Balakrishna's Heroine Accuses Senior Actor of Sexual Harassment

Aashiq Banaya Aapne film is so popular that only few film lovers could have not known about the sensational sultry song. Tanushree Dutta, who acted in that film and few more films later stayed away from Bollywood since 2010 and moved to the USA to settle down. She acted in Balakrishna's Veerabhadra in Telugu. The actress recently returned to India and now she is on news everywhere.

Tanushree Dutta accused senior actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment during a special song for the film, from which she later opted out. She even stated that her complaint and protest against the senior actor's harassment is the reason behind her abrupt quit from the films, as the offers for her dried up drastically in Bollywood.

Tanushree claimed to have started the 'metoo' movement many years ago when she faced sexual harassment from Nana Patekar during the shoot of a special song in 'Horn OK Please' film. According to Tanushree, Nana Patekar pulled her hands and wanted the director to induce an intimate step which was not there earlier in the song, and it was meant to be a solo. Nana reportedly forced her to learn the dance steps from him, though few of the crew tried to stop him from doing so.

The actress revealed that the director Rakesh Saarang, producer Samee Siddiqui and Choreographer Ganesh Acharya could do nothing as Nana Patekar was a big star by then and she was a budding actress. Tanushree vented her anguish that nobody really cared about her serious concern on sexual harassment, though the news was aired on Tv for more than three days.

Tanushree Dutta is planning a comeback in Bollywood with a proper role and her sister Ishita Dutta has got a film for release this year, Lashtam Pashtam. Nana Patekar played antagonist in Rajinikanth's Kaala.
