He is quoted saying to the media reporters back then as, "I don't know what is happening".
The Oshiwara Police Station in recent reports has asserted that they have indeed received a complaint from Dutta and are now investigating matter.
"But we also want to hear Nana's side of the story.
Truth won't change." Actor Tanushree Dutta had alleged last month that Patekar harassed her on the sets of "Horn Ok Pleassss". "Although we have spoken and written to her (regarding the matter) she is yet to revert", Amit Behl, Senior Joint Secretary, CINTAA, told PTI. "We have sent a communication to Nana also", Behl added. The actress has also accused choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang and others for not only trying to cover up the incident but for also not coming out in support of her.
On Monday, he cancelled the press conference where he was due to address the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by actress Tanushree Dutta.
Several actors from Bollywood lauded Dutta for talking about this incident but there were some celebrities who questioned her for not taking a legal route.
"The narrative of the video was edited in a way that it looks like Kumar is expressing his views on the Dutta-Patekar controversy, which he never did", said an officer to HT. Nana Patekar returned from shooting "Housefull 4" in Jaisalmer and was mobbed by the paps at the airport.
Nana had dismissed the allegations while a journalist and an assistant director on the film corroborated Tanushree's account.
Ms Dutta's allegations triggered a firestorm of #MeToo allegations, many of them on social media.
"Nana Patekar's behaviour was inappropriate towards me, he was on the set despite (the fact) his work in the song was over".
