Tanushree Dutta was the force behind the start of #MeTooIndia. She narrated how veteran actor Nana Patekar harassed her on the sets of their movie Horn Ok Pleasss. Tanushree revealed that she had filed an FIR over a decade back too. She however was heard this time and the former actress went to the cops for help once again.

It appeared that Tanushree Dutta came with a new force and was determined to win the #MeToo case against Nana Patekar. After claiming that she is neither shocked nor surprised about Nana receiving the clean chit, Tanushree expressed her disappoitnment on the incident during an interview with Times of India.

“At about 5 am, I got a call from a friend who told me about it. This is disgusting, because Nana Patekar has been trying to get a clean chit for a while now. I have also mentioned this earlier in an interview that our witnesses have been getting threat calls, and they are being intimidated and pressured in every way so that they do not record their statements with the police. We have 10 witnesses. Only one-and-a-half statements have been recorded. The others have not even come forward, as they have got threat calls. Cops say that there is lack of evidence. How will credible evidence be produced, if the accused is making sure that no evidence against him reaches the police? The witnesses that the police have recorded the statements (in his favour) from, are his friends. From the unit present during the time of the shoot back then, no one was really my friend. Also, the witnesses did not say nothing happened, they said, they don’t remember anything,” she told the daily over a phone call.

Tanushree added, “Disappointment happens when you are shocked about something. I didn’t have much expectation from the harassment case. I also think Nana Patekar is desperately trying to come back to Bollywood and now, he wants his name to be cleared somehow. My only hope of judgment now is from God. I will continue this fight.”

In a press statement, Tanushree, while speaking about Nana Patekar receiving clean chit, had said, "A corrupt police force and legal system giving a clean chit to an even more corrupt person Nana who has been accused even in the past of bullying, intimidation and harassment by several women in the film industry. Our witnesses have been silenced by intimidation and fake witnesses have been put forth to weaken the case. What was the rush to file a B summary report when all of my witnesses have not even recorded their statements yet?? I'm neither shocked nor surprised being a woman in India this is something we all have got used to.I mean if rape accused Alok Nath got a clean chit and returned to movies then surely it was not going to be difficult for harrassment accused Nana Patekar to get himself or shall we say buy himself a clean chit to continue to bully hapless young women.But the proof is often in the pudding and a gentle reminder to the Indian public to watch the video of my car being mercilessly attacked and broken while me and my family tried to escape from these monsters on Horn Ok Pleasss sets 10 years ago. After this if you still decide to watch their movies and support then it's your bad karma. You are a corrupt people with no justice, but God's justice will rain on you someday hopefully and will avenge for all the humiliation, insult, harrassment, judgement and trauma I have had to endure in the last 10+ years because of this attitude.That is my hope finally for a life without hope is like a candle without fire. I pray that I never have to deal with this kind of toxicity ever again in life. I'm tired of fighting alone against oppressors, bullies and a corrupt system. I have better things to do in life with my talent and skillset and I need to focus on those but please don't take this example to mean that you will not be heard when you speak up!! Continue to expose these creeps through social media and other platforms so that in future people would think twice before troubling an innocent young girl. I still believe by the way that I will get justice and victory will be mine!! How..only time will tell."
