One of the most controversial reality shows on Indian television, Bigg Boss, is back with Season 11 that went on air on October 1. However, one of the most controversial contestants this year is perhaps, Arshi Khan, a model and an aspiring actor, who has been embroiled in several scandalous events, in the past.
Arshi, a Bhopal-born girl, has done several nude photoshoots, including one, where she pasted pictures of Pakistani cricketers on her breasts, and another shoot where she painted the Pakistani flag on her bust and lower body. While her Urdu dialect and obsession with Pakistani cricketers make many believe that she is a Pakistani citizen, but according to reports, she is of Indian origin.
The 11th Season of Bigg Boss has started and the show has already sparked the first of controversies. What we want to focus on is controversies favorite child Arshi Khan’s obsession with Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi. Once again, she referred to him as her ‘ mehboob ‘in the show.
However, further questions on her so-called lover from co-contestant Shilpa Shinde went unanswered. However, she received no further answer on the subject. It is reported that the last call she made before she entered the house was to Afridi; a call that went unanswered. Reportedly, she was quite upset when the call went unanswered.
In an unseen segment on Voot, which is an official app for all the shows of Colors, Arshi can be seen declaring her love for creating controversies. Arshi, also an aspiring actress, set the record straight and says she likes to provoke people – something she has been doing for a long time now.
“Shahid Afridi ke saath toh mera bahut masla raha hai. Shahid Afridi toh mere Mehboob rahe hai. Mehboob hai. Lekin humara rishta bahut achcha hai. Main unki bahut izzat karti hu. Bahut ache insaan hai,” Arshi said in the clip that has been uploaded on Voot.
In fact, Arshi, who had also been in news for her nude photoshoots, took to her official Twitter account to give an insight into her alleged relationship with Afridi. Yes, I had sex with Afridi! Do I need the Indian media’s permission to sleep with someone? It’s my personal life. For me it was love,” she had tweeted. A fatwa was issued against her by a mufti from a Madrassa in Pakistan.
She had also claimed that she was three months pregnant and that Afridi had accepted her and their relationship. However, she later herself rubbished the reports. “Did I ever say I was pregnant with Afridi’s baby? Actually, to set matters straight, it was a false alarm. A proper test has confirmed now, that I am not pregnant. Even I was shocked and surprised because I had not made out for a long time, yet I skipped my periods for two months in a row and when I just ran an OTC (over the counter) test, it came out positive. So, I was scared like hell. But a detailed test showed that I just had some hormonal issues,” she was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune.
Reportedly, Arshi Khan posed completely nude for Maneesh Singh’s film, Green Terror, where she plays a female terrorist, who is used by her handlers in Pak to seduce Indian military officials and leak out sensitive information about military assets in North India.
