Tanushree Dutta lashes out at director Urvashi

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.

‘Dhol’, an uninspiring slapstick comedy

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.

Tanushree Dutta burst out laughing too

Recently, Tanushree Dutta fell headlong into a ditch while shooting a stunt scene for a film. Her co-stars Rahul Khanna and Sharman Joshi couldn't stop laughing when they saw the replays on monitor. But she never used the opportunity to hog sympathy and attention due to this. Even she burst out laughing too.

Tanushree out of 'Mr. Fraud'

Tanushree Dutta has been dropped from Abbas Mustan's next 'Mr. Fraud' with Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan and Bipasha Basu. However, Tanushree Dutta says that she is not dejected.The actress claims that she is quite happy at the fact that the director duo has given her another film in exchange of this one. Says Dutta, "My role in 'Mr. Fraud' was insignificant. They tried to work it out but it didn't shape up too well. It's better not to take up half-baked things. Abbas Mustan told me that since I have just started getting films with substantial roles, an insignificant role would adversely affect my image. So, they promised me another film instead which will materialize soon," she adds.Well, we hope that the other film really does materialize.
