Rakhi Sawant has men pouring in from all over India, wanting to marry her live on television, in her upcoming show, Rakhi Ka Swayamvara.

And Rakhi has quite a varied choice -- from a policeman in Jammu and Kashmir to a theatre actor in Rishikesh.

The beautiful desert city of Udaipur in Rajasthan will host Rakhi's Swayamvara. Besides hosting the show, Ram Kapoor will multi-task as Rakhi's friend, philosopher and guide. Her celebrity friends will also come on the show and help her make decisions.

The excitement starts June 29, and you can watch Rakhi Ka Swayamvara from Monday to Friday at 9pm on NDTV Imagine.

We take a look at the 16 men vying for Rakhi's love:

Elesh Parujanwala

30
Profession: NRI businessman from Toronto, Canada. Now based in Mumbai.
Hails from: Navsari, Gujarat.

Why he wants to marry Rakhi Sawant: I appreciate Rakhi's honesty and her communication skills. I admire her work and love the way she dances. I think Rakhi cannot find a better groom than me.

Atirek Sharma
Age
: 24
Profession: Struggling actor
Hails from: Kanpur, now based in Mumbai

Why he wants to marry Rakhi Sawant: I know Rakhi's old flame Abhishek Awasthi since the last 15 years. But I am not in talking terms with him because of his attitude problem. I have not come to seek Rakhi's hand in revenge but with sole reason of looking for a life partner. I want to be more than a husband to Rakhi -- a true friend and confidante. The word 'no' does not exist in my dictionary and I give my best shot at everything I do.

Profession: A student pursuing a B A degree. He also assists his father in his poultry business.
Hails from: Haryana

Why he wants to marry Rakhi Sawant: Rakhi is sweet, innocent and someone who trusts people very easily. When I first got to know about Rakhi's Swayamvara, I went bonkers and immediately requested and persuaded my mother to register on my behalf. My nature is just like Rakhi Sawant's. I say things on people's face and do not keep anything in my heart.

Age
: 28
Profession: Retail Manager
Hails from: Jaipur

Why he wants to marry Rakhi Sawant: Rakhi is honest, frank and clean-hearted. I love her honest and bindass attitude. I think there is nothing wrong in doing item numbers. One definitely needs the grace, the poise and the body to do an item song. Post marriage, I would love Rakhi to wear traditional outfits, at least in front of my parents.

Profession: Marriage Bureau owner
Place: Nagpur

Why he wants to marry Rakhi Sawant: I like a girl who is independent, carefree and frank. Though my mother does not like the way Rakhi dances and dresses, I still want to get married to her, as I respect her for the person she is. I wouldn't allow Rakhi to do item numbers in future, as this would affect the reputation of my family. But I promise that I would keep Rakhi happy always.
