Actor Nana Patekar on Monday cancelled a press conference where he was due to address the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by actress Tanushree Dutta.

The incident can be traced back to the year 2008, when Tanushree Dutta was shooting with Nana Patekar for a song in the film Horn Ok Pleassss. The MSCW issued notices to Nana Patekar, Rakesh Sarang, Ganesh Acharya among others.

According to Dutta's advocate Nitin Satpute, the actor will be giving a statement to the police on Sunday. The latest update is that Tanushree Dutta is now planning to file an FIR after a decade and her lawyer has further warned that if the actress doesn't get to do, he will approach the High Court.

In the note, Tanushree Dutta stated that she filed her complaint under Sections 354, 354 (A), Section 34 and Section 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). "He grabbed me by the arm and pushed me towards him around on the pretext of teaching me how to dance", read one part of the complaint.

She had also claimed that Nana demanded she should shoot a lewd step with him and when she refused, members of a political party were called who threatened her and vandalised her vehicle.


"This is the age-old saga of survivors in our nation", she said.

She then called her parents and manager, who questioned Patekar's actions. "I am claustrophobic anyway, I need to move around", she added.

We were then taken to the police station and my statement was recorded but not as per the complaint.

She also lodged a complaint with CINTAA in March 2008. The incident is said to have happened in 2001, according to the woman.

The commission has sent notices to those named by Ms Dutta and asked them to reply within 10 days with their response, its chairperson, Vijaya Rahatkar, said.
