Ravindra Jadeja attracted attention for reasons beyond the cricket field last week when he issued a statement regarding his father’s interview, where the latter made controversial comments about his relationship with his son. Jadeja alleged that the interview was “scripted” and his wife Rivaba recently addressed allegations made by her father-in-law Anirudhsinh regarding his family dynamic.
Anirudhsinh had alleged that Rivaba was responsible for causing discord within the family, alleging that Ravindra had stopped communicating with his father and sister after his marriage. She also revealed that she resided alone in a modest 2BKH apartment despite living in the same city as the Indian cricketer and that he managed his expenses solely from his late wife’s family. $Pension of 20,000.
Furthermore, Anirudhsinh implied that Rivaba gradually gained control over Ravindra’s assets and properties after their marriage.
When asked to comment on her father-in-law’s remarks at a public event, Rivaba, who is a BJP MLA, seemed visibly upset. She urged the journalist to approach her directly instead of discussing such matters in a public setting.
“Why are we here today? You can contact me directly if you want to know about it,” Rivaba said in a video that went viral.
Following the wide circulation of Anirudhsinh’s interview, Ravindra Jadeja addressed the issue on his social media platforms. Describing the interview as scripted, she asked her fans to ignore her father’s comments.
“Let’s ignore what is said in the written interviews,” he wrote on his official X profile.
“Everything that is said in the recently published nonsense interview by Divyabhaskar is totally untrue and untrue. It is a one-sided story. I completely reject it. I strongly condemn the actions taken to malign my wife’s image. I also have a lot of things to say; “It is better that you do not make them public,” a statement from Jadeja said.
On the cricket front, Jadeja returned to the Indian team after being forced to miss the second Test of the series against England; Jadeja was ruled out due to a hamstring injury, although his return to the eleven would depend on a medical clearance. The five-Test series is currently tied 1-1 and the third match will begin on February 15 in Rajkot.
