In the latest episode of reality show Lock Upp, participant Ali Merchant made several remarks about actress Mandana Karimi. Merchant dubbed her the most fake person of the show and even went on to say that the actress has similar traits to a gold digger. When contestant Azma Fallah heard Ali's comments, she told Mandana Kairimi about the same. While responding to Ali, Mandana opened up about her dating life.
In the reality show, Ali Merchant was seen talking to the camera and that's exactly when Azma Fallah eavesdropped the conversation. "I think Mandana is the most fake person inside this house. I am not directly calling her a gold digger. But she has similar traits to a gold digger. They look for prey, earn their sympathy, get close to the prey, and pretend to be their best friends. She did the same, told sob stories about her family, she pretended to be friends with Zeeshan (Khan) and befriended me as well through him," said Ali.
After Azma told Mandana about Ali's comments, the actress opened up about her dating life. The actress said that she has been in a relationship with many powerful men but it had nothing to do with their financial stature.
"I may look fancy but I am spoiling myself with my money which I have earned. As far as my dating is concerned, yes, I have dated powerful men. Not because of their money. It is on record, that on many occasions I have broken up with a powerful man because it wasn't worth my time or life. I have never taken anything from anyone. In fact, many times my things have gone. They ruined my name and my life, as my ex did," said Mandana.
For people who are unaware, after being in a relationship for 2 years, Mandana Kairimi tied the knot with Gaurav Gupta in 2017. A few months into their wedding, Mandana registered a domestic violence case against Gaurav and his family. However, she took back the police complaint later.
