Tanushree Dutta was the one who started the #MeToo movement by filing a complaint against Nana Patekar and others like Ganesh Acharya, Rakesh Sarang and Sami Siddiqui.
Nana Patekar, who was not in town at the time, upon his arrival said that he was not allowed to speak anything about it.
But Nana Patekar has sent out a formal notice against Tanushree Dutta and has called her allegations baseless. The notice further goes back to the FIR lodged by Tanushree Dutta in 2008 with Goregaon Police Station and state that it is mentioned that she had a problem with a scene in Horn Ok Pleassss and not Nana in particular.
