Rakhi Sawant observes ‘Karva Chauth’ for five menBy IANS

MUMBAI - Here is one more instance of Rakhi Sawant’s crazy stunts. Karva Chauth — a festival that celebrates wedded bliss — is a few months away, but the item girl has already observed the fast for not one but five men in the run up to her swayamvar.
Rakhi, who surprised many when she decided to marry through NDTV Imagine’s reality show Rakhi Ka Swayamvar, is busy selecting an ideal groom on the show. As part of that she observed a fast for five finalists to pray to god to help her make the right decision.
Not just that — even the contenders — Luv Khanna, Manas Katyal, Elesh Parujanwala, Chhitiz Jain and Manmohan Tiwari — decided to support her and observed the fast with Rakhi. If that wasn’t enough, each boy’s mother helped Rakhi and their sons in breaking the fast in a traditional way, a source close to the show told IANS.
Rakhi also bonded with four of her prospective mothers-in-law, when they went all the way to Udaipur’s Fateh Garh Palace, where the show is being shot. She even discussed recipes of some of her favourite dishes with one of them, said the source.
Toronto-based Parujanwala’s mother couldn’t be on the show as she is abroad, but all the other women spoke at length to Rakhi about the cultures and traditions followed in their families.
The mothers even took gifts for Rakhi.
Luvs mother gifted her a bangle and a Ganesha idol, while Manas mother cooked for her. Chhitizs mother brought her some childhood memories of her son and Manmohans mom presented her Ganga jal from their hometown Rishikesh.
The item girl-turned-actress made a handful of appearances in films like “Main Hoon Na” and also featured on Sony TV’s reality show “Big Boss”.
The show Rakhi Ka Swayamvar airs every Monday-Friday at 9 p.m. on NDTV Imagine. It is supposed to culminate in Rakhi’s wedding as she zeroes in on her mate.
