She is called the Queen of Entertainment. For years, she has been entertaining us with her work, and this time we were in for a treat when we first got to know that she is going to be one of the challengers on Bigg Boss 14.
However, Rakhi Sawant is ending up being in news only for the wrong reasons this time but what went wrong? Well, if we talk about her journey on Bigg Boss 14, let's be honest, she hasn't been doing things the way we were expecting it to be.
Though initially, Rakhi Sawant kept us hooked with her entertainment, slowly, we saw it all fading and witnessing a very different side of the actress.
Last year, she broke the news of her secret marriage, sharing her cropped pictures from the wedding ceremony. However, about an year later, none of us has seen her husband Ritesh. After her entry to Bigg Boss, a lot of reports around him entering the Bigg Boss house started doing rounds. The show will see its grand finale in a few days and there is still no update if this news is true.
Rakhi Sawant's Cheap Antics
Initially, Rakhi Sawant's flirting with Abinav Shukla were quite entertaining. However, there have been times when Rakhi Sawant crossed the line. Remember how she wrote Abhinav Shukla's name all over her body? It left the entire Bigg Boss house disgusted. Rubina Dilaik even called it 'cheap entertainment'.

It all reached another level when she pulled the drawstring of Abhinav Shukla's shorts. Rubina Dilaik instantly asked her to stay in her limits. Rakhi Sawant refused to understand and replied, "Aapke husband aapke ghar pe honge, humare yaha to contestant hain." She further said, "Who are you to tell me my limits, you can not stop me baby. I am in love with Abhinav. Jisko jalna hai jale."
Rubina Dilaik's younger sister, Jyotika Dilaik also slammed Rakhi Sawant for it. She said, "Rakhi Sawant thinks that it is very casual to pull at someone’s trousers and it is entertaining for her. But every person is different and what feels normal to one person, may not feel like that to someone else. Some people might think this is entertaining while some may feel the exact opposite. From the kind of background that we come from, it is a big deal to pull someone’s trouser or pant strings. It is someone’s personal space and one shouldn’t cross that line. According to me, Rakhi shouldn’t have pulled Abhinav jiju’s pant strings. That was not in good taste. Everyone has a different definition of entertainment, but this doesn’t look good and I’m sure the audience feels the same."
Celebrities Slam Rakhi Sawant's Behaviour
Ex-Bigg Boss contestant, Rahul Mahajan also took to his Instagram handle and posted a picture of himself with the caption, "I am watching you #rakhisawant 👿👿👿What you are trying to do with my bro #abhinavshukla #biggboss14 #bb14 @vootselect @colorstv @ashukla09 @rakhisawant2511."
While he was inside the Bigg Boss house, he called Rakhi Sawant a cheap celebrity and when later asked about the same in an interview, he said, "I still stick to my words. During my fight with Rakhi where I called her a cheap celebrity, all I was asking her was to hear my side, but she refused to. Instead, she started showing me her a**. She was thinking that when she will do such things, the audience will get happy and there are people who like such behaviour. I would like to tell people, if you watch such acts for 10 minutes you might enjoy it but just try to live with Rakhi for 10 days, you won't be able to tolerate her. The audience might enjoy seeing it on camera but we were staying with her under one roof daily and we were not enjoying it. I don't think even the production people, or camera guys of Bigg Boss would be enjoying it. There have been so many fake babas in our country who have been culprits. I feel if they were culprits their followers were culprits to another level. Similarly, if followers don't support a cheap level, celebrities would not be able to do cheap acts. I know I got a lot of hate on social media for this. But I feel ye desh ka durbhagya hai... This shows we are desperate for cheap comedy acts. If we have to sit and analyse what we want."
So sad to see #AbhinavSukla and #RubinaDilaik getting badly cornered in today’s episode. The guy clear looks traumatised with Rakhi’s behaviour and words. Still Rakhi was left with a little scolding and that’s it. Not everything is entertainment. There’s a thin line #BiggBoss14— Munmun Dutta (@moonstar4u) January 30, 2021
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actress Munmun Dutta also slammed Rakhi Sawant's behaviour towards Abhinav Shukla. She tweeted, "So irritating to see Vikas Gupta and Rahul defending Rakhi’s behaviour. The verbal diarrhoea of Rakhi to Abhinav shown in the episodes is nothing short of harassment. My respect to #RubiNav for keeping their cool. The guy is clearly uncomfortable and traumatised #BigBoss14."

Writer Gautam Hegde slammed host Salman Khan for being biased during the last Weekend Ka Vaar episode. In his long post on Instagram, he wrote that Salman Khan was unfairly lenient towards Rakhi Sawant.
Bigg Boss 13 contestant Shefali Jariwala during an interview shared that she is disgusted by her behaviour. She said, "This week thumbs down to Rakhi Sawant and the makers of Bigg Boss 14 for encouraging her. I expected that Rakhi would be bashed during the Weekend Ka Vaar, for the way she has behaved this week. Initially, she entertained with her love story but suddenly her love has gone to an obsession level and I am not enjoying it."
She added, "Rakhi Sawant was entertaining for two weeks, but when she passed nasty comments, pulled the strings of Abhinav's shorts, she became irritating for me. People might find her entertaining but for me she has crossed her limits. I don't know why she is not being given the reality check. Is this for TRP? I think Rakhi had the box full of antics and they have got over so now she will continue to irritate the housemates. Her antics have become obnoxious and it is no more entertaining. She turned torture from entertaining."
