Rakhi Sawant, who has come back in the spotlight with her recent stint on Bigg Boss 14, has claimed that Javed Akhtar was once interested in making a biopic on her and had even called her to fix a meeting with the reality TV personality regarding the same. Rakhi, who was professionally inactive for a long time, took the audience by storm when she entered the Bigg Boss 14 house as a challenger. She also became one of the finalists on the show. Now, in an interview with India TV.com, Rakhi has claimed that Javed Akhtar had reached out to her to discuss a film based on her life.
“I got a call from Javed Akhtar Ji, before Covid, about a year ago. He said that he wanted to write my biopic and had asked to meet him. But after that day, I did not get to meet him. They want a biopic to be made on me, but my biopic will be very controversial and I do not know whether the people of the country would like to see it or not,” Rakhi told the portal.
When asked which actress could play her onscreen, Rakhi took Alia Bhatt’s name. She added, “I don’t know if they will cast me or cast Alia, or Priyanka Chopra. I love myself but if I don’t do it, then Alia can do or any best actresses like Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan can do as all are number one actresses and are my favourites.”
