Actor Shakti Kapoor on Tuesday mocked Tanushree Dutta’s allegations of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar. At a press conference, Shakti was asked for a reaction to the ongoing controversy in which Tanushree Dutta has accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her while shooting for a song in 2008. After hearing out the question, Shakti Kapoor is heard saying, “I don’t know anything about this. It happened 10 years ago, I was a small kid back then,” following which he is seen smirking and the crowd at the press conference laughing.


If the silence of Bollywood’s big guns around Tanushree’s allegations wasn’t shocking enough, the mocking of a sexual harassment charge by members of the film industry almost seems unbelievable.
