Tanushree has issued a statement in response to Rakhi Sawant's claims. "For those uninitiated in the art of guerrilla war tactics: Smear campaigns never run fair or square. So just to set the record straight: I'm not a drug addict, I don't smoke or drink and I'm most definitely not a lesbian," she said. In fact, Tanushree said that she was "too much of a woman for this partriachal and misogynistic cesspool to handle". This is why Rakhi was making such "perverted character assasination attempts" to silence her, she said. "It's clearly not working. Let's not make a jokery (sic) of such a serious movement that can potentially bring positive changes of mindset in our society," she concluded.
