Mandana Karimi Reacts After Anurag Kashyap's Name Came Up As Alleged Director Who Made Her Pregnant

Lock Upp is a captive reality show, where inmates have to stay 24*7 inside the jail and obey what the jailor wants. With every passing day, the Kangana Ranaut hosted show is getting spicier as every now and then, we see celebrities fighting, revealing each other's darkest secrets and bashing one another with dirty allegations. Actress and model, Mandana Karimi, a popular face of Lock Upp, has now made a sensational revelation about the director, who had ditched her after making her pregnant. 

It all started when Mandana had disclosed a shocking truth to save herself from elimination. She had confessed that after her separation from her ex-husband, Gaurav Gupta, she had a secret relationship with a famous director for a year and a half. And together, they had planned the pregnancy. However, later the director, who also talks about women's rights in the outside world, had ditched her, and she had to abort their baby.

In a recent interview with The Times Of India, Mandana Karimi opened up about the speculations which claimed that the director was Anurag Kashyap, who had cheated on her after the pregnancy. When Mandana was asked if she would name the filmmaker, she said she would not reveal the name. However, Mandana quashed all the rumours linking Anurag Kashyap to this case. She shared:

"Sure, I won't. But I definitely want to add here that it's not the name that's going around, which is Anurag Kashyap. Anurag was my friend and we are still friends. I have seen the headlines. It's not done. It's very unethical and unfortunate. I want to repeat again here, it's a sad state of news and headlines- picking names, putting words into people's mouths."

Earlier, in the show, Mandana had shocked everyone when she had stated that her estranged husband, Gaurav Gupta had slept with everyone she knew. In the same interview, when the actress was asked if her unsuccessful married life has made her wary of men and love, Mandana retorted:

"Not at all. You go to the market and get apples. If one apple has a keeda in it, it doesn't make the other apples bad and it doesn't stop you from enjoying them. It's the same with love, relationships and men. It's not the end of the world. It's not that if one has a failed marriage and a failed relationship, he/she cannot find love again. Such things only make you stronger. Please get inspired by what I say. See the bigger picture. I have come from Iran, done TV and movies both and am still standing tall."


For the unversed, Mandana Karimi had surprised her millions of fans when she had made her less-hyped court marriage with her then-longtime beau, Gaurav Gupta official on January 25, 2017. Later, on March 5, the duo had tied the knot in a traditional Hindu wedding. However, after two months of her married life with her then-husband Gaurav, she had made a shocking allegation against him of domestic violence. Finally, after a separation of four years, Mandana and Gaurav had got divorced in 2021. 


On the professional front, Mandana will be next seen in her upcoming untitled movie, which stars Anil Kapoor.
