Amitabh Bachchan refuses to comment on Nana Patekar harassment claims

"There were 50-100 people on set with me (at that time)..." He said, "I'll see, it's a waste talking". Whatever people want to say, they can say. She had reported the undesired behavior of the actor to producer Sami Siddiqui and director, Rakesh Sarang but none of them took any action. She was shooting what was supposed to be her solo song (later performed by Rakhi Sawant) when Nana Patekar was on set.

Tanushree in response called Ganesh "a bloody liar" for being complicit in her abuse. However, they did not pay heed to her complaint, and informed her shortly afterwards that there was a change and that she would now perform a "sexy dance" with Nana. "People in the industry know about his background. that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them, his behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it", she said during an interview with Zoom. Ganesh Acharya was the one who pressurised me to perform an intimate step.

Over 24 hours after the controversy surfaced, Bollywood has greeted Tanushree's story with a resounding silence.

The actor, a former Miss India-Universe who is now based in the U.S., also alleged that Patekar had the tacit support of the film's makers. "He was shooting for a song after many years, so he was excited about it".

As a rookie in 2017, Beathard started in five games, appearing in seven, and totaled four touchdowns and six interceptions. The 49ers officially lost starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the season.

Even though Bollywood largely distanced itself from joining the debate, there have been a few actors who spoke out about sexual harassment in the industry, albeit without naming the perpetrators. Post the incident on the sets of Horn OK Please, Nana Patekar called up this political party who has a reputation of lynching and causing damages on the sets. "Now whether such thing has happened it is for people to investigate it, don't think we can comment on it". Recalling the horrifying experience of being attacked while in a vehicle with her parents, she said, "My sister was at home".

Journalist Janice Sequeira penned a Twitter thread corroborating Tanushree's account of what happened a decade ago, while Ganesh Acharya has denied it.

In a recent TV interview, Dutta reiterated her claim that a veteran actor had misbehaved with her on the sets of a film. Amitabh Bachchan said that since he was unrelated to both Tanushree and Nana Patekar, he could not comment on the issue.
