So, the Akaknsha Sharma-Shabnam Singh war does not seem to end, and in fact, the revelations made by the Bigg Boss contestant, Akanksha Sharma (who is now evicted from the house) and Shabnam Singh are just getting brazen and murkier each day.
The last thing we reported to you was how Akanksha accused Yuvraj’s mother, Shabnam Singh, for destroying her marriage to Yuvraj’s brother Zorawar Singh. Additionally, we also told you how Yuvi’s mom, Shabnam, sternly rubbished all claims made by her former daughter-in-law (read more details here) and also divulged some fresh details.
Having read and reported both sides of the story, we thought, we were done giving you insights on the saas-bahu mess, but looks like the bahu, Akanksha Sharma still has a lot to say about her sasuma and her 4-month-old marriage to Zorawar Singh.
Before we get there, Shabnam had previously alleged that Akanksha had substance abuse issues, to which, Akanksha famously stated:
“As far as substance abuse goes, it was there in their family too. Whatever I did was with them. I smoked pot (marijuana) 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.”
After her eviction from the Bigg Boss house, Akanska Sharma slid out lot more dirty details in an interview with SpotboyE. Be it her physical intimacy with her estranged husband or the thought of a child in this messy picture, the lady has spilled the beans like never before.
About the consummation of her marriage, Akanksha said:
“Yes, it did not. If it had, maybe I would have had a child and since I was being constantly nagged by my mother-in-law (Shabnam) to consummate my marriage, main toh phas jati na? I am not out to defame her, what she did in her personal time is her life; I respect a woman's choices.”
Talking about her equation with her husband (whom she was not blaming for her failed marriage), she said:
“Zoravar and I did not connect on any level- neither mentally nor physically. Wherever we went out, my mother-in-law tagged along. Suddenly she would say 'Haath pakdo, Kiss karo. Kya aisa hota hai kya?' These things are supposed to happen naturally.”
Speaking about her alleged sexless marriage, Akanksha said:
“There has to be some comfort level and connect between a man and woman. He had to make me feel like a woman isn't it? He has to make me feel loved. I couldn't go and pounce on him and say 'Let's have sex'. He was supposed to be the man I should have fallen back on but... We slept on the same bed and kept pillows between us. And he used to snore very badly. So often, we ended up sleeping on different floors.”
Further explaining her equation with her estranged husband, Zorawar, she said:
"There has to be some attraction between two people which leads them to have sex. Zoravar could never man up to it.”
She also added:
“The man wants to play PS4 with his driver in his spare time and even wants to sit with the driver in the front. How will intimacy develop between him and his wife?”
Talking about how Shabnam Singh was forcing her to have sex with Zorawar, she stated:
“Meanwhile, my mother-in-law was forcing me to have sex with Zoravar. Sex is not a chore. Sex is not a responsibility. We are not living in medieval ages where sex is a compulsory product of marriage. What's the difference between prostitution and having sex against your wishes? I decided to leave the house after 4 months.”
Talking about the issues, Shabnam had, she said:
“If I was listening to some songs and going for a bath a little late, she had a problem- itna that she used to call up my mother and complain about it. If she went out of the house, servants spied on me and told me what to do and what to not do. They even took away my mobile. She even had problems with my WhatsApp DPs, imagine!”
Meanwhile, Shabnam Singh is planning to take legal action against her former daughter-in-law, Akanksha Sharma for defaming and maligning their family’s name. Shabnam’s lawyer, Daman Bir Sobti was quoted as saying:
“Why do you think she got eliminated? It’s not just because she wasn’t playing the game well but it was due to the fact that she was discrediting Yuvraj, who is a national hero. Obviously, there was public outrage as his fans didn’t like it and voted her out. Yuvi has got a huge fan following and who’s she? She’s merely hopping on Yuvi’s fame and was lying all the time. We will take lawful recourse.”
Well, this whole saga has surely taken a volcanic shape and all we can say is, washing your dirty linen in public is not always a good idea!
