Bigg Boss OTT is ruling the headlines and has been witnessing some love happening inside the house. Be it the closeness between Neha Bhasin and Pratik Sehajpal or the bonding between 42 years old, Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty, fans are loving every bit of it. Talking about Raqesh and Shamita, the two have been with each other since day one and have on-and-off confessed to having some feelings for one another.
Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty already bond like life partners, who fight and still cannot live without one another. In fact, their housemates have started teasing Raqesh, calling Shamita his wife, and he too is seen concerned about the actress. For the unversed, Raqesh was earlier married to TV actress, Ridhi Dogra and they had ended their wedding in 2019.
Raqesh Bapat is always seen following Shamita Shetty’s guidelines and mending things with her, and this made Kashmera Shah troll him. On her Twitter handle, Kashmera shared that Raqesh is on his way to become a henpecked husband again. She tweeted, "Congratulations @RaQesh19, you are on your way to becoming a henpecked husband… again." Well, this sure did not go down well with his ex-wife, Ridhi Dogra, who asked her not to pass loose comments. She replied, "Again!? Excuse me. Kindly don't make loose comments. Peace out."
Ridhi Dogra has been supporting Raqesh Bapat from outside the house. In one of the episodes, during a fight, Pratik Sehajpal had called Raqesh, spineless, hurting him beyond measures. Raqesh had started crying in front of Shamita Shetty and ex-contestant, Riddhima Pandit, and they had hugged him. A clip from the same incident was shared on his IG handle, where Raqesh could be heard saying that he is the son of a soldier and he won’t fight for a wrong cause.
Raqesh Bapat’s ex-wife, Ridhi Dogra, had immediately come out in his support and had shared that being loud and twisting words is considered entertainment in this world. She had commented, "By virtue of choosing goodness and humanity one is a winner. Being loud and twisting words and not letting people speak is unfortunately considered entertainment in this world. But there are some of us on the side of humanity. And that's what matters! @raqeshbapat."
For the unversed, in 2019, Ridhi Dogra and Raqesh Bapat had announced their separation after seven years of marriage, leaving everyone stunned. The ex-couple had confirmed their separation by releasing a joint statement, which could be read as “Yes, we are living separately. This decision has been taken with mutual respect and care for each other and our families. We are two best friends who may not be a couple anymore. But our friendship will continue as it always has, through thick and thin. Appreciate if no further speculation is made and heartfelt gratitude to everyone for all the love you have always given us."
For the unversed, Raqesh and Ridhi had fallen for each other during their stint on the television show, Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak?
