Reportedly, Rakhi gave a call to the television channel Colors and insisted on casting her as the main lead of the Phulwa, which is inspired by the life story of Phoolan Devi. The channel was quiet surprised on such a demand by the item queen.
When asked on the confirmation of the news, Rakhi said to TOI, “I think I will be best suited to the role. Isme sharam ki kya baat hai?" Child artist Jannat Zubair, who was last seen in the TV Show Kashi will be seen featuring in the childhood life of Phoolan Devi.
Going by Rakhi's statement, truly she is the best suited for the role. But Rakhi, how did you forget to demand the role of Rani Lakshmi Bai in the serial 'Jhansi Ki Rani'!
