Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan on Thursday refused to comment avoided on fellow actor Nana Patekar harassment claims.
Speaking at the trailer launch of his new movie Thugs of Hindostan, Bachan said, “Neither am I Tanushree, nor am I Nana Patekar, so how can I comment on this?”
Bachan’s co-star Aamir Khan, on the other hand, said, “Without knowing anything I cannot comment on this. But if something has happened, it is always sad and people should investigate.”
A day earlier, Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has alleged veteran actor Patekar had sexually harassed her.
During an interview, Tanushree said, Nana’s reputation of sexual misconduct is well known in the Hindi film industry, but little has been done about it.
“Everyone knows about Nana that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know about his background… that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them, his behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it,” she said during an interview with Zoom.-Web Desk
