Talking about the same with ETimes, Rakhi mentioned that she is overwhelmed with the love she has received from the audience after Bigg Boss 14. She quoted saying, “I am just crying, I am overwhelmed and I am still not able to believe that I have got so much love again in my life. I have always been disregarded by people.”
The actress added, “People would make fun of me, they would pass comments on me, body shame, face shame me. They would make fun of my English and that I can’t speak English. Nobody knows how I’ve survived the difficult times. I was called ugly looking, fat, motormouth, gutter mouth. I have taken everything with a pinch of salt and forgiven everyone. I always focused on my work and finally I’ve got all the love.”
She further added, “I am unable to digest this love. Everything seems like a dream and when I step out, I get scared if all this love and admiration is true. I get nervous ‘ki ab kya comment aayega’… I am confident but I am nervous at the same time. The scenario has changed completely. I am still the same Rakhi Sawant but the love I am I am not able to trust. I feel it is a dream when kids, women, girls and boys say they like me, love me (starts crying).”
Rakhi further said, “In between when things were not working in my favour, nobody would follow me or click my pictures when I would step out of my gym. They would not take my video, or click my pictures but now wherever I go, photographers click my pictures. I have realised that now I have to handle myself carefully and speak thoughtfully because people love me, follow me.”
The actress thanked Bigg Boss 14 and host Salman Khan, she said, “I am getting good work thanks to Bigg Boss 14 and Salman Khan sir. Recently, I was in the lift and a 5-year-old girl recognised me and got excited to see me (she starts crying). My fans are sending me gifts, clothes and I am just loving this phase of life.”
