Watch Video: Rakhi Sawant reacts to Tanushree Dutta’s defamation case against her
Tanushree Dutta is the flag-bearer of the #MeToo movement in India. The last four weeks have been extremely overwhelming as women from different sectors named and shamed many bigwigs of the Bollywood industry. Tanushree alleged veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct that happened during the shoot of ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ in 2008. While many celebs backed Tanushree, Rakhi Sawant abused the actress and called her a liar. This has irked Tanushree and she filed a Rs 10 crore defamation case against Rakhi.
Rakhi Sawant replaced Tanushree on the item song that was supposed to be performed by the latter for ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’. Earlier in a press conference, Rakhi crossed all the limits defaming Tanushree. Tanushree has also sent a legal notice to Rakhi. Nitin Satpute, Dutta’s lawyer spoke to Republic TV and 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.”
Reacting to this Rakhi shared a video on her Instagram handle saying, “Woh (Tanushree) chahti hain ki aab Rakhi ke naam pe publicity uthayu aur Tanu behenji chali gayi hain court pe.” (Tanushree wants to gain publicity by my name and now she has gone to court.)
