The caller claimed that her marriage to Keith was not legal and she was asked to visit the Bandra Matrimonial court regarding the same. In an interview, she talked about the incident and said,
I blocked that number because I was advised by my family that they are trying to screw my mind. They were random numbers, they were unknown sometimes and threatened me not to enter BB house. I told the caller the last time when she called that I’m going to the cops, but I haven’t because I was advised by my brother-n-law and friend (Prem Soni) to just block the numbers because this was a clear case of harassment.”
