The year 2018 was full of controversies and it will always be highlighted for the MeToo movement which brought out some of the most shocking events from the B-town's past. Many renowned celebrities were accused of sexual assault.
And we all know it began from the Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar controversy. But now the veteran actor has got a clean chit from the police as no eyewitness has confirmed the incident.
It has been reported that police have till date recorded statements from around 15 people, but none of them could confirm the allegations to be true. As reported, the witnesses either failed to recall the decade-old incident or the statements given do not match with Tanushree's allegations.
One of the witnesses is actress Daisy Shah, who was assistant to choreographer Ganesh Acharya on the sets of the said film. Even her statement did not match with Tanushree's version of the story.
Reacting to this, Tanushree claimed that the witnesses are mostly Nana's friends, and hence, there is very little possibility that they would speak against him.
"Who are these 15 witnesses? Are they from my side or Nana's side? They are Nana's friends, then why will they corroborate my story. I don't need witnesses to prove that I was harassed. The truth is sometimes difficult to prove in a court of law when it comes to harassment. The cops have been so slow with the probe. Most of the people from whom they are taking statements are the ones who watched me getting harassed and did nothing to support me. So why will they now speak in my support? The mentality of people is such that they will lie to protect such criminals and prove the woman wrong," she told Mid-Day.
