The letter described the incident which had taken place in Filmistan Studios (on sets of the film Horn 'OK' Pleassss), along with a complaint.

Chauhan said that Dutta wanted a message to be conveyed to CINTAA regarding the matter. On reading the letter, the committee came to a conclusion that the goings-on had the nature of a criminal case. Following this, Chauhan and his committee advised the person to ask Tanushree to go to the police and file an FIR.

Chauhan further added that if Dutta felt that CINTAA was a "bogus association" then she should resign her primary membership from the association. Defending the body, Chauhan added that CINTAA was made up of esteemed film personalities like Amitabh Bachchan.

Tanushree Dutta has alleged that Nana Patekar, on the sets of Horn 'OK' Pleassss, had behaved inappropriately and aggressively with her.
