Rakhi Sawant has claimed that she rejected a film with Hollywood star Russel Crowe because she is uncomfortable making love on screen.
“Mujhe do offers aaye thay (I had received two offers), but just because of my broken English, and the bed scenes and smooch scenes involved, I have refused the movies,” says Rakhi, and adds, “They wanted me to do sex scenes. Gladiator ke hero Russell Crowe ke saath movie thi (It was a movie with the ‘Gladiator’ hero Russel Crowe). They wanted me to wear a two-piece, but I was not comfortable with it. I am even okay doing a pole dance, but not smooching scenes.” If you find that hard to believe, here’s something more believable: Rakhi will play a sex teacher Delnaz Doodhwala in Ashfaque Makrani’s Qasam Se Qasam. Apart from the obvious pun in her character’s name, isn’t that a tad contradictory? “It’s a message that I am giving to the kids. It is also important to tell them about safety. That is my message through the movie,” says Rakhi while gloating about the budget of the move – Rs. 22 crore.
Looks like Rakhi is inspired by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was often rumoured to be “in talks” for the role of the next Bond girl or some other big international project. But Rakhi definitely needs polishing in that department.
