During a recent conversation with Spotboye, Bigg Boss OTT’s Raqesh Bapat got asked how he would handle his co-contestant’s personal attacks while on the show. He said, “My marriage and divorce are all in the open. We amicably had a very natural course of getting out of it and still are very respectful towards each other – no mudslinging happened or is going to happen. Nobody’s pelting stones on each other.”
Talking about his ex-wife Ridhi Dogra’s reaction to his participation in Bigg Boss OTT, Raqesh Bapat said, “I told her for sure and she is worried about how I will be. She said I don’t know how well you’ll do it as you are very different from the people who go inside. So, I said yaa wish me luck that is all I can say. None of my industry friends know that I am participating. I want to keep it a surprise.”
Talking about his family’s reaction to him saying yes to the show, Raqesh‘s said, “My family of course know that I am going inside and they have just told me to be me because they know that I can’t fake or be unreal. My strategy will also be to stand up against injustice. Disrespect towards women is something that I really don’t like. I have a strong voice and can be a leader but at the same time, I am a shy person. So, my family is a little worried and happy at the same time”.
