The actor, who also runs the NGO Naam Foundation, announced that he would be building 500 houses for the 2019 Flood victims in the region of Shirol, Kolhapur, Maharashtra.
In June 2019, Patekar was cleared of the sexual harassment charges by the police. The B-Summary report filed by the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai said that the complaint filed by Tanushree could be "malicious" and "out of revenge". Dutta's lawyers will approach the Bombay High Court for reopening the case.
In 2018, Dutta restated her accusation of being sexually harassed by Patekar in 2018 in interviews to various media outlets and her accusations led to the Me Too movement coming to Bollywood. Subsequently, she complained to the Maharashtra Women Commission and demanded an investigation into the allegations of harassment levelled by Ms Dutta against Nana Patekar, Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddiqui, director Rakesh Sarang, and several Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) party workers. In the late hours of 10 October 2018, An FIR was registered against actor Patekar and three others at Oshiwara police station following a complaint by Dutta late on Wednesday night. Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, director Rakesh Sarang, producer Samee Siddiqui were booked for molestation and obscenity under the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Patekar is known for his simple lifestyle and his generosity in donating to charities. He contributed money towards rebuilding of the flood ravaged villages in Bihar through the charitable organisation Anubhuthi. All the monetary remuneration he obtained for his performance in the movie Paathshaala was donated by him to five different charitable organisations. When he was awarded the Raj Kapoor award which carries a cash prize of Rs 1,000,000, he donated the entire amount towards drought relief activities in Maharashtra. He also provided financial aid to families of farmers who committed suicide due to indebtedness brought about by drought. He distributed cheques worth Rs 15,000 to 62 families of farmers from Vidarbha region in August 2015 and another 113 families from Latur and Osmanabad districts of Marathwada in September 2015.

In 2008, Tanushree Dutta accused Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the movie Horn 'Ok' Pleassss. In March 2008, she filed a complaint with 'CINTAA'(Cine & TV Artists Association) but no action was taken then. This allegation was repeated in an interview in 2013 and again made in 2018.
