Tanushree Dutta lodges FIR against Nana Patekar and three others in Mumbai

Director Vikas Bahl has been accused of sexually harassing a woman crew member

The 34-year-old alleges that when she complained to the director, producer and choreographer of the film about Nana Patekar's behavior, they reassured her but later tried to force her to perform an intimate dance step with Nana Patekar. The four persons have been booked under section 354 (molestation) and 509 (Word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code late on Wednesday night. Besides Nana Patekar, the FIR has also been lodged against director Rakesh Sarang, producer Sami Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Dutta added that she felt "uncomfortable and embarrassed" as a result of his "inappropriate behaviour" and that he had "outraged her modesty".

Dutta was to be the only performer in the song, with Patekar delivering one dialogue that was to be initially shot separately, her complaint states. "But when it comes to standing up and doing something about what is happening in front of you, there are these evasive statements that don't make sense", she had said.

Satpute said Tanushree has been provided police security at the residential building where her home is.

Dutta had sought the Commission's intervention after claiming that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her on the sets of a film in 2008. Dutta also added in her complaint that she could not understand the contents of the FIR, as it was written in Marathi.

The ex-actor says she was "getting very disturbed, distracted and uncomfortable". We were then taken to the police station and my statement was recorded but not as per the complaint.

The FIR was registered late on Wednesday, hours after Dutta had arrived in the police station in her vehicle, clad in a burqa to record her statement in regard to the harassment allegations against Bollywood veteran Nana Patekar.

She also lodged a complaint with the Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) in March 2008.

"The complainant has stated that more than 100 people were present on the set at the time when the offence took place".

"Before summoning the accused, we will record the statements of other witnesses in the case on the incident in question", a police officer said.
