Mandana Karimi, an Iranian actress came to the limelight after her small stint in Bigg Boss House. The actress has worked in a few Bollywood movies and also on television. She recently got evicted from the reality show Lock Upp which is hosted by Kangana Ranaut.

In one of the episodes to save her from eviction, Mandana revealed a dark secret about her life. she said that during the lockdown she was feeling lost and was silent for months. The model and actress had separated from her husband after five months of marriage. She said that she could not trust men after her separation. She stated “I did have a secret relationship, it was not committed but it went on for a year and a half. My relationship was with a very well-known director who talks about women’s rights and independence of women in the outside world, how a woman should be strong.”

Mandana had also revealed in the show that she had gotten pregnant with the director’s child which she later had to abort. She said that the director did not expect her to conceive so easily at the age of 33 but she got pregnant and he backtracked.

However, as the model made her statement the netizens started linking her name with Anurag Kashyap. The users also found a connection to how Anurag Kashyap had helped the model during the lockdown. But now after being evicted from the show Mandana clarified that the director she was in a relationship with is not Anurag Kashyap. Mandana added that it is unethical and unfortunate that Anurag Kashyap’s name was linked as they are just good friends.
