The actor, who is a participant in the show with wife Riddhi Dogra, has injured his knee and has been advised to avoid dancing and other strenuous activities.

"The cartilage tissue in my knee joint has got damaged a bit, so the doctor has advised me to take rest. No dancing, no cycling, no running," Raqesh told reporters here on Tuesday.

"I am being a bit careful now as health comes first. Besides, there are other projects as well, so I have to concentrate on them also. So it is very important to be fit now," he added.

Besides "Nach Baliye 6", Raqesh is also working on "Qubool Hai", which is aired on Zee TV.

His wife Riddhi says they will back out of ‘Nach Baliye’ if there is any kind of stress on Raqesh while dancing.

"Generally, health is important. I hope that you all (audience) also pray that Raqesh gets well soon so that we can go forward in 'Nach Baliye'. His health is very important and if there will be some kind of stress, we will have to back out, which we don't want to do but we (may) have to," she said.

"Nach Baliye 6" went on air on November 9 last year with eleven contesting celebrity couples on Star Plus. It is being judged by actress Shilpa Shetty, director Sajid Khan and choreographer Terence Lewis.
