Rishika Singh is in the Bigg Boss and creating uproar with her straight-forward attitude. Before getting into the house, she stirred a controversy with her obscene video which was uploaded on YouTube. She had accused director SK Basheed of doctoring the video and putting up on the video-sharing website. The actress also had filed a complaint against him for the same.
SK Basheed surrendered to the court on Wednesday (May 15) and he was granted a conditional bail on Thursday (May 16) by the IIX ACCMM court. Rishika Singh had filed the complaint with Sanjaynagar police on May 2. As part of the bail conditions, he has to report to the police station everyday until further order. The court directed Basheed to execute a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh, with one surety in the like amount. He has also been asked to co-operate with the investigation and asked not to influence anyone to destroy the evidence.

It is believed that some portions of the video were shot for their earlier film Yaaradre Nanagenu, which was put on the back burner after its launch. In fact, the poster, which showed her without clothes, where her body was covered by dry mud, had landed her in a big controversy last year.
Well, coming back to the controversial clip, Rishika Singh claimed that in order to pull audience to theatres, SK Basheed stooped low and morphed video to attract audience. "It was not me in the obscene video clip and the director has doctored the video for his personal gain," she said.
"SK Basheed has morphed the video and has spread it on social networking sites and video-sharing site YouTube to drive audience to theatres. The director has also threatened me with dire consequences," she added.
Meanwhile, Rishika Singh is busy with her Bigg Boss assignment. The actress has drawn audience attention with her straight-forward behaviour in the show.
