[dropcap]A[/dropcap]s a video of Tanushree Dutta’s car being vandalised went viral on Monday, and Dutta is putting together a team of lawyers and advocates to defend herself, Nana Patekar’s lawyer, Rajendra Shirodkar sent a legal notice to the former actress claiming that she has levelled false accusations of sexual harassment against Patekar.
“A legal notice has already been sent to her and she will receive it today. The notice that I have sent is a standard one — denying allegations and asking for an apology,” Shirodkar told Firstpost. He was surprised to know that many people, including a journalist, assistant director Shyni Shetty, and actress Daisy Shah have confirmed that the incident did indeed happen.
She told Bollywood Hungama bits of Dutta’s account of the incident. “(In the midst of the commotion) Tanushree’s car’s wind shield had cracked and she had locked herself in the vanity van for almost 3-4 hours.”
Dutta had told Firstpost in an interview, “They could have made changes, worked around it (the dance step), made me comfortable. I would have finished the song and the song would have got publicity. I would have been the star of the song. They would have got much more out of it. The movie ultimately didn’t release. Our car was damaged so badly. I remember sitting inside and thinking whether we would reach home or a hospital.”
