Rakhi SawantTwo of television’s most controversial faces, Rahul Mahajan and Rakhi Sawant, are on a headline-grabbing spree, yet again. While Mahajan underwent a ‘fidelity test’ on TV, Sawant has threatened to walk out of her latest dance reality show, because the celebrity judges are "harassing" her.

Mahajan, who recently married Dimpy Ganguly on a reality show, was put to a fidelity test by his wife on another TV show Emotional Atyachaar. On it, Mahajan was invited to lunch by three women who flirted outrageously with him. By refusing to reciprocate the attention, Mahajan, who claims he was unaware that the cameras were rolling, passed the test. “There’s nothing wrong in what Dimpy did. She’s my wife and has the right to test me. This will answer those who doubt our relationship,” says Mahajan. Dimpy adds, “I only wanted to clear Rahul’s Casanova image and show the world how loyal he is.”

Having won his wife’s trust, Mahajan’s next stop is politics. “I wish to contest the 2014 Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket. I am preparing myself for that. But I will not be a traditional kurta pyjama politician. I would rather be myself,” he says.

Meanwhile Rakhi Sawant has her own battle to fight. The actress, who is a contestant on the new TV show Zara Nach Ke Dikha, with ex beau Abhishek Awasthi, claims she may quit the show. “I’m being harassed. The judges (Shilpa Shetty, Arshad Warsi and Vaibhavi Merchant) are being mean to me. I work so hard, but they don’t like what I do. Someone doesn’t like my song and someone has a problem with my dance. I am fed up. Also, I can’t perform with Abhishek,” said Sawant on Wednesday. However, a day later, she had a change of heart and said she ‘may stay’.

Talking about the attention seeking duo, adman Prahlad Kakkar says, “Rakhi is fraud and Rahul’s a nobody, so nobody cares about them anymore.”
