Sawant protests the Board's ban on her song 'Kamini Tera...' and gives them a week's ultimatum to explain themselves. If not then Fast unto death!
Rakhi Sawant has given the Censor Board a week to explain what she considers their irrational decision to ban her song. "I'll wait for a week and then I go on a fast unto death in front of the Censor office," she warns.
The always-in-the-news actress is excessively angry with the Board. "I've sent a legal notice to the Censor Board. This is the first time something like this has happened. The members of the Board have done me an injustice by deleting the word 'kamini' from my song. Dharmendra has been saying the word 'kaminey' for years.
Vishal Bhardwaj's Kaminey came, were they asleep? If Rakhi Sawant sings Kamini Tera Bhoot Chad Gaya Re, they get stung. The song has been produced by my company Faith Inc. and I'm being damaged."
The argument that the word 'kamini' is inappropriate on television holds no water for Rakhi. "Kyon? In the trailers of Ishqiya they show Vidya Balan punch-drunk on television, and that too in a saree. Is that allowed in our culture? Ladkiyan khule-aam choli utaar rahi hai.
What was Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai? What were they asking? We all know what's behind the choli. If that can be air played for years why can't my song be telecast?"
Rakhi then takes off on television serials. "In serials, we have men dragging their wives by their hair muttering. 'Kamini main tujhe chodunga nahin.' No one pays any attention. Why point a finger at me? Stop all the malpractice on television and I too will shut up."
