Tanushree Dutta left everyone shell-shocked when she alleged that her 'Horn Ok Please' co-star Nana Patekar sexually harassed her on the film's set. What followed next was a #MeToo movement which shook not just the film industry but the entire country. Following Tanushree's allegations, Nana slapped a legal notice on her. In turn, she filed a police complaint against Nana and others who she alleged were complicit in the action.
Recently, she even recorded her statement with the police where she narrated her entire ordeal again. Now, MNS party chief Raj Thackeray has come out in support of Patekar. While speaking at a recent event, he admitted that while Nana was indecent, he doesn't think he can harass anyone.
Claiming that he knows Nana Patekar as someone who does "crazy things", he said that Nana can't do such a thing even know he is known to be "indecent". Raj further said that the court will look into the matter and the people must not arrive at a judgement on social media.
A Times Now report quoted Raj Thackeray as saying, "I know Nana Patekar; he is indecent. He does crazy things but I don't think he can do such a thing. Court will look into it. What is the media to do with it? #MeToo is a serious matter, the debate over it on Twitter isn't right."
On the other hand, Nana is yet to react to Tanushree's allegations, but he recently said at a media interaction, 'Truth is the same as he had said 10 years back.'
