Mumbai: Not many people in the country know about 25-year-old Gurgaon girl Akansha Sharma who is much into controversy after she disclosed on the premier night of Bigg Boss that she tied the knot with Zorawar, who is the younger brother of the cricketer Yuvraj Singh. While giving her introduction to the viewers, Akansha said that the relationship lasted just for 4 months, after she broke up and left the house. However she did not reveal too many details but said in a nut-shell and accused her mother-in-law, Shabnam Singh, of ill-treating her and blamed her for the failed marriage.
Talking to a renounced media group, Shabnam Singh says, “First of all, this matter is sub judice and she (Akansha) is not allowed to speak. It 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.” Reacting to indirect allegations Akansha made on the show, Shabnam adds, “Somebody has to take the brunt, so it’s fine if it’s me. God bless, is all I can say to her. Let her go on and say what she has to say. 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.”
Taken aback with the fact that Akansha has decided to speak-up after two-and-a-half-years, Shabnam wonders, “She could have done this earlier but instead she decided to speak all this now just because she has got a platform now”. “Those who know me well it’s not that I would do something like that. People must know that we were the ones who first filed the divorce because we had some really strong reasons, so I had to do it. If she had to take any action or say something against any alleged cruelty from my side, she could have done that earlier as well or filed a case back then,” she adds.
Though the divorce is yet to be settled in the court it is left the viewers wonder if Akansha will reveal something more about the family in the show. While being introduced she said that she was depressed after this marriage but now she wants freedom, she also further stated that she was married thinking that it’s a cricketer home but was let down. However, she has no malice against her ex-husband and Yuvraj Singh and claims no money from Yuvraj Singh’s family.
