"It is reported that Nana Patekar has planned to take legal action against Tanushree Dutta for defamation and stated that the allegations levelled against him are baseless and false".

"The false allegations have immensely affected his reputation beyond fix and your organisation (CINTAA) should not entertain such groundless accusations particularly when such allegations are levelled after nearly a decade", it said.

"Tanushree's lawyer has sent us a mail asking us to start or reopen the case, we thought that she would send it herself as we had requested her, now we are consulting our legal cell as to what should be done as she has not even added a cover note, authorising her lawyer to represent her in her own association.hope you understand our quandary".

The "Me Too" movement gained momentum in India after Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta accused Patekar of allegedly misbehaving with her during a film shoot in 2008. The response states that Tanushree's accusations are bordering on mental harassment. She said that after she refused to do it, he tried to lynch her and vandalise her auto through goons. However, the MNS has denied any involvement in the incident, and are furious with her disparaging statements about them and their chief Raj Thackeray. He said that while Nana was "indecent and crazy", he would not do such things.

Speaking at an event here, the MNS chief said, "I know Nana Patekar; he is indecent". He is indecent. He does insane things but I don't think he can do such a thing. However, many other celebs from the industry has come out in open and revealed Alok Nath's misconduct towards women.

According to ANI, Thackeray also alleged that the heightened coverage of the #MeToo movement was being done in a bid to shift focus from issues such as "fuel prices, rupee value and unemployment". "Women must raise their voice when they face oppression, not after 10 years". We'll teach a lesson to accused.
