Elesh Parujanwala, Rakhi ka Swayamwar, Rakhi Sawant, Swayamwar

Rakhi ka Swayamvar – The Aftermath

Dressed in more jewelry than clothes, Rakhi invoked ‘God Jeejus’ with a tuneless song sung on stage, pretended to bashfully shiver (me thinks it was more the lack of clothes, than shyness, that may have caused the shivering) joked there could be a Swayamvar Part 2, and finally got ENGAGED to the businessman from Toronto, Elesh Parujanwala.

At the start of the show itself I had pinned my hopes on Elesh being the chosen one, for the sole reason that he was the only NRI groom who could help the cause of us Indians by taking this forever-seeking-the-limelight Nautankibaaz, Rakhi, out of our country.

Strangely though, this ‘reech’ (in Rakhi’s pronunciation, not mine) and articulate businessman is suddenly a struggler who is finding his feet in Mumbai city and has requested Rakhi for some time to do so. Hence the Engagement, instead of the Swayamvar.

Moreover, apparently Elesh wants to get to know Rakhi better (Why do I have a feeling that he just might regret this decision?) see her without make-up (Gulp! Brave guy! Hope he’s fond of horror) and see how compatible they are (Brave AND a risk-taker!)

On the flipside, if this relationship does work out and lead to marriage (yes, miracles are known to happen, folks!) we could always witness Rakhi ka Talaq to follow.

And if this relationship does not work out, await, Rakhi ka Swayamvar – Season 2.

Till then, watch them together in a forthcoming TV show.

  2. I was in India when this happened, and unfortunately was at my mom's with nowhere to escape on that particular night!! Well-written post – my sentiments exactly!! Apparently they're doing some show where they experiment on being parents or something like that and Rakhi said "kids give me headache!!" :))

  3. At the risk of sticking my neck out,in real life , there are many instances of odd couples making it through…and great couples breaking off….so one never knows how the cookie crumbles…
