Lock Upp: Sara Khan’s ex-husband Ali Merchant to enter the show as a wild card contestant

Actor Sara Khan, best known for her role in soap opera Sapna Babul Ka… Bidaai is currently seen in Kangana Ranaut’s reality show ‘Lock Upp’. She’s doing pretty well on the show but now to make her stay hell, the makers have sent Sara’s ex-husband Ali Merchant as a contestant in this jail. Watch the promo:

For the unversed, Sara Khan met Ali Merchant on Bigg Boss 4. While people thought that she appeared on the controversial reality show to win the title, the actress had other plans. She got married to Ali on national television. It was for the first time that a couple had married on Bigg Boss. Rumours at that time were also rife that the makers of the show paid a hefty amount to Sara and Ali to get married on national TV.

However, later the makers of Bigg Boss denied all the claims and stated that Sara Khan and Ali Merchant wished to get hitched. Unfortunately, two months after their marriage, they called it quits. Reports of their separations came as a shock to everyone. Reports at that time also mentioned that Sara and Ali’s marriage was a publicity stunt but the former dismissed the rumours and mentioned that she used to do TV shows before Bigg Boss. It was because of the previous work that she got the reality show.

After announcing their separation, Sara went to make some shocking allegations against her estranged husband Ali and called her marriage a ‘nightmare’. During a conversation with DNA, the actress said that she loved Ali unconditionally but he broke her trust. She got to know his true colours after their marriage.

“My marriage turned out to be a nightmare. I am deeply hurt by his behaviour. I gave him a thousand chances before I called off the relationship. But now we are separate and I believe in the saying that all that happens, happens for good. I don’t want to look back. I want to look forward and do better work than before,” Sara Khan said.
