He came, he saw but he didn't talk much! This is what we can say about Nana Patekar's much-anticipated press conference to talk about the allegations put up against him by former actress Tanushree Dutta. Nana first called a press conference to break his silence over the controversy and to speak his mind. Later, the press conference was cancelled by him, only to be reinstated later. Then Nana finally came in front of the eager media, sat in front of them for a minute and then tells them that he still stands by what he said 10 years back. He also revealed that his lawyers have advised him to not talk much about this for now. And before we know, the press con was over.

We are sure that Nana might have been told by his legal team that it would be a mistake taking to media right now, so he cancelled the conference the first time. But then there came accusations on Twitter that the actor was too afraid to talk about the issue, and hence the short press con. But we do understand the frustration of the media present there, who expected some explosive comebacks from Nana Patekar but instead was left with very less to discuss.

What a sham of a press conference! If Nana Patekar had just one line to say "I maintain what I had said 10 years ago", he might as well have stayed indoors and continued to evade the media. #TanushreeDutta #MeToo

Now that Nana Patekar and Tanushree Dutta have filed FIR's against each other, we have to see how their legal battle decides who is telling the truth and who isn't.
