Rakhi wedged in a 'Mahasangram'
Controversies favourite baby Rakhi Sawant is once again caught in a contention. The incident happened on the sets of her Sony show, Comedy Ka Badsshah Haseega India where producer Vipul D Shah was busy canning the first episode of Mahasangram India - Pakistan Special.
Now the initiative which looked like increasing cultural harmony by bringing stand up comedians from two nations together on a common platform took a different turn when an Indian contestant walked out of the sets accusing Rakhi of a biased judgment.
Here are the details: Funnymen Albela from India and Sultan from Pakistan were the first two contestants pitted against each other in this episode. After the first round, Sultan scored higher then Albela. In the second round, Sultan completed his stand-up comedy and it was Albela's turn to present his gag. That's when Albela refused to perform accusing Rakhi of a being unfair claiming that she was more lenient towards Sultan because he hails from Pakistan. To which Rakhi retorted, "We have taken this decision from our hearts'. She was speaking on behalf of co-judges Raju Srivastav and Pakistani stand-up comedian Kasif.
Albela flared commenting that he was not like the Indian cricketers who would take defeat easily and that to him it means his career. Rakhi tried to pacify him saying, "Our (India's) USP is to be nice to people". But Albela had made up his mind and stormed off the sets. The producer had a tough time convincing the angry man to complete the episode and "it was quite a task", he sighs.
What we figure from all this hungama is that either the makers have woken up late and are celebrating a belated Fool's Day or it's simply a publicity peg as the production is going to air the entire drama as it is. What say?
