Bollywood actress Dimple Kapadia talking about the dark side of Nana Patekar in a throwback interview.
Bollywood stars - from Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra to Twinkle Khanna, Swara Bhasker and Richa Chadha - have come out in support of actor Tanushree Dutta's allegations that Nana Patekar harassed her on the sets of a film.
Tanushree said that Nana had tried to touch her inappropriately while shooting for a song sequence for the movie Horn Ok Pleasssse. Last few days, the actress is hogging the limelight after her shocking revelations that she had been subjected to sexual harassment in the Indian film industry during an interview with Zoom TV.
In an interview, she said that actor Nana Patekar had sexually harassed her on the sets of the film Horn OK Pleasssse in 2008. She also hit out at choreographer Ganesh Acharya for teaming up against her on the sets of the film.
An entertainment journalist, Janice Sequeira, who was present at the shoot on that day has given a detailed account on Twitter, supporting Tanushree's claims and by saying that she witnessed it all.
On the other hand, Nana Patekar has decided to file a case of defamation against the female actor, and popular Bollywood choreographer Ganesh Acharya has denied Tanushree's allegations saying nothing of that sort happened.
Following the actress' allegations, we found an old video of Dimple Kapadia, talking to Anupama Chopra about Nana Patekar and his behaviour on the sets. In the video, Dimple, after the shoot of Tum Milo To Sahi with Nana Patekar as her co-star, reveals her experience of working with Nana.
On being asked about how was it working with him, Dimple says, "He is obnoxious in a good way and a bad way, as far as his talent goes, there's no match to him. And when you have a talent like him toh sab kuch maaf hai, meri jaan bhi le lo. As a person, with me he has been very, very kind and a good friend, but I have also seen his terrible side, his dark side. We all have a dark side, which is nicely and safely kept aside."
Well, many celebs supported Tanushree, but a few big stars like Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan refused to comment on the issue without "knowing the veracity of the situation".
