Shamita Shetty has often maintained in the Bigg Boss OTT house that Divya Agarwal and Raqesh Bapat have a 'soft spot' for each other.
Shamita Shetty and Raqesh Bapat's relationship has only come to a complicated stage as the days pass by on Bigg Boss OTT. Currently, while it looks like they have gone their separate ways, many people feel that it is because of Divya Agarwal. However, on the 36th night, Shamita cleared that Divya, in fact no third person has come between her and Raqesh's connection.
"This has come up a lot of times so I feel I need to say this. There is no third person between our (mine and Raqesh's) connection," the actress said. Raqesh agreed to that.
Raqesh and Shamita shared that they were happy when Bigg Boss asked the contestants to play solo. Raqesh said that 'people saw him differently' because of his connection with Shamita, referring to the henpecked comment.
The actor further shared that he was happy even when he was with his connection (Shamita) but defended the statement saying happiness is internal.
Shamita also says she is happy to be free since she was called 'bossy' and 'demeaning'. The actress shared that she was very hurt and wanted Raqesh to play his game. She further called it 'forced connection' and said that Raqesh was always confused. Thus, she explained, the duo felt they could be better paired with someone else.
Shamita also spoke about the bossy comment once again. She added that since Raqesh was confused and she knew the game, the actress took over for both of them. "In that process, I was seen as bossy," Shamita said.
The actress said that she genuinely liked Raqesh. He, on the other hand, said that he liked her vibes and it was good that they got to know each other better everyday.
Raqesh however adds that their hearts aren't broken. He justifies that in some relations, one person could make a cloudy judgement. The actor adds that the same person could have clarity when playing alone.
Putting a stop to all speculations, Raqesh and Shamita say that they will always support each other. However, they refuse to sacrifice the trophy for one another.
Raqesh has set his mind on leaving the game. He refuses to discuss anything further with Shamita on the show but promises to do so outside it.
