Controversy’s favourite child, Rakhi Sawant is back to doing what she does and has stirred up a story, yet again. Recently, Rakhi made heads turn when pictures of her posing with Pakistan flag on her went viral on social media. The item girl has been part of many controversies but the recent one has got her trolled from fans on social media. From being called a traitor to being called a Pakistan lover, Rakhi Sawant was trolled mercilessly by people on social media. In her defence, Rakhi Sawant has stated that she doesn’t care what people think of her and if Modiji feels she’s wrong, he can put her behind bars.
We got in touch with Rakhi Sawant on the ongoing Pakistani flag controversy and looks like Rakhi is in no mood to give any weightage to the social media trolls. “Kyun objection liya? (Why did they object it) Why did they not object release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan? A Pakistani guy helps an Indian guy in the film. This is my problem that I have uploaded the video on my Instagram. Those who are interested will see, others will just ignore it. If anyone wants to take any objection, Modiji will take objection and if he feels he will put me in jail. I am not the first actor to essay Pakistani character on screen or has held a Pakistani flag.”
“The film’s name is Dhara 370 and the film’s story is based on Kashmir issues and is a beautiful love story. The film depicts the hardships the locals face, the women go through and how small kids on the name of jihad are pushed into difficult situations and they end up being terrorists. There’s Hiten Tejwani in the film who plays an Indian character and how he falls for a Pakistani girl and the drama unfolds. I play a Pakistani girl and why should we say or portray anyone’s flag in the wrong way? When they don’t say or show our flag in the wrong way then why should we? We don’t show or say anything wrong about American or Russian flags they why should we say anything wrong against Pakistani flag? We have an issue with terrorism, terrorists. In the film, I play a Pakistani girl who helps little children flee from a terror camp and in one of the scenes a flag flies and lands on me while I am doing my belly dance” she added.
Rakhi also posted a video form the sets of her film Dhara 370 where she is seen dancing on the song.
“Who are these people to take objection on my picture? People won’t let you live, I am part of this film where I am playing a Pakistani character and that doesn’t mean I am a Pakistani and I have got Pakistani passport and that’s my character. We should be a better human being first then Indian or Pakistanis. I am against terrorism, terrorists and jihadis. I am not against any country. I really felt bad doing the scene with Pakistani flag because mai pure Indian hu (sic). I love my country and I love my flag. But we have to respect all the flags.”
"In today’s time, if I put Indian tricolour on my face, it will be a very big controversy. People will say Rakhi has put Ashok chakra on her face and that she has insulted the Indian flag. But I have put a Pakistani flag, what is the problem? I am just doing my film’s publicity on Instagram which everyone does. I want people to create controversy. They did the same with Padmaavat."
