Dutta had made the same allegations in 2008 and Patekar had denied them at the time.
"We've sent her a notice for making false allegations".
Janica Sequira in her series of tweets unveiled the actual event and unfold what was happened that day.
Bollywood star Nana Patekar, who plays the role of a policeman, poses for photographers during a media gathering to speak about his role in the Indian movie "Ab Tak Chhappan" (56 Until Now), in Mumbai, India March 3, 2004. "Her courage should be admired, not her intention questioned", Farhan said.
Taking to Twitter earlier this Friday morning Twinkle Khanna actor turned author tweeted about that before judging or shaming Tanushree Dutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this fearless woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of the superstars.
Mr. Patekar is now taking legal action. He was like, 'Mainaayun kya wahaan cues dene keliye (Should I come there to give the cues)?' Yeah, of course, there are good people in the industry. "Actor Swara Bhasker posted a video on Twitter with the caption, that could be read as, "#IBelieveYouTanushreeDutta".
In the same interview, Tanushree also exposed another director Vijay Agnihotri who told her to remove her clothes and give the lead actor Irrfan Khan cues, but Khan immediately refused such insistence of director and expressed displeasure over such ridiculous demand. There was a shoot going on of a dance sequence, so there was no question of Nana or that lady being alone.
Producer, author and wife of actor Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna tweeted: "Please read this thread before judging or shaming Tanushree Dutta - a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this fearless woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us!"
Richa tweeted, "It hurts to be #TanushreeDutta rn". What happened with Tanushree is one such incident.
"He was grabbing me by the arms, pushing me around then he would ask the choreographers to move and teach me how to dance, and the next thing I know he wanted to do was an intimate sequence with me. Suneil scolded that guy", Tanushree added. "I am not aware of this". Janice is my friend, and she is anything but an exaggerator or a liar. If we don't encourage their voices and instead vilify and question them, how will victims ever become survivors? "Stand up with them!" she continued.
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta tweeted: "India, in general, does not have a conducive work environment".
