Accompanied by her lawyer Nitin Satpute, Dutta recorded her statement against Nana Patekar following which the FIR was filed.

Mumbai police has lodged an FIR against actor Nana Patekar and three others on the basis of actor Tanushree Dutta's complaint of sexual harassment on the sets of a 2008 film and begun investigations, her lawyer said on Thursday.

"In between the shots, there were around 100 supporting staff including junior artists, dancers and others and Nana Patekar, against my will and consent, started grabbing me by the arms and pushing me around on the pretext of teaching me how to dance, even though he is not the choreographer. he was touching (me) indecently and unnecessary in front of everybody, but nobody objected and all were complicit in this behavior by being silent spectators", she alleges.

Following the actor's complaint the case was registered at Oshiwara Police Station against Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddhiqui and director of the movie, Rakesh Sarang, he said.


Back in 2008, Tanushree's father Tapan Kumar Dutta had filed an FIR when she allegedly underwent the ordeal and her vehicle was attacked while exiting the sets of "Horn Ok Pleasss".

"I felt very uncomfortable because of his behavior mentioned above and he has outraged my modesty I felt embarrassed like this his behavior was inappropriate towards me". She added that on October 5, days after she spoke out again after a decade, she was publicly embarrassed by comments allegedly made by Siddiqui in a television interview. As she left, she claimed that, Siddiqui had already called the media and workers of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena who chanted slogans and banged on her auto, allegedly preventing her from leaving the premises. This is not the first time an FIR has been filed for the case; in 2008, Tanushree's father Tapan Dutta had filed a case after her auto was attacked while leaving the sets of Horn Ok Please, however, there was no outcome for the case. Her lawyer stated that many parts of the complaint were not mentioned and the FIR was filed only for the offence of causing damage to her auto and riot.

The commission has also written to Mumbai police, seeking information on the action it had taken on Dutta's complaint in this regard. Her lawyer also said that the actress had received threats and was "pressurised to not take any action". "As part of the probe, we will record statements of all witnesses related to the case before summoning the accused", he said.
