"She is talking about the past, which has nothing to do with the incident. Nothing of this sort ever happened. If something like this would have happened...have you seen my song with Nana Patekar...he did not even touch me a little," said Rakhi to a television channel.

Tanushree Dutta has slammed Rs 10 crore defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for calling her a liar and saying that her sexual harassment claims against actor Nana Patekar are just for publicity.

The actress has accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment and misconduct on the sets of 'Horn Ok Plssss' after which she dropped out of the project and was replaced by Rakhi Sawant. The incident took place in 2008.

"These are fake allegations on Nana Patekar Ji and Ganesh Acharya," Rakhi had claimed recently to a television channel.

She had further added, "She is talking about the past, which has nothing to do with the incident. Nothing of this sort ever happened. If something like this would have happened...have you seen my song with Nana Patekar...he did not even touch me a little." 

Tanushree Dutta's lawyer, Nitin Satpute said, "We have filed a criminal and civil defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for maligning my client's character and image."

He further said that Rakhee will be punished for two years if she fails to reply.
