"My family doesn't accept me, till today."
Rakhi Sawant has revealed that after several controversial moments, her mother told her that she wished she had died at birth.
She said that she is estranged from her family because of her decision to join the film industry.
Rakhi claimed that her family members, including her uncle, believe that she is a negative influence on them.
As a result, they refuse to speak to her and her mother.
Rakhi also claimed that when her father passed away, she was not invited to the funeral.
She said: “In our family, it was like Balika Vadhu.
“Running away from home and joining the film industry was my only option.
“Today, my father will be proud of me… Thank God I took this decision because I have become what I am today.
“My family doesn’t accept me, till today.
“They don’t talk to my mom.
“My uncle, my entire family. They think that because I ran away, their daughters will also run away.”
Rakhi went on to say that while she and her mother are close, at one point, her mother grew frustrated with her lifestyle.
She said that after an incident with Mika Singh, in which they were spotted kissing, her mother wished she had died.
Rakhi continued: “People always tell me I’m an attention seeker. Guys, I am not an attention seeker.
“The media loves me… There was a time when my mother told me, ‘What is this, your controversies? I wish you died the moment you were born’.
“This happened after my family turned on my mother, after my incident with Mika Singh.”
“My father used to beat my mom. I told her, ‘Nobody is going to give me a crown the moment I enter Bollywood, let me struggle, give me freedom. I am not Amitabh Bachchan or Anil Kapoor’s daughter. I haven’t even gone to high school’.”
Rakhi Sawant has been involved in numerous controversial moments.
During her appearance on Bigg Boss 14, she was slammed by host Salman Khan for her behaviour.
Rakhi had lashed out at the other contestants. She got into a dispute with Abhinav Shukla and Rubina Dilaik while she also fought with Nikki Tamboli over makeup and kitchen chores.
During a private conversation, Salman told Rakhi that he has always supported her but she crossed the line in the name of entertainment.
Despite Rakhi’s attempts to justify her actions, Salman refused to listen.
He even told her that she should quit the show if she could not control her behaviour.
But Rakhi remained on the show and reached the finale where she walked away with Rs. 14 Lakh (£13,500).
