MUMBAI: Bigg Boss 13 contestant Paras Chhabra has remained in headlines for his bitter relationship with ex Akanksha Puri. Now, the BB13 finalist revealed that his former lover tried to contact him after the controversial show was over.
Speaking at an interview, Paras said, "Akanksha tried to contact me after I came out of Bigg Boss, but I have been busy from the very next day with my new show Mujhse Shaadi Karoge. Also, there is no point in clarifying anything now so it is better that we break up. I want to remove the tattoo of her name on my hand but have been busy with the show."
Paras' proximity with co-contestant Mahira Sharma has been considered a major reason for his breakup with Puri. However, Chhabra has always claimed that their relationship was bitter even before his entrance in the Bigg Boss house but he did not want to start the show with any negativity.
"My relationship with Akanksha was going through a rough phase and it would have ended anytime. When I was offered the show, during a fight she told me that ‘now that you have got this show, so you will leave me’. As I was coming for the show I did not want to do anything negative (break-up) in my life so I left it on hold. Also, I told her that ‘if I get a girl on the show, I will move on’," he added further.
The couple dated for three long years but had to end on a bad note even when Paras was on the reality show. Paras even has bad-mouthed Akanksha several times on the national television whereas she opted not to say anything bad about him in her interviews.
Currently, Paras is doing another Colors reality show 'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge' where he is in search of a bride. Another BB13 inmate Shehnaaz Gill is also on a lookout for a groom on the show.
