New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut's reality show Lock Upp is nearing its grand premiere, where one of the contestants will lift the trophy to win the first season. Controversial celebrity Poonam Panday became the latest one to get evicted from the show just days ahead of its completion. 


After her shocking eviction, Poonam opened up about her life and the struggles she faced in marriage. Poonam told ETimes TV in an interview, "I can’t smell things. I ask people around me about the smell." That’s how I smell things. When domestic violence happened to me, I completely lost my sense of smell. Brain hemorrhage is connected with it. But honestly, I am mentally and physically much stronger right now."

While on the show, she once mentioned facing domestic violence. Poonam had revealed that her estranged husband, Sam Bombay, once beat her so much that it caused her to have a brain haemorrhage. 


Poonam Pandey got married to her boyfriend, Sam Bombay, in a private ceremony in 2020. Soon after the wedding news, she filed a complaint against him, saying that he had molested, threatened, and assaulted her. The incident reportedly took place in Canacona village in south Goa, where Pandey was shooting for a film and later, Sam was arrested. 

Sam, who was born and brought up in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai, is an ad filmmaker and a producer.
