Talking about the controversy, Nupur said, “I am a free, young girl from independent nation and I have been facing allegations that I have fixed the Indo-Pak semifinal which took place during World Cup 2011.”

She added that, “If I am so powerful that I can fix matches and so many Pakistani players listen to me then I should go and stand in the elections in Pakistan and hopefully even win elections due to my popularity. Actually, I am a poor, innocent Indian girl and they are blaming me for nothing at all.”

Nupur Mehta is a huge cricket fan and it is evident from her knowledge that there are 16 cricket playing countries in the world. Despite being an upcoming Bollywood actress it was clear that her love for cricket was stronger than that of Bollywood.

Shekhar Suman asked Nupur, “Would you personally like to thank Virat Kohli for his innings?” Nupur was more than glad to do that but on the condition of Shekhar “fixing” the date.

On this Shekhar said, “I am not involving myself in any ‘fixing’ and I would like to stay away from it.”
