Actor Tanushree Dutta has again named veteran actor Nana Patekar for allegedly sexually harassing her on the sets of the film Horn 'Ok' Pleassss in 2008.

Tanushree accused Nana Patekar of wanting to touch her inappropriately and having insisted on shooting an intimate song sequence in the film, even though it was not mentioned in her contract.

Now journalist Janice Sequeira has taken to social media to share an eyewitness account of the incident - she happened to be on the sets that day covering the shoot on behalf of Aaj Tak and Headlines Today. Her account resonates closely with that of Tanushree’s allegations on her interview with Zoom TV.


Editor-screenwriter Apurva Asrani too has voiced his support for Tanushree Dutta.


The Quint is trying to reach Nana Patekar for a comment on the harassment allegations made by Tanushree Dutta.
