Bigg Boss Season 01 contestant Bobby Darling (Pakhi Sharma), who got married to Bhopal-based businessman, Ramneek Sharma, in the year 2016, has reportedly filed for divorce in Mumbai on the basis of domestic violence.
At a family court in Bandra, Bobby Darling has sought dissolution of her marriage and cancellation of Rs 2 crore alimony and an October 2016 gift deed of a flat in Oshiwara.
In 2017, Bobby had accused her husband, Ramneek Sharma, of domestic violence and demanding dowry. She had filed a police complaint against him and had also alleged that Ramneek was physically violent towards his elder brother and mother as well.
"Ramneek would beat me up after getting drunk and accuse me of having extramarital affairs with every second man. He also usurped my property and money. He made me give him co-ownership of my flat in Mumbai and did the same when we bought our penthouse in Bhopal. He also bought an SUV using my money immediately after the marriage. Now, I am left with nothing. He had paid the building's security guards to keep an eye on me, and they would inform him of all my moves. He kept a tab on who I spoke with and where I went. Tired of the constant bickering, I suggested that we get divorced with mutual consent, but on the condition that I would get my property and the car back. However, he didn't agree with it. He would, in fact, beat me too because will in his name. I want my property back so that I can sell it off and move back to Mumbai." stated Bobby Darling.
On the other hand, Ramneek Sharma has questioned the validity of their marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act. He maintains that the Hindu Marriage Act only recognizes marriage to be valid only between a man and a woman.
Bobby Darling, who was born as Pankaj Sharma, holds the Limca Book Of Records for playing the role of a gay man 18 times in Bollywood movies even before she turned 23. In 2010, she underwent the surgery that completed her transformation into a woman.
Bobby was earlier rumoured to be dating actor Ankit Sharma, but the latter clarified that he never dated the Bigg Boss ex-contestant.
