The point where the #MeToo campaign gained full-fledged momentum in India was when Tanushree Dutta rekindled a 2008 case of sexual harassment that she faced which was responsible for her exit from Bollywood. She levelled allegations against one of the most respected and veteran actors, Nana Patekar, followed by which the case has now taken a legal route. The actress has filed a complaint against Patekar at the Oshiwara police station and the officials have taken the proceedings further by summoning Sudhir Panday, who was then in the committee of CINTAA.
In earlier reports and even in interviews, Tanushree Dutta had revealed that when Nana Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasss, she had approached CINTAA for help. The Cine and Television Artists Association not only confirmed about the actress reporting the accusations against Nana to them but they also confessed that they had overlooked her complaint then. Now, CINTAA is currently cooperating with the police investigations and past reports also state that they have submitted the documents related to Dutta’s complaint of the 2008 case. The latest update is that CINTAA member and actor Sudhir Panday has now recorded his statement with the police.
On the other hand, police officials too have asserted about Sudhir recording his statement in recent reports wherein it was also added that the others involved in the case will be summoned too.
