After months of speculations on whether he even exists and if actor Rakhi Sawant is actually married, her husband Ritesh has finally come out in the media and talked about it all. Confirming that he is a businessman from the UK, Ritesh told SpotBoye that he is blessed to have married Rakhi, calling her “God’s gift” to him.
I am a very simple man, who goes to work at 9 am and is home by 6 pm. I know there are some people who don’t believe that I exist, when Rakhi announced her marriage. But here I am, talking to you.
How is married life going?
Absolutely fine. Rakhi may be a different person in front of the camera, but she is a wonderful person at heart.
Anything you want to change about her?
Nothing. I am blessed. Rakhi is God’s gift to me. I have never seen a woman like her. I think she is superior than me.
One thing you would never want to change about her?
Her outspokenness. She is very frank and I think that’s a great virtue.
Why are not coming out in front of the media?
Why should I? What I am going to get? Something or the other controversial will be unnecessarily written, that’s all na? See, I am a very private person (pauses)
How does it matter whether what people think about my existence? Let them believe or not. I have a family. Rakhi has a family. We are both happy. That’s all that matters.
So, are you saying you will never come out?
Of course, I will but in due course.
Was there an initial resistance by your parents when you told them that you want to marry Rakhi?
Hmmm… well, they did have a question or two on how she will cope up with family life. But there was no resistance per se.
Rakhi told us in her interview that you have told her to not do bold scenes in movies…
That’s right. She is married now, she has a new life. Who would like his wife to go bold on screen? BY the way whatever she told you in that interview was true to every word. 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.
Do you intervene in what Rakhi should wear?
Nope, she has all the freedom in choosing her set of clothes.
The all-important question: Is Rakhi pregnant?
Not yet, but she will soon be.
I want two kids. I have a gut feeling that my first will be a daughter and the second one will be a son.

Asked if he has indeed asked Rakhi to avoid “bold scenes” in movies, he said, “That’s right. She is married now, she has a new life. Who would like his wife to go bold on screen? By the way whatever she told you in that interview was true to every word. 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.” Expressing hopes for two kids, he also said Rakhi is “not yet” pregnant, “but she will soon be”.
Rakhi had posted pics decked up in wedding attire and soon dismissed it as a photoshoot when rumours mills claimed she got married. However, she announced in August that she actually got married with a UK-based NRI and avoided speaking about it. “Yes, I got married on July 20. Actually, main darr gayi thhi. I wanted to have a quiet, hidden wedding,” Rakhi had then said.
