In the recent past, Aditya Pancholi was accused in a rape case by an actress. After the complaint was registered against him, the arrest was supposed to be made soon. But Pancholi had already applied for an anticipatory bail in the case. Now, the latest update on the case is that Aditya has been granted interim relief by the Mumbai court and that the case hearing has been adjourned until mid-July.

Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar tried to harass her on the sets of the film Horn Ok Please back in 2008. Dutta had filed a complaint at the time but no action was taken back then. It was after Dutta recounted the allegations again recently that many women came forward with their #MeToo stories. Talking about the matter, Nana Patekar said, “What should I say? I said 10 years ago. The truth which was 10 years ago remains the same today and will continue to be tomorrow as well.”
