Nana Patekar finally addresses the media in Tanushree Dutta's harassment controversy

Nana Patekar excused himself from giving any statement.

Nana, later during a brief meeting with the press, revealed that the press conference he had scheduled to address after Tanushree's allegations had been cancelled on the advice of his lawyer and said that the truth which was there 10 years back, stands true even today. The latter deemed the video fake and has also registered a complaint with the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai Police.

Tanushree has said in a series of interviews that Nana harassed her on the sets of their 2008 film, Horn OK Pleasss, and demanded that she does a sexually explicit step with him.

As Nana Patekar finds himself in the middle of a raging sexual harassment row, his Housefull 4 co-star, Akshay Kumar, filed a complaint with the cyber cell at the Bandra-Kurla Complex regarding a morphed video. "Will let you know about the further proceedings soon". She said that Patekar, 67, was inappropriate during a song sequence for the 2008 move "Horn OK Pleassss". She also named choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang and producer Sami Siddiqui as accomplices in the harassment she faced. Dutta also said that she received threats of a "violent attack" from activists of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena political party when she had protested the incident ten years ago.

Nana has already sent a legal notice to Tanushree.

Nana had dismissed the allegations while a journalist and an assistant director on the film corroborated Tanushree's account.
