Annu Kapoor placed his views on Tanushree Dutta allegations against Nana Patekar with out taking any one’s side.
He concluded as asserting, “But asking me whether Tanushree Dutta is wrong or Nana Patekar is wrong? Without knowing the truth, I wouldn’t say who is right and who is wrong. Our former colleague Shiney Ahuja, his career was destroyed after the rape case was filed. Because, the woman filed the complaint. When you talk about it 10 years later, it raises several questions. There are people in support of Nana Patekar. I have even worked with him. My first film that I directed and produced – the main hero of that film is Nana Patekar only. But, I can say that during those times, Nana Patekar would charge Rs 65 lakhs as signing amount after reading the film’s subject and script. Nana Patekar had done my film in Rs 21, 000. I am a direct witness of it and I did not see anything like that. The questions are raised. I am not saying that I am not with Tanushree Dutta. I stand with each and every woman who has been disrespected and she has been harassed. It could be Tanushree or Rakhi Sawant, I doesn’t matter.”
