From Duryodhan to Ravan, he has played multiple roles of villains and it is good that he is trending because of his performance on Bigg Boss 13. Not everyone makes it to the trending list, and I am happy, people are loving him as sanskari playboy, villain and is getting appreciated by his fans too. He has already got 100 fans pages made on his name. I am happy that he is moving in the right direction."

If he is making two people lose their focus from the game and is making them fight for him, then I would say he is a real winner for him. I am thoroughly enjoying myself while watching him on the show."
Paras Chhabra is famous for his ‘playboy’ image and is quite famous among girls. Talking about being jealous after seeing Paras with other girls, Akanksha said, “We have been in a relationship since last two and a half-a-years and we are mature individuals. We are not teenagers to get jealous or affected by such petty things. I want to be his strength and not weakness. I don't have any qualms even if he is flirting with anyone as I know about his strategy and game plans. I know he is mine and I don't need to worry about anything."

Bigg Boss is all about making strategies and game planning. The Calendar Girl actress, Akanksha Puri opened up about Paras’ strategies on the show and said, “Paras has done two reality shows and he is playing his game very smartly. I am happy he is not holding himself back and is going all out, exactly the way we had decided. He was offered the show in June and since then we have been thinking about the different and difficult situations that he will be put in. He has watched all the seasons of Bigg Boss and knows all the moves. Whenever I watch BB 13, during the 1-hour duration I see Paras for about 50 which itself proves his popularity on the show. Be it BB promos, uncut version or the episode, Paras is everywhere. He is providing entertainment for which he has been brought in. Nobody wants to see Paras Chhabra as a saint on the show, everyone wants to see him the way he is on the show right now. He is coming as one of the strongest contestants."
It was in October 2018, when Akanksha had officially confirmed her relationship with Paras in an interview with BollywoodLife. She had said, “It’s been two years since we are together. I’m very secretive about my personal life. I never spoke about our relationship; however, Paras was open about it. We were together for a long time. However, my private nature got between us. This became a little issue between us, as he misconstrued my secretiveness as I’m not sure of the relationship. He started having trust issues as I used to behave differently with him in the public as well.”
During their breakup phase, Paras Chhabra was rumoured to be dating Naagin 3 actress, Pavitra Punia. However, the two had always denied any such speculations. Akanksha had also spoken about these speculations and had said, “That’s when he found this female. Although, he was quite clear that he wasn’t looking for anything serious. And he came across a girl who had the same view. He used to be continuously in touch with me. He used to send their photos only to irritate me. They were deliberately doing all the PDA to make me jealous and get the news and the buzz. Which both got eventually.”
Talking about their relationship, Akanksha Puri had once stated, “We are really different as a person. While I’m very private and low-key, he is a little controversial. That has always been my concern though. However, with this, I’ve spoken about my relationship for the first time. Everyone is very happy. Even the family is happy. Enough of running away from relationships. I’m sure he is my man.” (Also Read: This Ludhiana Bride Wore 3 Celeb Designer Outfits For Her Wedding, Her Bridal Lehenga Is Stunning)
