Actor Raqesh Bapat, who entered the Bigg Boss 15 house as a wild card participant has quit the show mid-way. He had some medical issues and was even hospitalized last week. While the rest of the housemates, including Shamita Shetty, thought that Raqesh would resume the show once he gets discharged, host Salman Khan announced on Sunday that he has quit.
Raqesh has now taken to his social media and addressed his fans via an open letter. Referring to his fans as ‘family’, he started, “I call all of you my family because this connection you and I have is truly by the heart. I feel blessed to have all of you in my life, sending me prayers, blessings, good wishes and so much positivity. Sometimes life throws curve balls at you at important junctures and such has been my case. Your love pulled me back into the Bigg Boss house and yet the stay was short lived because of health issues that cropped up.”
Talking further about his health issues, he wrote, “A health issue from 5 years ago has cropped up, unforeseen and painful. To all of you that have been asking, “I’m much better and in recovery and as all of you have rightly said health comes first!”
He then wrote, “Remember if it wasn’t for my health I would be entertaining you inside the house. I never wanted to leave without a proper goodbye but little did I know in that pain, that this would become my exit.”
Raqesh concluded his letter by saying, “Yet all I can say is this was one small part of the journey, our connection continues for a lifetime as I’m looking forward to being back on my feet soon to entertain all of you.”
People are sending him love and wishing for his speedy recovery in the comment section.
On the other hand, when Salman announced Raqesh’s exit, his ladylove Shamita was taken aback. She was later seen talking to her friend that whenever things get difficult, he tends to run away.
And now, Shamita too has stepped out of the Bigg Boss 15 house. She also quoted medical reasons but also said that she will be back soon.
