Actress Tanushree Dutta has said that everyone in the industry knows about actor Nana Patekar’s “history of assaulting women”. She added that she was harassed by Nana Patekar on the sets during the shoot of ‘Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss’ in 2008. “People in the industry know…that he has beaten actresses…molested them…but no publication has printed anything about it,” she further said.
She further said, “Everyone has gossiped about this but have never spoken. People with this kind of character speak like this against the kind of character that I have because they say she does glamourous roles so must be glamorous and all. Behind the back, they are so dirty. When you are in the industry you hear so many stories about these actors. But these things never take surface because they are PR packaged very well. They will give some money to some poor farmers. How much they do and how much they don’t no one knows. But all this is just for show.”
She also talked about a friend who was overheard an actor talking to a casting director about choosing the female lead in a film. But instead of which was her last film or does she know how to act he said, “Deti hai kya.” She further said about the director saying ‘Aagar deti nhi hai to isko milegi nhi.‘
She said, “This is the attitude in Bollywood and all the film industries that are working in the country is because dete nhi ho toh film nhi milegi.”
