Mumbai police has lodged an FIR against actor Nana Patekar and three others on the basis of actor Tanushree Dutta's complaint of sexual harassment on the sets of a 2008 film and begun investigations, her lawyer said on Thursday. They are accused of sexual assault and outraging the modesty of a woman.

Tanushree has accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of Horn "Ok" Pleassss in 2008.

Her Bollywood career did not last very long but she got famous with her bold character in Aashiq Banaya Aapne where she was starred opposite Emraan Hashmi.

Tanushree stated that Daisy had seen Nana try to touch her during her rehearsals and that she immediately went to the Ganesh to complaint.

The incident has been reported to the aviation regulator and Air India says it is "cooperating with the investigation". The pilots, were reportedly unaware of the damage and reported that all systems were functioning normally.

Dutta claimed that on March 26, 2008, Patekar "against my will and consent started grabbing me by the arms and pushing me around on the pretext of teaching me how to dance even though he is not the choreographer". 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. Therefore, she left the police station without recording a statement. She claimed that the men violently attacked her vehicle "as they were very angry at me for refusing to do a dance step with Patekar and complaining about his behavior". Since Tanushree added Daisy in the witness list, Mumbai Police will now be questioning Daisy about the incident and what she saw.

"After the incident, I was in tremendous shock, I suffered psychological trauma, was unable to take up work, suffered huge monetary losses running in crores and therefore I chose to take action through the film industry by lodging a written complaint with the Cine and TV Artistes Association". Everyone was taking Patekar's side, she said.

"'She must have been on her periods'".

Earlier in the evening, the actor had reached the Oshiwara Police Station to record her statement regarding the case, another official said. 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 auto and riot.
