Rakhi thanked Hema Malini

Rakhi Sawant responded to actor-turned-politician Hema Malini's remark that even ‘Rakhi can become … (contest election from Mathura) by saying, apparently in a mockingly serious way, that she would contest the 2024 elections and thanked Hema Malini for saying this.

Thanking Hema Malini and Prime Minister Narendra Modi she said, "I would like to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji for putting the great responsibility on my shoulders and considering me worthy of this. Thank you for giving me the opportunity of contesting the election as Hema Malini Ji has already announced."

Sawant also emphasized that if PM Modi can become PM by making tea, she too can become the Chief Minister.

"As far as I am concerned, I have been serving society from childhood itself. I was born to serve the country only and I want to serve it. When our Prime Minister can become the PM by making tea, then why can't I be a CM after working in Bollywood? Definitely, I will and I need the best wishes of you all," Sawant said.

The Bollywood actor, however, said it would be a "surprise" against whom she would be contesting.

Hema Malini on September 24 reacted to the speculations that Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut could contest elections from Mathura and had said that "Tomorrow, even Rakhi Sawant will become…".

"Good, it is good...what can I say about my opinion? My opinion is only up to God. You only want film stars in Mathura. If someone else wants to become an MP, you will not let him become because according to you only a film star should become MP from Mathura. Tomorrow, even Rakhi Sawant will become," she said.

Mathura is Hema Malini’s parliamentary constituency. 

Recently, the Dhaakad actress reached Vrindavan along with her family and offered prayers at the Thakur Banke Bihari temple.

The yesteryear actress, who is lovingly known as ‘Dream Girl’, was elected as the Member of Parliament from Mathura twice, in 2014 and in 2019.

Kangana said that she would definitely love to join politics if her fans so desired. She made the remarks during the promotion of Thailavii.
