When Bigg Boss debuted in 2006, it gave viewers a platform to get to know their favorite or not-so-favorite personalities up close and personal. One of them was Rakhi Sawant. Subsequently, a naive rakhi made a great impression on the audience with his antics. The audience still remembers how he cried for Amit Sadh, claiming that he had fallen in love with her.
Cut to 2020, and seems as if things haven’t changed much since she is back on the reality show after 14 years. However his mode of entertainment has not changed.
Despite the passage of time, Rakhi’s mannerisms in Bigg Boss have not changed. However, there was a growing curiosity about her, especially about her marital status and husband Ritesh. The current version also fulfilled one of her wishes: to be one of the finalists.
With Bigg Boss 14 closing around the corner, here is a return to Rakhi’s journey in Bigg Boss 14 and her stand-out moments.
A love-hate relationship with Abhinav Shukla
Talking about Rakhi in Bigg Boss 14 would be incomplete without mentioning her equation with Abhinav Shukla. As she entered the house, Rakhi developed a unique relationship with Abhinav and his wife Rubina Dilac, often expressing that she saw her relationship reflected in her bond with husband Ritesh. Rakhi told Abhinav that she would flirt with him as a means of “entertaining” the audience and promised to stick to her limits. Their one-sided romance not only got a TRP for the show but also made it entertaining.
However, as time passed, things started to get worse. Rakhi, who missed no chance to express her admiration for Abhinav, later became enraged when she wrote her name on the entire body with lipstick. An irritated Abhinav starts ignoring her, but in vain. His statement of Abhinav’s embrace made his equation worse.
during a Bridesmaid of the weekend, Salman argued that Abhinav was being helped by his antics. When Rakhi and Abhinav’s equation is exhausted, it naturally affects her bond with Rubina. While Rakhi felt that Rubina never supported her, she later said that she felt Rakhi insulted her and Abhinav’s feelings.
When Salman made Rakhi’s bed
Rakhi’s entry in Bigg Boss 14 did not like the contestants. Her reactions were different – Nikki Tamboli accused her of being untoward with Jasmine Bhasin. Despite Salman Khan’s request, Nikki refused to make Rakhi’s bed, which eventually led to the actor entering the house to make Rakhi’s bed and teaching Nikki a lesson.
Rakhi and Jasmine fight
Rakhi was involved in a heated debate with almost everyone at home. But apart from the innovative episode, her fight with Jasmine is something to remember. After an argument, an irritated Jasmine tried to put a mask on Rakhi’s head, which later caused her to cry in pain. While Jasmine argues that she had no intention of getting hurt and Rakhi is only making a scene, Salman Khan revealed that Rakhi was injured and was given some painkillers. He said that she refused to leave the house because ‘she wants to win’.
Rakhi revealed about her husband Ritesh
There were always speculations about Rakhi’s marriage. Even in Bigg Boss house, people were confused about his marital status and often jokingly said that Ritesh does not exist. However, in one episode, viewers saw Rakhi breaking up in a conversation with Rahul Vaidya. She reveals that she was unaware of Ritesh and was already married to someone else. Later, Rakhi and Rahul were called to the confession room and advised not to share such personal information on national television.
Rakhi’s video-chat with her mother
During the family special episode, Rakhi, who wishes to see Ritesh, talks to her mother via video call. Her mother, who is undergoing treatment for cancer in a hospital, said that she is proud of Rakhi. He told the family that Rakhi is not false.
The conversation between Rakhi and her mother brought tears to the audience and family.
When Julie sent a chill down the spine
Rakhi’s last resort to entertainment was her makeup-character Julie, who would come to the fore whenever troubled. The first time Rakhi pretended to be Julie, she was a soul who has been in Bigg Boss house for 200 years. She started frightening everyone including the family. But Julie became famous and became an important point of Bigg Boss’s journey.
‘Was it man, Sandini?’
Well, just the video is enough to explain the moment that made Rakhi viral on social media for all the good reasons, thanks to Yash Mukte.
Rakhi finally made it to the finals!
To make a place in the finale, the task requires contestants to deduct a certain amount of checks, which will have been deducted from the winner’s amount. For Rakhi, it was the only sure shot way to get into the finale. While Rahul and Ellie tried to convince Rakhi by hook or crook, the actor did the needy. She cut the check and became the second finalist after Nikki. She fulfilled her dream of becoming a finalist.
All in all, Rakhi’s journey to Bigg Boss 14 was a vortex of emotions, game planning and excitement to win. She made sure to make the right moves, which not only led her to the finale, but also won her heart.
In addition to Rakhi, Finale will feature Rubina, Ellie and Rahul competing for the Bigg Boss 14. winner trophy. The finale will air on Colors TV on 21 February.
