Tanushree Dutta has come under fire recently as she was accused by Rakhi Sawant of raping her several times, according to a report by Bollywood Hungama.
“I am too embarrassed to say this but I was raped twelve years ago. Being a girl, I shouldn’t even use this word (rape). I am ashamed, upset and hurting while telling this story,” she stated.
She went on to state that “I want to tell the world that this disgusting incident has taken place with me, not just once but several times. I am afraid to take names because I am getting threats of murder and gang-rape. I have even filed a complaint to the police.”
“Tanushree was my best friend. She forced me into drugs. I was naive and innocent,” she added.
Tanushree strikes back!
Issuing a strong statement against Sawant’s unpleasant claims, Tanushree said,
“For those uninitiated in the art of guerrilla war tactics: Smear campaigns never run fair or square. So just to set the record straight: I’m not a drug addict, I don’t smoke or drink and I’m most definitely not a lesbian.”
Tanushree added how, “too much of a woman for this patriarchal and misogynistic cesspool to handle” and that’s the reason why Rakhi is making “perverted character assassination attempts” to silence her, she said.
“It’s clearly not working. Let’s not make a jokery (sic) of such a serious movement that can potentially bring positive changes of mindset in our society,” she added.
