Tanushree had filed a complaint against actor Nana Patekar a decade ago after she felt uncomfortable shooting a song with Patekar for the film Horn Ok Pleassss. CINTAA had earlier said it did not "address" the allegations by Dutta when she approached them in 2008 but recently in a written statement the body stated that it was ready to readdress Tanushree Dutta's sexual harassment allegation against Nana Patekar "by conducting a fair and expeditious" inquiry.
The association also sent a notice to rape-accused Alok Nath, who later denied all accusations in a statement.
CINTAA and other regulating bodies of the entertainment industry have been forced to establish a stronger redressal system ever since multiple prominent personalities from film and television were named as sexual predators by survivors, some of whom chose to remain anonymous.
