Just as we thought that #MeToo movement was losing steam and momentum, there is now a new twist in Nana Patekar-Tanushree Dutta alleged sexual harassment case. Now, Mumbai Police has summoned Bollywood actress Daisy Shah for the investigation in the sexual assault case.
The whole controversy erupted when Tanushree Dutta, after 10 years, levelled allegations against Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her. The alleged incident took place on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’ in 2008. Now, according to a report in Mid-Day, a senior officer confirmed the development and said, “We will record statements of everyone present on the sets when the alleged incident took place.”
Daisy Shah, at that point in time, was an assistant choreographer of the said film and was assisting Ganesh Acharya. Ganesh Acharya has also been accused by Tanushree of being complicit with Nana.
Daisy Shah has been asked to record her statement at the police station within a couple of weeks. The ‘Race 3’ actress had earlier shown support for Tanushree Dutta, but said that she did not know what transpired on that day on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’.
In an interview given to a media, Daisy said, “We rehearsed for 3-4 days before shooting the song and on the sets also, for first 2 days, everything went very swiftly. On the third day, something happened which I am not aware of but Tanushree, being a woman, has come out and she has said that this is what she has gone through. So I totally sympathize with her.”
So, it would be interesting to know the latest developments in Tanushree-Nana’s case after Daisy’s deposition.
