Mumbai, Aug. 7 -- It's tough to take anything Rakhi Sawant says without a kettleful of salt, but it's equally entertaining not to. After recently claiming she had moved on from Rahul Gandhi, the actor now wants to marry Baba Ramdev or "Swami Ramdev" as she prefers to call him.
She even made some Rakhi-brand statements about the yogi's "stomach and perfect physique". Though it did make headlines briefly, that alone didn't impress her. "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get any response to what I said on national television, so I don't feel like talking about it now," says a disgruntled Rakhi, unsure of the kind of response she was expecting. "I know that what I said must've reached him.
Anyway, forget that." She pauses for just about a second. "I really like him (Baba Ramdev). I do! And I respect him a lot. People think I joke all the time, but no one respects people the way I do." And Rakhi's not one to give up easily. She has now invited Baba Ramdev on her new show, Gajab Desh Ki Ajab Kahaaniyan, which she's hosting on Imagine TV. "After I made that statement, everyone asked me 'Why Baba?'. I began questioning myself and felt weird. So I've invited him to my show and he is coming," says the actor, who has sworn to stun him with her antics. "I'll praise him beyond belief, do 'pranayam' for him and even prepare a dance number."
Meanwhile, though Rakhi's Swayamwar episode on TV didn't help find her a husband, she's seriously looking for someone to settle down with. "I plan to get married, but I haven't found anyone yet. I want a good guy who can understand me, my sorrows, the fact that I'm a very normal girl and what I do on TV is my work. I do it for my meals."
