Rakhi Sawant is the ultimate drama queen and we love her for this. Starting off her career with item songs, Rakhi has come a long way and is quite popular, not only in India but in the world. She is known for her unfiltered comments and controversial statements. From posting her bold pictures on social media to sharing some meme-worthy videos, Rakhi is unapologetically herself. We have seen Rakhi finding a partner on Rakhi Ka Swayamvar, and later, calling it off. In her quest to find love, Rakhi had finally gotten married to a UK-based businessman, who has stood up for her this time.

It was back in 2019 when Rakhi Sawant had surprised everyone with the announcement of her wedding with a UK-based mystery man. To announce her ‘taken status’, Rakhi Sawant had posted pictures of herself, dressed as a bride in a white gown with a veil over her head, her locks left loose, chooda and mehendi as she had held a bouquet of tulips. Now, as Rakhi has entered the 14th season of Bigg Boss, she ended up indulging in a massive fight with Nikki Tamboli and Manu Punjabi. Nikki and Manu had raised questions about her career and stature, now, Rakhi’s husband, Ritesh has come forward and lashed out her co-contestants.
In an interview with SpotboyE, Ritesh slammed Nikki Tamboli for commenting on Rakhi’s career and lashed out at Manu Punjabi for questioning Rakhi’s ‘aukaat’. Coming out in support of his wife, Ritesh said, “Nikki who has just done three south films and had started her career in 2019 is questioning Rakhi’s experience. I feel she should just go and read her Wikipedia and she herself will come to know what her achievements are. Rakhi is not just popular here but all over the world.”
Lashing out a Manu’s statement, “Aapki aukaat kya hai ki aap mujhe bologi?”, Ritesh shared that he is an owner of 6 billion USD and Rakhi is married to him. Stating that there is no comparison between them, Ritesh added, “That Manu Punjabi is asking ‘Rakhi, teri aukaat kya hai? (what is your stature).’ Main poochta hoon uski apni aukaat kya hai (I want to ask what his own stature is)? His turnover is just 1.3 million USD whereas I am 6 billion owner and she is married to me. There is no comparison only. Kisi bhi insaan ki aukaat uske paise se nahi uske behaviour se hoti hai (The stature of a person is not determined by a person’s wealth but their behaviour) and they should understand that.” (Don't Miss: 'Bollywood Wives' Fame, Seema Khan Wishes Hubby, Sohail Khan Half Century With His Photo With Kids)
Rakhi Sawant’s marriage with Ritesh has always been in question. In an interview with ETimes, Rakhi Sawant had revealed that she had gotten married under very difficult circumstances and hence, she had not revealed anything about her husband. But now, she wants to change that. She was quoted saying, "I know it's high time and people, especially my fans, want to see him. They have been demanding it since I got married and as I am entering the Bigg Boss House, I want him to introduce himself to everyone. In fact, maine usse dhamki bhi di hai, ki ab usse sabke saamne aana hi hoga. What if Salman Sir asks to meet my husband?" Rakhi Sawant had then added, "I got married under very difficult circumstances and we could not announce it. It was a love-cum- arranged marriage and he is a UK based businessman. I am soon going to reveal all other details to the public. It's just a matter of time. Jaldi hi doodh ka doodh aur pani ka pani ho jayega."

We are glad that Rakhi’s husband has come forward to support her!
