Tanushree Dutta recently spoke out about her ongoing conflict with Nana Patekar, recalling the controversial incident from 2008. During a press conference organized by Adil Durani, the actress expressed her complaints about Rakhi Sawant and criticized Nana Patekar, suggesting that he uses her name to promote his movies and pointing out his diminishing significance in the entertainment industry.
Tanushree Dutta didn’t hold back and criticized the makers of Nana Patekar’s upcoming film, “The Vaccine War.” She asserted, “Nana Patekar had no standing before and still lacks it today. He has become insignificant, and that’s why they want me to speak against him and grab headlines.” She went on to slam the film, stating, “These individuals hit rock bottom long ago, which is why they’ve produced this minuscule film. Now they require my name to promote their movie.”
