Music videos, a TV bride and a scandalous mother, you would have thought that Rakhi Sawant has done it all. But no, she's got another shocker for you. Taking Rakhi Sawanton the Bible, Rakhi plans to make a television serial based on the life of Jesus Christ.

And will she play Mother Mary? Says Rakhi, "Maine abhi decide nahi kiya. I'll either play Mary or Mary Magdalene."

Right. And is she looking for Kunal Kapoor or Hrithik Roshan for Jesus. "No, main bahut saare ladko ka audition kar rahi hoon, mujhe bahut hi soft soft ladke chahiye Jejus ke liye, aur who Jejus khud mujhe denge. Khud mere office mein ladka bhejenge," says the "very much believer". Lest you think Rakhi will be spouting Biblical verses in her show, don't worry. Her Jejus is "full Indian". "Full Indian style mein bana rahi hungi. Language totally Indian hogi."

And the controversy queen seems keen to stay clear of trouble this time. "I've thought of a scriptwriter and we've spoken to a church as well. It's the story of the holy Bible so you have to be careful. You have to do what the scriptures say."

And Rakhi seems to be aiming for a Nobel prize. "I'm going to do so many things that will change the world and they will say they did not know the reality of life till now. Like my life changed thanks to Jejus, I'm going to tell the truth about Jejus, people think Jejus is for Catholics, foreigners and Americans, but he is the God of all men."

She says this will her tribute to Jesus who has given "name, fame and everything".
