Bhojpuri diva and BigBoss 13 contestant Akshara Singh, who was in news earlier for her relationship with a Bhojpuri star, revealed her ex not only tried to end her career but he also hired boys to chase her with acid bottles. In her recent interview with TOI she opened up about being in depression due to her personal life and troubled past.
Akshara said, “I was getting so many threats that he would kill me or destroy my career but after my father’s conversation with me I gained so much strength that I stopped caring about anything. I did not even fear for my life. I had faced so many thing by then ki maut ka khauff he khatam hogaya tha. I felt kya Karoge maroge he na… chalo maar lo. My ex sent few boys with acid bottles in their hand and also tried to destroy my career.”
She also mentioned how her parents supported her during this phase, “I was living a very humiliated life because of the other relationship. My parents supported me a lot during that phase. From the place I come, usually parents don’t support their girls to join the entertainment industry. And top of that if something like this (troubled relationship) happens, they just boycott their girls. But I feel I am very lucky that my parents supported me and did not throw me out of the house. I was living a very humiliated life and so was my family. I would sense that they were feeling terrible but they never made me realise that. They stood by me like my pillar of strength. I remember my father telling me something when I was going through depression. Those words of him gave me so much strength that till today it has stayed with me as motivation”.
“I was into depression when things got out of hand and situation got really ugly and I was into depression. A really bad one and I can’t express it. My father told me that being a father I am telling you this that if you plan to live the rest of your life like this, then please go and end your life and if you don’t want to do this then come out of it right away. If you want to end your life do it, I won’t regret or not stopping you” she further added.
When asked if anyone from the Industry came forward to help her she rrevealed “Nobody from the industry came forward to help me. There were people who came to console me. But most of them judged me that I was like that and hence all this was happening to me. Nobody supported me. The entire industry was on one side and I was alone on the other. I had no work in hand. Everybody would throw me out of work without giving any reason. How I survived in Mumbai at that only I and my family knows”.
On the professional front Akshara was last seen in BigBoss 13 and she will be seen the upcoming music video with singer B praak.
