"My client further states that in the year 2008 father of Dutta had lodged an FIR with Goregaon Police Station wherein it was alleged that Dutta informed her father that she did not like one scene with Nana Patekar and she requested the choreographer to change that scene however the choreographer did not agree to the same". He does insane things but I don't think he can do such a thing. What is the media to do with it?

The movement that started in the entertainment industry has now snowballed into a major movement with the naming of Union Minister MJ Akbar, who has finally resigned after at least 11 women journalist called him out for sexual harassment during his stint in the media industry. Now, MNS party chief Raj Thackeray has come out in support of Patekar. "Women must raise their voice when they face oppression, not after 10 years".

Although Raj believed that Nana Patekar is "crazy and indecent" at times but said that he believes that the allegations surfaced against the actor-activist Nana Patekar of sexual harassment by actor Tanushree Dutta is false and Nana is innocent. We will teach a lesson to accused. Mr Thackeray claimed that the movement might have been fuelled in a bid to divert attention from skyrocketing petrol prices, dip in rupee value against dollar and unemployment in the country. She had then said, "If what happened to me 10 years ago hasn't been addressed and hasn't been brought to justice, then how can any movement happen here?"

On September 25, Dutta accused Patekar of sexually harassing her in 2008 on the sets of the film Horn "Ok" Pleassss.
