After Indian trolls attacked her for posing with a Pakistani flag, Rakhi defended herself saying she has a lot of respect for Pakistan.

Main logon ko yeh batana chahti hoon ki main ek Pakistani larki dikhayi gayi hoon (in the film). Pakistan ke logon ke seenay mein bhi dil hota hai. Bohot pyaare hote hain. Main Pakistan ki bohot respect karti hoon, unke logon ki respect karti hoon [I want to tell people that I am playing a Pakistani girl (in the film). Pakistanis also have a heart. They are good people and I respect Pakistan and its citizens,]” she said in a video message.
