Rakhi is a shameful part of my past
Rakhi Sawant is a shameful part of my past: Ex-boyfriend
He further adds that he regrets the time spent with her Item girl Rakhi Sawant, who was recently in Kolkata to shoot an item song for a local movie, made it to the news after she was spotted getting up, close and personal with her ex-boyfriend Abhishek Awasthi at Comedy Circus maker Raaj Shaandilyaa's birthday party. Rakhi had earlier made headlines for slapping Abhishek in public, while he had said he regretted being Rakhi Sawant's boyfriend.
So when we quizzed Rakhi on the topic, she said, "I went to the party and Abhishek suddenly caught hold of me and the photographers went berserk. Now I can't ignore him na. We still have courteous relations. He is a good friend." When asked if something was brewing between them, she said, "Impossible, am not interested in him."
On asking Abhishek about the incident, he said, "Raaj is like a brother to me. We stay in the same building. So I was like the host of the party. Thus, I was meeting everyone and was dancing. Rakhi was one of them. I don't have any feelings for her in my heart." As an afterthought, he said, "Rakhi is a shameful part of my past. I regret the time spent with her.
She was my biggest mistake ever and I won't make that mistake again. I am at present dating someone and very much committed. My girlfriend was also there at the party, so the news of me and Rakhi being close is utter rubbish. There is no space of Rakhi Sawant in my life."
But when reminded that it is she who gave him his identity, he said, "It irritates me so much to be known as Rakhi's ex-boyfriend. I have done so much on Indian television. I have played iconic characters. Still why do people associate me with her? Come on guys, I have a name! And that's Abhishek Awasthi." Need we say more?
