Without knowing the veracity of something, it's not right for me to comment on it. But whenever something like this does happen, it's a sad thing.

Earlier, during the launch of the Thugs of Hindostan trailer, when Amitabh Bachchan was asked to opine on the ongoing controversy, he said that since he was neither Tanushree nor Nana, he would be unable to remark on it. Nana Patekar is yet to comment on Tanushree Dutta's allegations.
In a recent interview with News18, Tanushree Dutta had spoken about Bollywood's silence on #MeToo movement, alleging that Nana Patekar had molested her on the sets of 2008 film Horn 'Ok' Pleassss, where she was supposed to appear for a special number. She said that Nana Patekar had even called members from a political party to intimidate the actress. After the actress opted out from the song, Rakhi Sawant had completed it.
