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.
