NCW files complaint against Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri in Tanushree Dutta case


For the first time, an official complaint has been made in the ongoing Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar controversy. A complaint has been filed against Nana and Vivek Agnihotri in the National Commission for Women for sexually harassing, intimidating and inappropriate behaviour towards Tanushree. Besides, Nana and Vivek two more people have been named in the complaint.

The complaint has been filed against the allegations Tanushree levied against the actor that he misbehaved with her on the sets of 2008 film Horn Ok Pleasss. The complaint has been filed by social activist Gaurav Gulati. Vivek, who was the director of the film Chocolate has also been roped in the charge as he misbehaved with the Tanushree. Actors Suniel Shetty and Irrfan were the witness to the harassment that he meted out to her and stood up for Tanushree.

NCW(National Commission for Women) copies:

On this complaint, Tanushree told a leading daily, “I think this could be something done in public interest by an activist. I have not authorized officially anyone yet. I’m not aware of this.”

The complaint also lists incidents that did not take place in front of Tanushree like one where her friend overheard an actor talking in lewd and crass language to a casting director about her. The complaint also takes into account that the CINTAA did not treat her complaint seriously back in 2008 and did not provide her with justice.

Tanushree's allegations have opened a can of worms for Bollywood as many celebrities have come forward to lend their support to the actress. Her story has been corroborated by a senior journalist as well as the assistant director of the film Horn Ok Pleasss who were the eyewitnesses to the whole event.
