In the wake of Tanushree Dutta’s allegations agains veteran actor Nana Patekar, of sexually harassing her on the sets of the film Horn Ok Pleassss, a decade ago, Nana Patekar finally came to face the media. The actor had been away, shooting for Housefull 4 in Jodhpur and was supposed to hold a press conference on Monday afternoon, to address the issue and the accusations against him by Tanushree. Later, word got out that the press conference stands cancelled.
But turns out that Nana Patekar finally came out to face the media on Monday afternoon around 3: 45 pm, but refused to answer any questions on the controversy. The actor just clarified why he cancelled the press conference and said, “My lawyer has advised me not to speak with any media channel. I always meet you (media) and I did not have any problem in doing so now too but when my lawyer has advised me otherwise this time, I’ll have to listen to him.”
On being asked further just to put out his side or a statement from his end, on what he has to say about the matter, Nana Patekar said, “What I said 10 years back is what I have to say now. What was true yesterday is what’s true today. What’s true today will be the truth in future too. The truth won’t keep on changing.”
The actor left after clarifying why he cancelled the press conference and maintaining the same stance that he had on the issue 10 years back.
