Rakhi Sawant’s Explosive Interview, “I’m Proud To Be Called ‘Item Girl’ Who Turn Saviours When Heroines Can’t Perform”
Rakhi Sawant was last seen in Bigg Boss 14 as a challenger and she is currently enjoying all the fame and love she is getting after doing the reality show. Rakhi started her career in Bollywood as an actor but it didn’t work out for her. However, she rose to fame when she started doing item songs ( also called item mumber) in some popular movies. There are times when many female actresses who featured in various item songs, expressed their disappointment over the term as they were being called ‘item girls’. However, Rakhi Sawant doesn’t feel the same as she stated that item girls should be called ‘item bombs’.
In an interview with Spotboye.com, Rakhi Sawant said, “Definitely ‘item girl’ ko item girl nahi bualana chahiye ‘item bomb’ bulana chahiye. Because it is a special song. Aur ye naam hamne nahi rakha hai, logon ne hi hame diya hai. When the heroine of the film can’t impress the audience with her performance, such item numbers come as a saviour for the film. I feel these songs are really important and I love to do ‘item songs’. In fact, I feel proud of being called an ‘item girl’. I came here to become a heroine but that didn’t happen and I became an ‘item girl’ which has helped me till here.”
The Main Hoon Na actress went on saying, “By doing item numbers, I was able to take care of my entire family.”
Meanwhile, Rakhi Sawant will soon be going to play a Tawaif in one of her upcoming web series.
