    Earlier last week, Dutta slapped a Rs 10 crore defamation suit against Sawant for accusing her of consuming drugs on the sets of the 2008 movie 'Horn Ok Pleassss'.

    The lawsuit came a fortnight after Dutta had outed her ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ co-star Nana Patekar of sexual misbehaviour on the sets of the same film.

    Sawant, who had eventually replaced Dutta in the film, hit back at her accusations, claiming that the latter had "consumed drugs and was consequently unconscious for four hours on the the set."

    Dutta's lawyer, Nitin Satpute, said that if Sawant fails to respond, she may face punishment for two years or a fine or both.

    Not one to take things lightly, Dutta has now issued a statement against Sawant. She has said that Sawant is tryin g to belittle her and tarnish her image and that her lies will soon fall apart. Dutta has boldly stated that she and her likes will "perish along with their lies".

    The #MeToo movement in India has gained momentum since Dutta's claims against Patekar with many prominent film and media personalities, including Vikas Bahl, Anu Malik, Alok Nath, being called out for harassment.
