Chandigarh: Former cricketer and father of Yuvraj Singh, Yograj Singh has dismissed claims that his son is a drug-addict. Akansha Sharma, the ex-wife of Yuvraj’s brother, Zoravar Singh had accused her once brother-in-law of taking drugs and being involved in wrongdoings.
Sharma, who is now separated, appeared on the Popular TV reality show Big Boss. During an interview after her eviction, she said that one night she partied till late and returned home drunk. She later clarified the point saying that she had smoked weed with Zoravar and Yuvraj, and that the latter was into substance abuse. Sharma has been eliminated from the show indicating that her statements of accusing Yuvraj and his family didn’t go down too well with the national audience.
What nonsense is she talking? It is absolute rubbish”, retorted Yograj, speaking to Deccan Chronicle. “I’m a father of four children and none of them are drug-addicts. Yuvraj, as also my other three children, are like lions. They don’t eat grass.”
Sharma has also revealed how Yuvraj and Zoravar’s mother, Shabnam Singh created troubles in her married life. She went on to disclose information as to how Shabnam used to interfere in her living and that she was the one to accuse Sharma of substance abuse in the first place. She also went on to say that Yuvraj was the sole bread-earner of the family and how the rest of the family relies on him. Shabnam has since decided to sue Sharma for leaking private details on national television.
“The lady who is accusing Yuvraj, should put her own house in order before alleging something”, Yograj said. “Let me remind her that these allegations will not hamper the chances of my son’s comeback – he will certainly comeback and play for India.”
Yograj has been in news for his outspoken nature. He had earlier held MS Dhoni responsible on various occasions for keeping Yuvraj out of the national team deliberately, and that is something for which will one day remain ‘penniless’.
