In an exclusive interaction with Republic TV's Editor-In-Chief Arnab Goswami, Tanushree Dutta fired shots on meeting Nana Patekar face-to-face. On being asked if she would face Nana on the allegations she made against him, she said, "Of course, he is not ready to face me. He cannot face me. I have no qualms although I feel he is a disgusting man who has still not taken responsibility for his actions." 

The actress, who shared minute-by-minute account with Republic TV Editor-In-Chief Arnab Goswami, further added, "That man creeps me out. I don't know, this is a possibility that I did not consider but I will blast the sh*t out of him because he knows he is wrong. He can hide and attack me but in front of me he cannot do anything."
