The Kangana Ranaut-hosted programme ‘Lock Upp’ is becoming increasingly fascinating. Mandana Karimi was just ejected from the show. One of the most talked-about finalists was her. She made news for exposing a stunning fact about her personal life, in addition to her conflicts with other participants. Mandana had disclosed during her spell in Lock Upp that a filmmaker had cheated on her and she was pregnant. She has now disclosed in a recent interview that it was not Anurag Kashyap who dumped her.
She told ETimes TV that while she won’t name the director, it isn’t Anurag Kashyap.
She said, “I definitely want to add here that it’s not the name that’s going around, which is Anurag Kashyap. Anurag was my friend and we are still friends. I have seen the headlines. It’s not done. It’s very unethical and unfortunate. I want to repeat again here, it’s a sad state of news and headlines – picking names, putting words into people’s mouths.”
Besides that, she also clarified that the filmmaker who cheated on her wasn’t her friend.
She said, “I never said those words. Yes, I had a secret which I shared on the show, exclusively. The format of the show required me to share one. I didn’t become an actress yesterday. I understand that an actress’ life becomes a public story as her personal life dominates in the media. The words get twisted while writing and I have taken everything – drama and headlines – with a pinch of salt. And I don’t know how people have come up with some names. How can people play with my names? That’s the sad reality of social media and news. The person whom I had a relationship with, was not my friend.”
