Call her the Tamasha Queen. Item girl Rakhi Sawant, embroiled in yet another controversy, reacts to all the 'rubbish' allegations made against her.

You have landed in a controversy once again! What's wrong with the dress in your latest album that All India Government Nurses Federation has raised objection with Information Ministry and Censor Board?
There is nothing wrong with my dress at all. I am decently dressed for songs and albums like the one I have done. Unka deemag kharab ho gaya hai (They have gone crazy). It's not my problem. They should know that I can't do item songs in saris. I have said several times that I am an item girl and I dress according to the song and dance I perform.

But why have you worn a nurse's dress and that too a skimpy one?
It's complete rubbish. It's just a song in which I have been portrayed as a nurse and that too just for a little while. Hundreds of songs are there in which I can show you skirts smaller than what I have worn. Even in old hits you can see actresses like Helen and others wearing dresses more provocative than what I am wearing today.

Whatever you wear becomes controversial. What's the reason?
It's all unnecessary controversy. I am hot and sexy. Whatever I wear I look hot. Even if I wear a sari, people will still have a problem because I look hot in sari too. If I have worn a nurse's dress and I am looking sexy, I think I have done the right kind of role. Let people feel jealous about it. I don't care at all. Very soon they will realize what Rakhi Sawant is.

What if your videos get banned?
I don't force people to buy my videos. They like me and that's why they buy. I don't care. I will be more popular than ever.
