Last year, actress Tanushree Dutta filed an FIR against noted actor Nana Patekar for sexual misconduct on the set of a song shoot. Patekar was her co-star in Horn-OkPlease in 2008. The case is officially closed by the Police in Mumbai because of the absence of evidences.
Tanushree Dutta’s accusation for Bollywood actor Nana Patekar came as a shock for everyone, and also marked the begining of #MeToo movement, where numerous women came out about incidents where they faced harassment. While some of the cases are still pending, today the verdict on Tanushree – Nana Patekar case has come out and it states that no evidence has been found against the actor that proves the allegations.

Any evidence could only be found when there is an act committed : AS SIMPLE AS THAT !

MeToo from day1 has been a slanderous campaign with very few genuine cases.

There are few who still root for Dutta.
@MumbaiPolice is known friend of filmi NAAMDARS & good at giving good character certificates to Salman, Nana etc. A 5th grade student can do a better job than Mumbai Police #NanaPatekar #mumbai #TanushreeDutta

What do you think with the trail of events that are associated with the case? Could it really have been a publicity stunt? Or could it be that it wasn’t looked into hard enough at all? Or was it all just a big misunderstanding from both ends? Let us know.
