Remember Tanushree Dutta, the beauty queen turned actress who left the industry even before she could leave a mark? If you follow her on social media, you’d know that she has now taken a spiritual route and has shifted to the United States. She is obviously no more a part of the Bollywood industry and has been out of work for several years now.
What seems like an attempt to make a comeback in the Hindi entertainment world, Tanushree was recently interviewed by a fashion channel that asked her about her work and things she didn’t like here. Talking to the host, Tanushree opened up about her experience with Nana Patekar, how he was rude to her and also allegedly harassed her while shooting for a film.
She said that most people are aware of Nana’s behaviour, that he is rude to women. He has beaten actresses on the sets, he has harassed them.
Tanushree, while shooting for film ‘Horn OK’ in 2008, had alleged that Nana had harassed, pushed and intimidated her on the sets of the film. She recounted that time in the interview and said that she was to perform a solo number according to her contract but Nana insisted on doing the song together. She recalled allegedly that Nana started misbehaving with her from the start but no publication has ever published anything of the kind.
She said in the interview that she complained to the producer and director about him pulling her and teaching dance but no one listened. She also called out stars like Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth for working with Nana Patekar in spite of knowing all this.
