Mumbai. While everyone thought that item girl Rakhi Sawant would have another season of her marriage on Imagine TV, she has surprised everyone by announcing her new show called Rakhi Ka Insaaf on the same channel, where she would play a judge and announce verdicts in cases dealing with domestic violence, dowry abuse, marital infidelity, filial impiety, etc.

Even though the show is still to go on-air, Imagine TV, earlier NDTV Imagine, is so upbeat that it has announced its fourth reality show involving Rakhi Sawant – Rakhi Ka Ilaaj… Dil Se.

“No, sorry to disappoint you, even though the name suggests so, the show will not diagnose or treat Rakhi for any malady, physical or psychological. In fact, Rakhi would now play a doctor and treat patients suffering from acute diseases.” Imagine TV CEO Tony Bhalla informed in a press conference.

Mr. Bhalla further informed that his channel had originally planned to get the show endorsed by IMA (Indian Medical Association), but the plans were thrown in a limbo after the ethics committee of MCI (Medical Council of India) issued a show-cause notice to IMA for endorsing random stuffs.

“We are not that concerned with this development, but we would prefer to get a medical organization on board to give the ‘reality’ angle to the show. We might partner with Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri, who is soon going to launch a medical institute that will dare to think beyond AIIMS.” revealed Mr. Bhalla.

But the central character of the show Rakhi Sawant is hardly concerned with these minor hiccups. She even rejected criticisms that she shouldn’t be dabbling in such affairs as she lacked professional training for the same.

“So what if I don’t have an MBBS degree? I am not going to prescribe any medicines to anyone. But whatever I will prescribe, I will prescribe dil se (through heart).” said Rakhi Sawant, who attended the press conference wearing a nurse’s dress.

Rakhi also claimed that her series of reality shows won’t end with this and she would keep on coming with innovative ideas for the betterment of the society. It should be noted that she had earlier played a dancer (Nach Baliye), a housemate (Big Boss), a victim (Mika Ki Pappi), a bride (Rakhi Ka Swayamvar), and a mother (Pati, Patni, aur Woh) on television, and is now ready to play a judge and a doctor.

“What next? Why doesn’t she play a temple or church in some goddamn show called Rakhi Ka Ghanta?” asked Jatin angrily, a Rakhi-ravaged television viewer.
