Rakhi Sawant has always been queen bee when it comes to controversies. This year too she retained her title as she flooded us with questionable words spewed from her mouth and into our social media feed. While some of the points she raised unwillingly made us reward her for her wit, others pulled her back to being a laughing stock. In 2017, she kept us entertained for the most part. Here is a list of our favourite controversies.1. When she spoke on Padmavati
Bollywood came together to support Padmavati and its artistic freedom. Seeing others comment, Rakhi too stepped up her game with a Facebook video showing her support as she flipped her hair in a hotel room. Following the post, she alleged being threatened by Karni Sena and even lodged an FIR against the group in November.2. When she gave a sex-ed class to promote a new condom brand
“Sunny Leone, Bipasha Basu and me, we all launched condom brands but mera wala best hai kyun ki wo dhoka nahin dega,” said Rakhi in a video while shooting for an upcoming condom brand. Her sex-ed video included mentioning all the flavours of the brand, listing special features of the condom.3. When she said Ram Rahim had his eyes on her
Rakhi Sawant starred in the Dera Saccha chief’s movie right before his arrest on charges of sexual assault and molestation. As the rest of the country fumed over the revelations and deaths following his arrest, Rakhi prudently stepped in, in support of Ram Rahim’s sister Honeypreet Singh in October before saying she respected Ram Rahim but never considered him divine.4. Rakhi Sawant wears burqa to court hearing
The controversy queen landed in a new controversy while defending herself in court for another scandalous comment. Sawant walked in to a Ludhiana court in a burqa to ask for bail in a case lodged against her for making objectionable remarks against sage Valmiki in July.
