Recently, Rakhi Sawant made some really shocking statements against actress Tanushree Dutta and then she slammed Rakhi’s statement for disrespecting her #MeToo experience while working on the sets of Horn Ok Please in 2008.
The war has ignited more fire when Rakhi called her a liar and a serious drug addict, to which Tanushree responded by slamming Rs. 10 crore defamation suit on her. Amidst this, Rakhi went on to hold a press conference where she accused Tanushree of raping her several times twelve years ago. She also called her a “man from inside” and a “lesbian.” Rakhi also mentioned that she and Tanushree were former best friends once upon a time and took Rakhi to many rave parties where she also forced her to consume drugs.
After this press conference, Tanushree came out with a statement where she clearly mentioned that Rakhi was never her friend and also called her “downmarket.” She said, “My parents always told me to choose my friends very carefully and I learnt to live by that advice. I simply avoid at all cost people I think are not good for me. So it's disgusting when uncouth, uneducated, dirty, downmarket, classless, characterless, perverted, degraded abominations like Rakhi Sawant claim to ever be friends with me.”
According to what Tanushree said in her statement, she only had one proper interaction with Rakhi back in 2009 when they both co-insidently met a an international airport lounge. Actress also mentioned that she tried ignoring Rakhi multiple times at many events but somehow she managed to catch a hold of her. "She told me that I will go to hell if I don't believe in Jejus. Of course, the fanatic fool didn't have an answer when I asked her the exact location of heaven and hell. Then Rakhi went on to trash Hinduism and murti puja by calling it devil worship. At this point, I got disgusted with her and told her to back off," she said.
Tanushree adds that Rakhi Sawant is a "agnostic spiritual seeker", and that she actually made her feel ridiculous about not being able to believe in Christianity. It was only after many years that now she believes in Jesus Christ and fell in love with him on her own.
"These Rakhi Sawant's of the world are the kind of people who are the reason the minorities get into trouble in our country. When they are Hindu, they talk badly about other religions and when they convert, they talk badly about Hinduism. But the good ones get judged by the behaviour of these so-called converts," actress wrote adding that the “real reason” why Rakhi has been badmouthing is because of “a conversion attempt gone bad.”
Rakhi made statements like, “ Tanushree is a lesbian” and the reason why she shaved her head was because “she is a man from inside,” in her press conference, to which Tanushree responded, “Calling me homosexual because I shaved my head. In both the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, when one gets 'diksha' or initiation into deep spiritual practises or yogic sadhana, out of devotion and surrender to God and guru, one gives up their identity signified by giving up the hair. Insulting a serious Hindu tradition by calling it a homosexual practise... Shame on you Rakhi!”
Aashq Banaya Aapne actresses furthercalled Rakhi a “sex and money obsessed moron” and asked her “Have you done plastic surgery on your brain also?” She ends her statement by saying “You (Rakhi) will perish along with your lies and so will your friends who have put you up for it.”
