Coming back to the #MeToo wave, it started in the country when Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta accused veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct during the shooting of her 2008 film Horn Ok Please. The actor said she had detailed her ordeal in 2008 as well but there was no outcome. She also named Nana Patekar as her abuser, alleging that he had demanded that she shoot an intimate dance step with her.
After putting forward her story, Tanushree even filed a written complaint against Nana Patekar and now her advocate Nitin Satpute submitted an application at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai on Saturday, asking Nana Patekar, Ganesh Acharya, Samee Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang to undergo narco-analysis, brain mapping and lie detector tests.
