On Wednesday, Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant has filed a lawsuit against Tanushree Dutta for defamation. Tanushree Dutta is accused of making "deeply" and "unwholesome" statement about Rakhi Sawant. According to Rakhi Sawant, this action somehow hurts her and damages her reputation. Rakhi Sawant claimed that  Tanushree Dutta had some pejorative remarks about her in the interview with a TV channel, in which she made an accusation of sexually harassment against Nana Patekar during filming a song for movie Horn OK Pleassss in 2008.

In Rakhi's suit, which was sent to the law court in Malad, she claimed that she has been working in this industry for about twenty years and achieved a “promising career" and became famous. In contrast, Tanushree Dutta, the defendant, had "a disappointing and unstable career in this industry", which is only just 5 years.

Rakhi Sawant added that in order to gain public attention, Tanushree Dutta made "deeply" and "unwholesome" statement about her. Because of this action, she had to face huge losses related to financing. Moreover, her fame was considerably affected by this incident and it will take many years to regain it.

Besides, Rakhi Sawant strongly objected to an article, where Tanushree Dutta used some words like "classless", "characterless", "uneducated" and "uncouth" to talk about her

She wanted the law court to ask Tanushree Dutta to pay "25 paise" for damaging her fame and had to make an apology through the press, social networking and on TV.

Earlier, Actress Tanushree Dutta has filed a defamation suit against Rakhi Sawant for accusing her of consuming drugs on the sets of the 2008 film. Also, Tanushree Dutta had accused veteran actor Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Sameer Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang of having misbehaviour with her while filming a song for the 2008 movie "Horn Ok Please". She also accused Patekar of physically and verbally abusing her while filming some dance scenes for the film.

Speaking about Tanushree Dutta’s accusation against her,  Sawant claimed that the reason why Tanushree Dutta was making such accusations is that "she is mad and tries to gain publicity". Also, Rakhi affirmed that Tanushree Dutta used to consume drugs and she had proof to support her claims too. According to Rakhi, when Tanushree Dutta experienced this incident 10 years ago, she was always there with her. She used to accompany her to parties and Dutta had taken her to rave parties three times. At those parties, Dutta used drugs in front of her and even offered them to her. Because of her, she even took them. Sawant expressed that she's glad that she "ended this friendship".
