Rahul Raj Singh Criminal Defamation Against Vikas and Kamiya: “Pratyusha’s Parents’ Greed Killed Her, Not Me”

Published

Five years after her tragic suicide, television actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s boyfriend model-actor-shows organizer Rahul Raj Singh is still waiting for  a closure to  the case accusing him of abetment  to suicide .

“The Covid pandemic has prolonged  the case much longer than  it  should have. I am waiting for the day when the  court will clear my name. I  know I am not  guilty. I  didn’t kill Pratyusha, her parents’ greed  killed her. She  was  unable to satiate  their endless demands. I tried to save her , not kill her,” says  Rahul Raj emotionally, the memories of  March 27, 2016  still  haunt him.

“I can never forget that day. It is embedded in my mind heart and soul. And the way  Pratyusha’s  so-called friends  Vikas Gupta  and  Kamya Punjabi  tried to pin Pratyusha’s death on me…they have  their conscience and God to answer  to. They know as well as I do that I am not guilty. They also  know why they  did all the tamasha.”

Why?

“For  the  publicity. They  maligned me  without a  shred  of evidence. That last phone call that Pratyusha made  to me  does not  have any  evidence  to prove me guilty. Pratyusha does not  accuse me  even once  in that conversation of anything. All her grief and  anger were  directed at  her parents. They are  the  ones who should be held responsible  . In fact when the  honourable  judge granted me   bail  it  was  on the basis  of that last  phone  conversation between Pratyusha and me,” says Rahul Raj.

 He  intends  to  sue Vikas Gupta  and  Kamya Punjabi  for criminal defamation   as soon as  his name is  cleared in Pratyusha’s case. “They have damaged  my life and career beyond repair. No retaliatory action can give me back my   five lost  years. Since I was held  responsible  for  Pratyusha’s death  all my work  dried  up. All that  I had achieved before  Pratyusha’s death is forgotten. My life  has come to a standstill.I will  sue thse two for  criminal  defamation claiming  Re1 as  compensation.”

 Rahul Raj says he  is digusted by  Vikas Gupta’s  claims  of sharing a relationship with Pratyusha . “Ek  mare hue insaan ko  istemaal kar rahe hain . How  low can he fall? Why has he  suddenly woken up to a relationship with Pratyusha  five  years after her death? A  relationship that he  never had with her. She is  not  here  to  refute his claim.I would have known. She  told me  everything. Vikas should show some shame. Using a  dead girl’s name for  publicity is   the lowest he can fall.”

Rahul reveals that Pratyusha’s parents are  in a pitiable  financial condition. “They are in Mumbai living in  shabby  quarters  with no income. Their golden goose is no more. They can’t go back to  their hometown Jamshedpur .Everyone there knows how they exploited  their daughter.”

The  besmirched  young actor has full faith in  the  judiciary.  “I  believe  in  the law  of  the land. The day I am declared  innocent, I will  start my criminal  defamation  proceedings  against  Vikas Gupta and  Kamia Panjabi. I  want  them in jail  for what they’ve done to me.”

Tanushree Dutta Reacts To Sajid Khan In  Bigg Boss

Tanushree Dutta with Sajid Khan

Like many  who were horrified  to see the MeToo accused Sajid Khan being welcomed into  Bigg Boss with  Salman  Khan’s blessings, actress Tanushree  Dutta who heralded the MeToo movement in  Bollywood,   has also been deeply affected  by this shocking turn  of events.

Speaking  exclusively Tanushree says, “I’m appalled . Speechless at the sheer irresponsibility towards the impact of such a thing on the public. I don’t watch Bigg Boss and I think I never will after this.”

To Tanushree goes the credit for bringing the  MeToo movement  into Bollywood. In 2018 she accused  actor Nana Patekar and several others  of harassment.

Speaking in   an earlier interview Tanushree had said, “It’s been very hard on me emotionally, psychologically and financially these 12 years  after the mob violence on  the sets  of Horn OK Please  in 2008 instigated by Nana Patekar and his goons.I had gone into severe depression post that episode for many years because the level of cunning manipulation, public humiliation and threats I had to endure was too much for me.”

Tanushee says she has  got no support in her fight against  sexual discrimination  from the film fraternity. Instead of getting justice and being  rehabilitated into work in Bollywood, her  primary source of income, she has been further been pushed and forced into legal procedures.

Speaking on the impact of  the MeToo movement  in India ,Tanushree said,  “What I’m most concerned about is what impact might it have on women, girls and boys of the next generation who are being taught about feminism, human rights and empowerment?? I mean you can’t blow the trumpet on empowerment and then have a corrupt and outdated legal system bind you with loopholes.”

When  MeToo-tainted  filmmaker Sajid Khan made a quiet entry into the Bigg Boss  last week , little  did he  expect the uproar that  followed.

 The social media is  filled with howls  of outrage. Singer Sona Mohapatra  called out Javed Akhtar and son  Farhan  for  not speaking  out against  Sajid’s clean-chit treatment.Now Iranian actresses Mandana Karimi, lately in the news for protesting in Mumbai  against the Hijab in her home country, has apparently blown  open the lid on  Sajid Khan’s  stealthy  entry into  Bigg House.

Earlier this week   Mandana announced her decision to quit Bollywood after Sajid’s entry  into Bigg Boss. She  feels there is  little respect for women in Bollywood, and she is not wrong.

In a video clip that Kangana  Ranaut has shared  on social media   from  BBC’s documentary  Death In Bollywood  suicide victim Jiah Khan’s  sister Karishma  has  now  made fresh serious  allegations  against  Sajid Khan .

This  seems to have finally   shaken up the  Bigg Boss producers. There is  now  a serious behind-the-scenes discussion  to evict Sajid Khan immediately.

Sources say the producers Endemol  Shine  India never expected such an uproar against  Khan’s  contestability on Bigg Boss.

“The brand  is  affected(by Sajid Khan’s entry into Bigg Boss). Salman  Khan who hosts  the show is also not sure whether  the decision was the right one.He(Sajid) is likely to be out sooner rather than later,” the source informs.

“No Offence To Nayanthara Fans,” Says  Karan Johar

Nayanthara

Fans of Tamil superstar  Nayanthara have  taken  huge umbrage  to Karan  Johar insisting on Koffee With Karan  that Samantha Prabhu and not Nayanthara  is  the no.1 star, even when Samantha insisted  the crown  belonged  to Nayanthara.

Karan Johar  clarified  that he meant no offence  to Nayanthara. “I said, according to  the list that I  had  from Ormax, Samantha  was  the  no.1 star. Nayanthara’s  fans have misconstrued  the  conversation.”

That’s not all  that a section of Koffee viewers  have misconstrued. Samantha’a tongue-in-cheek sarcastic “confession” that she paid Ormax  to  list her as  the No.1 heroine has  triggered  off stories  in  a section of  the press on the amount she paid for the honour.

“I think  we all need to have a sense of humour.Mine is  a  fun show,” says  Karan.
