Mumbai Police closes Tanushree’s case against Nana Patekar

Mumbai Police closes Tanushree’s case against Nana Patekar

In her original statement against Patekar, Tanushree had said, "Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women". Despite the fact that the actress came out to voice about the incident nearly a decade later, a police complaint was filed against Patekar.

The allegations by Tanushree Dutta, 35, are widely seen to be the start of a #MeToo campaign in India, a year after a similar moment gathered pace in the United States after several women went public against movie moghul Harvey Weinstein. You are a corrupt people with no justice but Gods justice will rain on you someday hopefully and will avenge for all the humiliation, insult, harassment, judgement and trauma I have had to endure in the last 10+ years because of this attitude.

"I'm neither shocked nor surprised being a woman in India this is something we all have got used to", she said. "... That is my hope finally, for a life without hope is like a candle without fire".

She concluded by saying that she still believes she will get justice. "I am exhausted of fighting alone against oppressors, bullies and a corrupt system", she said.

She had accused Nana Patekar's PR team of spreading false news and clarified that the investigation was still underway. Continue to expose these creeps through social media and other platforms so that in future people would think twice before troubling an innocent young girl. "How.only time will tell (sic)".

"The B Summary report has been submitted before the concerned court", Shailesh Pasalwar, senior inspector at the Oshiwara police station, told Mid-day.

Dutta's lawyer, Nitin Satpute further said, "We haven't yet received any official communication from the police yet. The police have not investigated the case properly so we are opposing summary reports and also going to file writ petition before the Bombay High Court", the lawyer added.

Dutta had filed a complaint in October a year ago, in which she had alleged that on the sets of "Horn Ok Pleasss" in 2008, Patekar had touched her inappropriately on the pretext of showing her dance steps, and also insisted on starring in the song sequence, which was supposed to be a solo performance. The FIR also named choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddhiqui and director Rakesh Sarang. She alleged that Patekar inappropriately touched her during the filming of the song sequence despite her making it clear she wasn't comfortable performing "lewd, vulgar or uncomfortable steps".
