Indian right wing group Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has warned the makers of Big Boss that they will have to face ‘violent behaviour’ if they invite Tanushree Dutta to the reality show.
The threats came after Ms Dutta accused actor Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her during a film shoot in 2008.
Nana Patekar denied her accusations and his lawyer said Ms Dutta will face legal action for leveling false accusations against his client.
In an interview with Navbharat Times, Ms Dutta alleged that Raj Thackeray’s party threatened her at the behest of Mr Patekar.
“Amidst all this, the Mumbai police has reached out and offered their support,” she said. “They have promised me 24-hour police protection and have posted their armed personnel around my home.”
“Raj Thackeray is a goon and has got several like him in his party,” Dutta told Indian Express, saying that a person who attacks women can’t be a leader.
“The criminal minded leader wanted to replace Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray and he resorts to violence every now and then since he couldn’t get the position.”
