Item girl Rakhi Sawant claims she has been cheated in Bollywood and now wants to strengthen her foothold on the small screen.
"I don't want to work on the big screen anymore. I don't have the heart to work in Bollywood now... mere saath wahaan bahut cheating ho gayi (I have been cheated a lot there). I only want to work on television," Rakhi said.
Rakhi, who has done bit roles in films like Main Hoon Naa and Dil Bole Hadippa and item numbers such as Dekhta hai tu kya, has also done several reality shows like Nach Baliye, Rakhi Ka Swayamvar and Pati, Patni Aur Woh.
She says the end result of her role in Yash Raj Films' Dil Bole Hadippa was disappointing.
"I gave my six months to Dil Bole Hadippa. But when the film released, my entire role was chopped off. So then I said namaskar (goodbye) to the big screen. I am very happy with my television work. What I have got from TV, I have never got from the big screen. But if I get good offers from Bollywood, I will still consider them," she added.The actress, who will soon be seen on Imagine TV's new reality show Rakhi Ka Insaaf, is also open to item numbers.
"I would always do item numbers. I don't see any wrong in doing item numbers. Go to a discotheque and people are dancing for free, so why shouldn't I do it on screen. God has given me this talent and I love dancing," she said.
