When Bigg Boss 10 kicked off with its first episode on Monday night, not many people were aware of the fact that Delhi-based Akansha Sharma is related to cricketer Yuvraj Singh. During the premiere episode of BB10, Akansha revealed that she was married to Yuvraj’s younger brother Zorawar. Though, she didn’t divulge in much of the details, Akansha did mention that her marriage was the lowest point in her life and also blamed her mother-in-law for her failed wedding.
While her revelations have raised a lot of eyebrows towards Yuvraj’s family, his mother has finally reacted to the allegations made by her estranged bahu and have referred it as a publicity gimmick.
Yuvraj’s mother Shabnam, while talking to a leading daily stated that there is no truth in Akansha’s allegations.
“She could have done this earlier also but she didn’t. Just because she has got a platform now, she is saying all this”, Shabnam said.
Mrs. Singh further stated that that it was them who had filed the divorce in the first place two years ago and had some strong reasons to take the drastic step. In fact she also said that if Sharma had any claims of cruelty by the Singh family she could have filed the case back then or could have taken some action, instead of gossiping about it on a popular show.
“Somebody has to take the brunt, so it’s fine if it’s me. God bless, is all I can say to her. Even I have enough to talk and share my side of the story. But I just don’t want to get into any mud-slinging. She’s also someone’s daughter and she’s doing what she’s being instructed to”, Shabnam further added.
Akansha was married to Zorawar in 2014 but their relation didn’t last for long as the couple parted ways within four months of their wedding. The estranged couple has been fighting for their divorce since then and the case is yet to be settled.
Interestingly, while Akansha’s revelations about her failed wedding might gain her some publicity on the show, it might land her in a legal trouble as well.
Shabnam revealed that Akansha and Zorawar’s divorce case is subjudice and they are not supposed to talk about it. Apparently, Akansha’s discussion about her impeding divorce case goes under the contempt of court.
“There’s a special petition I had filed. Anyone can understand the agenda here and everybody knows it. We are not allowed to speak on this matter”, Yuvraj’s mother was quoted saying.
On the other hand, Akansha has asserted that she has no grudges for her estranged husband Zorawar or his brother Yuvraj and doesn’t want any alimony from them as well.
The BB 10 contestant also stated that she wants to move on in her life with complete freedom.
