Bollywood actress Daisy Shah has been summoned by the Mumbai Police in connection with the sexual misconduct case involving actors Nana Patekar and Tanushree Dutta.
Dutta had filed an FIR against Patekar in Mumbai’s Oshiwara police station, accusing him of behaving inappropriately on the set of Horn Ok Pleasss while shooting a song in 2008. Dutta has also accused choreographer Ganesh Acharya, film director Rakesh Sarang and producer Samee Siddique of being a silent spectator to everything that happened on the set. Daisy Shah, who was working as an assistant choreographer for Acharya back then, has been asked to record a statement regarding the case.
Recently, a senior officer told Mid Day, “We will record statements of everyone present on the sets when the alleged incident took place. Shah has been asked to record her statement at the police station whenever she is comfortable, within a week or two.”
Previously, speaking to News 18 about the incident, the Race 3 actress had said, “I was just an assistant choreographer who knew nothing about what all was happening. I have nothing to say about it. My job over there was only to teach steps. I wasn’t the part of the internal conversation of what was happening and not happening. I was just like a random person who was shooting on that film.”
“I wasn’t only concentrating on one artiste; there were 30 other dancers on set. I wasn’t even in the position where I could even speak or I had to even notice anything because I was so busy with my own work. My all sympathies are with Tanushree but I swear I know nothing about it,” she added.
