ITEM GIRL Rakhi Sawant, who likes to court controversies, wishes to be what she is and what she does. Apparently overconfident of her popularity Rakhi denied having any desire to be cast in goody roles and said she rather loves ‘meaty’ characters.
Rakhi was in the City on Thursday to promote Sony’s reality show Bigg Boss, after being ousted from the show recently. Speaking of herself as a straightforward person, Rakhi said that some day Indian women would identify with her as the modern day diva.
On being asked about her attempts to woo fellow celebrity Amit on Bigg Boss, Rakhi accepted that it was due to loneliness that she resorted to attract Amit’s attention.
Rakhi also voted in favour of the Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai kiss in Dhoom:2 and said that the government must not take any legal action against the movie. However, she cleverly denied making any comments over her much talked about episode with pop singer Mika. After getting linked to at least a dozen men for several reasons, Rakhi said she has now found the
love of her life in Abhishek Awasthi.
Rakhi said that she was aware of protests by Bajrang Dal and saffron outfits against her shows but still she would like to come here for live shows. “I am comfortable with my dresses and skin shows. I believe it is an individual’s right to live life on his/her own terms even if it means attracting opposition from every corner”, clarified Rakhi. And a parting word from Rakhi for the Bajrangis, “I love them.”
