Paras Chhabra, who is currently seen in Bigg Boss 13, is quite pally with the female contestants of the house. While he has already made headlines for his relationship with Shehnaz Gill and friendship with Mahira Sharma, his real-life girlfriend of two and a half years, Akanksha Puri, remains unaffected.
Before entering the house, Paras had told TimesofIndia that he is going to be friendly with other female contestants and even flirt with them as a strategy to win favours. He was confident that this won’t affect his relationship with Akanksha as they had talked about it beforehand.
What Paras is doing in the house is purely for entertainment. He had said, “I have prepared Akansha not to believe in my link-up rumours if they start floating when I enter the show. I have told her whatever I do inside the house, I will always be her man. I am a one-woman man. If I flirt on the show, it will be purely for entertainment or camera.”
Akanksha is not affected by Paras receiving attention from Mahira or Shehnaz. She told TOI that he is doing a good job on the show by making other girls fight for him. She said that she is enjoying herself watching him on the show.
Akanksha is happy that Paras is at the centre of the show and providing entertainment to the viewers. The Splitsvilla 5 winner is one of the strongest contestants. She also revealed he is well-prepared for the difficult situations as he had watched all the previous season of Bigg Boss before entering the house.
When Paras said on the show that he tried to break-up thrice with Akanksha, it came as a surprise to the latter. She told TOI, “Yes, I saw the episode and Paras’ statement about our break-up came as a surprise to me. Honestly, I wasn’t prepared for it. When the offer of Bigg Boss 13 came to him, we had discussed about several things, but not this. If this is his strategy or what, I have no idea. I don’t want to be judgemental. I feel it will be too early to comment on it. Right now I am watching it as a viewer, when he is out only then I can talk to him and understand why he said this.”
Paras and Akanksha apparently started dating in 2017. The two faced compatibility issues and took a break from each other. In the middle of it all, Paras briefly dated television actress Pavitra Punia. However, the break gave Akanksha a perspective. She started to miss Paras, and eventually the two got back together.
In an interview, Akanksha shared that Paras got together with Pavitra only to make her envious with his PDA pictures. And it made her confess that she missed him all the while. Paras, too, called Pavitra just a friend. Akanksha and Paras are now madly in love and he even got her name inked this February.
