The ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ famed actress Tanushree Dutta caused a massive uproar in the media after she accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct. Since then, she has become a topic of discussion. However, just when it created a turmoil on social media, Nana Patekar finally decided to break his silence on the claims against him.

We were on the set and there were 200 people sitting in front of us,” he told an Indian publication.
