'Vivek Agnihotri confessed, so we'll file FIR against him'

Actor Tanushree Dutta, who got the ball rolling for #MeToo in Bollywood, is now all set to lodge an FIR against director Vivek Agnihotri. This comes nearly a fortnight after he slapped her with a notice for making a veiled reference to him, accusing him of 'sexually harassing' her while shooting the film Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets, in 2005. Advocate Nitin Satpute, Dutta's counsel, told mid-day, "My client had not named Agnihotri during a press interview. But, Agnihotri has sent her a 10-page notice confessing that 'the director was none other than me'. He has confessed to his own crime. So, this week, we will submit a complaint against him at the Oshiwara police station and will request cops to register a molestation case against him."

Lawyer guns for Rakhi too
Dutta is credited with firing up the #MeToo movement after speaking out against alleged sexual misconduct by Nana Patekar and three others while filming Horn 'Ok' Pleassss last month, and registering an FIR against him recently at Oshiwara police station. After the case was filed against Patekar, Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant abused Dutta and threatened to thrash her at her house.

Rakhi had said, "Tanushree tu yedi hai... Tu ne Bollywood ka naam ganda kiya hain... Tujhe Nana Patekar aur Ganesh Acharya reply nahi karenge kyunki woh shareef hain.... main ek chamaat marungi, tab pata chalega Rakhi kaun hain... Tujhse main niptungi... Ghar me ghus kar marungi." It was Sawant who had replaced Dutta on the set of Horn Ok Pleassss after the controversy erupted.
