Delhi: HAVING an interest in Rakhi Sawant is a form of insanity, psychiatrists have confirmed. A meeting of the AIMMS ‘s psychiatrists concluded that anyone actively keeping abreast of the troubled actress is mentally ill, dubbing the condition Sawant Syndrome or “Sawantam” for short.
They noted 313 cases where fans of trivia about the actress – wandered into traffic or stepped off buildings in a strangely calm, trance-like state. Psychiatrist Rakesh Sunder said: “An interest in Rakhi Sawantwas previously seen as a harmless means of vicariously sharing in the ups and downs of her life. “But over time it creates a sense that the world is a place of such frightening emptiness that sufferers decide to jump off a building just to feel something.” He said: “Drona was a sassy movie with a brain and a great cast including Abhishek Bachchan . However I know of a case in which a Rakhi Sawant fan watched Drona three times in a row and suffered a fatal brain aneurysm. Rakhi Sawant fans reacted angrily, claiming their lives were not screwed beyond repair. Psychiatrists now hope to identify the brain disorder that causes fascination with Rakhi Sawant.
