Hansika Motwani's reality show, Hansika's Love Shaadi Drama released on Disney+ Hotstar on Friday. The show not only shows how the actor and her family prepared for the wedding but also addressed some allegations made against Hansika and husband Sohael Khaturiya around the time of the wedding.

Soon after Hansika announced her engagement with Sohael, many people on social media began posting about Sohael's first marriage with one Rinky. It was alleged that Rinky used to be best friends with Hansika, who even attended their wedding a few years ago.

As this knowledge started circulating on social media and later on news sites, Hansika started getting trolled heavily for ‘stealing’ her best friend's husband. All her social media posts about wedding or otherwise were bombarded with people accusing her of breaking Rinky's home.

Now, in the final few closing mintues of the first episode of Love Shaadi Drama, Hansika and Sohael addressed the reports.

After ending a film shoot for the day, Hansika enters her trailer and notices all the articles written about her and Sohael and her getting blamed. Sohael said, “The news that I was previously married came out and it came out in a wrong light. It came out as if the breakup was because of Hansika, which is absolutely untrue and baseless.”

“Just because I knew the person at that time doesn't mean it was my fault. I have nothing to do with this. Because I am a public figure, it was very easy for people to point at me and make me the villain. This was a price I pay for being a celebrity,” Hansika says in her piece to the camera.

Sohael explains, “I was first married in 2014 and that marriage lasted for a very short time. But just because we have been friends and someone saw pictures of her attending my wedding, is why this speculation started." He said he was taken aback by all attention he was getting suddenly.

Hansika's Love Shaadi Drama airs every Friday on Disney+ Hotstar.
