An officer told Hindustan Times, "The narrative of the video was edited in a way that it looks like Kumar is expressing his views on the Dutta-Patekar controversy, which he never did". The MSCW issued notices to Nana Patekar, Rakesh Sarang, Ganesh Acharya among others.

"Dutta visited the police station last night and submitted a written complaint", Shailesh Pasalwar, a Mumbai police inspector, told AFP.
