Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta, who has been in the news for her ugly spat with director Shona Urvashi while shooting “Saas, Bahu, Sensex” in Pune, refuses to forget “the experience”.
“I’ve taken enough rubbish from them all because my producers Warner Brothers are really cool. But Shona Urvashi has been a nightmare. I wouldn’t even want to go there again. But she has been calling up the media, telling them I’m on drugs and that I am another Parveen Babi.
“Another Parveen? This is my 13th film. Please check with my directors and producers if I’ve ever been erratic in my behaviour. I think these people need to check their own mental balance,” she said.
Tanushree goes back to the beginning of her stint in Pune. “I signed this film without knowing what I was in for. At first, things seemed okay. Shona was the producer and her sister Masume was also part of the cast (though it’s another matter that there seems to be some kind of stress between the sisters). I’ve the main role. Their mother is the producer and father looks after the production. So it was all a family affair.
“I was the outsider. I kept my distance. But may be they didn’t like the fact that I didn’t party with them after work. But if I’ve an early morning shoot, I’d rather sleep and be fresh,” Tanushree said.

Film: “Dhol”; Cast: Tusshar Kapoor, Sharman Joshi, Kunal Khemu, Rajpal Yadav, Tanushree Dutta, Om Puri, Arbaaz Khan; Director: Priyadarshan
Priyadarshan used to be one of my favourite filmmakers… until he decided to turn into a funny man and churn out comedies at the speed of a roadside golgappa wallah serving up golgappas.
Over-spiced, utterly impure in intent and thoroughly suspect in execution, Priyadarshan’s comedies have gone from worse in “Malamaal Weekly” to worst in Bhagam Bhaag”. And his latest ‘all boys-no brains’ comedy is unpalatable.
Losers are a barrel full of laughs in Priyan’s cinematic vision. Yeah, Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty were a laugh riot in “Hera Pheri”. But the boys who followed the farce have gone to seed in rapid succession.
