Tanushree Dutta had received support from CINTAA (Cine & TV Artists Association) when she had opened up about the Nana Patekar incident but the present head of the association, Sushant Singh, said that the case can not be taken up now since it is older than 3 years.
After Tanushree Dutta has chose to stand up against sexual harassment, it has started a revolution of sorts in the country with the #MeToo movement gaining more and more momentum by the day.
Now the veteran actor has sent out a formal notice against Tanushree Dutta and has called her allegations baseless.
The "Me Too" movement gained momentum in India after Dutta came forward and took a stand against Nata Patekar. In a reply to the Cine and TV Artists' Association, which had issued a notice to him, Patekar claimed that contrary to her assertion, Dutta had not made any complaint against him in 2008, when the alleged incident took place.
Nana Patekar responds to the legal notice slapped by CINTAA against him for sexually harassing Tanushree Dutta on the sets of Horn OK Please. "Neither he outraged, much less misbehaved, with Dutta during the shooting of the said song, nor did he interfere with anyone during the shooting". Court will look into it. "Women must raise the voice when they face oppression, not after 10 years", Thackeray further added. However, many other celebs from the industry has come out in open and revealed Alok Nath's misconduct towards women. "Women must raise the voice when they face oppression, not after 10 years", the MNS chief said. We'll teach a lesson to accused. She also stated that Nana had sent out goons to vandalise her auto thanks to his connections with the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) party.
