Tanushree cries harassment, director cries lies

Mar 31, 2008 11:58 PM IST India India

New Delhi: Actress Tanushree Dutta earlier filed a complaint with the Cine and Television Artistes Association for harassment on the sets of film Horn, Ok Please. “We made a mistake by signing Tanushree for the film,” says director, Rakesh Sarang. The film's director is blaming actress Tanushree Dutta for making baseless accusations against the cast and crew of the film. "Initially she said that the junior artists were troubling her. Then she went ahead and said that Ganesh Acahrya’s assistants were troubling her. Now she says that Nana Patekar was trying to touch her,” says Rakesh. Tanushree Dutta however claims that she had to quit the film after she refused to do an intimate scene with co-star Nana Patekar last week. “Before shooting the item number, I had warned the director and the producer that I am not an item girl. I am an actor. I told them to keep this in mind before deciding the clothes and the dance movements in the film. However, they completely ignored what I told them,” says Tanushree. Dutta also alleged that media persons, along with the crew of the film, damaged her car and harassed her after she refused to do the item number. The actress has now reportedly filed a complaint with the Cine and Television Artistes Association (CINTAA), demanding compensation for damage to her car and her reputation. Meanwhile, Rakhi Sawant who replaced Dutta in the song, credits herself with salvaging the film. "I saved a man from going into losses. It is a great deed I did,” says Rakhi. However, Sawant just might get into trouble for replacing Dutta without seeking a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from her, as per the requirements of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees.
