They are accused of sexual assault and outraging the modesty of a woman.

She said that she was sexually harassed by the actor during the shooting of a dance sequence for film "Horn Ok Pleasss" at the Filmistan Studio here. "He was touching indecently and unnecessarily in front of everybody but nobody objected and all were complicit in this behavior by being silent spectators". She claimed that after complaining to the producer, director and choreographer, they changed the choreography of the song to include Patekar in it without her knowledge and consent.

Patekar has denied he misbehaved with Dutta on the sets of the film, calling her claims a "lie".

The report also said that on the evening of 10 October, Dutta had approached the police station to give a statement for the second time after which the police registered the formal complaint. She called her parents and wanted to go home. I accept it is in man's nature.

Satpute said that at her insistence, police on Thursday recorded Dutta's statement in English instead of Marathi as she did not want a repeat of what happened 10 years back. Additional Commissioner of Police, Manoj Kumar Sharma in interaction with PTI said, "We have registered a case against Patekar and others under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (Word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC".
