The Maharashtra State Commission for Women on Tuesday issued a notice to actor Nana Patekar, asking him to respond to actress Tanushree Dutta's allegations of sexual harassment against him, reported ANI.
CINTAA has also asked Nana Patekar to share his side of the story before the body issues any more statements.
Tanushree Dutta paved the way for #MeToo movement, by accusing Nana Patekar for sexually harassing and intimidating on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008.
Dutta said she had also received "violent threats" from the fringe, far-right nationalist group Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and has been hounded by a "smear campaign" on social media since reiterating her claims against the pair.
"When he was touching me indecently and unnecessary I felt very uncomfortable because of his behaviour, I felt he has outraged my modesty", the letter read.
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has filed a complaint with the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai Police, saying that a video is being circulated in which his statements are being made to look like he is commenting on the ongoing Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar row.

"This is the age-old saga of survivors in our nation", she said. However, the producer refused to budge and Dutta had no choice but to leave the studio, the complaint said. "I am claustrophobic anyway, I need to move around", she added.
We were then taken to the police station and my statement was recorded but not as per the complaint.
She has been offered to be part of the controversial reality show in the past too.
