Nana Patekar excused himself from giving any statement.

Actor Nana Patekar on Monday said the truth about actress Tanushree Dutta's allegations of sexual harassment against him has not changed even a decade later, reported ANI.

A few days ago, Tanushree Dutta, in an interview with Zoom channel, revealed how Nana Patekar harassed her during a song shoot on the sets of Horn OK Pleassss. However, the 67-year-old actor later said that he would hold a press conference after his return to Mumbai. According to sources, Akshay's complaint states that the video was taken during a media interaction where he was asked about another actor but it was edited in a way that it appears as if he's speaking against Tanushree Dutta. "As of now there is not any FIR registered in this case", Additional Commissioner of Police (West) Manoj Kumar Sharma told news agency PTI.

Last week, Tanushree also filed a written complaint on the same at the Oshiwara police station here.

Agnihotri's lawyers denied the charges and sent Dutta a legal notice for defamation. In 2008 too, he had held a conference to dismiss the allegations.

The Natsamrat star today addressed the media and said that whatever he said 10 years back, will say the same thing and that is the truth.

Earlier, Nana Patekar's son Malhar informed the media that the press conference has been cancelled: "Sorry to be messaging at this hour, just wanted to inform that there's no press conference tomorrow, please pass on the message to your colleagues in the media".
