Actress Tanushree Dutta has created a havoc in Bollywood by accusing actor Nana Patekar of harassing her. This also restarted the #MeToo movement in Bollywood, the one that was much discussed since 2017. The country is divided into two parts over the incident. Where on one hand, there are actresses like Esha Gupta, Sonam Kapoor, and Priyanka Chopra have come out in support of Tanushree Dutta, there are people who believe that the incident is just a made up story by Tanushree, to be in limelight again. And now, joining the league of actresses who have openly talked about the issue is Dimple Kapadia.
Previously, Kapadia and Nana Patekar have worked together in a few films including ‘Krantiveer’, ‘Angaar’, and ‘Ankush’. Previously, Kapadia has talked about Nana Patekar’s behaviour and his other side too. In an interview given many years ago, Dimple Kapadia mentioned about the dark side of Nana Patekar.
As per the video, while discussing it with film critic Anupama Chopra, Dimple spilled the beans and talked candidly about everything she knows of him. When questioned, if Nana has mellowed down, she said:
“I think he is obnoxious. In a good and a bad way.”
Dimple Kapadia later hesitates and talks well of him:
“As far as his talent goes, there’s no match to him. He is an extremely talented man. When I see talent like him, sau khoon bhi maaf hai. Sab kuchmaaf hai. Meri jaan bhi lelo. That’s the effect he has on me.”
Kapadia further added:
“But, as a person, with me he has been very, very nice, kind and a good friend. But I have also seen his terrible side… the dark side. We all have a dark side which is nicely and safely kept aside.”
