Rakhi Sawant got all the success she aspired for, after winning Yeh Hai Jalwa and now the Chat Queen has graduated to the Judgesâ€™ seat with Zeeâ€™s new show, Ek Se Badhkar Ekâ€¦ Chota Packet Bada Dhamaka.â€œIt is a great responsibility to judge a children show as one has to be very sensitive while marking them.The recent incident in Orissa where rude remarks by the judgesâ€™ left a girl paralyzed is a moot reminder of the need to be carefulâ€, states Rakhi.Having seen the other side of the coin too as a contestant in reality shows, how will Rakhi now react when children cry foul?
â€œAs their didi, I will stand up for themâ€, quips she. The â€˜Drama Queenâ€™ has indeed got smarter and mature with all the past experiences and does not want to talk about other shows. â€œWho are we to comment? Some shows are genuine, while few are not. Our job is to judge and go homeâ€, avers the â€˜newâ€™ Rakhi.
So does this mean you will not take part in reality shows? â€œNo, I love to dance and if I stop, my body will rustâ€, she jokes with a grin. She adds on, â€œI love this format and will continue to be part of it either as a contestant or as a judgeâ€.
Rakhi is overwhelmed that boy friend Abhishek Awasthi got due recognition in Ek Se Badhkar Ek and was adjudged the â€˜Best Dancerâ€. â€œI am happy for him even though he did not win the crownâ€, quips the new judge.
Last but not the least, Rakhi was all praise for the channel as she concludes saying, â€œZee has always been good to me and I am happy to be working with themâ€.
