Reality TV just got a little more real. Rakhi Sawant is now on a public hunt for her real life “dulha”. NDTV Imagine has announced its new Reality show woven around the most outspoken celebrity of India. The show will be called Rakhi Ka Swayamvara and will capture the journey of Rakhi right through the initial eliminations to the final selection of her groom and the marriage ceremony.

The channel held a press conference in this regard yesterday, and Rakhi kept everyone entertained with her outspoken wit and humor. It is no surprise that she took potshots at many Bollywood celebrities. When asked how she thought of a public search for the right man, she replied that she has always maintained that whenever she gets married it will be in full public view. Referring to Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, she said that when the audience is responsible for making celebrities, it is not fair to hide away behind big gates to get married. She castigated Akshay Kumar for his “indecent” unbutton act, Aamir Khan for his “Ghajini” haircut and Shahrukh Khan for his injured arm!

Yes Rakhi, we all know that you are scared of nobody. You reserve your right to speech and how you exercise it!!! But is it worth it to make enemies in the industry?

When asked what her dream man would be like, Rakhi announced that he should have qualities of her favorite actors SRK, Aamir and Salman. Damage control, eh? The ideal man should also be a good dancer, said Rakhi.

The show is being produced by SOL Productions Private Ltd. After initial auditions from all over India, 15 finalists will be selected by Rakhi for competing in the show. The format of the show is that the short listed contestants will be tested on their character, personality, physical fitness, talent and compatibility with Rakhi. In the final week, we will watch the wedding extravaganza. From “Mehandi” to “Sangeet” to the final ceremony, everything will be televised and brought to your home.

Though it is not final yet when the show will be telecast, most probably it will be shown after the IPL. Rakhi Sawant hopes to start the trend of Swayamvara just like Kareena Kapoor started the trend of size zero. Comparing herself with Sita, Rakhi said she may not find a Ram, but she could surely find a Shyam. Interestingly, the one bachelor Rakhi claims to have interest in is Rahul Gandhi. She hopes that he will watch her show and maybe send her a proposal.

While most women pray for amiable mothers-in-law, Rakhi wants a Lalita Pawar/Bindu kind of “Saas”. She says that she is so full of “masala” that she would be happy only with the soap style saas, devrani, jethani etc! So, all the Lalita Pawars and Bindus out there, what are you waiting for? Get your son to send across his profile to Rakhi immediately!
