In yet another major breakthrough in Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar row, the model-turned-actress on Saturday filed a fresh complaint, seeking a Narco analysis along with lie detector test in 2008 sexual harassment case, according to reports.
Early September, in an interview with Zoom TV, Dutta had accused Patekar of touching her inappropriately on the sets of 2008 Bollywood film Horn OK Pleaseee at Filmistan studio 3 in Mumbai. On Wednesday, Dutta reached the suburban Oshiwara police station to record her statement in connection to the same.
In her police complaint filed last week in Mumbai, Dutta claimed that during the shooting of a song sequence for the film, she was inappropriately touched by Patekar even after she had clearly mentioned that she will not perform lewd, vulgar or uncomfortable steps.
Dutta had also claimed that she had complained to the song's choreographer Ganesh Acharya, but she was forced to do scenes which were intimate and included Patekar touching her inappropriately. After she decided to walk out of the film, her car was vandalised by goons who, she alleged, were from the Raj Thackeray-led MNS.
The Maharashtra State Commission for Women on Tuesday issued notices to Patekar, producer Samee Siddiqui, Acharya and director Rakesh Sarang. The commission also wrote to Mumbai police, seeking information on the action it had taken on Dutta's complaint.
Patekar, however, has denied all such allegations, calling Dutta's claims a "lie". His lawyer has also sent a legal notice to the actress seeking an apology in connection to the same.
