Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 10 has a cricket connection this year. One of the commoner contestants is none other than Akansha Sharma, estranged wife of Yuvraj Singh’s younger brother Zorawar Singh.
As the show began with a bang on Sunday night, Salman Khan welcomed a bunch of contestants whom he called “India wale”. While many of those were interesting (Lokesh Kumari and Om Swami to name two), there was one who got everybody asking, “But which cricketer is she related to?” The contestant is none other than Akanksha Sharma and the cricketer is Yuvraj.
What everyone is wondering is what went wrong with Akanksha and Zorawar’s marriage. She herself revealed in the Bigg Boss house that she left, or rather ran away from her marital home because of her mother-in-law. And the lady in question is none other than Yuvraj and Zorawar’s mother Shabnam.
Akanksha Sharma, who is from Gurgaon, married Zorawar in 2014 but their marriage didn’t last long. While Akanksha said she had no problem with her husband or Yuvraj, she could not deal with her mother-in-law. She finally left and will soon get a divorce. She now wants to start her life afresh inside the Bigg Boss house. In answer to Salman’s question about her purpose of coming on Bigg Boss to which she replied that she wants to get a new lease of life after a bad marriage.
