Raqesh was the most favourite amongst the girls on the premiere night as almost everyone initially took his name, but in the game of Stay Connected, Raqesh formed a connection with Shamita Shetty. Pratik Sehajpal walked out of the house taking the briefcase which was the direct entry into the Salman Khan hosted Bigg Boss 15 house. Pratik said he always wanted to enter Bigg Boss 15 and hence chose to quit the show.
From the first week itself, the pair had several fights and disagreements sometimes due to Shamita’s strong headed nature and mostly because of Raqesh’s bond with fellow housemate Divya Agarwal. The two even decided to break the connection as Raqesh felt 'suffocating' in the bond and Shamita was offended by his nature. However, they kissed and patched up. During the course of the show, the two developed feelings for each other and have decided to see if their love survives the test of time in the outside world. In his journey Raqesh was even termed ‘sexist’, spineless by host Karan Johar and the actor was deeply hurt by his comments and even decided to leave the game. However, with the help of his friends Divya Agarwal, Shamita Shetty and Nishant Bhat, Raqesh managed to stay in the game. He also opened up about his divorce with ex-wife Ridhi Dogra in front of Shamita Shetty. He also on the show revealed that he is dyslexic and a slow learner. "I was slow in studies," he said.
