In 2018, Tanushree Dutta made serious allegations against Nana Patekar. Despite the MeToo movement in India, the actor faced backlash from political groups, fans, and supporters of the veteran actor.

Tanushree accuses Nana Patekar of murder conspiracy

The former Miss India Universe 2004 took to her Instagram handle and captioned her post as, “How big a liar Nana Patekar is the whole world knows now after the Varanasi boy slapping incident. Nana first tried to made it look like to slap the kid was part of shoot & then he got severe public backlash for trying to cover up his abuse. Then he suddenly took a u turn & apologised half heartedly. Why take 6 years to respond to #metoo?? Il tell u why...because he knows dat I may be contemplating another FIR on Nana for conspiracy to murder, criminal intimidation & threat, stalking and cause physical harm. I went through severe harassment from unknown groups of people last few years. I was followed & stalked by strangers wherever I went. Freak Accidents and several attempts to poison me with various substances ensued relentlessly. There were a few attempts to corner me and manipulate me into dangerous situations with strangers too.”

Tanushree Dutta says Nana Patekar has underworld links

“A lot of weird stuff kept happening to me & around me & All of these people seemed like hired goons. The situations I was in and having to navigate through seemed very much like what SSR might have gone through but thank God I survived all this. No prizes for guessing who was behind all this given Nana's criminal background. ( Nana proudly boasts in youtube interviews about being closely related to deceased underworld gangster Manya Surve). He thought that I would be dead by now according to his plan but I survived. And now he is scared and his supporters base in Bollywood has dwindled. All those who supported him are either bankrupt, lost their status or have sidelined him. People can see through his manipulations now and thus he comes up with another major gaslight,” Tanushree added.

She concluded her post by calling Nana a ‘pathological liar' once again.

Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar's 2008 controversy

Tanushree had accused Nana of inappropriate conduct in 2008 and said he 'tried to sexually abuse' her while shooting a song sequence for Horn Ok Please (2009). She stated that although the song was supposed to be shot on a single actor, still Nana used to be present on the set. She had also filed a complaint with the Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) in 2008. However, no action was taken since it was a criminal case. In one of her interviews, the same year she alleged, “He (Nana Patekar) called the MNS party to bash up my car. He was behind everything and was supported by choreographer Ganesh Acharya.”

Tanushree made her Bollywood debut with the Emraan Hashmi-Sonu Sood starrer Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005). Her last theatrical release was Apartment (2010).
