Mumbai, Feb 15: Bollywood actors Ameesha Patel and Sanjay Dutt had a fracas at Rohit Dhawan's sangeet ceremony in Goa last week.
The incident irked Dutt so much that he returned to Mumbai without attending the wedding, says a media report.
Ameesha came to the sangeet wearing a rather revealing chaniya-choli that left little of her cleavage to imagination.
Dutt,who is protective about the actress as she was good friends with his wife Maanayata until recently, asked her to cover up.
He even went one step ahead and draped her dupatta around her shoulders to make her look somewhat decent.
But this did not go down well with Ameesha Patel.
Ameesha and Maanayata are barely on talking terms any more.
Moreover, Dutt has refused two films that she had offered him under her new production house.
Last month, Ameesha approached Sanjay to do a film directed by David Dhawan, and another by Priyadarshan.
The actor refused both citing unavailabity of dates and things got strained between them.
Says an industry insider, Sanju is a very traditional guy and prefers that women don't wear revealing outfits.
He politely told her that she was like his sister and so she shouldn't dress like that.
He then took her dupatta which she had draped on one side and covered her bosom.
He never imagined that she would have a problem with that, but Ameesha just took off on him.
She started yelling at Dutt, saying, "Who are you to tell me such things" and that what she did was none of his business.
Sanjay was taken aback and quietly walked off.
The next day, he flew back to Mumbai.
Later, Ameesha said, Dutt had touched her inappropriately.
And now, sanjay is fuming.
He said: "I have always thought of Ameesha as a sister. I would've done the same with my sisters Priya and Namrata if I felt they were dressed unsuitably at an event.
"I would never disrespect a lady. I have never ever done that in my life.
"Moreover, I have always tried to help Ameesha. If she has been saying these things about me, I will lose respect for her and she will lose a wellwisher."
And now Ameesha has changed her tune. She told Bombay Times: "Sanju is very protective about me. He's a dear friend and can never misbehave.I
"In fact,he would kill if someone tried to touch me inappropriately.
"All this cheap talk of him misbehaving with me is sheer nonsense and is being spread by jealous losers."
