Nana Patekar gets mobbed on his return to Mumbai after Jaisalmer shoot — Pics inside

"I would say what I said 10 years back, the truth doesn't change".

Tanushree Dutta slams Salman Khan and Bigg Boss over Nana Patekar Controversy. Police officers and Akshay's spokesperson confirmed the actor submitted a complaint on Friday at the police station at Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC).

She accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss a decade ago. "If you want to know anything ask the director and producer". "We have sent a communication to Nana also", Behl added.

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has filed a complaint with the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai Police, saying that a video is being circulated in which his statements are being made to look like he is commenting on the ongoing Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar row. Dutta has said that Patekar had harassed her during the shooting of a film in 2008 and she had spoken out about the incident but nothing happened and she was even thrown out of the film. At a time when #MeToo debate was heating up after Tanushree's allegations, Nana was busy shooting for Housefull 4 in Rajasthan.

Nana had dismissed the allegations while a journalist and an assistant director on the film corroborated Tanushree's account.

But emboldened by the global #MeToo campaign - where women have shared accounts of harassment or assault - Dutta repeated the allegations in a recent interview and on Saturday went to the police to officially report the 2008 sexual harrassment claims.

Several actors from Bollywood lauded Dutta for talking about this incident but there were some celebrities who questioned her for not taking a legal route.

"Nana Patekar's behaviour was inappropriate towards me, he was on the set despite (the fact) his work in the song was over".
