The Tanushree Dutta‘s sexual harassment allegations case against Nana Patekar doesn’t seem to take a rest anytime soon. With many Bollywood celebs coming ahead to support Tanushree in the matter, the issue is only getting more eyeballs by both media and the audience. After Sonam Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Twinkle Khanna, Swara Bhakser and others spoke out on Twitter, Tanushree has released a new statement in the media. The actress has revealed that Nana Patekar is still harassing her with “legal threats and intimidation tactis.”
The actress’ media representative has said in a statement that Tanushree is also upset about filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan‘s stance on the issue. The actress feels that by posting a picture with Nana on social media, Khan has made it clear how she is looking at the entire controversy. The statement reads, “Tanushree is upset about two things. Farah’s Instagram post has appalled her. Being a woman herself, Farah has made her stand very clear by going ahead with Nana for the Housefull shoot”.

It also adds, “A man who is claiming to be Nana Patekar‘s advocate is calling up people close to Tanushree and media houses alike, threatening to drag Tanushree to court for speaking up. Even after ten years, Nana Patekar is still harassing Tanushree Dutta with legal threats and intimidation tactics while the whole world is watching”.

In an interview with India Today, Nana’s lawyer, Rajesh Shirodkar, revealed that he has decided to file a defamation complaint against the actress. He said, “(We will send a notice…) Basically denying the allegations and sending her a notice that her allegations are defamatory. We will initiate appropriate legal proceedings including filing a complaint for defamation.”
