She formerly dated Abhishek Avasthi with whom she participated in Nach Baliye 3. After the couple lost the contest against Sanjeeda Sheikh and Aamir Ali in 2007, they filed a suit against Star Plus accusing the channel of tampering with the audience voting system.

In June 2006, Mika Singh, a prominent Punjabi musician forcibly kissed her at his birthday party, which erupted into a major media controversy.

In 2009, Sawant launched her reality show Rakhi Ka Swayamwar in which she planned to select her future husband with a swayamvara. The show became the highest rated in the history of the Imagine TV channel with both its premiere and finale setting records. On 2 August 2009 she chose her life partner, a contestant from Toronto, Canada, Elesh Parujanwala. However, during the finale of the reality show Pati, Patni Aur Woh several months later, Sawant announced that the couple had separated due to irreconcilable differences.


I started off as a nobody in the industry. But today, whatever I am, it is because of my fans and I want them to be a part of this important decision of my life. Although I will take the final call, my fans and friends from the industry would be a constant guide for me to select the right person.

I am happy being an item girl as I find nothing wrong in it. I am also doing lots of movies where I play second leads, negative characters and character roles. Of course I shall be seen in many item songs as well. When I have what others lack, then why shouldn't I make the most of it! I like all my songs, although the censor people are not comfortable with what I do. But I just don't care.

Celebrities are not afraid of me. In fact, they love me.

I miss my father. When I am alone, I often cry. You have not seen that side of Rakhi Sawant and neither will you. I will bravely fight all the odds in my life.

It is impossible to change your image. I feel any effort to change over from being a sex bomb to goodie-goodie types is foolish. I will continue to be the way I and will also continue doing items numbers, television shows and anything that is offered to me.
