‘Bigg Boss OTT’ actor-couple Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty made their relationship official recently on Instagram.
Raqesh, who joined Shamita in a LIVE session on Instagram, answered a “very naughty” question by a fan.
The actor, who has an artistic side was asked how he’d visualize Shamita if he were to paint her.
Raqesh said, “That is a very naughty question, by the way. I think I would like to paint her standing by the beach, with the sea in front of her and the breeze brushing through her hair, maybe a flowy dress. I think I would like to capture her on the sand, looking at the sea,” to which Shamita replied, “Awww, that’s beautiful.”
Shamita also added on what she finds attractive about Raqesh. “For me, it was Raqesh’s simplicity. That is what attracted me to him,” she said.
Although Raqesh and Shamita appeared to have conducted the LIVE session from different locations, it was later revealed that they were actually together.
When a user asked if they live together, Shamita said, “No”, with Raqesh adding, “Right now, we are for the interview. Nothing beyond that.”
Raqesh and Shamita, who fans fondly address as #ShaRa, were spotted at the latter’s sister Shilpa Shetty's restaurant, Bastian, in Worli last week.
The actress later took to her Instagram stories and re-shared shared a picture (posted by Raqesh) of holding hands with the caption, “U and I.”
