“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 revealed that even her mother was not satisfied with the way she lived her life. She said that she is very close to her mother now but there was one point where she grew frustrated.
“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’.”
