Apart from being a model and actress, Arshi Khan is known as one of the most controversial contestants of season 11 of television reality show ‘Bigg Boss’. While she had created a huge storm in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house during and even after her stay as a contestant, surprisingly, she could not make it to the top 5. However, the reality show has given her immense popularity. Before gaining limelight from ‘Bigg Boss’ last year, Arshi had made news back in 2015 for making a controversial statement about Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi.
The model and actress had said that she had slept with Afridi and her statement created a huge uproar in the media. She had mentioned this in a tweet which can be read below:
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.

Later, in an interview, she had claimed that she was in a relationship with the Pakistani cricketer. Around the same time, she had also expressed the desire of marrying Afridi and said that she respected him a lot.
But now, Arshi Khan has admitted her tweet and statements about Afridi were a mistake.
She will soon appear on the television chat show ‘Juzz Baat’ along with former Bigg Boss contestant and her close friend Rakhi Sawant.
