Rani Chatterjee, who is a renowned name in Bhojpuri Industry, made her TV debut last year with reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 10. The actress' recent post on Instagram revealed that she is under depression after a 60-year-old man named Dhananjai Singh has been constantly making derogatory comments over her body and age.
Rani in her post also mentioned that she can't take it anymore. And now talking to us exclusively on it, Rani reveals what made her finally come out and confess what she is going through.
"Since 2012, this guy who calls himself a journalist, which he is not, has been making remarks on my body, age and character. This person has always attacked me personally and has written shameful things about me. Whenever I post a photo on my social media handles, he shares it on his page and makes ill remarks, after which his followers too jump in to write dirty comments. Initially, when he started doing these things, I had called him and asked- Do you have any personal problem with me? Why are you doing such things? To which he had replied, 'No, I write for the overall Bhojpuri industry which promotes dirt. And I told him if you are against the industry then write about my film. If I have done something, report that also but please don't make such personal comments as it motivates others to also talk nonsense about me. But he hasn't stopped," said Rani.
The actress added, "Now, when we are in lockdown for the last 4 months, the maximum time we are spending is on phones, especially social media. And when I read such things, I felt disturbed. Usually when I am busy with shoots, I hardly see what people are saying and writing about me unless my team sends me something. Recently, when I checked shared posts from my fans and known people, I was taken aback. It has hit my mind so badly that I have started feeling depressed. My hair has started falling and there are dark circles under my eyes. My family got worried and my mother took me to a doctor last week, who told her she has been overthinking on something and is stressed. After which I confessed to my family what I am going through and now the condition is such that I am taking pills."
When asked what is stopping her from taking legal action against him, Rani said, "So, this guy is very smart. He never writes my full name and makes a comment. Like vo moti Rani Chatterjee. He writes about me in an indirect way. And hence when I discussed filing a police complaint against him, everyone suggested it may not help you. However, I have decided to get all his dirt out and share the screen grabs of whatever gibberish he has written for me and report to cyber cell. Not just me he has been harassing other Bhojpuri actors too. Another actress Anjana Singh had also filed a police complaint against him last year in Lucknow. But I feel he hasn't learnt a lesson. This guy posts something and sits but he doesn't understand what we have to go through. In real life people come and actually ask us about such things. And I feel it's high time now. I have come out and named him because tomorrow if I decide to end my life due to depression then people should know who was behind it. And not keep thinking what is the real reason for my death. Due to God's grace, I have a wonderful life but this man with his cheap tactics is mentally harassing me and I want to get rid of him."
Revealing a bit about his cheap comments, Rani shared a few examples and said, "I am quite active on TikTok, so when the ban was announced he wrote, 'Bhojpuri industry ki vo buddhi actress paan ka dukaan kholegi dhanda band hone par'. Last year, when I had posted a picture of Karvachauth he wrote, 'Batao inko bhi Karvachauth karna hai but inko khud nahi pata kitne logo ke liye karna hai'. I recently posted a poster of my film, lady Singham, where in one scene I am wearing a nighty, so sharing that poster he writes which police person wears a nighty and roams? She has become old but not refraining from showing off."
After posting this on social media last night, he has given me a strong reaction. On his Facebook he has written that, 'People are trying to threaten me. I talk against the Bhojpuri industry and not Rani Chatterjee. And if she feels law is only for her, so if anything happens to me, then she will be responsible for that.'"
