When stars like Aamir and Shahrukh have given me so much love and respect, who is Mallika to refuse? In any case, it wasn't my decision to approach her. Mallika isn't on my wish list of stars. My producers approached her and she declined. I have been told that Mallika is insecure about facing me. She has no reason to be. I am not a good dancer like her and she's a big star where as I am the poorest person in the industry today. Mein Shahrukh ka pairon ki dhool nahi but he loves me aur mere stars mujhe mana nahi karte."
Rakhi feels Mallika shouldn't have behaved in such a haughty manner, "Does she think she's such a diva? In God's eyes, we are all one and the same. Itna ghamand kabhi bhi nahi karna chahiye. If I do, I will go to the gutter. I say she's better than me but what I can give she can't. But I am honest and will say that mein apni naseeb ka khaungi or woh apne naseeb ka. I won't become smaller if she doesn't come on my show, she becomes small for refusing. Anyway, I have no problems that Mallika refused me. When she needs me I will stand by her."
