A surprising turn of events witnessed Apu Biswas and her infant son on a live TV programme on Monday afternoon. The heart-felt and tragic tell-all interview captivated millions and gripped the attention of the media throughout the country. The event occurred after a two-year self imposed exile during which Apu mysteriously disappeared from the limelight.
The talk show featured the once highly sought actress Apu Biswas revealing that her son was fathered by film superstar Shakib Khan. The claim was later confirmed by the father in question himself, who stated, “He is my son, but I will not take any responsibility for Apu.”
The statement roused much controversy on social media, giving rise to speculations on the actor arranging a press conference on Tuesday morning. This rumour was rebutted by Shakib Khan, who said, “Why would I arrange a press conference when I was not the one to spread the news?”
However, the actor has had a change of heart and in a statement given yesterday said: “It had come as an angry surprise to me when Apu appeared on television with my son in that manner. However, I have made a decision; I would like for all of us to live as a family. This choice has been made deliberately on my own part, and I am not afraid of the consequences it will have on my career. My fans have been loyal throughout these years, and I have faith that they will stand by me now.”
The issue of Apu and Shakib tying the knot had been under media speculation for the last two years, along with the grapevine news that the actress had been in India for some time to deliver her son. These claims were later cemented as fact by Apu Biswas in the momentous interview.
