Censor Board sucks, Rakhi Sawant to appeal to Anna

“When Rakhi Sawant is angry, not many in the country can have the guts to stop her! The latest to face the ire of Bollywood's biggest firecracker, is none other than the Censor Board, for having bleeped out the words 'Choos Le' (suck) from her song 'Jawani Ki Bank Loot Le' in her upcoming film Loot,” says The Times of India.

“But since the Censor Board is in no mood to listen, Rakhi has decided to march straight up to India's most famous anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare with her plea. Confirming this, her publicist Dale Bhagwagar says, "It is true that Rakhi has decided to approach Anna Hazare. She is currently doing her research on songs which she considers vulgar and objectionable."He adds, "She plans to carry their videos and CD's to Mr Hazare's village Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar. Rakhi wants Mr Hazare to judge for himself, whether her song 'Jawani Ki Bank Loot Le' is vulgar compared to the others passed by the Censor Board.", the article continues.

That should be an interesting experience for many – for Anna Hazare, for Rakhi Sawant, and for the citizens of Ralegan Siddhi.

Rakhi Sawant is appealing to an unlikely saviour. “Film songs and movies are not allowed (in Ralegan Siddhi). Only religious films, like Sant Tuka Ram, Sant Gyaneshwar can be screened. Only religious songs are allowed on loudspeakers at the time of marriages. Says Kailash Pote: ‘Last year a villager, who is a Mahar by caste and a driver by profession, got a dish antenna installed in his house and started watching cable. Anna scolded him severely and he had to apologise,” wrote Mukul Sharma in kafila.org.

One would presume, from the fact that Anna Hazare has made these rules, that he has not watched commercial films, so he is also unlikely to understand the references that Sawant makes while castigating the Censor Board.

But wait, this is Rakhi Sawant – she knows all that. She’s already milking the attention that  the Gandhian is guaranteed today as she promotes her new song. The Times of India has written about it, and we’re writing about it, aren’t we?

Perhaps Mum Bhai would have been more involving if the suspense had been sustained, the screenplay not dipped in and out of past and present, and the writing committed itself to a modicum of heart.
