Nana Patekar on Monday stuck to his stand that he did not misbehave with actor Tanushree Dutta on the sets of a 2008 film “Horn Ok Pleassss” and dismissed her allegations as a “lie”.
In a recent TV interview, Dutta alleged Patekar misbehaved with her when the two were shooting a special song for “Horn Ok Pleassss” 10 years ago.
“I said this 10 years ago too. What was true then remains true today. My legal team has asked me not to speak. Otherwise, why will I not speak to you guys,” Patekar told reporters at Mumbai on Monday?
The actor, who was to hold a press conference, briefly addressed the media at his residence, saying he cannot talk in detail about the case.
“I will follow what my lawyer has said. So please pardon me,” he added.
The 67-year-old actor’s lawyer has sent a legal notice to Dutta for allegedly making false accusations against him in an incident that dates back to a decade.
Dutta has also filed a complaint with the Mumbai Police against Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and the director and producer of the 2008 film. PTI
