Bigg Boss 14 contestant Rahul Mahajan had recently opened up about Rakhi Sawant's traumatic childhood. He had mentioned that Rakhi was being beaten up for dancing when she was a child. And now Rakhi has revealed she got multiple stitches after being thrashed by her uncle.
Speaking to Rahul Vaidya about growing up in a conversative family, Rakhi said, “We weren’t even allowed to stand in the balcony. Women of our house were not allowed to do eyebrows. We were not allowed to do any waxing or anything. I don’t understand what kind of men they were.”
She also showed her stictches inflicted by her uncle's beating. “See my stitches after my mama (uncle) beat me. He is not alive anymore,” Rakhi said. When Rahul asked her whether her mother would support her dad and uncle, Rakhi replied, "Ab ghar ki auraat ko bolna mana tha… allowed nahi tha. Now things have changed. Mere itne rishte aaye but sab chale gaye because I was a dancer.”
She broke down while saying, "Hum Bollywood me hote hai toh log judge karte hai that we are characterless. Bollywood me hona gunah hai? Dancer hona gunaah hai?” She further added, "I am glad shows like Namak Issk Ka are made. It portrays the hardship of what a dancer goes through.”
This came to light when Rahul Mahajan, whom Rakhi calls her friend, revealed that she used to get beaten up in her childhood for dancing. He also said that despite earning immense fame, Rakhi is totally lonely.
"Father nahi hai… father ne uske bachpan me maara hoga, peeta hoga (Her father must’ve been physically abusive towards her when she was a child). Childhood me usko bahut maarte the dance karne ke liye (They used to beat her for dancing). She has daulat, shouhrat but apne log nahi hai (She has fame and fortune, but no one to call her own). She feels she has a character to maintain. There is a clash between the real Rakhi and the Rakhi that is known to the world,” Rahul Mahajan said on Tuesday's episode while speaking about Rakhi to Sonali Phogat and Arshi Khan.
