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 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.
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.
She has participated in reality television shows Bigg Boss and Nach Baliye 3 and was popular among viewers, but did not manage to win. She has alleged cheating in her not winning the Nach Baliye 3 show, but the organisers have denied the allegation. Despite being in industry for almost 10 years Rakhi is not known for any memorable role or achievement but only for controversies earning her a notoriety of being cheap and vulgar
