Actress Tanushree Dutta had made serious allegations of harassment against Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya. Dutta had alleged that Nana had misbehaved with her. She also said that choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang and producer Samee Siddique had not taken a stand against the actor for her on the sets of Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss’. She had further added that when she refused to do the dance number, Nana had called members of a political party on the set to intimidate her.
Finally, Ganesh has reacted to the allegations and in an interview with News 18 said, “First of all, it’s a very old incident so I can’t really recall everything very clearly. But it was a duet song as far as I remember. Something did happen that day because the shooting was also stalled for over three hours. There was some sort of misunderstanding. But I can confirm that nothing this sort of happened. It’s a wrong statement that Nana ji called members of some political party on set. It never happened.”

Tanushree claimed that it was due to her that Ganesh was enrolled as a choreographer for the song in the movie. Ganesh, refuting that claim, added that the producer of the movie is an old friend (so is the director). He said that he got the film due to his friendship and not on Dutta’s recommendation.
He also refuted Tanushree‘s claim that the song was a solo dance number and Nana was never a part of it. He also added that there was no indecent step involved in the dance number. Praising Nana, the choreographer added that the actor is a sweet and helpful person and can never behave as Tanushree claims.
