Controversial queen Rakhi Sawant does not leave an opportunity to make headlines with her controversial and tongue-in-cheek comments and actions.
Once again the lady made an explosive revelation in a leading publication on the reality behind her reality show “Rakhi Ka Swayamvar”, marriage and finding the right groom
Few years back, Rakhi had her Swayamvar organised on National television. By the end of the show, Rakhi got engaged to NRI Elesh Parujanwala, whom she chose as her to-be husband. Few months after that, she broke off her engagement with him and moved on in her life.
Talking about the same to an entertainment portal, Rakhi was quoted as saying, “I got engaged to Elesh for money, I wanted to buy a flat. Why should I lie? I didn’t want to marry someone only to divorce him later. I am not dating anyone. Also, I am not getting good prospects because of my image created by the media. I don’t want to marry a young guy or a struggler. I am looking for a mature and affluent man, who can take care of me and my needs.”
The decision to pursue politics, she says, was a mistake. “Joining politics was a wrong move. Also, I shouldn’t have quit TV; whatever I am today is because of it and my item numbers. I was a princess here, but I left it for a field where I wasn’t respected. I can’t play politics,” elaborates Rakhi, who will soon be seen in an episode of ‘Savdhaan India’, where she’ll play a negative bahu, who gets married to a 16-year-old boy.
Does her image stop people from approaching her for serious roles? Pat comes her characteristically blunt reply, “Sirf sari pehenne se bahu nahi bante! I don’t have an ego and don’t mind approaching people for work. I just want to do good work.”
