then, many Bollywood celebs including Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna, Richa Chadha, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone and Varun Dhawan have supported Dutta for speaking up on the matter while others chose not to comment.
News agency ANI on Saturday shared a video on Twitter in which Nana can be seen reacting to the charges against him.
Patekar dismissed the accusation saying that ‘Jo jhhooth hai wo jhhooth hi hai’.

The ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ actress 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.
Tanushree has also been served a legal notice by Nana Patekar asking for an apology. The actress has also received a legal notice from filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri who, she claims, asked her to strip on the sets of 2005 film Chocolate. “This is the price you pay for speaking out against harassment, humiliation, and injustice in India,” Ms Dutta said of the notices.
