MUMBAI - Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant says she met model Rinky alias Priyanshi Choudhury just days before her death that is being probed as a suspected suicide case.
“I’ve a message for young girls. Don’t get possessive about your boyfriends. Not worth it. I am so sad to know she killed herself. If I had handled her case (on her reality show ‘Raakhi Ka Insaaf’) this wouldn’t have happened. I had worked with Rinky in Priyadarshan’s ‘Malaamal Weekly’. She had done two-three films with Priyan sir. She was slim and so happy,” said Rakhi.
“I ran into her very recently at a parlour and was shocked at how much weight she had put on. I advised her to join a gym. And she did. If I only knew what she was going through, I’d have definitely helped her.”
The model was found hanging from the ceiling at her residence in Goregaon Oct 28, after allegedly receiving calls from her boyfriend Sahil Maliks ex-girlfriend.
Sahil was arrested two days later and is being interrogated.
“I am shocked to know that a girl as decent and warm as Rinky died for a man. Men are not worth killing yourself for. I’ve been through a broken relationships. Girls become over-possessive. Men don’t care beyond a point. ‘Ek gayi, doosri aayi’… This is the bitter truth of life…Ninety percent men are like that. As long as their wives don’t get to know, they are happy doing their own thing.
Rakhi was also in a series of bad relationships. First, she dated Abhishek Awasthi and later got engaged to Elesh Parujanwala on the reality show “Rakhi Ka Swayamwar”.
Talking abour her relationship, she said: My boyfriend too turned out to be a two-timer. I said bye to him. I didn’t kill myself. I forgave him. My marriage on television also turned out to be a fiasco. I got to know he was here for publicity, not marriage.
“I’ve no interest in dating boys any longer. I’ll directly move to marriage and set up my home, whenever it happens. I’ve one life and I want to live it well. Rather than waste my time chasing boys, I’d pursue god and do his work.
