Swami Om is a fa­ther fig­ure, so no ques­tion of af­fair: Priyanka

For­mer Bigg Boss 10 con­tes­tant Priyanka Jagga (above left) has trashed ru­mours that she’s dat­ing her co-con­tes­tant Swami Om (in­set) and that she’d be par­tic­i­pat­ing with him in a cou­ple dance show.

Say­ing that she looks at Swami Om as a fa­ther fig­ure, Priyanka al­leges that “peo­ple” are us­ing th­ese ru­mours to gain TRPs.

“Those who want high TRP are writ­ing all this non­sense. If they write that Priyanka and her hus­band are be­com­ing a part of a dance show, no one is go­ing to watch their chan­nel. I won’t go to a cou­ple dance re­al­ity show with a man who calls me his daugh­ter,” she fumes. “Even a man with the worst kind of men­tal­ity won’t do some­thing like this. I don’t know to what ex­tent would peo­ple de­fame Swami Om and they’re drag­ging me along in this. I have a hus­band. If such a thing hap­pens, I’ll be ac­cused of caus­ing adul­tery,” says Priyanka, who along with Om, was among the most con­tro­ver­sial con­tes­tants of the show.

Has she got in touch with Swami Om to dis­cuss the grow­ing buzz about their al­leged af­fair? “No,” she says. “Agar maine usse baat ki toh woh baukhla jayega (If I talk to him and he gets to know, then he’d go crazy), and I don’t want to get into this.” The ac­tor is con­tem­plat­ing tak­ing le­gal ac­tion against those spread­ing ru­mours. “[My lawyer] told me that I can slap a defama­tion case,” she says.
