Rakhi Sawant says she met model Rinky before her death

Mumbai: Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant says she met model Rinky alias Priyanshi Choudhury just days before her death that is being probed as a suspected suicide case.

"I`ve a message for young girls. Don`t get possessive about your boyfriends. Not worth it. I am so sad to know she killed herself. If I had handled her case (on her reality show `Raakhi Ka Insaaf`) this wouldn`t have happened. I had worked with Rinky in Priyadarshan`s `Malaamal Weekly`. She had done two-three films with Priyan sir. She was slim and so happy," said Rakhi.

"I ran into her very recently at a parlour and was shocked at how much weight she had put on. I advised her to join a gym. And she did. If I only knew what she was going through, I`d have definitely helped her."

The model was found hanging from the ceiling at her residence in Goregaon Oct 28, after allegedly receiving calls from her boyfriend Sahil Malik`s ex-girlfriend.

Sahil was arrested two days later and is being interrogated.

"I am shocked to know that a girl as decent and warm as Rinky died for a man. Men are not worth killing yourself for. I`ve been through a broken relationships. Girls become over-possessive. Men don`t care beyond a point. `Ek gayi, doosri aayi`... This is the bitter truth of life...Ninety percent men are like that. As long as their wives don`t get to know, they are happy doing their own thing."

Rakhi was also in a series of bad relationships. First, she dated Abhishek Awasthi and later got engaged to Elesh Parujanwala on the reality show "Rakhi Ka Swayamwar".

Talking abour her relationship, she said: "My boyfriend too turned out to be a two-timer. I said bye to him. I didn`t kill myself. I forgave him. My marriage on television also turned out to be a fiasco. I got to know he was here for publicity, not marriage.

"I`ve no interest in dating boys any longer. I`ll directly move to marriage and set up my home, whenever it happens. I`ve one life and I want to live it well. Rather than waste my time chasing boys, I`d pursue god and do his work."
