Mahat’s stint at Bigg Boss has been controversial. Known for his short temper and mind games, Mahat even had feelings for fellow contestant Yashika Anand despite having a girlfriend outside of the show. His confession towards her led to his girlfriend, Prachi Mishra, publicly breaking up with him.
“He is in love with Yashika and that’s open now, I am hurt but this will not change my life and I will take care of myself. He is mean to Mumtaz and his only well wisher Janani, he is not standing for her too! It’s a humble Request to everyone plz stop asking me anything about him, thank you for all the msgs and concern that you have shown, it’s my personal life and I will take care (sic),” she added. “I AM NOT WITH MAHAT SO PLS LEAVE MY SOCIAL MEDIA FOR MY WORK Thank you,” she wrote but has since deleted the post.
