After actress Tanushree Dutta filed Rs 10 crore defamation case on Rakhi Sawant for her controversial remarks, the latter has threatened to slap her with Rs 50 crore defamation suit. Rakhi has shared a series of Instagram stories in which she stated that she will drag Tanushree to court for calling her a lower class girl.
Rakhi shared videos on social networking site, Instagram in which she was seen talking to former journalist-turned-businessman Waahid Ali Khan. Rakhi said, “She has filed a Defamation case against me for 10 crores. I will file one for Rs 50 crore. I will file a Rs 50 crore defamation case against Tanushree for calling me a lower class girl.”
After Tanushree accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008, the latter stepped down from Housefull 4. The investigation is going on but amidst all this, Rakhi called a press conference and stated that the actress is cooking up stories in order to malign Nana’s image. She also claimed that Tanushree consumed drugs on the sets of the film.
This didn’t go down well with the actress. While speaking to Republic TV, her lawyer said, “We have filed a criminal and civil defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for maligning my client’s character and image. If she fails to revert, she will be punished for two years or fined or both.”
Nana was questioned by CINTAA on the ongoing case. He responded stating that accusations levelled against him by the actress are false and baseless.
In the wake of ongoing #MeToo movement, many big names have been accused of harassment, sexual misconduct and even rape. From Alok Nath, Subhash Ghai to Vikas Bahl, the names of some renowned celebs have added to the list of accusers.
