Actor Tanushree Dutta fearlessly spoke about facing sexual harassment at the hands of veteran actor Nana Patekar over a week ago. Just when we thought the name of the perpetrator had been called out, she named another filmmaker who tried to repeat what Nana did. We are talking about Vivek Agnihotri, who directed the actor in Chocolate in 2005. Tanushree stated how Vivek asked her to strip down for a particular shot so that her co-star Irrfan Khan could give the required expressions.
Now, the filmmaker has come out and refuted all the allegations. He took to his Twitter account and wrote a post about this issue. Have a look right here:-

He hasn’t spoken on his own but the statement has been made on the behalf of his lawyer. Dutta has now been slapped with two legal notices, the other by Patekar. The actor is likely to be back from the Housefull 4 shoot in Jaisalmer tomorrow and hold a press conference along with choreographer Ganesh Acharya to counter all her allegations.
