Besides Nana Patekar, the FIR has also been lodged against director Rakesh Sarang, producer Sami Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Amitabh Bachchan had drawn much flak from fans when he refused to comment on Tanushree Dutta's allegations of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar. The four persons have been booked under section 354 (molestation) and 509 (Word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code late on Wednesday night. Tanushree recorded her statement with the Police against the actor yesterday.

She further said before shooting the song on the sets of the film Horn Ok Pleasss, which was supposed to be a solo song picturised only on her, she had clearly mentioned that she will not enact or perform any lewd, vulgar or uncomfortable steps.

Dutta had sought the Commission's intervention after claiming that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her on the sets of a film in 2008. She claimed that after complaining to the producer, director and choreographer, they changed the choreography of the song to include Patekar in it without her knowledge and consent. She called her parents and wanted to go home. Therefore, she left the police station without recording a statement. This is not the first time an FIR has been filed for the case; in 2008, Tanushree's father Tapan Dutta had filed a case after her vehicle was attacked while leaving the sets of Horn Ok Please, however, there was no outcome for the case.

"The complainant has stated that more than 100 people were present on the set at the time when the offence took place".

She also lodged a complaint with the Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) in March 2008.

Though it is not clear to whom this interview was given he has now spoken against sexual harassment.

After the incident, says Tanushree, she was under tremendous shock and suffered psychological trauma, "unable to take up work and suffered huge monetary loss in crores of rupees". "As part of the probe, we will record statements of all witnesses related to the case before summoning the accused", he said.
