Dadasaheb Phalke’s ‘best item dancer’ award for Rakhi Sawant

While newbies like Janhvi Kapoor-Ishaan Khatter and Aahana Kumra and Kubra Sait were the highlights of the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award on Saturday, it was Rakhi Sawant who actually made news for bagging the ‘Best Item Dancer in Bollywood’.
Usually in news for her brash statements and funny antics, Rakhi Sawant was overwhelmed and said, “Thank God, item girls are getting awards now.”
The item girl has done over 100 item numbers in different regional films, but never received an award. She thanked the organisers, Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award, and her fans for recognising her work.
However, she is been picked upon on the internet by social media enthusiasts. When a reporter cheekily asked her if she had purchased the award she replied that she said, ‘I do not have the capacity to purchase an award. I totally deserve the award’.
