After Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the 2008 film ‘Horn ‘OK’ Pleassss’, the actor has had run-ins with other celebrities as well. One of them has been Rakhi Sawant, who had earlier replaced the ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ actor after her exit from the movie. After the item girl had slammed the latter for her claims and supported Nana, she had also gone on to call her a ‘lesbian’ and a ‘drug addict.’ Tanushree had responded by not just slapping a defamation case demanding Rs 10 crores, but has also filed a police complaint against her.
In the recent state of affairs, Tanushree has released a fresh statement against Rakhi, where she calls the latter’s attack against her because of a ‘conversion attempt gone wrong.’ The former recalls an incident at an airport lounge a year after the 2008 controversy when the ‘Ek Pardesi’ actor tried to convert her to Christianity. Tanushree said she blames 'such people' for getting 'minorities of the country into trouble.' She also said Rakhi called her a ‘homosexual’ because she had shaved off her head, but clears that in both Hindu and Buddhist traditions, it's a norm that signifies devotion to God. On Rakhi's claims of drugs being essential to meditate in the hills, Tanushree said Yogi and Yogins have kept her focus on Samadhi for ages despite snow, rain and fire.
Tanushree further called Rakhi a ‘sex and money obsessed moron’, asking her if she had done ‘plastic surgery' on her brain too.
"My Parents always told me to choose my friends very carefully and I Iearnt 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.
The only time I interacted with her was at the international airport lounge when I was flying out of India many years ago for a stage show abroad. After ignoring her desperate advances several times before she somehow managed to catch hold of me, only to try to convert me to Christianity which she was endorsing that time. 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. I was amazed and shocked by her audacity to have spoken trash about me in 2008 during ‘Horn ‘OK’ Pleassss’ incident without any provocation and yet trying to now, just over a year later in 2009, trying to be friends with me by putting strange ideas in my head about religion. I had just started learning yoga at that point of time after seeing the Jesus dream/vision I often talk about in my interviews and I was an agnostic spiritual seeker. It was because of Rakhi’s ridiculous conversion tactic that I actually decided to read the bible to find if it's really written anywhere that I will go to hell if I'm not a Christian. I didn't find this written anywhere but I got so put off with her and her "jejus" that I decided never to step foot inside a church ever again. Years later, I heard some really spiritual people and started believing again, I accepted Christ in my heart and slowly fell in love with him. I never converted religions, just fell in love with God.
These Rakhi Sawants 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. I guess Rakhi is afraid I will tell people about this incident. I had actually forgotten and didn't bother to respond to her allegations but here: The real reason behind such ludicrous claims. A conversion attempt gone bad!
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, wherein 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 practice. Shame on you Rakhi!
She says that you can't meditate in the mountains if you are not on drugs. Great Yogis and yoginis sat in the Himalayas through snow, rain, fire in deep states of Samadhi, you mean to say they were all on drugs?
You sex and money obsessed moron.Have you done plastic surgery on your brain also?"
