For actress Raveena Tandon, her husband Anil Thadaani and his former wife Natasha, the New Year has already begun on a sad note. Apparently Raveena and Natasha got involved in a fracas at producer Riteish Sidhwani's New Year party this Saturday.

That has been reported quite extensively in the Indian media, with Natasha hurling shocking allegations against Thadani. She reportedly said that he is either impotent or gay. While Raveena had eloquently kept out of the rut, even though she threw wine on the face of Natasha and got away with it, the latest development is that Raveena is planning to file a defamation case against Natasha's father, filmmaker Romu Sippy for a comment that he made against the Thadanis in print.

"It is true that Raveena poured wine on Natasha's head, but she did not injure Natasha. In fact Natasha banged the glass and ended up injuring herself. Now, Raveena might just sue them for their comments, which she feels were unsavoury," a source said.

When contacted, Raveena refused to make any comments. "I do not want to say anything on this now." Insiders maintain that Raveena has no regrets about the incident. "Raveena had been tolerating Natasha who was spreading all kinds of tales about Anil and Raveena. She is not the kind to take things lying down." The problem reportedly goes back a long way. The 'misinformation' Natasha had initially spread about Anil had almost caused Raveena's family to reconsider her marriage to Anil. So when she sat next to Anil at Sidhwani's party, the stage was set for a showdown. And it did happen.

Meanwhile, some sections of the Press have been speculating whether this is Raveena's attempt at self-publicity. Raveena might just make a comeback to movies, and she has been trying to manage some time to pursue acting all over again. "The incident could have been avoided, but Raveena just didn't care. She deliberately went up to Natasha and abused her. Then, she misbehaved and called her names. In fact, immediately after the incident happened, the media was informed through a common source who leaked out the news. It could be a publicity stunt," said another source.

Natasha meanwhile stands by her comments on Anil.
