, sees Patel team up with rap star IshQ Bector. The two have co-written the Hinglish song, which was released on YouTube on Tuesday evening and has Patel rapping about the MMS scandal: “Something or another kept falling out of place, a leaked MMS, and disgrace, slapped on my face. No, I didn’t do it, but I paid the price for it. Broken ties, faith and trust, made me feel like s**t.”
At the time of the video’s recording, Patel had said, “I was always judged for my silence. This video is actually a medium to express my true self...” Patel’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar admits that the timing of the video is for “some publicity”, but adds, “He wants to prove that he is not a bad human being. He wants to put his career back on track.”
When Ashmit had said on the show that the MMS was real and got leaked when he gave his phone for repair, Riya Sen had told
, “Had it been real, I would have sent him to jail long back.”
