Rakhi Sawant arrives with Deepak Kalal
Rakhi Sawant showed up at ITA Awards 2018 in Mumbai with husband-to-be, Deepak Kalal, in an outfit mistakenly worn outside a beach party. If she was not done collecting much limelight for all weird reasons in the last couple of days, Rakhi’s outfit made sure that she received enough attention that night but only of trolls.
