On Saturday, Nana Patekar also reacted on the allegations against him and said "A lie Is a lie."

A few days back in an interview, Tanushree Dutta said. "Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. People in the industry know about his background... that he has beaten actresses, he has molested them, his behaviour with women has always been crude but no publication has printed anything about it."

The 34-year-old actress made her Bollywood debut opposite actors Emraan Hashmi and Sonu Sood with the 2005 film Aashiq Banaya Aapne.
