Rakhi Sawant’s bail cancelled, fresh warrants issued

Actress-Rakhi-Sawant

Chandigarh, July 8: A court in Ludhiana on Friday cancelled the bail granted to controversial actress Rakhi Sawant and issued fresh warrants against her.

The bail for Rakhi was cancelled just a day after the court had granted it to her on Thursday. The court directed that she be presented before it on August 7.

The bail was granted on Thursday after Rakhi appeared before the court and surrendered a day before her hearing. She entered the court wearing a burqa to avoid being detected.

Rakhi is facing a case related to alleged objectionable remarks against sage Valmiki.

The court cancelled her bail and issued fresh warrants after Rakhi did not appear before it on Friday when the regular hearing of the matter was listed.

The court had earlier issued non-bailable warrants against her last month and directed police to ensure her presence in the court on July 7.

Court officials said that the actress had submitted an “unconditional apology” to the Valmiki community for her earlier remarks made on a TV show last year following which a complaint was filed against her with the Ludhiana police. Rakhi secured bail after furnishing two bonds of Rs one lakh each. She later left for Mumbai.

“I went to the court and I was tortured there very badly. A group of people even used abusive words. What was my mistake? I did nothing wrong. The court granted me bail, but now once again the warrant has been issued against me,” Rakhi said in a statement.

“I don’t want to go to Ludhiana. Why can’t they pass the case to Mumbai court. Where is women security? I never wanted to be in a burqa. But I have my own story, ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ and I really need help,” she added.

The court had issued non-bailable warrants against her in March this year and a Punjab Police team had gone to Mumbai to arrest her. However, it returned empty-handed as she was not found at her given address.

Riya Subodh

Mumbai, Dec 17: Riya Subodh, who hails from Ahmedabad, has been chosen as the winner of the third season of “Indias Next Top Model”.

Sabita Karki and Shweta Raj emerged as the first and second runners-up respectively.

With the theme of “Fashion gets tough”, this season not only transformed the lives of many young girls but also provided them with the confidence to own the world.

This season saw actress-model Malaika Arora as the host and head judge, actor Milind Soman joining photographer Dabboo Ratnani on the judging panel, and actress Anusha Dandekar and grooming expert Neeraj Gaba reprising their roles as mentors.

“‘India’s Next Top Model’ is a lifetime experience for me. I am saying this because from all the contestants, I was the only one who had no experience of the big fashion world in big cities like Mumbai,” Riya said in a statement.

“The biggest highlight for me was the photoshoot with Milind Sir and Malaika Ma’am. When I decided to take part in ‘India’s Next Top Model’, I knew that this show is going to change my life forever so when judges announced my name as the winner I had all the memories coming back.

“As I look back, I must say that this wouldn’t have been possible without my parent’s support, and a special thanks to the makers of the show who gave me the new identity of a model,” she added.

Before the ultimate battle of fashion, the show’s top three faces — Riya, Shweta and Sabita, got the chance to shoot for OPPO 2018 calendar.

After the photoshoot, Anusha and Gaba surprised the finalists by getting their family members and friends.

The season’s last photoshoot was a family portrait.

While Shweta and Riya’s family members were present for the shoot, Sabita’s parents couldn’t make it. Gaba and Anusha stepped in and posed with her as her family.

Singer Monica Dogra also performed live.

The episode was aired on MTV on Saturday.
