Tanushree has said in a series of interviews that Nana harassed her on the sets of their 2008 film, Horn OK Pleasss, and demanded that she does a sexually explicit step with him.

Dutta said she had also received "violent threats" from the fringe, far-right nationalist group Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and has been hounded by a "smear campaign" on social media since reiterating her claims against the pair. "Although we have spoken and written to her (regarding the matter) she is yet to revert", Amit Behl, Senior Joint Secretary, CINTAA, told PTI. "We have sent a communication to Nana also", Behl added. It appears now that rules are meant to be broken. Ms Dutta renewed her allegations two weeks ago, after which Mr Patekar sent her a legal notice demanding she apologise. Addressing the assembled media, Patekar said, "My lawyer has asked me to not talk to any channel, have to listen to him". While Bollywood actors Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Swara Bhaskar, Richa Chadha have come out in support of Tanushree, Nana Patekar has dismissed all the allegations. Nana Patekar returned from shooting "Housefull 4" in Jaisalmer and was mobbed by the paps at the airport. There are women who marry someone because he is a powerful person.

As scores of women from media and entertainment industry open up about their harrowing experience of sexual harassment sparking a Me Too movement in India, Actor Pooja Bhatt has stated that not every man is a sexual predator.
