While Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar and others have indeed raised a new wave of the Me Too movement, the battle for Tanushree isn’t just yet over. It was earlier on Wednesday when Tanushree’s lawyer had submitted a 40 page document to the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai as well as State Women’s support commission so as to support her allegations. An FIR has now been filed against Nana Patekar, Horn ‘OK’ Pleassss director Rakesh Sarang, producer Samee Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya.

Under sections 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code, Rakesh Sarang, Ganesh Acharya and Samee Siddiqui will now be summoned by the police, and their statements will then be recorded. While at the station, Tanushree’s lawyer Nitin Satpute was quoted as saying, “The statement of Tanushree Dutta has been recorded in English so that she can understand the language. They were writing the statement in Marathi. However, we requested them to write it in English so that what happened 10 years ago would not happen again.”

Post Tanushree’s allegations against Nana Patekar and others, Patekar had slapped Tanushree with a legal notice, and also asked from her a written apology.

Over the last few days, the likes of Alok Nath, Kailash Kher, Vikas Bahl, Rajat Kapoor and others have been accused of sexual misconduct. It was only yesterday, that the news about director Sajid Khan having sexually harassed his former assistant, Saloni Chopra come afore. In the wake of the movement, rigourous action is being taken and in order to take a step towards the same Aamir khan walked out of Mogul and many organizations too, have taken strict actions on similar such issues.

With new developments every day, we can only wait to see what more still awaits.

In India the movement shd be bigger than me too
We can call it - No means No. Unconsented behaviour by men/women is wrong.

May truth and justice prevail. Stay strong Tanushree!
