“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,” she told Zoom TV.

In his first response, Nana Patekar told Times Now that he is considering legal action and claimed support from the film unit present at the time. “What do you mean sexual harassment? There were 50-100 people on the set with me,” Patekar said, adding, “Will see what I can do legally. It’s a waste talking (to media), you guys will play up anything.”  “People can say whatever they want to say, I will keep doing my work,” he added.
