After all the allegations made by Akansha Sharma against Yuvraj Singh and his family on the sets of Bigg Boss, the cricketer’s mother has decided to finally take action against the contestant who was evicted from the hig reality show.
Shabnam Singh, in an interview to Firstpost, said she will be taking a ‘lawful recourse’ against Akansha for saying in an interview to Bollywood Life that Yuvraj and his younger brother Zoravar used to smoke pot with her during her brief marriage with the latter.
Shabnam’s lawyer, Daman Bir Sobti, said they will be filing a civil suit for damages and a criminal complaint for defamation. “We will take video footage from the Bigg Boss house for further proof. She (Akansha) has also been giving a lot of interviews post-eviction. Shabnam will be coming to Chandigarh to discuss the matter with me.”
“Shabnam is currently busy with Yuvraj’s wedding, but a lot of people have been calling her over this matter and we have to act fast,” he added.
Akansha spoke about the family’s “pot smoking habits” when told that Shabnam had alleged a few days ago that her estranged daughter-in-law had a history of substance abuse.
“As far as substance abuse goes, it was there in their family too,” the 25-year-old Gurgaon resident said in the interview. “Whatever I did was with them. I smoked pot with my husband. Yuvi also told me he smoked pot. It is a very common thing in the industry. My mother-in-law now needs to say something to justify herself.”
Akansha further said that her marriage with Zoravar lasted “just four months”, after which she decided to walk out of the house. They have been separated for two years now.
Akansha was evicted this Sunday from the Bigg Boss House.
Bigg Boss is scripted on the lines of the British television show Big Brother. The show’s format keeps participants locked inside a house for three months with no access to the outside world.
