Rakhi Sawant has spoken up about her cosmetic surgery and asked why she was blamed for it even though people from Miss Universe to housewives undergo plastic surgeries.
In 2007, Rakhi Sawant discussed her plastic surgery in an episode of Koffee with Karan. In a new interview, Rakhi told that she was just a ‘kid’ back then and did not know much better.
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Rakhi told in Hindi that “I was punished for telling the truth. I told the truth and people started calling me plastic. I am not plastic. You didn’t know my problems back then. I was a kid. I had run away from home. If I didn’t take life into my own hands, my parents would have got me married off. At that young age, I took the decision to put something in my body”.
“I have gone through that pain. People have kidney implants, lung implants. At that time I also did an implant, I don’t even want to repeat it. All just to look glamorous, to look different, to get work. People don’t understand, to become Miss Universe or Miss World, girls do lots of plastic surgery, but why do people only blame me? Nowadays, housewives, and the whole world, do plastic surgeries to impress their husbands. Celebrities do it to look good. Why am I the only one to be called ‘plastic’?”, she added.
In the episode of Koffee with Karan, Rakhi had said that “Jo cheezein God nahi deta, woh doctor dete hain (What God couldn’t give me, doctors did)!”.
Rakhi Sawant made a comeback after her appearance on Bigg Boss 14. She completed the reality show as a finalist.
