The police may have given a clean chit to actor Nana Patekar, but actress Tanushree Dutta is not giving up just yet. The actress is likely to file a petition at the Bombay High Court in the coming days. 

On Thursday, the Mumbai Police investigating the case submitted the report in court which stated that they didn't found any evidence against Nana gave him a clean chit. 

Now, Dutta's lawyer Nitin Satpute has stated that they are yet to receive the official report from the police and only after receiving the B-Summary report, they will file a writ petition and challenge the report in the Bombay High Court.

A 'B-Summary' report is filed when the police do not find any evidence against the accused person to file a charge sheet and seek trial.

As Patekar was given a clean chit, Dutta had stated that she was not surprised or shocked. "I'm neither shocked nor surprised being a woman in India, this is something we all have got used to. I mean if rape accused Alok Nath got a clean chit and returned to movies then surely it was not going to be difficult for harassment accused Nana Patekar to get himself or shall we say buy himself a clean chit to continue to bully hapless young women.”

She added, “But the proof is in the pudding and a gentle reminder to the Indian public to watch the video of my car being mercilessly attacked and broken while I and my family tried to escape from these monsters on ‘Horn OK Please’ set 10 years ago. After this, if you still decide to watch their movies and support then it's your bad karma. You are a corrupt people with no justice but Gods justice will rain on you someday hopefully and will avenge for all the humiliation, insult, harassment, judgment and trauma I have had to endure in the last 10+ years because of this attitude.”

In October 2018, Tanushree had accused Nana Patekar of behaving inappropriately with her on the sets of her film ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ back in 2008. She had alleged that the actor had forcefully tried to introduce intimate steps into the choreography of a special song in the film which Dutta was a part of. According to her, choreographer Ganesh Acharya had refused to intervene. Tanushree, eventually, had walked out of the film and Rakhi Sawant replaced her in the song.
