Over the years, with her antics, Rakhi Sawant has won our hearts. She is praised for her unfiltered approach towards life and the way she honestly puts her life in front of her fans. She had tied the knot with a secret man, a businessman, Ritesh in 2019 at JW Marriott. For the longest time, she had kept her husband’s identity hidden but had revealed many stories around him when she was inside Bigg Boss 14 house. It was in Bigg Boss 15 that finally the nation had got to see her husband, Ritesh and had become a part of their rollercoaster-like married life.
From their fights inside the Bigg Boss 15 house to Ritesh’s first wife’s shocking revelations or Rakhi Sawant openly talking about not being legally married to Ritesh, their journey inside the reality show was praised by all. Post their eviction from the show, on January 28, 2022, Rakhi and her husband, Riteish were spotted in the city. As the paps had asked them to pose for pictures, Rakhi had planted a kiss on her husband's cheeks, and the latter had kissed her back. However, Ritesh was acting a bit shy after their lovey-dovey PDA and couldn't stop blushing. Looking at him, Rakhi had said:
"Sharmao mat na tumhari hu padosi ki nahi."
As Valentine’s Day is around the corner, Rakhi Sawant, too, has some demands from her husband, Ritesh to pamper her. The paps spotted Rakhi and Ritesh at the showroom of Mercedes Benz as the controversy queen was sitting inside one of the cars. In a conversation with paps, Rakhi talked about how she always wanted to buy Mercedes Benz, and assumed that maybe her husband, Ritesh might gift her one on Valentine’s Day, indirectly passing the ball in his court. However, meanwhile, Ritesh was seen reluctant to sit inside the car and was also seen nodding a ‘No’ to Rakhi. His reaction to Rakhi’s aao jaan yahan baitho was indeed an 'every husband ever' moment.
In one of the episodes of Bigg Boss 15, RJ Karan and RJ Palak had entered the house and had grilled the contestants with some hard-hitting and personal questions. Rakhi Sawant had got emotional and a bit teary-eyed while talking about the future of her marriage with her husband, Ritesh. Confirming that she isn't legally married to Ritesh, the actress had clearly stated that she will not stay with Ritesh until he gives her a marriage certificate. In her strong statement to RJs, Rakhi had said:
"Don't feel pity on me Ritesh. If you think I am a good human being and deserve your love only then take this relationship ahead. I don't need sympathy, I want my rights as a wife. For that you will have to give me the certificate of marriage and I am ready to spend my entire life with you. If you can't get me the certificate I don't think I will be able to continue with this relationship. We will have to go separate ways."
Earlier, in one of the episodes of Bigg Boss 15, Rakhi had revealed why she had to marry Ritesh. She had said that she had got married to him in order to save herself from a don, who was following her, but she was unaware of Ritesh's previous marriage and child. She had added that she had got to know about it after their marriage. While her statement had melted many hearts, some had called her fake and had brutally commented that she was making stories to be in the show.
Well, Rakhi Sawant and Ritesh’s banter is always about every husband-wife ever!
