Mumbai: The Oshiwara police on Thursday booked actor Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang and producer Samee Siddiqui for sexually harassing and molesting Tanushree Dutta during a film shoot in 2008.

Apparently both the sections are bailable since the old Amended law, which was before 2013 is implemented on this case, as the incident took place in 2008. He answered questions ranging from his birthday plans, upcoming projects, his unfulfilled dreams including sexual harassment at the workplace - the one question Bollywood hasn't been too keen on answering. "But it can not be applied in a retrospective manner for an incident that took place before the amendment in 2013".

Dutta claimed that a subsequent complaint she registered with the Cine And TV Artistes' Association was closed without proper investigation even as she was under "tremendous shock and trauma" and suffered monetary and professional losses. As a retort, Patekar has slapped her with a legal notice, while Tanushree filed a police complaint over the issue on Saturday. "When he was touching me indecently and unnecessary I felt very uncomfortable because of his behaviour, I felt he has outraged my modesty", the letter read. She claimed that the men violently attacked her vehicle "as they were very angry at me for refusing to do a dance step with Patekar and complaining about his behavior". But to her surprise, new steps were introduced by Acharya, which were intimate and included Patekar touching her inappropriately, she alleged. She said she was forced into silence a decade ago. An FIR will then be submitted after the details of her statement are considered. However, Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri, who has also been accused of harassment by her, have filed defamation cases against Dutta.
