Some things were not going well in my life and I was depressed. I wanted to speak to someone who is not from my profession or known. I send ‘Hi’ to her and she blocked me.”

He added that some days later after that incident, Ritesh again messaged Rakhi from some other number and at that moment, she answered. Rakhi continued,

That time I was depressed. I had a boyfriend, who I learnt is a don. He was a loan shark and I was scared of my life. So I was seeking help from him and wanted to get married.”

I told him not to accept it, otherwise, he will lose his job.”

I was her fan from the day I saw her in her interview with Prabhu Chawla. And, I have seen almost all her work till date.”

I think it is totally my fault and mistake and my selfish nature that I kept my identity under wraps. I always had this fear that after revealing my relationship and identity in front of everyone because of bad humour, my shares can get affected. This was my selfish nature.”

He extended,

I had two-three defence projects in the past and I could not reveal my identity. It would have hit me very badly. We got married all of a sudden, we met, liked each other and got married. We had not planned anything. Now, I am prepared and can openly tell the world that Rakhi Sawant is my wife. I feel nothing is more important to me than Rakhi at this point of time. Hence, I am ready to take this risk.”
