Rakhi Sawant is one of the most controversial names in India's entertainment industry. The model-actor hogs more headlines due to her controversial statements than her work. Rakhi has appeared in Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Telugu and Tamil films. Though she began her acting career in 1997, she came to be known for acting with Zayed Khan in Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne and Main Hoon Na with Shah Rukh Khan and Sushmita Sen. Her other films include Masti, Buddha Mar Gaya and
Dil Bole Hadippa. But more than her acting, she has made a name for herself as an item girl, featuring special songs in movies like Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena and Krazzy 4 along with several music videos like "Pardesiya Remix". Rakhi was a part of the first season of Bigg Boss and grabbed enough eyeballs for the shocking revelations she made about her earlier life. She also took part in Nach Baliye 3 and Pati, Patni Aur Woh. Her show Rakhi Ka Swayamwar got high ratings too. Despite having no backing in the industry, Rakhi has managed to make a mark for herself, even if it is through her controversial statements. She was a solo guest on Koffee With Karan Season 2. She has been quite vocal about going under the knife. Rakhi said "Jo cheezein God nahi deta, woh doctor detein hain!" when host Karan Johar asked her about her plastic surgeries. Rakhi has expressed her adulation for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Yoga exponent Baba Ramdev too. She even formed her own political party called Rashtriya Aam Party and contested as an Independent Candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
