Bigg Boss 15 contestant and television personality Rakhi Sawant recently addressed her separation with her husband and fellow contestant Ritesh Singh. In an interview with ETimes, the 43-year-old revealed that she had an intuitive feeling days before the duo parted ways. 

“I felt he was staying in my house only to be at the grand finale. Bigg Boss ke contract mein hain (It is in the Bigg Boss contract) that you have to pay Rs. 2 crore if you don’t attend the Grand Finale. Besides, he was not touching me or kissing me in front of the media. Only I was kissing him. He is a shy person, lekin un baaton se zaroor jyaada lagne laga tha (but these things gave me an inkling),” she said.

Elucidating the sudden separation, she added, “I didn’t call it off. It was his decision. He was with me on Friday throughout. We woke up on Sunday very normally. Suddenly, he started packing his bags and said that he wants to separate from me as his legal issues (with his wife) have become too much. God knows who he spoke to during those morning hours that led him to take this step.”

“Well, I still love Ritesh. I have loved him truly. I shall wait for him for about a year if he wants to come back. I just took my car and drove off for a long drive. Back home, I am now constantly eating. I am feeling very depressed,” she said in the interview. 

Sawant shared that she has been receiving ample support from friends, including actors Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Kashmera Shah, Mahima Chaudhary, and Pratik Sehajpal.
