Rakhi Sawant says her marriage has become a big tragedy: ‘It’s been more than a year, my husband hasn’t come to India’
Rakhi Sawant, who will soon be seen on Bigg Boss 14, said “Frankly speaking I need the money and I need a second chance to come to Bollywood again. I want to win the trophy and I always wanted to win a show, but it has never happened in my career. This time I want to win Bigg Boss 14. The prize money of Bigg Boss is very huge Rs 50 lakh and I want to win the cash prize as I want money.”
Rakhi told,“I have not given up on life. I want to live my life and work. I’ve been into depression like many others. There are many who take a wrong step when they are into depression. They end their life, but I’ve never done this and will never do it. God has given me life and I feel it is very precious. I know money doesn’t stay forever, and I believe in my talent and I know I can rebuild everything because of my talent. The only drawback I feel I have in my career is education. People cheated me.”
In another interview to Spotboye, she said that she is bankrupt and is still shouldering the responsibility of her family. She said even her marriage has been a mistake. “You don’t know how much life has been rude to me. I made a mistake by getting married. I thought I will marry a rich person and come out of this struggle but my decision was wrong,” she added.
She had tied the knot with Ritesh around two years ago but there was hardly any proof other than her regular pictures and videos on Instagram which have shown her dressed as a bride and with sindoor.
She in an interview, “I know it’s high time and people, especially my fans, want to see him. They have been demanding it since I got married and as I am entering the Bigg Boss house, I want him to introduce himself to everyone. In fact, maine usse dhamki bhi di hai, ki ab usse sabke saamne aana hi hoga. What if Salman Sir asks to meet my husband?”
Rakhi has also revealed an unknown fact about her professional life. Citing the reason of her absence on the career front, she said, “Career down ho gaya, aur main zyada kuch kar nahi payi. Somebody cheated me and ruined my career. He took away all my money and then fled. This is how my time got wasted and I could not concentrate on my career. But now, things are better.”
In addition to this, Rakhi also said that she “got married under very difficult circumstances” and “could not announce” the wedding. She went on to call it a “love-cum- arranged marriage” with Ritesh who is said to be a UK-based businessman.
Rakhi also gave an example Amitabh Bachchan bouncing back in his second innings after going bankrupt. The Main Hoon Na actor stated, “A person like Mr Bachchan also went bankrupt and then he bounced back with his second innings and now I want to make use of this opportunity. I got name, fame, money everything with the first season of Bigg Boss and now with season 14, once again I want to make my life. I have this trust. I know one thing for sure ‘you love me, hate me but you can never ignore me’. I know I can’t impress everyone and I also know not everyone will understand my problems. But I want to say one thing that people who face it can only understand.”
She further shared, “People must be thinking why I am suddenly in need of money and I want to tell everyone that in my personal life I’ve been cheated by someone. I can’t get my money back as the person who cheated me has died, so I am helpless. That person took all my money, properties and everything has died. Now, I need the money that’s why I accepted the offer of doing this show. I want to win the trophy, I know it is not going to be easy. There will be a hardcore competition.”
Rakhi is one of the six challengers on Bigg Boss 14. She arrived on stage with a bang and told host Salman that she is there on the show to lend it a much-needed entertainment.
