"There is no scope for a better work environment if A-listers do not boycott actors like Nana Patekar", she added. He told a leading daily that Tanushree is "probably creating a controversy because she may want to make a comeback" and that she should "move ahead". "This I hope encourages people", Dutta said.
During the same time, in an interview to Zee News, the film's producer Sami Siddiqui had said, "She behaved in a completely unacceptable manner".
While talking to News18, Ganesh Acharya remembered bits of the incident, which had taken place on the sets of movie Horn "Ok" Pleassss, and he refuted the claims Tanushree had made during her interview with Zoom TV that she was harassed by Nana Patekar. According to Tanushree who spoke to Zoom in a Hindi-English interview, Nana Patekar was acting smart with her since day one of the film's shoot, and then during a song sequence he wanted to do an intimate step with her. Many Bollywood actresses have spoken up and shared their stories. She added that the producer and director were complicit in her harassment and did not heed her complaints about Nana Patekar. Tanushree Dutta further alleged that while everyone is aware of Nana Patekar's behaviour with women on set, there is no one to report on it or take action.

In his initial statement Friday afternoon, Rosenstein pushed back on the New York Times report but did not flatly deny it. The Times story contained a suggestion Rosenstein had been speaking sarcastically when he suggested wearing a wire.
"These film actors in our country know the technology of how to package and present themselves so they come across as saintly and people don't know what is happening behind their back". Many big stars like Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor continue to work with Ganesh and Nana. Tanushree also points out, "People ask me why the #MeToo movement is not happening in India". Now we have Nana Patekar's reaction on the same. And now, the actress has come out to claim that Nana Patekar had tried misbehaving with her during the dance and had tried to grab her and push her. They will give some money to some poor farmers. For 10 years I have been shamed and the narrative has been spun like "Oh there is a respectable actor and there is this slutty heroine who put these allegations on him and because she did this horrendous thing she was kicked out of the industry". In the film industry, everybody knows that he is rude to women and has also beaten them on the sets.
Sarang also went to add that Tanushree had approached CINTAA in 2008 regarding the matter and her concerns were heard and resolved.
