After Bollywood director sajid khan’s step down from controversy-marred film ‘Housefull 4’, following sexual harassment allegations, now, veteran actor Nana Patekar has replaced by south-Indian film star Rana Dagubatti in Patekar’s role.
This is for the first time that Baahubali fame Rana will appear in a comedy franchise.
Talking about his expectations from the film, the actor said, “It is always good to find work outside of Hyderabad, get to learn so much and do so many new things. I’ve never been part of a genre like Housefull and it’s always exciting to work with different genres. Working with Akshay Kumar again (after Neeraj Pandey’s 2015 action-spy thriller Baby), Sajid (Nadiadwala) and Farhad (Samji) is something I am really looking forward to,” he told an Indian publication.
Tanusharee Dutta has alleged that she was sexually harassed by the Nana Patekar during the shooting of a dance sequence for film “Horn Ok Pleasss” at the Filmistan Studio here. She said she was forced into silence a decade ago.
Former Miss India and Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta alleged that the veteran actor Nana Patekar, has been quite disrespectful towards women on the sets of films. “Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them. His behaviour with women has always been rude but no publication has printed anything about it,” she said.
Tanusharee Dutta’s allegations triggered a storm in bollywood and #MeToo movement is on the rise these days.
