Sunita Rajwar, the talented actress who made her mark in Panchayat, embarked on her Hindi film industry journey in 2003. Over the course of nearly two decades, she has been lauded for her dedication and hard work, earning recognition for her memorable roles as ‘Kranti Devi’ in TVF’s web series, Panchayat, and ‘Bittu Ki Mummy’ in Gullak.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui tagged Sunita Rajwar’s defamation suit as ‘cheap publicity’ stunt

Meanwhile, after Nawazuddin withdrew the book, Sunita Rajwar also filed a defamation lawsuit against the actor of Rs. 2 crore for ruining her image and causing her mental agony. Moreover, a report by Mid-Day stated that Nawazuddin had responded to the allegations levied by Sunita and had termed them as ‘cheap publicity’ stunts. The actor also claimed that he was referring to some other Sunita and not Sunita Rajwar. But, the latter refuted his claims and revealed to Mumbai Mirror:

“He is lying that I am not the same Sunita. He himself has given all the evidence in his memoir that says I am the one he is talking about. First, he wrote my name in the book along with the National School of Drama, although without surname, but there was no other Sunita in NSD during our batch. Then he referred to that girl as Pahadi Girl, again there was no other girl from the hills, other than me. Then he also mentioned that the Sunita in his book was a roommate of famous television actress Achint Kaur, because of whose influence she might have left him, so it's clear as I was sharing accommodation with Achint Kaur.”
