Mumbai, Oct 27 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Upset with the Censor Board for bleeping out the words ‘Choos Le’ (suck) from her song “Jawani Ki Bank Loot Le” in her upcoming film Loot, firecracker Rakhi Sawant is in attack mode this Diwali.
The lyrics of the song read, “Main russ malaai hoon, jannat se aayee hoon, saamne parosi hoon, aake choos le… hey… saiyaan jawani ki bank loot le.”
Rakhi insists that though the words could be controversial in nature when singled out, in her song they have been used aptly and with the right connotations, without any vulgar or offensive meaning.
The actress feels that the Censor Board is “biased”. “If they are so strict, why have they passed a song titled “Jhak Maar Ke” picturised on John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in Desi Boyz,” Rakhi shoots.
“If ‘Choos Le’ can be considered offensive, even ‘Jhak Maar Ke’ is a vulgar phrase. But the censors have allowed it to pass because the film has big stars in it,” she claims. “Even John’s dance steps in the song are in bad taste. He’s making distasteful gestures with his hand. I have no such gestures in my song,” she adds.
