As reported by bollywoodlife.com, Akansha told host Salman Khan, As far as substance abuse goes, it was there in their family too. Whatever I did was with them. I smoked pot with my husband. Yuvi [Yuvraj Singh] also told me he smoked pot. It is a very common thing in the industry. My mother-in-law now needs to say something to justify herself.

Firstly, it wasn t a marriage in the right sense. I was married only in paper. There was nothing in that relationship. I haven t lied and I am pretty sure of whatever I have said. Nothing happened in my marriage. I am not backing off from what I said. Saying that matter is sub-judice is the safest thing to do.

Talking about the matter, Shabnam told Hindustan Times, “First of all, this matter is sub judice and she (Akansha) is not allowed to speak. It goes under the contempt of court. There s a special petition I had filed. Anyone can understand the agenda here and everybody knows it. We are not allowed to speak on this matter.

As per reports, Shabnam is contemplating to file a defamation case on Akansha.
