Recently, Rakhi Sawant had opened up about going under the knife. She had revealed that she faced rejections and so, resorted to surgery to improve her physical appearance.
Rakhi, who was originally named Neeru Bheda, said, "My family never approved of me getting into the (entertainment) industry and would beat me up black and blue if they would ever find me dancing. When I finally reached Mumbai, I started dancing and showcasing my talent in front of many producers who would also see me in a bad light."
"I thought that I would rather dance at a dance bar than in front of such inconsiderate people. I faced innumerable rejections and resorted to surgery to improve my looks and appearance. I went into the surgery room as my former self Neeru Bheda but came out as a new and improved version of my own self - Rakhi Sawant," said Rakhi Sawant, who boasts huge popularity across the nation.
A few days ago, Rakhi ruffled feathers once again on social media. This time, by posing with the Pakistan flag. She shared a photograph of herself on Instagram, where she was seen dressed in a feather skirt with thigh-high slit paired with a halter neck and low-cut blouse, and adorns a Pakistan flag. With the picture, came a disclaimer from Rakhi: "I love my India but it is my character in the film 'Dhara 370'."
Rakhi Sawant clicked with actor Gurmeet Chaudhary, who was awarded for his contribution to the Bollywood film industry. Gurmeet took to Instagram to post his picture with the award and wrote: 'Most promising young talent of Bollywood' with Dada saheb phalke award reinstated my belief and my hard work in me !! thank you Dadasaheb Phalke. This is not an award it is a responsibility and I own it. Thanku god. I share this award with all my fans without ttheirconstant support I believe I wouldn’t be here. Gurfamily rocks
