Bigg Boss 14 has an array of issues and controversies going on inside the house right now but we also know how there is a constant noise outside the house too. We have already seen several debates and even fights between a range of people outside the house who support or doesn’t support a particular contestant or not.
However, if there is one person who has been aloof or rather entirely absent from coverage then that is Ritesh. For the uninitiated, Ritesh is Rakhi Sawant’s husband, who continues to be under the radar where not only has Sawant not revealed his face or personality to media but he also hasn’t come out himself.
Ritesh had an interview with SpotboyE where he supported his wife and also slammed the likes of Nikki Tamboli, her mother Pramila Tamboli and Manu Punjabi. He said, “I am curious to meet Nikki Tamboli’s mother in person and ask what language of my wife Rakhi she is finding cheap and vulgar? As a viewer, I myself follow the show and I don’t feel Rakhi has said anything which she is finding low level. In yesterday’s episode, Rakhi told Nikki, “Mardo ko kone mein le jaakar baithti hai chugalkahor.” Jab Nikki ko aisa karne mein bura nahi lag raha hai to Rakhi ka ye baat bolne par kyun bura lag raha hai? The whole world knows that Nikki has a habit of taking the guys in the side and making alliance for the game. She never does the same with girls that are present in the house, take them in a corner and speak or convince them to play with her in the game or make a group. And if Rakhi has said that same thing then what is making her mother feel wrong in it?”
He also added, “Rakhi already apologised for the abusive language she used during the duck task which has irked Nikki so much so that the very same moment Rakhi even touched her feet. However, I don’t see Rakhi at complete fault there because when the task was going on Rakhi was busy playing her own game at one side. Still, Nikki started getting physical with all the girls and started tearing their ducks. She went to Rakhi and started breaking her duck, pushing her, then obviously by default a person will say such thing. Nikki ne usko physically attack kiya but Rakhi ne nahi kiya aur aise mein uske muh se gaaliyan nikli to usne jhukkar maafi bhi maangi. But uske baad bhi she is behaving like this with Rakhi and making an issue out of it then it’s her attitude problem, not my wife’s.”
Talking about Punjabi, he also felt upset about his comment on her career and status, he said, “Nikki who has just done three south films and had started her career in 2019 is questioning Rakhi’s experience. I feel she should just go and read her Wikipedia and she herself will come to know what her achievements are. Rakhi is not just popular here but all over the world. That Manu Punjabi is asking Rakhi teri aukaat kya hai? Main poochta hoon uski apni aukaat kya hai? His turn over is just 1.3 million USD whereas I am 6 Billion owner and she is married to me. There is no comparison only. Kisi bhi insaan ki aukaat uske paise se nahi uske behaviour se hoti hai and they should understand that. He is not his lawyer, relative or so-called husband then why is he interfering? Which Rakhi has rightly asked him.”
