NEW DELHI - Rakhi Sawant chose her fiance, Canada-based businessman Elesh Parujanwala, from among 16 prospective grooms on a TV show, but the item girl now says her would-be husband has “an egg-like face”.

Rakhi and Elesh are part of a new reality show “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” on NDTV Imagine, where they will be seen taking care of babies of different ages. Rakhi said the first kid was scared of Elesh because of his face.

The show starts Monday at 10.30 p.m.
