Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant today sought anticipatory bail in a case of allegedly making objectionable remarks against sage Valmiki, who wrote the mythological Hindu epic Ramayana. Taking cognisance of the bail application, Additional Sessions Judge Dinesh Kumar ordered to summon the record of lower court for April 17.
Sawants lawyer Rajneesh Lakhanpal apprised the court that his client never spoke against sage Valmiki, adding that she has tendered an unconditional apology to the Valmiki fraternity.
Recently, Rakhi had called a press conference and defended herself. The actress during a show had drawn a comparison between Valmiki and singer Mika Singh regarding their behavioural transformation from evil to good. This invited a backlash from the Valmiki community.
This is not the first time she has created a headline for, Rakhi, often courted controversy with her outspoken nature. Recently she has also grabbed attention for her film Ek Kahani Julie Ki, as the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) gave the film a ‘U/A’ certificate but later changed it to ‘A’. Directed by Aziz Zee, Ek Kahani Julie Ki also featured Amit Mehra, Saniya Pannu and Jimmy Sharma among others.
