Rakhi Sawant, after wearing that sensational, albeit controversial, dress with Narendra Modi motifs all over it, has now released a video explaining why she did what she did.
The actor, reality TV star, politician and a deliverer of justice (remember Rakhi Ka Insaaf on NDTV Imagine?), tells her fans in the 50-second video that she wore the dress because “Every Indian has a right over their Prime Minister.”
Unapologetic and brash as ever, she ensured that the dress was lying right behind her on a bed in the video. In her defence, she says that “every girl in the US gets a ‘two-piece’ (bikini) made out of their flag”, and she merely got cut outs of our respectable PM’s face and pasted them on the dress.
Rakhi claims she “loves BJP, loves Modi Ji” and also got the approval from “Amit Shah’s assistants” to wear the dress. The fashionable artwork was chosen by Rakhi to be worn for a pre-Independence Day party in Chicago.
Here’s how our countrymen and women came together to appreciate Rakhi and her dress:
The placement of Modi's hand upon Rakhi Sawant's bottom is either a hilarious joke or an unfortunate coincidence. pic.twitter.com/A6OICcarHL— Sorabh Pant (@hankypanty) August 10, 2016
