Nana Patekar addressed Tanushree Dutta sexual harassment claims on Monday afternoon with a one line comment to the media. At the Jodhpur airport, when the reporters asked Nana Patekar about the allegations and maintaining silence over it, he chose not to answer any query. Talking about Nana Patekar, the actor recently wrapped up the Rajasthan schedule of Sajid Khan's Housefull, which features the ensemble star cast of Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon and Kiara Advani in pivotal roles.

Dutta has accused Patekar of sexually harassing and intimidating her on the sets of the 2008 film Horn "OK" Pleassss. The latter deemed the video fake and has also registered a complaint with the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai Police.

Earlier on Sunday night, his son, Malhar, had sent out a message that the press conference would not take place. "Will let you know about the further proceedings soon".

Agnihotri's lawyers denied the charges and sent Dutta a legal notice for defamation.

In the same, Tanushree has alleged in her recent complaint of outraging her modesty stating that Nana Patekar had touched her inappropriately and indecently during the shoot of the song. Says, "The truth which was there 10 years back, stands true even today". She, in turn, has filed a police complaint against Nana, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and the director and producer of the 2008 film.

Nana had dismissed the allegations while a journalist and an assistant director on the film corroborated Tanushree's account.
