Finally! Amitabh Bachchan Breaks His Silence On The #MeToo Movement

Finally! Amitabh Bachchan Breaks His Silence On The #MeToo Movement

Dutta has accused Patekar of touching her inappropriately on the sets of a Bollywood film in 2008.

According to the ANI news agency, FIR has also been lodged against director Rakesh Sarang, producer Samee Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Recently, Farah Khan posted a picture with Nana Patekar, and Tanushree said she should have shame for supporting an actor who has harassed her.

The lawyer also submitted a 40-page statement on the alleged incident to police and Maharashtra State Women's Commission (MSWC).

"We have registered a case against Patekar and others under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC", additional commissioner of police (west region) Manojkumar Sharma told PTI. "Neither am I Tanushree Dutta nor Nana Patekar", was Bachchan's response when asked about the controversy that dates back to 2008.

Accompanied by her lawyer Nitin Satpute, Dutta recorded her statement against Nana Patekar following which the FIR was filed.

However, on the fourth day of the shoot, Patekar's behaviour was inappropriate as he was grabbing her by the arms and pushing her around on the pretext of teaching her some steps, the complaint said.

Dutta even complained to the choreographer, producer and director hoping some action would be taken and everything would be fine.

Dutta had sought the Commission's intervention after claiming that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her on the sets of a film in 2008. Having said that, Raveena also added that she is someone who is hard to mess with and further also mentioned that she would scare people off easily. Everyone was taking Patekar's side, she said. Therefore, she left the police station without recording a statement. Her main grievance of sexual harassment as well as the name of the culprit were reportedly left out from the complaint by the police. On the other hand, Raveena Tandon had called out to the men in a tweet earlier where she had mentioned that deafening silence on the Tanushree Dutta case is sickening.

"The complainant has stated that more than 100 people were present on the set at the time when the offence took place".
