Bigg Boss 14 contestant Rakhi Sawant won over people’s hearts with her stint in the reality show. She left no stone unturned to entertain the viewers. A few days ago, Rakhi claimed that lyricist Javed Akhtar once told her that he wanted to make a biopic on her. Javed Akhtar later confirmed that this is true, and he did tell her that someday he would like to write a script based on her life. Now, in a recent interview, Rakhi Sawant revealed who she thinks can best play her role in the biopic.
Rakhi Sawant, while speaking to ETimes, said that she wants Alia Bhatt to play her role in the biopic, as Alia is bold, and not scared of anyone. Rakhi feels these are the qualities that the actress portraying her should have, and that Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Radhika Apte would also be fit to play the role. “I think there are two-three actresses who can do justice to my role. The first is Alia Bhatt, I think she is superb. She is bold and bindass and she is not scared of anyone. I think to play my role someone should have these characteristics,” she said.
She also said that Priyanka Chopra and Radhika Apte are also bold and have that spark to do her role in the biopic. “I have gone through a lot of ups and downs but I never let anything affect my reputation. I have crossed many lakshman rekha and I handled everything in my life with grace,” she said.
Meanwhile, Javed Akhtar, while speaking to Subhash K Jha for SpotboyE, revealed that Rakhi’s claims about him wanting to make a biopic on her life was true. “No, she is right. I think some four or five years back we were on the same flight and she told me about her childhood and I did tell her that someday I would like to write a script based on her life,” said Javed Akhtar.
