All right! We accept it. This blog is crazy about Rakhi Sawant and can’t help but write about her inanities and overtures ( btw, who doesn’t? ;)).With her swayamver coming to a ceremonial end, and the rejected string of suitors, packing their bags and leaving (with their respective barats in toe), we really can’t wait to know whats up Rakhi’s bejeweled sleeve next.Apart from the humongous public response, her swayamver set a record of sorts. It has breached all previously set records of feigned affection (and other related plastic emotions) on national television, so much for the much –touted “reality” of it. The way a bunch of people came together and made up for the apparent absence of rakhi’s family was indeed laughable (personally I laughed my heart out at ram’s (the muhbola bhaiyya, who stood by Rakhi through all her stupidities and was an inspirational source for half of them) portrayal. What was even more amusing was the way well educated, phoren bred grooms queued up and jostled for space to court the elusive Rakhi, leave alone the bhangra and grooming sessions for the shutterbugs. How desperate could one get??
Jokes apart, Rakhi has given Indian television a new style of programming to play with. Who else could pull off a show like that? Rakhi has monopolized this style, which for a while will remain restricted to herself .The TRPs (which went through the roof on the D day) stand testimony to the fact that love or it loath it, we all watch it (yes intellectuals, pseudo intellectuals n wannabes included). N boi, does it sell !
