Team India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has dismissed his father Anirudh Singh Jadeja’s claims of having strained relationship with his father and his wife Rivaba Jadeja.

Earlier in an interview, Anirudh had revealed that he doesn’t have any contact with his son and daughter-in-law. He also highlighted the rift after Ravindra’s marriage to Rivaba, leading to physical distance between them.

“Let me tell you the truth, I have no relation of any kind with Ravi (Ravindra Jadeja) or his wife Rivaba Jadeja. We don’t call them, and they don’t call us. Controversies started happening only after two-three months of Ravi’s marriage. At present, I live alone in Jamnagar, Ravindra lives separately,” Anirudh had said in the interview.

However, in his response, Ravindra took to social media account X (earlier known as Twitter) to clarify that it is an attempt to tarnish the image of him and his wife.

“All the things mentioned in the interview is nonsense. It is completely meaningless and untrue. These are attempts to tarnish the image of my wife which are truly reprehensible. I also have a lot of things to say but don’t say them publicly,” wrote Ravindra.

Notably, Ravindra tied the nuptial knot with Rivaba in an arrange marriage in April 2016. However, there have been several reports about rift in Jadeja’s family after the marriage.
