The controversy revolving around Bollywood actors Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar has not only shaken the film industry but has also got a large section of the nation in a tizzy.
Such is the impact of the hullabaloo that the netizens are calling it the #MeToo movement of the B-town as many celebs have come out in favour of Tanushree and sort of drawn swords against Nana.
Tanushree had alleged that Nana harassed her 10 years ago on the sets of the film ‘Horn OK Pleassss.’ Amidst this controversy, producer-director-choreographer Farah Khan posted a picture of Housefull 4 cast flying away for the shoot which included Nana Patekar.
Her post reads as, “Taking the not so private charter flight to Jaisalmer. @kritisanon A very excited @hegdepooja @rimpleandharpreet n 4 1 st time on insta Nana Patekar(where is @chunkypanday ) @aasifahmedofficial @adrianjacobsofficial n 1 innocent bystander.”
After this Instagram post went viral, people started slamming Farah on social media. Tanushree was especially upset given the present circumstances. Reacting to Farah’s post, Tanushree’s spokesperson said, “Tanushree is upset about 2 things. Farah’s Insta post has appalled her. Being a woman herself, Farah has made her stand very clear by going ahead with Nana for her Housefull shoot.”
“Also a man who is claiming to be Nana Patekar’s advocate is calling up people close to Tanushree and media houses alike threatening to drag Tanushree to court for speaking up. Even after 10 years, Nana Patekar is still harassing Tanushree Dutta with legal threats and intimidation tactic while the whole world is watching,” added the spokesperson.
The former beauty queen, Tanushree recently also alleged that film director Vivek Agnihotri had asked her to “strip and dance” on the sets of Chocolate: Deep Secrets in 2005.
