Rakhi Sawant has definitely earned her place in the industry. She became popular amongst the youth because of her great dancing skills, but sadly her family never supported her love for dancing. During an episode of the weekend chat show JuzzBaatt… Sangeen Se Namkeen Tak, the host Rajeev Khandelwal address Rakhi as Neeru. Upon hearing this name she became emotional and said “My family never approved of me getting into the (entertainment) industry and would beat me up black and blue if they would ever find me dancing. When I finally reached Mumbai, I started dancing and showcasing my talent in front of many producers who would also see me in a bad light,”.
The lack of support that she got from her family pushed her towards making the decision of going under the knife. "I thought that I would rather dance at a dance bar than in front of such inconsiderate people. I faced innumerable rejections and resorted to surgery to improve my looks and appearance. I went into the surgery room as my former self Neeru Bheda but came out as a new and improved version of my own self - Rakhi Sawant."
