"Ho skta hai vo uska game ka strategy hogi.. Usko pta tha ki agr vo pregnant hogi.. Hum sab ka blood test hua tha, mera bhi hua tha.. Tabi vo ghar ke ander aayi hai.. Aur vo aisa claim kar rahi hai which is very shocking. Lekin uske reports negative aaye hai, mere samne usne mujhe khud bola tha ki reports negative hai. Aur shayad yeh uski part of strategy hai.. Agar vo pregnant hoti toh ghar se bahar aa jati.."
