Is this a case of 'Grapes are Sour'?

Is this just a publicity stunt or was there really voting malpractice in Nach Baliye-3 finals? Star Plus spokesperson clears the issue on behalf of the Channel House..


The Third Season of Nach Baliye has ended, but the drama continues even now, after Rakhi Sawant lost the Finale to the more popular Jodi, Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda and staged a walkout after the result declaration. The issue did not end here, as Rakhi made an outburst before the media accusing the channel of having closed her voting lines 4 hours before the stipulated time of close. Rakhi left no stone unturned, and has also lodged a complaint with the Mumbai Police against the entertainment channel Star Plus alleging malpractice in the voting process.

Star Plus in turn has rejected the charges of malpractice and called the whole fiasco as nothing but just a publicity stunt by Rakhi. They even refused to comment on the police case filed as claimed by Rakhi.

Mr. Keertan, Executive Vice-President & General Manager, Star Plus says, “Currently we have not received any communication either from Rakhi or from Police. We feel this is just a publicity stunt by Rakhi just like all other publicity stunts. We would not like to comment until we receive a clear communication.” Mr. Keertan also cleared the allegation of the faulty voting system saying, “We have not done anything of the sort. She is alleging lot of things, throwing a lot of allegations in the air, but where is the evidence to prove any of these allegations? Tomorrow anybody in the street can charge anything on anybody. Without any evidence or proof, you just cannot speak out.”

Seeing the manner in which the controversial star, Rakhi has gone all out, the channel feels that this is more of a case of a sour looser. “See, till she made it to the finals and other couples were getting eliminated, everything was right. So what happened now? Essentially we would say it’s a simple case of Grapes are sour theory”, says Mr. Keertan.

Success and failure comes hand in hand in all walks of life. But the main challenge lies in the way we accept defeat.. What say, folks?

da_mom 12 years ago Tsk Tsk Rakhi, sour grapes doesnt quite cover what you are trying to pull. A media ploy to enhance her otherwise drab career seems more like it. Wouldnt be the first time a wannabe star has pulled a stunt like this.

She is getting the attention from the media and keeping her face in front of the camera..so if nothing else she has succeeded in that. She is the consumate actress as we all saw while watching NatchB3. Not a very good one but she did keep us entertained with a good laugh at her expense.

Truth be told, i really didnt think she was that good a dancer either. Abhisek was phenomenal however.

I say, ignore her and she will slink away back into the woodwork, or do us all a favour and retire.

The woman grates on my nerves..

sweetncute 12 years ago 'sita11' how many times are u gonna salute the super guts of rakhi-abhishek for taking a daring step of fighting for the supposedly injustice done to them???????

These people r contradicting their own statements...every single day rakhi comes up with some new allegations..first it was against the channel..then it was against AS...n now its against the bahu image..
this clearly indicates that TRUTH is far from her statements...
I guess she should think properly n come up with one best reason for the allegations..n stick to it.

She's really a sour loser..both of them infact--rakhi n abhishek...otherwise they wouldn't have dome all this drama..inturn they would have accpeted their defeat n taken their runners up trophy.
