EXCLUSIVE: Raqesh Bapat on BB 15: Don’t want it to be about ShaRa or spoil Shamita Shetty’s game
Raqesh Bapat, the ‘Ra to Shara’ entered the Bigg Boss 15 house after a much-talked-about journey inside Bigg Boss OTT house. Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty met in the OTT house and since then have become inseparable. One of the major highlights yet again this season is their relationship and with Raqesh Bapat entering the house now, all eyes will be set on him and Shamita Shetty. Raqesh spoke to Bollywood Bubble before heading inside and clarified that it was a deliberate attempt from his side to not enter Bigg Boss 15 early so that it doesn’t interfere with Shamita’s game.
Raqesh told Bollywood Bubble, “As far as Shara is concerned, I honestly want Shamita to play Alone and that is why I refused the show in the beginning. I did not want it to be about Shara. I wanted her to be stronger and play the game, and I did not get affected by the relationship as far as game is concerned. That was a deliberate concern. Of course, our bond remains unchanged and will continue but I will not interfere with her game. I don’t want me to be the focus. I want her to really do well and not spoil her game at all.”
Elaborating on what he loves about Shamita, Raqesh added, “She has been honest, she is a girl with strong opinion, that is what I like about her. She is what she is inside. I like people who are caring, and yet blatant when they are upset. She is very real and that is what really connects with it.”

When asked if he felt that Shara’s bond worked against them in the game and influenced it, Raqesh explained, “We know what our connection is, it is pretty real. Our bond is our bond, I don’t want it to be hindrance in our game. Yes, I want her to do well and me to do well. I want it to be organic like it was before. I don’t want that to change at all.”
Raqesh Bapat has entered the Bigg Boss 15 house this weekend.
