The war of words between Tanushree Dutta and Rakhi Sawant is starting to heat up after the latter made lewd comments about the former. Rakhi had recently alleged that she was raped multiple times by Tanushree, who she claims is a lesbian. Tanushree, who is fighting a legal battle against actor Nana Patekar after she accused him of sexually harassing her on the sets of Horn OK Pleasss in 2008, has hit back at Rakhi, asking if she has had plastic surgery done on her brain.

Tanushree had earlier issued a statement about how in the art of guerrilla war tactics, smear campaigns never run fair or square. She also went on to deny that she is neither a lesbian nor does she do drugs, drink alcohol or smoke. Without taking names, she said the perverted character assassination attempts being made to shut her up, will not work.

After staying quiet about the allegations Rakhi made, Tanushree, who said that the #MeToo movement should not be trivialised, has now come out guns blazing to issue a statement against Rakhi. Bollywood Life reported her statement reading as follows:

“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,” Tanushree wrote.

“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 Please incident without any provocation and just over a year later, in 2009, not only trying to be friends with me but 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?? You will perish along with your lies and so will your friends who have put you up to it.”
