Annu Kapoor believes Tanushree Dutta, who has accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on a film’s set in 2008, should approach the police instead of talking to the media.
“The dignity and pride of a woman has been hurt. But if this is true then the person should be punished, be it Nana Patekar or Annu Kapoor.
“You bring the proof and then the culprit should be punished. But if without any proof you are just levelling allegations.. So many questions have been raised today and you have to answer those questions. Why this media trial? Why you are not going to the police station? This only makes me doubt your intentions,” Kapoor told reporters here at an event Zee5’s docu-drama “Khaar” on Thursday.
Dutta has accused Patekar of misbehaviour on the sets of a 2008 movie. He has denied the allegations and has slapped her with a notice. Also, Tanushree has accused Hate Story filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri of misbehaving with her on a film set. She alleged that the director asked her to remove her clothes in the presence of two male actors including Irrfan Khan.
On Wednesday, Tanushree Dutta, in a statement said that she has received legal notices from filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri and Nana Patekar.
