HeForShe movement was based on the hope that both men and women should work for gender equality

"We are investigating the case and enquiries are on with this regard", he said. The FIR has also been filed against director Rakesh Sarang, producer Sami Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

She said that she was sexually harassed by the actor during the shooting of a dance sequence for film Horn Ok Pleasss at the Filmistan Studio here. She claimed that after complaining to the producer, director and choreographer, they changed the choreography of the song to include Patekar in it without her knowledge and consent. Tanushree recorded her statement with the Police against the actor yesterday.

"I felt very uncomfortable because of his behavior mentioned above and he has outraged my modesty I felt embarrassed like this his behavior was inappropriate towards me".

The actor filed an FIR in the year 2008 when it all happened but no action was taken against it. But to her surprise, new steps were introduced by Acharya, which were intimate and included Patekar touching her inappropriately, she alleged.

She then called her parents and manager, who questioned Patekar's actions.

She says that some political party workers started assaulting and damaging her auto while she and her family were trying to leave the venue. Tanushree said she was disappointed by his response. Soon after the registration of FIR many women came out in support of Tanushree Dutta outside Oshiwara Police Station and demanded arrest of Nana Patekar. Her lawyer stated that many parts of the complaint were not mentioned and the FIR was filed only for the offence of causing damage to her vehicle and riot.

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

The Bengali beauty has stayed out of the silver screen for a long time now but appeared on the headlines all of a sudden when she revealed the dark side of Nana Patekar in a recent interview.

The MSCW will also be writing to production houses in Mumbai to ensure compliance with the requirement by law of setting up of internal complaints committee to deal with issues of sexual harassment.

After recording the statement, the police registered the offence late midnight, he said.
