Bigg Boss OTT's Raqesh Bapat's ex-wife Ridhi Dogra rooted for him throughout the show. She also defended him while he was inside the BB OTT house and was called a 'henpecked husband' by Kashmera Shah, who felt that he never took a stand for Shamita Shetty in the house. In an interview now, Raqesh has opened up about his ex-wife's support and revealed that she was bothered about him being called a 'henpecked husband'.
Speaking to ETimes TV, Raqesh said, "Yes, I spoke to her after coming out of the house. She is not in India, she's abroad. She told me that I played well and that she was worried about me as to how I would be dealing with things. She was worried about me and Nishant Bhat also that we don't fight too much. Three of us have spent a lot of time together."
The actor further said that they talked about Kashmera's 'henpecked husband' remark. "She was just bothered about me being called henpecked. She also reacted against it. Ridhi told me that you as a person can never be henpecked and it's just that you care a lot about people who you like and that's why you are that way. She also said to me that when you feel for a person, you would never react to that person in an angry way," he added.
Raqesh and Ridhi met on the sets of Maryada. It was friendship that turned into love. The couple tied the knot in 2011 and announced their separation in 2019. ALSO READ:Bigg Boss OTT's Neha Bhasin On Shamita Shetty And Raqesh Bapat's Budding Romance And Relationship: ‘I Am Very Happy For Them’
