Rakhi Sawant doesn’t look like your traditional mother and she certainly isn’t trying to showcase her maternal side in Bollywood, which makes it all the more surprising that she has taken on the task of bringing up a baby in her newest venture.
Sources are claiming that Rakhi hasn’t exactly taken to motherhood the way a duck takes to water. The item girl is reportedly having a tough time playing ‘mama’ to 10 month old Jay for her new NDTV reality show, Pati Patni Aur Woh.
So in short, Rakhi doesn’t want a ‘Pati’, has no real desire to be a ‘Patni’ and now the ‘Woh’ is giving her a headache too! Poor girl!
It seems the initial excitement of having a baby around to play dress up with has waned and Rakhi has suddenly been hit by the needs of a child, not easy when you are used to being the demanding one in any relationship.
In the house, whist Rakhi is happy enough to play with Jay, the messier tasks such as cleaning up and changing nappies seem to fall firmly on fiancé Elesh Parujanwala. A source says, “Rakhi is cursing the day she agreed to this. She weeps and worries about not getting any time to do her makeup.”
Rakhi has previously said that crying babies give her a headache and that she can’t imagine being without makeup, not a statement that boded well for the show. Not to worry though, Rakhi is compensating by applying makeup to the baby instead!
Actress Sambhavna Seth said, “Not that Rakhi looked good even with make-up, but now she’s realising what it takes. Bachche ko publicity ke liye mohra banana theek nahi”. Actor Raja Chaudhry says, “Rakhi is such a dramebaaz, that’s why she’s there.”
A spokesperson for NDTV denied the reports and the official line is that Rakhi is doing well with her ‘first child’.
