Rakhi Sawant wins Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award
GUWAHATI: Rakhi Sawant has won the Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award for ‘Best Item Dancer in Bollywood.’ The award was presented in an event held on May 12 in Mumbai.
After receiving the award, Sawant repotedly said that she was glad that item girls are getting awards now as she has done 75-100 item songs in many languages till now, but hasn’t gotten an award yet. She then thanked the respective authorities for honouring her with the award.
Further, while speaking to the media, a reporter asked her if she bought the award, to which she replied that she totally deserved it.
It should be noted that this award is not to be confused with the prestigious 'Dadasaheb Phalke Award,' which is presented annually as part of the National Film Awards.
