Amar Upadhyay’s family is extremely hurt and furious by Bigg Boss contestant Akashdeep Saigal’s unsavory remarks and defamatory attacks on the personal life of the actor and plan to initiate legal action against Akashdeep, informs Amar’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
In this week’s episode of Bigg Boss, Akashdeep (also known as Sky), intensified his scathing attacks on Amar, who has been a well-known television personality, famous for his character of Mihir Virani in Ekta Kapoor’s Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
Behind the actor’s back, Akash was seen bitching about Amar to contestants Juhi Parmar and Shradha Sharma, uttering spiteful and vicious things about him.
“Jo aadmi (Amar) apni biwi aur bachchon ka nahin ho sakta… yahan par woh Vida (Samadzai) ke saath apne gulchhade uda raha hai… woh aadmi kiska ho sakta hai?… Usse pata nahin ke kaise dikhega woh wahan pe,” said Akashdeep on Bigg Boss. “Mereko toh pata bhi nahin tha ke iske do bachche hai… iski shaadi hui hai! Press waalon ne mujhe bola toh I was shocked,” he added.
“What Akashdeep Saigal is saying is totally false and amounts to slander and defamation. Amar’s family is concerned and upset over such incorrect and nasty remarks which vilify and malign their image on national television. They plan to take legal action on Akashdeep,” retorts the actor’s publicist.
“Amar is a very happy and content family man, having abounding love for his wife Hetal and their children. He is participating in the reality show as a contestant and has not flirted with Vida Samadzai, as insinuated by Akashdeep. In fact, after being evicted from Bigg Boss, Vida has had a chat with Amar’s wife and they have had a hearty laugh, discussing the nitty-gritties of the show,” states Bhagwagar.
The PR specialist also points out that Akashdeep is lying about being unaware of Amar being a married man. “Akashdeep is not only aware of Amar’s martial status, but has also met Amar with his wife at a party and interacted with them together before. Amar’s family is stunned to see Akashdeep continuously indulging in repulsive misleading statements and such character assassination on the show.”
