Bigg Boss OTT - Raqesh Bapat

Tum Bin actor Raqesh Bapat entered the Bigg Boss OTT house but has often been accused of not playing his game wholly. On day 25 of the show, he was heard revealing the reason for that - dyslexia.

The actor made the revelation when the new entrant Nia Sharma asked him to perform a task in which he has to talk about himself. Grabbing the opportunity with both hands, Raqesh asked people to be more understanding of him.

"I was slow in studies," the actor said. Raqesh added that he had faced a tough time in school and that has been his whole life. Thus, he asked people to not be too quick to judge him.

Raqesh's connection, Shamita Shetty and his friend Divya Agarwal have often told him that he won't understand the show, which he agrees to, but asks them to be more understanding of him.

Nia also brought up the point to Raqesh stating that he is in a cocoon, while his partner Shamita is playing her game wholly. To that, Raqesh responded saying that for him, more than two is a crowd. Of course, Bigg Boss hosts around 10 people, which, as seen in the past, has been tough for the actor.

Raqesh has often tried to tell Shamita the same point by stating that he had a very difficult school life and ending his marriage was also a tough choice. The actor was married to actor Ridhi Dogra for eight years. The two continue to remain friends till date.

Raqesh celebrated his birthday with the housemates and wild card entrant Nia on September 1. Bigg Boss OTT, hosted by Karan Johar, currently has Raqesh, Shamita, Nia, Divya, Pratik Sehajpal, Neha Bhasin, Akshara Singh, Millind Gaba, Nishant Bhat and Muskaan Jattana in the game.
