Bollywood actress - Rakhi Sawant
Rakhi Sawant is an Indian Bollywood actress.Her real name is Neeru Sawant and she is popular as an item girl.

Rakhi Sawant (name variously appearing as Raakhi Sawant, or Raakhi Savant or Rakhi Savant) was born to a Marathi Hindu family in Mumbai in 1970. Her father is an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) with the Mumbai Police. She has a brother, Rakesh and a sister, Jaya.

Apart from her appearance on the silver screen, Sawant has also appeared in a number of music videos, most notably for the remix number Pardesiya. In 2006, she was a cast member of reality show Bigg Boss, the Indian version of Big Brother. She was voted off the show by fellow cast members after a month, but has been brought back and was one of the final 4 participants.

Sawant has attracted a great deal of attention by appearing on stage and screen in what some consider 'revealing' outfits. While this might have increased her popularity, it has caused her to face flak from many quarters. In May 2006, she was booked for obscenity by the Kolhapur Police, after a stage show in the city. She was let off with a warning. A month later, she was again in the news when she filed a molestation case against pop singer Mika, younger brother of Daler Mehndi, who forcibly kissed her at his birthday party, where she was a guest. She is currently making waves in Big Boss, a Sony television show.
