Days after calling Nana Patekar out for his alleged sexual misconduct on the sets of Horn OK Pleassss, actress Tanushree Dutta has filed a defamation suit against Rakhi Sawant for accusing her of consuming drugs on the sets of the 2008 film. The suit demands damages of Rs 10 crore from Sawant.
Tanushree’s advocate Nitin Satpute confirming the same said “On behalf of Tanushree Dutta, we have filed a defamation case of Rs 10 crore on Rakhi Sawant. A criminal and civil defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for maligning my client’s character and image.”
Tanushree had accused actor Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her during the shooting of Horn Ok Pleassss. She had also blamed choreographer Ganesh Acharya and the filmmakers.
She further said that Nana called goons who vandalised her car when she raised objections to the uncomfortable choreography and Nana’s behaviour. Tanushree was soon replaced by Rakhi Sawant in the same song, which eventually was titled “Nathani Utaaro”.
Defending Patekar, Sawant, in a press conference, claimed that Dutta was making such allegations because “she is mad and trying to gain publicity.” Sawant also called Dutta a “doped”, saying she “would consume drugs and remain unconscious for hours on the film set.”
