Akansha also added that the main reason for her failed marriage was Shabnam’s ill-treatment. She also revealed that she did not have any issues with her husband or Yuvraj but her mother-in-law. Speaking about her marriage life she added,”Firstly, it wasn’t a marriage in the right sense. I was married only in paper. There was nothing in that relationship. I haven’t lied and I am pretty sure of whatever I have said. Nothing happened in my marriage. I am not backing off from what I said. Saying that matter is sub-judice is the safest thing to do.”
