Rakhi, who along with beau Abhishek Awasthi lost in the final round to TV actors Sanjida Sheikh and Amir Ali, alleged in her complaint filed in the Oshiwara police station that the channel deliberately prevented her from winning the contest.
The winner in the show was selected on the basis of SMS voting by the viewers.
At a press conference in Mumbai, Rakhi alleged that voting was manipulated and SMSes in her favour were blocked. The channel was trying to promote its own shows by ensuring victory for those who act in them, she added.
Both Sanjida and Amir act in different serials aired on Star Plus.
Rakhi also challenged other contestants saying, "I and Abhishek will be performing on 31st night, which will be a challenge for us and everybody else. People will come to know the real abilities of Rakhi and Abhishek."
