The Gulf Today - - FRONT PAGE -

MUMBAI: De­spite get­ting threats of le­gal no­tice from Nana Patekar for ac­cus­ing him of sex­ual as­sault, ac­tor Tanushree Dutta re­vealed that nei­ther has she got any le­gal no­tice from the ac­tor’s lawyer nor is she afraid of him.

“I am putting to­gether a team of lawyers and ad­vo­cates to de­fend my in­ter­ests. Also con­trary to claims made by Nana’s lawyer, I have not re­ceived any le­gal no­tice. So ‘Bluff­mas­ter’ gogo needs to step up his game a bit here,” THE For­mer Beauty queen SAID In A state­ment.

Ear­lier this week, Tanushree came in front of the me­dia and ac­cused the “Wel­come” ac­tor of ha­rass­ing her on THE sets of THEIR 2008 ilm “Horn Ok Ple­assss”.

In an in­ter­view, she re­counted Nana’s “mis­be­haviour” on the set.

“HE (NANA PATEKAR) CALLED THE MNS (Ma­ha­rash­tra Navnir­man Sena) party to BASH up my CAR. HE was BE­HIND Ev­ery­thing and was sup­ported by Ganesh Acharya (chore­og­ra­pher)...”

Fol­low­ing the al­le­ga­tions, Patekar’s lawyer re­sponded say­ing, he will send a le­gal no­tice to her.

Tanushree said that no one can stop her from speak­ing the truth and the “threat of le­gal no­tice” can’t in­tim­i­date her.

The 34-year-old ac­tor also ex­pressed con­cern over the lawyers who can do any­thing for money.

“Im sure this guy has many skele­tons in his closet too as birds of a FEATHER Al­ways lock to­gether. THIS Is the story of count­less mil­lions in our coun­try who are still wait­ing for jus­tice be­cause they got dragged into a web of le­gal mumbo jumbo and were si­lenced into sub­mis­sion.”

The Good Boy, Bad Boy star also urged the In­dian ju­di­cial sys­tem to take Nana and his lawyer into cus­tody AND ques­tion them. MEAN­WHILE, vet­eran singer Asha Bhosle says that she is glad to see that women are com­ing out in open to talk about their is­sues and ight AGAINST IN­JUS­TICE.

Asha Bhosle was in­ter­act­ing with me­dia at the launch of new iphone XS and iphone XS max along with Mad­huri Dixit Nene on Fri­day in Mumbai.

When asked about her take on cur­rent sce­nario where women are stand­ing up against in­jus­tice to­wards them in the so­ci­ety, she said, “It’s a pos­i­tive step and women should ex­press their Is­sues AND should ight For THEIR JUS­TICE oth­er­wise peo­ple who are ex­ploit­ing women will get an en­cour­age­ment so it’s re­ally good that women are com­ing out in the open to talk about is­sues.”
