2013-12-07 08:40:05 - Devotional singer Lata Pardesi has a different take on the upcoming film 'Jackpot' - directed by Kaizad Gustad. The censor board has banned a song in the film that features Sunny Leone.
"For whom is it a Jackpot? Artist woh hota ha jo apni kala se tan nahi man jeet le. (An artist is someone who through his/her talent can win others' heart). What will they achieve with showing off their body, better to show one's heart of compassion, only then will they strike a jackpot."
Lata Pardesi is a noted sufi singer and daughter of the renowned singer Shri Jeetpal Pardesi. She believes that Sai can be sought with a pure heart dedicated to helping others. Commenting on the likes of Sunny Leone, Poonam Pandey and Silk Smitha (whose birthday was a few days ago), she says, "If you chase only money and fame, it is certain that life will be
miserable, let alone death. Silk too died a tragic death. All these girls have talent but they do not believe in themselves or the fact that they have divine power in them. Sai is in everyone. I hope they wake up to the Sai in them and then they will never have to resort to such tactics."
She further stated, "If one really wants to strike a Jackpot, then rather than a cheap song it's better to have one that gives hope to people. Izzat kamane se hi jackpot lagta hai, Izzat gavaane se nahin (You strike Jackpot by earning respect not by losing it)."
