BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Dhol actor Tanushree Dutta has been restrained from bashing Nana Patekar’s NGO Naam Foundation on Bombay High Court’s orders. Tanushree had spoken out against the NGO recently. In response, the organisation filed a Rs. 25 crore defamation case against her.
Mumbai Mirror reports that the court order reads: “That pending the hearing and final disposal of the present suit, this Hon’ble court be pleased to restrain the defendant (Tanushree Dutta) from further publishing or using in any way the said defamatory press conference or its contents to the plaintiff’s reputation with respect to siphoning of funds, bribery, subverting police and judicial system, collecting funds on false pretext, improper maintaining of the plaintiff’s (Naam Foundation’s) accounts.”
Tanushree had also lent her voice to the global #MeTooMovement when she opened up about being sexually harassed by Patekar during the making of the film Horn OK Please. But the complaint was termed false Mumbai police and Patekar was cleared of charges.
“The suit is a clear indication of how far Nana Patekar can go to trouble and silence me whenever I point out corruption. My challenges in life made me an activist and I have decide to never back down,” she told the tabloid.
