Amidst the Nana Patekar and Tanushree Dutta sexual harassment controversy, a video featuring Akshay Kumar allegedly speaking against Tanushree went viral. While actresses like Kangana Ranaut, Twinkle Khanna and Priyanka Chopra came out in support of her, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and the makers of Horn Ok Please Rakesh Sarang and Samee Siddiqui have rubbished all the allegations. As per latest reports, Bollywood sensation Tanushree Dutta stated that she will now take the help of the Maharashtra Women Commission.

Nana Patekar has outrightly denied the allegations against him.

Former Miss Universe contestant Tanushree Dutta first alleged in 2008 that multi-award-winning Nana Patekar behaved inappropriately towards her during the making of a romantic comedy the same year. Dutta also said that she received threats of a "violent attack" from activists of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena political party when she had protested the incident ten years ago. She disclosed how before shooting the song, she had clearly noted that she will not endorse or do any lustful, ill-mannered or bumpy steps.

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has filed a complaint with the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai Police, saying that a video is being circulated in which his statements are being made to look like he is commenting on the ongoing Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar row. "After recording her statement, we will decide the next action", Nitin Satpute added up.


We were then taken to the police station and my statement was recorded but not as per the complaint.

She also lodged a complaint with CINTAA in March 2008.

Patekar, who was shooting for upcoming film "Housefull 4" in Jodhpur, landed here Saturday. A beleaguered Nana also said his lawyers have asked him not to speak to the media as the matter is sub-judice.
