Rakhi Sawant is no stranger when it comes to either controversies or better still, calling a spade a spade. On one hand, Rakhi is all over the telly land with her new show ‘Rakhi Ka Insaaf’ on a leading channel, on the other hand, this ‘item-bomb’ has now done her bit for the animals. She has stripped down to tiger stripes for a new anti-circus ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The said ad shows Rakhi wielding a whip as two men cower before her, and the caption reads, ‘Beaten. Tortured. Scared. Exotic Animals Belong in the Wild, Not in the Circus’. Sources close to Bollywood Hungama said that, through this ad, both, Rakhi as well as PETA want to appeal to everyone to make them aware that animals in circuses are subjected to chronic confinement, physical abuse and psychological torment. Even the animal’s access to water, food and veterinary care is often severely restricted. Hence, one needs to do their bit towards the safety of these animals.
Rakhi Sawant was transformed into a ‘Tigress’ by the body paint expert Al Alva, and the ad was shot by photographer Colston Julian.
