Nana Patekar: I don’t need others to validate my good conduct

Tanushree Dutta had claimed that everyone in the industry was aware of Nana Patekar’s misbehaviour with many women

Dutta alleged that Patekar, a Padma Shri and National Award-winning actor, misbehaved with her on the set of 2008's Horn OK Pleassss film, further saying that everyone in the industry is aware of Patekar's mistreatment of women but no one raised their voice against it.

She also posted on Twitter that she has chose to "boycott" the films of the three male actors. "There were 50-100 people on the set with me", Patekar said when asked about the allegations.

"We are in process of sending legal notice to Tanushree Dutta as she has made false allegations and has spoken untruth. He told the choreographers to stay away and began teaching me the dance steps", she told India Today Television.

Tanushree in response called Ganesh "a bloody liar" for being complicit in her abuse. Let me know and understand what is happening. @janiceseq85 was there at the time of the incident being debated today. Because I was not conscious of my lady parts, I didn't take her suggestion seriously. If we don't encourage their voices and instead vilify and question them, how will victims ever become survivors?

The Chocolate actor received plenty of support from stars such as Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar. "No one supported me", Dutta told Zoom TV in an interview. "We were on the set and there were 200 people sitting in front of us". To be alone, questioned. No woman wants publicity that opens the floodgates of trolling and insensitivity.What happened to her on set was intimidation. @janiceseq85 #TanushreeDutta." Meanwhile, Veere Di Wedding actress Sonam took Twitter to write, "I believe #TanushreeDatta and @janiceseq85 recollection of the account. There has to be some kind of explanation and in the absence of an explanation, nobody is going to believe this story that they were eyewitnesses and they kept quiet because of Nana's clout.




Cops arrived. Amidst this chaos, I got hold of Nana Patekar.

Comedian Bill Cosby has been sentenced upto 10 years in prison and has been branded a "sexually violent predator" by a U.S. court for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004. "Many of my co-workers, female and male have been harassed and bullied, but it's their story to tell". Let them speak up!

After those serious accusations, famous portal Mumbai Mirror got in touch with the actor to know the other side of the coin.

Richa praised Dutta for being courageous enough to open up about the harassment she faced during her time in the films.

Lucky for her, Irrfan Khan who was starring in the movie alongside her, Anil Kapoor, Suniel Shetty, Emraan Hashmi and others, stood up to the director.
