Rakhi Swant sells. She has become a brand. First of all, she is probably as much recongized in india as Amitabh Bachchan, SRK and even Aishwarya. Everyone loves to hate her. Putting the reasons aside, everyone DOES now who Rakhi Sawant is.Fame is not easy to come. Like it or not, she is powerful. A Tv show with her name would perhaps be more wathced than a show with SRK as it's host.
The Rakhi Sawant Showz had none other than Aamir Khan on it. Aamir Khan does not go on any talk show-not even Koffee with Karan. Yet, he made an exception for Rakhi.
Rakhi's Swaymvar was the one of the most watched shows of recent times. The finale had a record breaking audience, greater than Dus ka Dum,Kbc, and other shows by huge Bollywood Stars. The Trps of that channel skyrocketted over night becuase of Rakhi. No Bollywood Star of recent time has had such a successfull and hugly popular show. Shows like Nach Baliye, Bigg Boss, Yeh Hain Jalwa(which she won) and her recent Pati Patni Aur Who and others were all successfull with Rakhi and her drama as the main audience puller.
She was the Guest on the grand Finale of Dus Ka Dum and also Nach Baliye. Why? Because the audience WILL tune into watch her.
Not a week goes by without the entertainment channels talking about a scoop or controversy about Rakhi. She is the darling of the media. She is above all the Diya Mirzas, Koena Mitras, Tanushree Duttas, Aftab Shivdasani's, etc. who know one gives work to. She has that natural entertainemnt that many of our boring Bollywood celebs don't possess in real life. No one has as many HIT reality shows to their name as Rakhi. She's done it all, contestant, judge, host, and more.
So, Is Rakhi the Queen of Indian Television?
I certainly think so.
