en Bollywood News Tanushree Dutta levels new allegations against Nana Patekar, accuses him of criminal intimidation: “Freak accidents and several attempts to poison me with various substances ensued relentlessly”

She pointed out a past controversy where Patekar slapped a child on set, initially claiming it was part of the script after facing public outrage and apologizing.

In 2018, Tanushree Dutta ignited India's #MeToo movement by accusing veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of a film in 2008. Despite the movement gaining momentum, Dutta faced backlash. Now, she has escalated her accusations, alleging "criminal intimidation" and "physical harm" at the hands of Patekar.

Tanushree Dutta took to Instagram, highlighting Patekar's recent denial of her claims. She pointed out a past controversy where Patekar slapped a child on set, initially claiming it was part of the script after facing public outrage and apologizing. Dutta questioned the timing of his #MeToo denial, suggesting it stems from her considering further legal action. She wrote, “How big a liar Nana Patekar is the whole world knows now after the varanasi boy slapping incident. Nana first tried to made it look like to slap the kid was part of shoot & then he got severe public backlash for trying to cover up his abuse. Then he suddenly took a u turn & apologised half-heartedly. Why take 6 years to respond to #metoo??”

The former Miss India Universe 2004 detailed a series of disturbing experiences. She alleged being followed and stalked by strangers, encountering "freak accidents," and attempts to poison her. She claimed these incidents were aimed to silence her and manipulate her. She continued, “I'll tell u why...because he knows that I may be contemplating another FIR on Nana for conspiracy to murder, criminal intimidation & threat, stalking and cause physical harm. I went through severe harassment from unknown groups of people last few years. I was followed & stalked by strangers wherever I went. Freak Accidents and several attempts to poison me with various substances ensued relentlessly. There were a few attempts to corner me and manipulate me into dangerous situations with strangers too.”

She added, “A lot of weird stuff kept happening to me & around me & All of these people seemed like hired goons. The situations I was in and having to navigate through seemed very much like what SSR might have gone through but thank God I survived all this. No prizes for guessing who was behind all this given Nana's criminal background. ( Nana proudly boasts in youtube interviews about being closely related to deceased underworld gangster Manya Surve). He thought that I would be dead by now according to his plan but I survived. And now he is scared and his supporters base in Bollywood has dwindled. All those who supported him are either bankrupt, lost their status or have sidelined him. People can see through his manipulations now and thus he comes up with another major gaslight.”

She concluded, “Nana Patekar is a pathological liar. Every director he has ever worked with has a story to tell about his manipulative & abusive behaviour on set. So all of them are liars too?? If he can slap and hit directors then misbehavior with women is no big deal for him, don't you think?? Even Veteran actress Dimple Kapadia called him "obnoxious" in a viral YouTube interview. She is a liar too?? What about the Varanasi boy whom he slapped and who came in media and said that he was not part of any shoot and that he just got slapped for no reason. He is a liar too?”

Dutta's initial harassment complaint against Patekar was dismissed in 2019 due to a lack of witnesses. Her new allegations, if pursued, could open a fresh investigation.
