Tanushree Dutta has finally lodged a police complaint against Nana Patekar at Oshiwara Police station. She has filed a written complaint citing what happened with her ten years back on the sets of the film Horn OK Pleasss. The cops will first investigate the facts and later take a decision. This complaint may bring trouble for Nana Patekar. It is a written complaint and not an FIR.

Tanushree has filed the complaint against Nana, Ganesh Acharya, producer Sameer Siddiqui, director Rakesh Sarang and MNS workers. Tanushree in her complaint said she filed the complaint to register FIR under section 354, 354 (A), 509 and 34 of IPC against all the above people. She has alleged Nana of sexual harassment and intimidation.

In her complaint, she said, “On 23rd March 2008 I was shooting for a song in the film Horn OK Pleasss at Filmistan studio 3. The song was supposed to be solo on me only. Nana Patekar having only one line in the entire song which was not part of my choreography rehearsal which took place on 17, 18 and 20 March 2008 at Shirique hall under the supervision of choreographer Ganesh Acharya. Before the shoot, I had clearly said I will not enact or perform any lewd or vulgar steps."

She further added, "On the 4th day of shoot 26th March, while the shoot was going on, Nana Patekar's behaviour was inappropriate towards me, he was on the set despite his work in the song was over. He was grabbing me by the arms and pushing me towards me around on the pretext of teaching me how to dance. When he was touching indecently and unnecessary than I felt very uncomfortable because of his behaviour and I felt he has outraged my modesty and embarrassed. He told other staffs and choreographer to step away so that he can teach me dance even though he was not the choreographer.”

She further added, “I complain this to the producer, director, and choreographer, hoping they will take action. When I returned back from my Vanity Van after an hour I was told that a few more steps are added in the song which is with Nana Patekar and all very intimate with him. I refused to do any such steps. I was forced to do the steps by the director, producer, and choreographer and all the while when it was happening, Nana Patekar stayed on the set listening to everything.”

Tanushree’s claims have been vouched by two eyewitnesses and a video has also surfaced on the internet which shows a mob attacking her car.
