Meanwhile, in 2008, actress Tanushree Dutta accused Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the movie Horn 'Ok' Pleassss. Later in 2018, Dutta restated her accusation against Nana Patekar that led to the Me Too movement coming to Bollywood. An FIR was then registered against Patekar at the Oshiwara Police station. Eventually, in June 2019, Patekar was cleared of the sexual harassment charges by the police. On the other hand, speaking with ETimes, Payal Ghosh mentioned that she has no proof against Anurag Kashyap.
