Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan Thursday evaded a direct answer when asked about actor Tanushree Dutta's claim that Nana Patekar harassed her on the sets of a film in 2008, an allegation that is being seen as Bollywood's #MeToo moment. I complained about him, but it was not heard. He also demanded to do an intimate step with me even though it was my solo dance. She says that she had been to the sets as a reporter on behalf of Aaj Tak to collect some behind the scenes stories and had encountered a visibly upset Tanushree, tensed choreographer and director in a heated up talk and halted shooting. NDTV delivers reliable information across all platforms: TV, Internet and Mobile. The actress started off the interaction by saying that she has spoken about whatever had happened a decade back, and she has already recapped the sequence of events even in recent interviews. He also added that he doesn't remember what happened that day as the incident is from 10 years ago. The latter has not clarified on the actress' claims, but choreographer Ganesh Acharya has come to his defence. "He is very helpful and he has actually helped a lot of artistes in the industry, he can never do anything like that". She alleged him of being abusive and rude to women, adding to the statement, she said that he has always been disrespectful towards female actors. But that particular song didn't involve any kind of indecent step in the first place.

"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". I want the industry to ban these people from working just to set an example for others.

In 2009, when Tanushree alleged this, Nana Patekar had held a press conference at the behest of the director and producer and refuted the allegations.
