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

Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar

Nana Patekar on Monday addressed the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by Tanushree Dutta.

Tanushree Dutta stirred up a hornet's nest after she accused Nana Patekar of sexually assaulting her on the sets of their 2008 film Horn Ok Pleassss.

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.

Nana Patekar excused himself from giving any statement.

Earlier on Sunday night, his son, Malhar, had sent out a message that the press conference would not take place. Nana Patekar's lawyer has already sent a legal notice the actress for maligning the image of his client and has demanded publicly apology from her. "Will let you know about the further proceedings soon, regards", reports news agency PTI.

In the same, Tanushree has alleged in her recent complaint of outraging her modesty stating that Nana Patekar had touched her inappropriately and indecently during the shoot of the song. The actress also said that even Choreographer Ganesh Acharya misbehaved with her. Nana, on the other hand, has called all the allegations false, but Tanushree Dutta remains firm on her words. The complaint said that a few days ago, Akshay was indeed interacting with the media and was asked about another actress, however, the morphed clip had someone edit his answer with the name Tanushree and it appeared he was speaking against her.
