Akanksha Puri had appeared as a guest on Bigg Boss 13 and Bigg Boss 15
Many remember her as the potential bride to singer Mika Singh. Akanksha Puri, however, has more than one connection to reality shows. She has been associated with Bigg Boss before and is now a part of Bigg Boss OTT season 2.
So, who exactly is Akanksha Puri? And what is her connection to Bigg Boss? Find out…
Akanksha Puri was a part of the much-loved Bigg Boss 13
Remember the woman Bigg Boss 13 contestant Paras Chhabra spoke about before he moved on with Mahira Sharma? Akanksha Puri is the same woman. She was dating Paras in 2017. They took a break from the relationship and Paras began dating Pavitra Punia. Akanksha had claimed that Paras dated Pavitra only to make her jealous. Eventually, Akanksha and Paras’ relationship came to an end in 2019, when he grew close to Mahira on Bigg Boss 13.

Paras and Akanksha had got each other’s names tattooed on their wrist. After parting ways, she changed the tattoo to ‘Being Me’ along with a barcode. Paras change it to an eye (which is also co-incidentally the Bigg Boss logo).
