Tanushree Dutta - Nana Patekar media circus is getting bigger by the day. While Tanushree is standing by her claims that Nana Patekar had harassed her in 2008, Nana Patekar has sent a legal notice to her claiming that she is putting false allegations against him. He is not the only one. Controversial film-maker and Censor Board member Vivek Agnihotri has also sent a legal notice to her for the same charges. Nana Patekar to Answer Sexual Harassment Allegations by Tanushree Dutta in Press Conference on October 8.

Tanushree had accused Vivek Agnihotri of behaving in a derogatory manner during the shoot of the 2005 film, Chocolate. Now, usually vocal on social media, Vivek Agnihotri had been unusually silent about these allegations when they came out. However, some time back, he has issued a press release through his Twitter handle. In the press release, he claims that the allegations of Tanushree Dutta are false and fabricated. He also mentioned that he has issued a defamation suit against her and the media agencies who had covered the news without proper investigation. Nana Patekar and Vivek Agnihotri Send Legal Notice to Tanushree Dutta Against the Sexual Harassment Allegations.
