It's been a long time coming.

Nana Patekar, accused of sexual misconduct by Tanushree Dutta in a News18 interview which then sparked off India's #MeToo campaign, finally addressed the media on the same. For one minute. After avoiding any and all calls for comment, Patekar finally held a press conference in Mumbai to address the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by the actress. In a one-minute press conference, which he had backed out of earlier, Patekar finally agreed to address the public.

However, the actor refused to take any questions from the media, saying his lawyer has asked him to not comment on anything related to the case.

"My advocate has strictly asked me to not speak to any news channel. Otherwise why I will not talk to the media. I wouldn’t have had any issue in talking to media but I have to follow what my advocate has asked me to do,” Nana said.

When further prodded, Nana said, “I will still maintain what I had said ten years ago. Truth doesn’t change.”

Nana's lawyer Rajendra Shirodkar on Thursday sent a legal notice to Tanushree after she accused the actor of misbehaving with her physically and verbally while filming a dance number on the sets of 2008 film Horn OK Pleassss.
