Bigg Boss 13 wild card Tehseen Poonawalla a Gandhi-Vadra kin


Mumbai, Nov 2 (IANS) A while back, IANS reported how wild card entry Tehseen Poonawalla became the highest-paid contestant on “Bigg Boss season 13, beating Rashami Desai. Ever since, fans have been eager to know who the guy is.

Tehseen may not be a star, but he does have some high-profile connections. He is married to Monica Vadera, who is a cousin of Robert Vadra, who is Priyanka Gandhi’s husband. Which means, Tehseen, by relation, is ex-Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law.

While “Bigg Boss” follows its own unwritten rulebook of politics, which remains restricted to what goes on inside the house, Tehseen’s political ties have nonetheless put him in the spotlight.


The 38-year-old is also an entrepreneur and a columnist and a political analyst, who is also into civil rights activism, reports Tehseen is actively into social media too, and will look to capitalise on his cyber popularity if he hopes to stand a serious chance in winning “Bigg Boss 13. With 138k followers on Twitter, Tehseen is also a social media consultant.

His wife is a jewellery designer while younger brother Shehzad Poonawalla is a former secretary of Maharashtra Congress.


Tehseen and Shehzad Poonawalla hosted shows like Bhai Vs Bhai and Bhai 2 Rukh, and subsequently had a tiff that led to Tehseen ‘disowning’ his brother on Twitter.
