Controversial reality TV star and actress Rakhi Sawant knows how to stay in the news. Recently, she created quite a stir when she was seen sporting a fitted black dress with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s picture on it.

High for this: Diva and the drugs

Several Indians found her choice of attire to be disrespectful which prompted Rakhi to respond to them,

But, as can be expected of her, Rakhi’s response was somewhat unusual. The actress uploaded a video in which she not only expressed her love for the current ruling party BJP but also revealed that she had gotten her dress “approved” by the Prime Minister’s office.

Screen grab of Rakhi’s response video

Modi ji jo hain, mere Hindustan ke Prime Minister hain. Aur jitna aap sab ko adhikar hai Modi ji par utna mera adhikaar hai [Modi is India’s Prime Minister and I have as much right over him as all of you do],” she says in the video.

Have television anchors become too powerful in India?

She also said since she’s in the US, she got the special dress made to represent India and ‘Indianso’ in the foreign country.

America mein har larki apnay flag ko two-piece bana kay pehan kay ghoomti hai, mein nay aisa kuch nahi kia [American women wear their flag as a two-piece swimsuit but I didn’t do any such thing],” she added.

    You rock girl….What you said really makes sense. Every one has the right to feel proud of their country and as you also confirmed you have taken approval…you really rock.
    And guess what like in America here in Australia i wear a Slipper which has Australian flag…And no one feels disrespected here…Though I personally feel a Country’s flag should not be used on dress (biknis or board shorts) and slippers…Recommend
