Tanushree Dutta, in a recent tell-all interview to Zoom Channel, revealed how Nana Patekar tried to sexually harass her on the sets of their film Horn OK Pleassss. When some of the actors, including names like Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan, were questioned on this horrific incident, they refused to comment on the episode. This silence was both surprising and disturbing. However, Dutta has finally found support from people like Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Farhan Akhtar and Twinkle Khanna.
A journalist, who was present on the sets of the above film in 2008, seconded Dutta’s allegations and stated things were indeed very horrific on the sets. This is what she had to say:-
