Tanushree said in her statement that during the shooting of a song of the film Horn OK Please in 2008, Nana had 'tried to sexually abuse' her. Tanushree had said that the song was to be filmed on only one actor, but still Nana was present on the set on the day of shooting.

What did Nana Patekar say on Tanushree Dutta's allegations?

In an interview to 'The Lallantop', Nana Patekar said that he knew from the beginning that the allegations made by Tanushree Dutta were false, that is why he never got angry. He said, 'I knew that all this was a lie. That is why I did not get angry. Why should I get angry when everything was a lie? And all those things are old. They have happened. What can we talk about them? Everyone knew the truth. What could I say at that time, when nothing like this had happened? Suddenly someone says that you did this, you did that. How would I have answered all these things? Should I have said that I did not do this? I know the truth that I did not do anything.'
