HeForShe movement was based on the hope that both men and women should work for gender equality

She said that she was sexually harassed by the actor during the shooting of a dance sequence for film "Horn Ok Pleasss" at the Filmistan Studio here.

The report also said that on the evening of 10 October, Dutta had approached the police station to give a statement for the second time after which the police registered the formal complaint.

According to the ANI news agency, FIR has also been lodged against director Rakesh Sarang, producer Samee Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

"We have registered a case against Patekar and others under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC", additional commissioner of police (west region) Manojkumar Sharma told PTI.

Nana Patekar allegedly told the choreographer and other artists to back away so he could teach her steps.

Dutta added that she felt "uncomfortable and embarrassed" as a result of his "inappropriate behaviour" and that he had "outraged her modesty".

When Dutta refused to perform the new "intimate steps" with Patekar and retreated to her vanity van, she claimed that Siddiqui threatened to "defame me in the film industry and boycott me".

The MSCW will also be writing to production houses in Mumbai to ensure compliance with the requirement by law of setting up of internal complaints committee to deal with issues of sexual harassment. "But when it comes to standing up and doing something about what is happening in front of you, there are these evasive statements that don't make sense", she had said.

The actor said she was being forced and pressurised to do the steps but after she refused, the producer threatened to defame her.

Mr. Raj questioned the relevance of making sexual harassment allegations against anybody after 10 years.

Tanushree's lawyer Nitin Satpute revealing details of the statement, in an interview, said that the complaint has been recorded in English rather than Marathi so that the information does not get distorted like it had happened the first time. Recently, Dutta received an apology from CINTAA for not taking timely action after she filed a complaint.
