Popular from first season of Bigg Boss actress Rakhi Sawant has joined the upcoming season of ‘Box Cricket League’ and is excited about playing for her team Goa Sharks.
‘Box Cricket League’ is an Indian sports reality TV show where celebrities are seen competing with each other in an indoor cricket game format.
She says the only reason for doing this is to encourage women to play cricket.
“I don’t believe that girls are limited to playing only with dolls and kitchen sets. I feel they can also be as good as men in playing cricket. The people in our country are addicted to watch men’s cricket matches. No one bothers to support the women’s team.”
She said, “In the past, I have been a part of a film ‘Dil Bole Hadippa!’ based on the same issue. It starred Rani Mukerji.”
“Now, I am a part of BCL to motivate girls to take female cricket to another level. BCL is about cricket irrespective of gender. Both male and female celebrities play,” she added.
Apart from acting, Rakhi is a dancer, model, and television actress and television talk show host, who has appeared in many Hindi and a few Kannada, Marathi, Telugu and Tamil films.
She is also popular in politics, and she had launched her own political party, the ‘Rashtriya Aam Party’ to contest the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections.–CINEWS
