Rakhi Sawant. (Devanagari: राखी सावंत, IPA: [raːkʰi] ITRANS is an Indian model and actress. She is a daughter of a Mumbai policeman. Her real name is Neeru Sawant and she is popular as an item girl and sex symbol. She is on the verge of increasing popularity.Rakhee started her career as a cabaret dancer. Hailing from a poor family, she has had only a few years of formal education. Her inability to speak fluent English has ensured that she could never fit into the class-conscious Bollywood industry. She is the sister of Rakesh who is currently making his directorial debut.
She is currently dating a guy called Abhishek, with she participates in Nach Baliye 3.
When Rakhi Sawant was in Bigg Boss's house, she apparently wanted her mother Jaya Sawant to move out of the flat they share. In the first week of March, Jaya shifted in with her son Rakesh at his MHADA flat.
Rakhi, who lived in Serenity Complex (Oshiwara) in a two-bedroom flat with her mother and boyfriend Abhishek Awasthi, has purchased a three-bedroom flat in the same complex where she will live with Abhishek.
Rakhi has attracted a great deal of attention by appearing on stage and screen in revealing (sometimes outrageous) outfits. In May 2006, she was booked for obscenity by the TN Police, after a stage show in the city. She was let off with a warning. A month later, she was again in the news when she filed a molestation case against pop singer Mika Mehndi, younger brother of Daler Mehndi, who kissed her forcibly at his birthday party, where she was a guest. She made waves in Bigg Boss, a Sony television show. After all the kiss-controversy, fights and police complaints, Mika had gone on to make a video teasing Rakhi
And with Rakhi in the Bigg Boss house, Mika had another chance to avenge her ā€” by sending around 25,000 SMSes to make sure she was evicted!
Mika when contacted, says unabashedly, “Yes, I did send SMSes to get Rakhi out of the house. In fact, my fans have been emailing me saying that they would send SMSes to evict her too. I think I must have sent close to 25,000 SMSes! Rakhi’s still not withdrawn her case.
In Bigg Boss she made comments against me. She also said that she wants to make a video about me. To make the video, she will need the prize money. The best way to stop her is to make her lose the contest.”
She was regularly ridiculed on the show Koffee With Karan but recently appeared in an episode of the show. She has apparently got rid of her silicone implants for the upcoming dance show Nach Baliye 3. .
As part of a Lions Club campaign, Rakhi was the celebrity guest at a function in Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail. She was to distribute blankets, computers and glucometers to the inmates but the jail authorities pulled out the rulebook and said that she cannot enter the jail premises. The authorities reasoned that they would not be able to control the inmates if she was allowed in. This made Rakhi upset as she claimed that she had the necessary permission to go enter the jail. But her plea fell on deaf ears and Rakhi's request was turned down. “This is really ridiculous. If big stars like Madhuri Dixit want to come here, they are welcomed. But if Rakhi Sawant tries to do the same, she is not allowed¯, a furious Rakhi exclaimed.
Apart from her appearance on the silver screen, has also appeared in a number of music videos, most notably for the remix number Pardesiya. In 2006, she was a cast member of reality show Bigg Boss, the Indian version of Big Brother. She was voted off the show by fellow cast members after a month, but has been brought back and was one of the final 4 participants.
