There have been reports about veteran actor Nana Patekar missing from the sets of Housefull 4 in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, where the film is being shot.

It was reported that though the actor had reached the desert town, he was nowhere to be seen on the sets and director Sajid Khan might shoot his scenes later.

Patekar's absence was attributed to the raging controversy following actress Tanushree Dutta accusing him of trying to molest her in 2008 on the sets of Horn OK Pleassss for which she was to shoot a dance number.

However, a source close to the production house confirmed that Patekar is on the sets and shooting for his scenes. “Nana is well and truly on the sets and shooting for the film with the rest of the cast," the source said. "News about him not being on the sets is false. There is a light-hearted atmosphere on the sets among the team.” 

The source added that Patekar's schedule will get over next week, following which he will return to Mumbai.
