Rakhi Sawant believes that Sunny Leone’s “sexy” songs incite men to act indecently with girls. Talking to the media at an event in Mumbai, the actress said that Sunny should be banned in India for the same reason.

Rakhi also added that Sunny should be allowed to work in India only when she is fully covered. Ok then!
