Today my faith has been broken.My spiritual journey started in 2009 with a vision of Jesus Christ and henceforth I experienced different religions,yoga,meditation and Buddhism,scientology,Islam etc but I always held my faith in God through Jesus in the highest esteem,I never wanted to be a religious person but rather I had a spiritual bent of mind and hence whenever there was an opportunity to learn something new I took it.I believed God loved me and I believed Jesus loved me.Today I see a liar like Rakhi Sawant being prayed for by priests after her injury.Couldn't they also reprimand her for bearing false testimony?? Is this what they teach you in church?? To say horrible things about someone just because you don't agree to what they stand for..to attack people?? to speak shit about ppl for your own gains?? To lie blatantly??I hear her talk about her Christian faith.And I along with the whole country heard her mouth vile,vicious,damming lies about me in full public display without any remorse or fear of God.She wanted to silence me from the #metoo while getting some mileage and providing laughworthy entertainment.She could not achieve my silence but she has achieved what I thought was unachievable..to break my faith in Jesus.I declare today that I will never step foot inside a church ever again untill Rakhi Sawant confesses to her lies about me and apologises in Public.You become what you worship and if Rakhi can lie through her teeth and profess being a believer in Christ then perhaps her Jesus must be a liar too!! I'm glad I didn't get baptised when I had a chance.It would be like marrying someone who allows liars,cheats and mudslingers,so called churchgoers to throw venom at you all the while telling you that he loves you.Jesus you have disappointed me..It's either Rakhi or me.Choose!!-Tanushree Dutta

After Tanushree Dutta filed a Rs 10 crore defamation case against Rakhi Sawant, the latter had threatened to hit back with a Rs 50 crore defamation suit. In a series of Instagram videos, where Rakhi gave an interview to former journalist-turned-businessman Waahid Ali Khan, she accused Tanushree of trying to hog publicity, take drugs and more.

“’She has filed a Defamation case against me for 10 crores. I will file one for Rs 50 crore. I will file a Rs 50 crore defamation case against Tanushree for calling me a lower class girl.”

“Nana Patekar and Raj Thackeray have not given attention to Tanushree Dutta. She tried her best to rob them, this was a publicity stunt for a passport, Visa or a bank account or even if it’s for her Bollywood comeback. They did not give her any attention so now she feels that she should target me.”

Rakhi even claimed that Tanushree had "consumed drugs and was consequently unconscious for four hours on the sets” of Horn Ok Pleasss. She also claimed that it was thanks to Tanushree’s influence that she attended rave parties and consumed drugs.

“Thank god I ended our friendship otherwise even I would have to go to rehab and become bald.”

Tanushree Dutta's advocate Nitin Satpute said on 22 October that they have filed a defamation case against actor Rakhi Sawant. Rakhi held a press conference supporting Nana Patekar a few days back in which she maligned Tanushree calling her a liar and unhinged.

According to Times of India, Rakhi said, “Was she (Tanushree) in coma for 10 years?” and also accused her of blaming Nana for publicity. Tanushree has now filed a civil and criminal defamation case for Rs 10 crore against Rakhi.

Tanushree's lawyer Nitin Satpute spoke to Republic TV and said, “We have filed a criminal and civil defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for maligning my client's character and image. If she fails to revert, she will be punished for two years or fined or both.”

In 2008, when Tanushree had refused to do an inappropriate step with Nana Patekar on the sets of Horn OK Pleasss, the producers had replaced her with Rakhi Sawant who shot for the item number.
