And now, when Raqesh is out of the Bigg Boss house, he also slammed Kashmera for her ‘henpecked husband’ comment. Talking about the same, in an interview with PeepingMoon, the actor said, "I would say I'm not henpecked, I'm a caring husband because I always give my woman the space, the treatment, the respect and I don't cross that. And I treat my woman like a queen and that's what a man should do because there's love and a lot of caring so somewhere I like to treat my people special and it doesn't make you henpecked."

Talking further about his nature, the actor said that he ignored certain things and did certain things for the happiness of others. Talking about the same, Raqesh shared, "You bow down to certain levels just because you want to give them that love so that is not being henpecked. I've always been like this and it doesn't make me weak. It's not about not taking a stand, it's just that I ignore certain things and I do certain things for the person's happiness. Henpecked and all are just names, I know what I am."
