I am neither Tanushree nor Nana: Big B on Tanushree's harassment claims


ANI Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has refused to comment on actor Tanushree Dutta's recent allegations against Nana Patekar, saying that he is neither Tanushree nor Patekar.
"Neither am I Tanushree, nor am I Nana Patekar, so how can I comment on this?" said the 'Sholay' star during a press conference.
While Bachchan steered away from the topic, his 'Thugs of Hindostan' co-star Amir Khan gave in a little and said, "Without knowing anything I cannot comment on this. But if something has happened, it is always sad and it is for people to investigate."
Dutta on Thursday alleged that Bollywood veteran Nana Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of the film Horn 'Ok' Pleassss in the year 2008.
"He was being aggressive and was pushing me around. I complained about him, but it was not heard. They (film crew) were forcing me to do an intimate step. My contract stated that it was a solo dance sequence, and it was not supposed to be a duet. It was a way to manipulate me. This was the whole harassment situation going on," Dutta said.
The 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne' actor further alleged that she and her family were attacked after she refused to perform the intimate step.
She also asserted that before she and her family could reach out to the police to file a case, the film crew had filed a counter FIR.
