Sawant is facing the suit for maligning Dutta’s character and image
Tanushree Dutta has filed a INR10 crore defamation suit against Rakhi Sawant, reports Indian Express.
Dutta’s lawyer confirmed the news to them, saying, “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 Dutta brought the MeToo movement to Bollywood, accusing actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment during the shooting of film Horn Ok Pleassss. Dutta had revealed that after she stepped down from the performance, Patekar’s goons vandalised her car and the makers of the film did nothing during the incident.
Dutta was replaced by Rakhi Sawant for that very performance.
Sawant had recently spoken about Tanushree’s claims, accusing of her being a drug addict. The now viral video shows Sawant claiming that Dutta was under influence and unconscious on the sets of the film.
Dutta has filed a police complaint against Nana Patekar for the incident.
