While speculation was rife that Mallika Sherawat will essay the role of the controversial 'godwoman' Radhe Maa in an upcoming film, thanks to producer Ranjeet Sharma telling  Zoom,that he had approached the actress for the title role in a film on the 'Godwoman', she has refuted them as rumors.

The actress, not new to controversy, has strongly denied playing the role of Radhe Maa on Twitter. "NOT TRUE !! Pls don't spread false stories without checking facts!!," she wrote in reply to several tweets asking her if she will be taking up the role.

She went on to say that may be the reason behind all the rumors was her fame as her name made news and people wanted to take advantage of that.

According to the Zoom,, she had verbally agreed to be a part of the film and was waiting for a one-liner explanation about the movie from the producer to make it official. The name of the film has also been registered, as Mortal Radhe Maa.

Radhee Maa, who her devotees believe is an incarnate of Goddess Durga, has been in the news recently after a 32-year-old Mumbai woman alleged her husband's family physically and mentally harassed her on Radhe Maa's orders.

A video clip of her dancing to Bollywood number in a red mini skirt has also been leaked online and has created quite a controversy. Recently, seven members of a family from Gujarat committed suicide allegedly after being instigated by her. They had donated all their family wealth to the 'Godwoman' and got nothing in return.
