Raqesh Bapat has been one of the most dignified contestants of this season's Bigg Boss. In fact, the actor has many times said on the show that it's taken him time to settle in the house because he's not the type to pick up fights on every small thing. Patience has been a forte as the actor is seen as one of the most eligible bachelors on the show.
However, in a recent turn of events, the actor was questioned about a comment and Karan Johar went on to call him 'sexist'. Raqesh tried to defend himself but are contestants ever allowed a fair game to present their viewpoint?

Raqesh's sister Sheetal says, "His words were taken out of context and used against him. My brother and I have been working together in the field of girl child education, counselling and rehabilitation of domestic violence survivors, and various training for gender stereotypes and changing gender narratives in society. I know my brother and I know that the language used for him is very strong and he's being labelled for all the wrong reasons".

She went on to say, "It's a fact that men most of the time are physically stronger than women and the conversation was in the context of a task, when taken out of context, it has a completely different meaning. Also, the context was about two housemates but the entire conversation has taken out of context and the facts change when they aren't in context. Raqesh has always believed in women empowerment".
