The #MeToo movement in the country is growing with each passing day as many prominent names have come forward as sexual predators. It all started after actor Tanushree Dutta spoke about the sexual harassment she faced on the sets of her film Horn Ok Please back by Nana Patekar in 2008. The movement, since then, has gotten bigger and has reached a point that Nana Patekar had to walk out of a project midway.
Nana Patekar recently announced that he would like to walk out of the project in the wake of his name being dragged into the #MeToo controversy. Patekar claims that he wouldn’t want the film to suffer. Now the big question for the makers is who will be Nana’s replacement in the movie.
