Asian Age reports Dutta will be making a fresh statement to the police over her allegations of misbehaviour from Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and producer Sameer Siddiqui, during a films shooting in 2008. An FIR will then be submitted after the details of her statement are considered.
Also involved in the case is the Women’s Commission who have issued noticed to Patekar, Archarya and Siddiqui after Dutta’s filed her complaint to them. The commissioner has also requested reports of their probe of the three men from the Oshiwara police.
