She has all the time appeared like a perfect slot in the Bigg Boss home, a spot the place sanity is the final thing anticipated from contestants to make a mark.
There is a technique to the insanity, although. If Rakhi looks like she was made for the Bigg Boss insanity, she most likely ready for this stage over the many years via a really eventful life that she has lead.
She began out as a dancer flaunting sultry strikes in a string of music movies, and by the early 2000s, was counted amongst Bollywood’s most wished merchandise stars.

She realised opening up about private life in public led to prompt drama and grabbed eyeballs. Being outrageous allow you to keep in the limelight, regardless of whether or not the cause was proper or incorrect. By the time she entered Bigg Boss season one in 2006, she was already courting a weird model of stardom — she was a star with out a starry Bollywood presence.
When her antics received her an invitation on Koffee With Karan, she was a pure sizzler in the limelight the standard present offered.
Over the years, she has been a darling of the media because of her quotes (“Jo bhagvan nahin deta, who doctor deta hai,” she as soon as famously quipped about getting beauty surgical procedure).

Years later, she would allege Tanushree Dutta had raped her at a “rave party”.
Some of her weird statements embrace the one the place she demanded to “ban ceiling fans to stop suicides” and the one the place she stated she is a virgin.
With Rakhi Sawant, sensationalism by no means runs out. Her behaviour on Bigg Boss naturally seems like she was born for the present.
Over the previous decade and half, she has added color on each sort of actuality tv — from dance to comedy. The huge bang, in fact, needs to be Rakhi Ka Swayamwar, the ‘actuality wedding ceremony present’ the place she was alleged to go groom looking.

To prime all of it, she really went on report to declare that she had pretended to decide on an appropriate boy for herself simply to make some cash.
If she has no qualms dwelling her private life out in the open, she additionally has no qualms “creating” a story of non-public life, as the wedding ceremony present underlined. Hardly anybody would have forgotten the occasion when she slapped onetime boyfriend Abhishek Awasthi in entrance of media.
Over the years, there was a whole lot of Rakhi Sawant Reality TV — The Rakhi Sawant Showz, Pati, Patni Aur Woh, Rakhi Ka Insaaf, apart from, in fact, the Swayamwar gimmick.
Put collectively, these would appear like a coaching floor, for the uninhibited avatar that she right now shows on Bigg Boss 14.
Along with throwing open her private life for public consumption, Rakhi additionally is aware of learn how to seize consideration with absurd claims — about all the things from getting botox and breast implants, to her experiences with the casting sofa. Be it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, right now or Shah Rukh Khan in the previous, she additionally all the time is aware of the proper vital particular person to continually gush about.
She is a dancer. She is an imperfect heroine. She is a laughing inventory. There are many avatars of Rakhi. She can be a one-time politician — correction, onetime wannabe politician (bear in mind she launched a celebration referred to as Rashtriya Aam Party after which joined Republican Party of India (A)?).
All of the above can solely be summed up in a line, each time she is available in the public eye, the viewers anticipates the unpredictable to happen. Normally, she by no means lets them down.
When she entered Bigg Boss 14, she initially added laughter to the present along with her jokes and wit. Gradually, nevertheless, she has opted for a distinct avatar. She is these days extra in the information for her fights with Nikki Tamboli and Manu Punjabi.
As the present continues, let’s examine what different variations of Rakhi one get to witness. It needs to be enjoyable to sit up for.
