Like most people, it took me a while to realise it was SHOWZ! You'd either have to be blind or too involved with making out in the back seat of a car...if you hadn't seen the hoarding of Rakhi's new show. and of course, uncle Akshay and his 13 "haseenai" are competing relentlessly to get your attention....but have to say..the deep neckline, the slap stick humor, the Rakhi effect...for me...personally is slightly more exciting.
On a strictly professional level, Rakhi and me go back a long way. I cant remember what, but for some strange reason...rakhi was up in arms against a music company for some shit. I couldn't care less. The CNN IBN entertainment reporter in me was yawning at the news, and delighted at the fact...that my channel would be most excited if i did something outrageous with her.
Of course, as the story goes......i remember...rakhi shoving her...err..assets in my face...and the channel played it up, like it was the biggest news story ever. I was only too delighted!
Now, you tell me.... if you got an invitation to come see RAKHI KE BOUNCERS ...you sure as hell would be convinced...you know...that this was about....ahem! anyway, so me and my excited self landed up at a press con, that was to mark the launch of a new show, by THAT name on a channel....and that's where i realised rakhi and me had a deeper connection...that I'd have thought. We were both tattooed! So while i promptly showed off the tattoo on my back to the camera, rakhi plopped around quickly to shove her booty straight at the lens. The fact that her tattoo was on the small of her back, just seemed incidental after it all!
and then of course there were numerous shoots. I particularly remember the april fools gag, where she slaps me and what not.....and we have a ball! thru it all, the one thing that hasn't changed is that she always starts by saying.." accha mujhe hindi mein sumjhao na!".
Well, to be honest...i'd take that any day....as opposed to another starlet who looks great, is known for her link ups with a nankhatai..and INSISTS on talking only in english!
anyway..back to the SHOWZ. i think i expected a lot more. but i suppose rakhi is rakhi because THATS WHO SHE REALLY IS! when you're asking her to be a motor mouth and be sensational...you're making her act, and lets be honest..that's not her strong point. Just let her BEEEEE on the show...and a lot more...i think...will SHOWZ!
