about the video

Actress Tanushree Dutta has alleged that Bollywood veteran leader Nana Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her on the sets of the 2008 film, Horn OK Pleassss. Speaking to ANI, Dutta said that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her and her complaint to the makers went unaddressed. “He misbehaved on the sets. He was being aggressive and was pushing me around. I complained about him, but it was not heard. They (film crew) were forcing me to do an intimate step. My contract stated that it was a solo dance sequence,” she told ANI. Patekar, a Padma Shri and National Award winner, did not respond to Hindustan Times’ requests for a comment. The #MeToo movement began with allegations of sexual harassment and rape against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and triggered a global movement. Indian actors such as Radhika Apte, Richa Chadda, Swara Bhasker and Konkona Sen Sharma have spoken about it, without revealing names.
