The life of an item girl...

... ain't all fun. Sonia Faleiro writes of Rakhi Sawant:
As her popularity grows, so does the pressure. According to Usha, her daughter eats a full meal only on Sunday. During the week, she has a cup of tea and fresh aloe vera for breakfast, juice for lunch, fruit for dinner. She exercises two hours daily. In her new video, Hoton Mein Aisi Baat, her gaunt appearance prompts concerns of anorexia. During the interview, the Sawants' family doctor administers an injection to Rakhi. "He says I'm very weak," she says, later. "He told me to eat, stop exercising. I will eat for 10 days then I'll stop in time for my next shoot."
