Nana Patekar on Saturday denied that he misbehaved with actress Tanushree Dutta on the sets of 2008 film Horn Ok Pleasss.
The veteran actor said that all that tanushree is claiming is a ‘lie’ and that he is innocent.
In a recent TV interview, Tanushree alleged that Nana Patekar sexually harassed her when the two were shooting a special song for the film 10 years ago.
She had even said that filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri had misbehaved with her.
Nana Patekar, who was shooting for upcoming film Housefull 4 in Jodhpur, however refuted all these claims.
The actor, who returned from the shoot, told the reporters at the airport, “I said this ten years ago… a lie is a lie (Dus saal pehle bol chuka hoon, ab jo jhoot hai woh jhoot hai’).”
The actor was surrounded by officials as he exited the airport. At the Jodhpur airport, when reporters asked Patekar about the allegations and maintaining silence over it, he chose not to answer any query, but now, this time, he chose to speak up.
But when asked about him addressing the media in detail, the actor said, “It will happen.”
Nana Patekar’s lawyer has already sent a legal notice to Tanushree Dutta, and it is said that the 67-year-old actor is likely to hold a press conference on October 8.
