Daisy Shah summoned by Mumbai Police to record statement in sexual harassment case involving Nana Patekar

Daisy Shah has been summoned by the Oshiwara police to record her statement in the sexual harassment case involving Nana Patekar and Tanushree Dutta.
Shah was the assistant choreographer on Horn Ok Please, the film on the sets of which the alleged incident took place in 2008. She had earlier told the media that although she does not know what transpired between Dutta and Patekar on the set that day, she stands by her.
A senior police officer confirmed the development and told Mid-Day, "We will record statements of everyone present on the sets when the alleged incident took place." Shah, who was last seen in Salman Khan-starrer Race 3, has been asked to submit her statement within a week or two, according to the same report.
Dutta filed an FIR in October against Patekar for touching her inappropriately on the sets of the film, during a dance sequence that he was allegedly never meant to be a part of. Choreographer Ganesh Acharya, filmmaker Rakesh Sarang and producer Samee Siddiqui have also been named in the FIR for being complicit and not taking appropriate action. The accused have been booked under under Sections 354 and 509 (outraging a women's modesty) of the Indian Penal Code.
Bhediya is presented by Jio Studios and Vijan's Maddock Films.
Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Bhediya will release in cinemas in April 2022
