Tehseen Poonawalla Bigg Boss 13: Political Connections, Controversies, Personal Life And More About This Wild Card Contestant
The makers of Bigg Boss 13 are giving their 100% in helping the controversial show rake in some deadly TRPS and guess what? It’s working! Well, simply because other than the in-house tension and drama, the viewers will be soon witnessing a set of some dhamakedar wild card entries that promise a lot more entertainment and fights. The list includes Hindustan Bhau, Shefali Jariwala, Khesari Lal Yadav and Tehseen Poonawalla. While a sufficient amount of information about the first three celebs is available in the public domain, not many people know about Tehseen Poonawalla and his strong political connections. So, without further ado, read on as we present his background, personal live and political influences.

Personal Life

Tehseen belongs to an elite Muslim family and has a brother named Shehzad. In the year 2008, the two began working on their entrepreneurial venture and, soon after some time, Shehzad found his interest in politics after he got in touch with senior Congress leaders. Shehzad Poonawalla is the former Congress secretary of Maharashtra. It was in the year 2016 that Tehseen Poonawalla got hitched to Monicka Vadera, who happens to be the cousin of Priyanka Gandhi’s husband Robert Vadera. Well, that makes him a distant relative of the Gandhi family.


Tehseen Poonawalla has added several feathers in his cap. He happens to be a TV host, a political analyst that appears on news channels, a columnist, an entrepreneur, a socialite and a fitness freak. Interestingly, Tehseen is also a Ted-X speaker and a life coach. Further, he is also a youth icon for his followers. Both Tehseen and his wife Monicka are staunch fitness lovers and often get indulged into social activities. His wife owns a jewelry brand.

Political Connects

Unsurprisingly, Tehseen Poonawalla is a Congress supporter; however, that doesn’t stop him from criticising the party, as and when required.

Controversy With Brother

In during the Congress Presidential election in the year 2017 that Tehseen got involved into an ugly spat with brother Shehzad, which eventually ended up into fallout between them. It happened after Shehzad called the elections a ‘sham’ and this didn’t go down well with Tehseen and he broke all the ties with his brother. He made it official by tweeting, “It is totally unacceptable to me and my family that Shehzad has dragged Mrs Gandhi into this, he should have presented whatever issues he had in the party forum. I officially end all relationship with @Shehzad_Ind . I have never been this hurt. We needed to defeat the BJP. This is unacceptable. I'm very very hurt today. Been stabbed in the back ..And how."

Now, we can’t wait for the drama that Tehseen will bring inside the Bigg Boss 13 house. Reportedly, he is also the highest-paid contestant and has beaten Rashami Desai.
