Bigg Boss 10 start was a controversial one. Where contestants like VJ Bani and Priyanka Jagga argued, another contestant Akansha Sharma, made some critical statement about the well known family to which she belonged. The contestant from Gurgaon, revealed that she was cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s former sister-in-law.
Akansha shared a marital relationship with Zoraver, Yuvraj's younger brother,for four months. However the couple is no longer in the relationship for the past two and half years.
Akansha told that there were actually no problems with Zorav er or even Yuvraj, but only with her mother-in-law Shabnam Singh. When asked by Salman, she confidently told that her sole purpose to head to Bigg Boss 10 was to start afresh after her bad marriage and to win the show. She also told that she would soon get divorce.
As is obvious, Shabnam Singh is not happy with the "revelations" made by Akansha on the reality show.
“This is really upsetting to our family,” Shabnam told. “First of all, the matter is sub judice and neither Akanksha, nor any of us, are allowed to talk about it. It is contempt of court; the matter will come up for hearing in some time.”
Shabnam's statements make it clear that Akansha might just be in desire of raking up the past for publicity. “I don’t know why she had to come up with it now, it’s about a three-year-old issue,” Shabnam said. “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 further told: “We were the ones who filed for divorce because we had some really strong reasons. There’s a special petition I had filed in the High Court; it’s a case of blackmail. If she had to take any action or say something about any alleged cruelty from my side, she could have done that earlier as well, or filed a case back then.”
Shabnam also told that Akansha was not in favour of divorce during the court hearing when the family was present. “But now, on national television, she’s saying the exact opposite,” Shabnam pointed out. “Anyone can understand the agenda here… We’ll let the law take its course. I have faith in the judiciary.”
Just beacuse Yuvraj's name is related to the issue, that it is gathering so much publicity, Shabnam rued. “Which house doesn’t have issues? Which house is perfect? Just because it concerns Yuvraj’s family, the matter has become a talking point. People should respect our privacy; nobody has the right to know about our personal matters. We are a reputed family, we are dignified people and I’m not guilty. My son and I need to be protected. I’m not going out and speaking about Akanksha — I care about her dignity,” she said, adding, “Let the truth come out, and if I have done anything wrong, I will admit it.”
