Tanushree Dutta files 10 crore defamation case against Rakhi Sawant who said that the actress is lying about Nana Patekar for publicity
Tanushree Dutta has been all over the news ever since she triggered India's #MeToo movement after speaking up about how Nana Patekar sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008.
Tanushree quit the film and was replaced by Rakhi Sawant for the particular role in that movie. Speaking to a television channel recently, Rakhi attacked Tanushree and said that she was lying about Nana Patekar to gain publicity.
"These are fake allegations on Nana Patekar ji and Ganesh Acharya. Tanushree Dutta has gone mad. She was in a coma for 10 years. She has just woken up after a coma of 10 years. I don't like saying such things about a woman. I respect women. But this Tanushree Dutta who has returned from America after 10 years is vomiting such things, because she has exhausted all the money from her bank account and has no work, has nothing and is blaming Nana Patekar ji," Rakhi Sawant had said in a statement.
"She is talking about the past, which has nothing to do with the incident. Nothing of this sort ever happened. If something like this would have happened...have you seen my song with Nana Patekar...he did not even touch me a little," she added.
However, reports say that Tanushree has now filed a defamation case of Rs 10 crore on Rakhi. Advocate Nitin Satpute told the channel, "We have filed a criminal and civil defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for maligning my client's character and image," he said while adding that if she failed to reply, Rakhi would be punished for two years.
