Rakhi Sawant’s upcoming film Ek Kahaani Julie Ki is based on the Sheena Bora murder mystery, where she will play the character of prime accused Indrani Mukherjea. The actress and item girl says she was once Indrani’s "favourite star".

"I was her favourite star," Rakhi said at a media interaction here.

"Indrani always lived a stressful life. But only now we’ve come to know what stress she was going through. I will portray everything on screen… how she was nice, a mastermind and money-minded," she added.

Rakhi claims that she knew Sheena and worked closely with Indrani and her husband Peter Mukherjea. She also said that their friendship grew on the set of the two reality shows — Yeh Hai Jalwa and Jalwa Four 2 Ka 1, which were aired on 9X — under INX Media, which was helmed by Peter.

"I know all the minute and big details about her. I thought no one else could’ve played this character better than me," said Rakhi, and added: "No one knows what or who forced her that she had to take this drastic step. I feel that though Indrani has confessed, but still she is hiding something."

Ek Kahaani Julie Ki is produced by Avadh Sharma for Chetna Entertainment.
