Our witnesses have been silenced by intimidation and fake witnesses have been put forth to weaken the case,” Tanushree Dutta said in a statement.

As the case has been closed by the police, due to lack of evidence. This marks the first official #MeToo case that has reportedly collapsed.

Nana Patekar will next be seen in Bollywood film “Tadka,” where he plays the lead.
