It all started when earlier in an interview with Zoom TV, Tanushree Dutta made accusations on Nana Patekar for misbehaving and sexually harassing her while shooting, on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss during 2008. After the incident, she refused and left the sets and then frustrated actor called the workers of his friend’s (Raj Thackeray) political party (Maharastra Navnirman Sena) to intimidate her by attacking car and sets.
She had revealed the entire episode during an interview and also mentioned that she had tried to complain back then but nobody stood up for her. As a result she left the industry and went to USA. Now, after her complaint, the Mumbai Police has come into action and the entire nation is backing her with support. A lot of Bollywood actors also came in support of Tanushree and thus, her complaint fuelled the start of #MeToo movement in Bollywood.
