Tanushree Dutta says the next hashtag for Bollywood should be 'I Will Not Work With Nana Patekar'

Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar

Tanushree Dutta, who starred in the Bollywood film Aashiq Banaya Aapne with Emraan Hashmi, shook the industry couple of weeks ago, after she accused veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. According to Tanushree Dutta, while working on a song with Nana in their 2008 movie Horn Ok Pleassss, the veteran actor tried to get her to do intimate steps with him with the help of director of the film Rakesh Sarang and choreographer Ganesh Acharya.

When the actress refused to do the intimate dance sequence with Nana and tried to leave, apparently the veteran actor called goons to intimidate her, as she continues to allege. The actress has made many comments on the issue over the last week or so. A n umber of Bollywood celebrities too have spoken in her support including the likes of Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker and Richa Chadha among others.

Be that as it may, Tanushree is still upset with the big production houses and other influential Bollywood celebs for not speaking up and condemning the actions of Nana Patekar and the team of Horn Ok Pleassss. The actress insists that the industry must unanimously boycott the veteran actor and refuse to work with him, Ganesh Acharya and Rakesh Sarang. (Also Read: Viral video!

“The support and all is fine, I am very grateful for it but where is the result? I want Bollywood to come forward and say we wont work with Nana Patekar. I understood and agreed that people believe me but the next hashtag should be I will not work with Nana Patekar, not just him but the other people too,” â€" the actress told Pinkvilla in an interview.

Upon what motivated her to take the fight up 10 years after the incident, the actress said that it is because she had nothing to lose. “I have nothing to lose, no? Any kind of moment happens by people who have nothing to lose. because people who have a lot to lose never come forward. Back then, I had a lot to lose, still I spoke. But that time I spoke because I had to prevent myself. This time it is for a far more greater cause,” â€" she added.

Meanwhile, news had dropped that Nana Patekar had sent a legal notice to the actress for maligning his image in public, however, Tanushree rubbished the reports stating that she would welcome such a legal course of action because in such a scenario, Nana Patekar would be implicated.
