Former Bigg Boss contestant Rakhi Sawant accused Tanushree Dutta of ‘raping’ her multiple times in a press conference held yesterday, reported 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,” said the 39-year-old actor.
She shared, “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.”
Rakhi futher added that since people are talking about #MeToo, she now wants a movement called #SheToo to initiate.
The 39-year-old actor continued, “Tanushree was my best friend. She forced me into drugs. I was naive and innocent.”
The Aashiq Banaya Aapne starlet filed a INR10 crore defamation suit against Rakhi. In a countersuit, she filed a INR50 crore lawsuit. Speaking of legal matters, Rakhi stated, “Tanushree has filed a defamation case against me for 10 crores, I will file a 50 crore defamation case against her for calling me a lower class girl.”
Tanushree is yet to respond to the actor’s claims.
