Ridhi mentioned that there is a lot of ‘calm’ when it comes to her relationship with Raqesh Bapat.
“Of course, you tap into emotions you have felt in past but I have healed. I don’t carry anything. There is a lot of calm there. We are very much in touch, Raq and I. In fact, he texted me this morning to wish my nephew a happy birthday,” Ridhi shared and added, “There is no similarity between Aastha’s journey and mine.”
About facing judgement, she said that she didn’t care about judgements. “I just knew how judgemental people were. Honestly, when people were judging me, I didn’t take any of it but I did see a pattern of conditioning. I actually sat down and wondered ‘we are screwed, they have no idea.”
