Rakhi Sawant’s family members did not allow her to attend her father’s funeral.
Rakhi Sawant is a true entertainer. Be it her hilarious social media posts or fun interaction with the paparazzi, Rakhi knows how to brighten a dull day with her presence. While she is one of the most popular entertainers, her journey to fame wasn’t easy.
In an interview with an entertainment portal, Rakhi revealed that running away from home to join the film industry was the only option she had with her. She further said that her family doesn’t accept her as they consider her to be a corruptive influence.
“In our family, it was like Balika Vadhu. Running away from home and joining the film industry was my only option. Today, my father will be proud of me… Thank God I took this decision, because I have become what I am today. My family doesn’t accept me, till today. They don’t talk to my mom. My uncle, my entire family. They think that because I ran away, their daughters will also run away,” Rakhi Sawant told.
Recalling her controversy with Mika Singh, Rakhi said her father would beat her mother. “People always tell me I’m an attention seeker. Guys, I am not an attention seeker. The media loves me… There was a time when my mother told me, ‘What is this, your controversies? I wish you died the moment you were born.’ This happened after my family turned on my mother, after my incident with Mika Singh. My father used to beat my mom. I told her, ‘Nobody is going to give me a crown the moment I enter Bollywood, let me struggle, give me freedom. I am not Amitabh Bachchan or Anil Kapoor’s daughter. I haven’t even gone to high school’,” Rakhi added.
Now, Rakhi is her mother’s biggest support. While her mother was in the hospital for cancer treatment, Rakhi participated in Bigg Boss once again in the 14th season to earn some money. On the finale night, Rakhi chose to quit the show by taking a briefcase with Rs. 14 lacs. She used the money for her mother’s treatment.
