Arshi Khan’s ‘sex tweet’ on Shahid Afridi: Bigg Boss 11 contestant clarifies her controversial statement


Bigg Boss 11 contestant and Begum Jaan Arshi Khan finally comes ahead to clear the controversial statement on her Twitter about Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi. The side-swept bang seductress had garnered a lot of attention in 2015 for tweeting, “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.” And just within seconds the explicit tweet was an invitation to major uproar.

In an interview before participating the star studded reality show, Arshi had claimed to have called up the cricketer. However, her presence and the reason for her to be a contestant was in the news and Khan may have learnt her lesson.

This is how she decided to come clean over it. Rajeev Khandelwal’s talk show, Juzzbaat had Arshi Khan and Rakhi Sawant paired up for an episode where Arshi shared her view on the same, “I respect Mr Afridi a lot. He has done a lot for me. That tweet was a mistake and I should not have addressed him openly about such sensitive issues. Afridi Sahaab ke bahut ehsaan hai mujh par.”

Arshi was famous in the Bigg Boss house for her seductive nighties and did give some tough fight to other A-list celebrities in the house. Currently, she has found solace in her new BFF Rakhi Sawant and the two have set on a journey to paint the town red.
