Did you know Rakhi Sawant’s real name is Neeru Bheda?

Rakhi Sawant is a name and personality in the entertainment industry that requires no introduction. However, not many know that Rakhi’s real name is Neeru Bheda.

Yes, you read that right! Her name was Neeru Bheda before she entered the entertainment industry. Rakhi made her acting debut in the 1997 action-drama film Agnichakra under the name Ruhi Sawant. Rakhi’s first item song came in 2000 film 'Joru Ka Ghulam'. The song featured the actress dancing with Govinda.

Rakhi has always been controversy's favourite child. Talking about this, she told ETimes, "That's because people don't want to let me live in peace with Adil. Mera ghar basne nahi dena in logon ko. I don't want controversies, but people want to harass me for no reason."

Rakhi Sawant recently landed in legal trouble for her recent press conference where she allegedly used objectionable language and content. This FIR, which has been filed by Sherlyn Chopra, also names Rakhi’s lawyer. According to a news agency, Sherlyn and Rakhi have both filed FIRs against each other.

In her complaint, Rakhi has stated that Sherlyn accused her for having multiple boyfriends in a video posted by the latter. Rakhi has reportedly told the police that Sherlyn made objectionable remarks against her and used abusive language. Previously, Rakhi had filed a defamation case against Sherlyn Chopra. Both the actresses have been at loggerheards since a while now.
