Dutta has accused Patekar of harassing her on the sets of a film 10 years ago.
A few days back, actress Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of harassing her on the sets of a film which the two were working in together. The incident had taken place 10 years back and Dutta had ultimately walked out of the project owing to the harassment she was subjected to.
As Dutta spoke up about the incident recently, she stated that how the #MeToo movemnet would never come to India as Bollywood chooses to keep mum on issues like these. Now Nana Patekar has broken his silence over the issue.
Speaking to a daily, the actor said, "What can I say why she is saying it? How do I know why she is saying this? What does she mean by sexual harassment? There were 50-100 people on the set with me."

The actor stated that he would seek legal action against the actress. "I'll take legal action against her. But it is waste telling media about it because you will play up anything. Whatever people want to say, they can say. But I will continue doing my work," the actor added
