Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta has taken the industry by storm when she revealed that she was harassed on the sets of the movie ‘Horn Ok Please’ in 2008 by veteran actor Nana Patekar. Tanushree also accused choreographer Ganesh Acharya of speaking in favour of Nana Patekar, who misbehaved with her while filming a song 10 years back.
Now, while many actors such as Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra and Twinkle Khanna came out in full support of Tanushree, Rakhi Sawant has a totally different opinion about the situation.
The actress cum model, who is often subjected to trolls and memes for her stupid comments and meaningless videos, believes that Tanushree Dutta is a liar. In a shameful attempt of victim shaming, she has also labeled her allegations as “fake”.
“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 woke 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 vomitted 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. 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… have you seen it… where is that song…show that song. I have done a song, he did not even touch me a little”
Tanushree in her revelation also claimed that everyone in the industry, despite being well aware of Nana Patekar’s disrespectful attitude towards women, took an action at that time. She also is against the fact that A-listers like Akshay Kumar and Rajnikanth are still working with Nana Patekar.
According to Republic, Rakhi Sawant continued to slam Tanushree and even used abusive language against the actress. She said:
“Does she think she can spoil Nana Patekar’s life or Ganesh Acharya’s life? She has spoken a lot of things about me, and I don’t care! I give a sh*t! Because she is sh*t! Tanushree Dutta is a sh*t! She’s asking who has replaced my song? Rakhi Sawant? That means she wants Aishwarya Rai to replace her song.”
Rakhi Sawant also revealed her angle of the story saying that Tanushree is “cooking up stories” and the real victim of the situation was the crew of the movie.
“She was in the van, vanity van. You can ask anyone from the 500 unit members present there that Tanushree Dutta had locked herself in her vanity van for five long hours. This is an incident that took place 10 years ago, she was just not getting out of the vanity van. Tanushree Dutta was getting doped..dope..or drugs..whatever you call it, she was completely high and was not opening the door. Her make-up man was also knocking on the door and so was the van personnel. She had put four locks and the van personnels should keep a glass in between so if an artist locks himself in, one can break the glass and get in. But she just didn’t get out of the van for five hours and locked herself in. The set was ready, there were a hundred dancers, there were technicians, you understand that the unit was there, such a big set was built, it was worth crores. The set was put up for one or two days, she shot on the first day, and it was lunch break …or what it was, I don’t know. But all of this had happened after the lunch break. She had locked herself and was not ready to come out. The assistants went, assistant Daisy Shah..Daisy Shah was masterji’s assistant at that time. She went to call her, she did not open the door, then the ADs went in and she still didn’t open the door. So many people that day must have tried to get her out, but Tanushree Dutta just didn’t open the door, locked herself in. Masterji told her that he needs to leave so let’s finish the song fast, the set has been put up, the producer is crying about the fact that such a huge set had been put up, madam just didn’t open the door. This is the truth! The stories that she is cooking up, liar, that someone assaulted me, touched me here, touched me there, is all lies!”
Talking about the lynching incident that Tanushree Dutta mentioned in her previous interviews, Rakhi Sawant said:
“There weren’t any of Raj Thackeray’s men. The hair and make-up artists were knocking the door there, people from the unit were nocking the door. Any producer would be worried if an artist doesn’t open the door for one hour, two hours, what has happened. Has she suffered from a heart attack, something happened, happens. It is not necessary that a person suffers from a heart attack only if he is old. You know..It is not necessary. So people will knock the door, That get the artist out, that was people from the unit. You got it?”

This is something really disturbing from Rakhi Sawant, who is a highly controversial figure and known for her nonsense, though we are unaware of the truth. It would now be interesting to see how Tanushree Dutta responds to Rakhi’s comments that provides a completely different view of the situation.
