If there’s one person who knows how to stay in the limelight, irrespective of how its done, its none other than controversy queen Rakhi Sawant. But since her antics are far too many to encompass in a single report, this one’s just about her most recent gimmick.

In the past, Rakhi has been fairly vocal about supporting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. So much so, that when she was questioned about Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch’s suicide, she asked the neighbouring nation’s PM to take a leaf out of Mr Modi’s book and learn something from him.

While being vocal about supporting one’s PM isn’t something most people would typically object to, pasting his face ‘strategically’ on a dress, might just be enough to tick them off.

During a pre-Independence Day event organised for Indians in the US, Rakhi turned up wearing a little black dress with PM Modi’s faces plastered across it. Unfortunately, it’s one of those cases where it looks worse than it sounds, as the faces are strategically positioned across her rear and chest area, among others.

Post the event, the actress shared a few pictures of herself wearing the dress on her Instagram account. And due to the controversial nature of the pictures, they’ve gone viral on social media since then.

While most have criticized the actress for insulting a national figure or pulling off a ‘cheap publicity stunt’, some have even taken a dig at PM Modi by using the hashtag #MakeInIndia in their replies, given that the initiative might have influenced the creation in some way.

Overall, the reactions to Rakhi’s dress were ‘strong’ to say the least. Here’s a few of them:
