Javed Akhtar confirms talks with Rakhi Sawant on her biopic; actress wants Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone or Kareena Kapoor Khan to play her role


Legendary poet, lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar confirmed that he wants to write a script for Rakhi Sawant's biopic after rumours started popping up on the internet. Rakhi, who came back into the spotlight due to her stint in Bigg Boss 14, had first shared about Javed's idea of writing a script based on her life. 

In a recent interview, Rakhi claimed "I was called by Javed Akhtar before the Coronavirus pandemic a year ago. He said that he wanted to write my biopic and meet me."

Talking to an entertainment portal, Javed has now confirmed that he indeed told Rakhi that he would like to write a script on her life. This was at a time when the two had met on a flight and Rakhi told Akhtar about her childhood. The writer said, “No, she is right. I think some four or five years back we were on the same flight and she told me about her childhood and I did tell her that someday I would like to write a script based on her life.”

Meanwhile, Rakhi while talking about the same had said, “I got a call from Javed Akhtar Ji, before Covid, about a year ago. He said that he wanted to write my biopic and had asked to meet him. But after that day, I did not get to meet him. They want a biopic to be made on me, but my biopic will be very controversial and I do not know whether the people of the country would like to see it or not.”

When asked who she think should play her in the biopic, she said 'Alia Bhatt'. She said, "I don't know whether he will cast me or Alia or Priyanka Chopra. I love myself but I don't want to do it, so either Alia can do it or Deepika Padukone or even Kareena Kapoor Khan. They are all my favourite actresses."
