India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has attracted attention after his father Anirudh Singh made some serious allegations against him in one of his recent interviews. His father said he didn’t share a healthy relationship with his son after his marriage to his wife Rivaba Jadeja. Ravindra Jadeja asked his fans to not believe in such rumors. He also said that the interview was scripted.
Rivaba Jadeja, who is a BJP MP recently stated about her uneasy relationship with father-in-law Anirudh Singh. The all-rounder’s wife got angry with the reporter after being asked about her father-in-law and told him to not ask about her personal life publicly.
Rivaba was heard telling the reporter, “You can contact me personally if you want to know about it”. Ravindra Jadeja’s father lives away from his son in a separate 2 bhk flat and survives on his wife’s pension. Anirudh Singh, further added in the interview that since Ravindra Jadeja’s marriage with Rivaba, there have been problems in the family.
He further added, “I don’t have any relationship with Ravindra and his wife Rivaba. I don’t call them and they don’t call me. I live alone in my 2bhk flat and manage all my expenses through my wife’s pension of Rs 20000. In my 2bhk flat, there is a separate room for Ravindra. All have worked very hard to shape Ravindra’s cricketing career. I carried 20 liters of milk on my shoulder to earn money and even worked as a watchman. We come from a modest background. His sister has also made big contributions. She also took care of her mother but he doesn’t share any relations with her sister also”, his father went on to say in the interview.
Ravindra Jadeja quickly responded on social media that the interview was scripted and it was totally to destroy his wife’s image.
Ravindra Jadeja asks fans to neglect such scripted interviews
“Let’s neglect such scripted interviews. Whatever has been told in the interview published by Divyabhaskar is false and it is a one-sided narration. I totally disagree with it. The allegations made against my wife are all false and scripted. It is just to malign her image. Ravindra Jadeja went on to say, I also have many things to say but it’s better to not reveal them publicly, “the all-rounder wrote on his social media account.
Jadeja is all set to make a return to the Indian squad in the third test against England in Rajkot that starts on the 15th of February but it also relies on his fitness. The all-rounder didn’t play the second test after suffering a hamstring injury.
