As per reports in Voice of Nation, Indian badminton sensation Saina Nehwal slapped Indian actor Deepika Padukone after a row which revolved around Vijay Mallya’s son, Siddharth Mallya. The report makes the claims that Saina Nehwal was in a relationship with Siddharth Mallya. According to the story in the report, Saina Nehwal was angry with Deepika, after she snatched her boyfriend Siddharth away from her.
The report in Voice of Nation quotes, “Siddharth started dating Deepika again and at the same time he was dating Saina. When Saina got to know about it, she slapped Deepika and asked her to stay away from Siddharth. According to the sources, Deepika was jealous of Saina because of her badminton skills and also because she was dating Siddharth. But Saina was so pissed off with him that she broke up with Siddharth. When asked Saina, why did she break up? She replied, ‘I just want to concentrate on my game and represent India’. Although, it was really hard for her to cope up with this situation, but she stood firm in her decision. It is also said that Siddharth and Saina were planning to get married, but at the end, Saina also wanted to make her career.”
Saina doesn’t seem the kind of person to get involved in such mess which makes the report seem shady at best. Saina is a very career driven individual and has always behaved graciously, meaning the report should be taken with a grain of salt.
