The teaser shows computer-generated visuals of a confessional and then a courtroom. Patekar speaks in Hindi which translates to, “I have seen the face of truth, even heard its voice. I know the truth but won’t accept it. I am ready to give up my life for it.”
Actress Tanushree Dutta, back in 2018, filed a complaint against Patekar saying that he inappropriately touched her while filming a song on March 26, 2008, on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’.
In Patekar’s case, the Mumbai police filed a B-summary report in the metropolitan magistrate court, Andheri, for closing the case. They said that there was no evidence to keep the case going. Police had also mentioned that Dutta’s accusations were false and revengeful in nature.
