Ram Gopal Varma Tanushree Nana controvery

After Tanushree Dutta opened up on the sexual harassment she faced due to Nana Patekar, the entire film industry is now witnessing the rise of #MeToo movement. While several actors have supported Tanushree in her fight for justice, there are few who have lend their support to Nana.


The latest filmmaker to support Nana is none other than Ram Gopal Varma. The director released a video in which he can be heard sharing his views on the ongoing Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar controversy.

In the video, he can be heard saying, “I have no reasons to disbelief Tanushree Dutta, when she says something like he touched him inappropriately and whatever the way she felt…but I would like to believe, Nana Patekar that I know will never do it deliberately. He will never do it wantingly…to actually hurt somebody else. And I believe that I know him that well…”

You can check out the video below:

Varma agreed that Nana might be hot-tempered and hard headed but he refused to believe that the veteran actor would ever do anything of such sorts as alleged by Tanushree.

Nana has sent a legal notice to Tanushree, whereas she has also filed a complaint against him.
