Former Bigg Boss candidate Sapna Choudhary has reacted to reports claiming that she is dead. The singer-dancer-actress has become the latest victim of a death hoax, with reports claiming she died in a traffic accident.
Speaking to a major daily, Sapna said the false reports had upset her family, with family members receiving disturbing calls from everywhere.
“It was very upsetting for my family. They didn’t know how to do it. In this business you always come across all kinds of rumors but something like that was weird. I wonder how anyone can spread something like this because you are not only affecting the affected person but their family as well. Imagine how it would feel for a parent to receive a call like this, where people ask about their daughter’s death, ”she said.
Sapna has acted in a few regional films such as Veerey Ki Wedding and Nanu Ki Jaanu. However, she gained national popularity by appearing in the 11th season of Bigg Boss. The season also featured Arshi Khan and Vikas Gupta. The season was won by Shilpa Shinde while Hina Khan was the runner-up.
In 2018, a few candidates gathered at the wedding of Sapna’s brother. Videos and photos from the wedding revealed that Arshi, Aksash Dadlani and Mehjabi Siddiqui were attending the celebrations.
While Arshi Khan was seen dancing with Sapna on singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Rashke Qamar, Akash Dadlani and Mehjabi Siddiqui were seen partying with Sapna and his family in social media posts from the time.
