Rakhi Sawant's mother Jaya Sawant was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour in her gallbladder. She was admitted to the hospital earlier this year and now, the tumour has been removed successfully. Rakhi, who participated in Bigg Boss 14, as a Challenger, recorded a video for the show's host Salman Khan before her mother's surgery to thank him for all his help. In the video, Mrs. Sawant revealed Salman has funded her cancer surgery and called him an 'angel'.
"Main Salman ji ko namaskar karti hun. Mere Jesus ko hum pray karte the ki ab humare paas paisa nahi hai toh hum kya karenge, kya main aise hi mar jaungi. Par Parmeshwar ne, Jesus ne, Salman Khan ko angel banake humare jeevan mein bheja. Aur mere liye aaj Salman Khan khade rahe hain mera operation kara rahe hain. Unki puri family mere liye khadi rahi hai. Main parmeshwar ko dhanyawaad karti hun, aapko dhanyawaad karti hun," Mrs. Sawant said blessing the actor and his entire family for standing with the Sawant clan during difficult circumstances.
Rakhi, with folded hands, thanked Salman for saving her mother's life. She further thanked the superstar for recommending the 'world's best doctor'. Rakhi wished that every Indian household has sons like Salman and Sohail Khan.
Rakhi shared a video showing the tumour. She wrote, "Thanks to all my fans!! Thanks to Salman khan!! Thanks to Dr. Sanjay Sharma & Dr. Chopra!! Thanks to all our well wishers!! Operation success!!"
