In what has come as a big shock to many, popular Hindi actress and reality television star Arshi Khan escaped a major car accident during the shooting of an upcoming show in Delhi. According to reports, the Afghanistan-born model was later admitted to hospital, with the accident taking place near Malviya Nagar, Shivalik road in Delhi. Arshi's family has confirmed the news of the accident, ETimes TV has reported. 

Arshi shot to the limelight after participating as a contestant on the hit reality TV show, Bigg Boss 11, in 2017 and put up a strong performance by remaining in the house for 83 days. She has since also made appearances on shows like Vish and Savitri Devi College & Hospital, and will next be seen on the big screen in an upcoming Bollywood film. Last seen as a wildcard contestant on Bigg Boss 14, Arshi had spoken about the preparation she is undertaking for her role in the film. She spoke about learning to wrestle and said, "I'm really feeling proud of myself. Like I'm learning the sport with all dedication. I also wish to play the sport at the international level. I don't mind fighting with a man or woman. I feel this will help me to highlight how there is no more gender discrimination in today's world. A girl can be as strong as a man."

In an interview earlier this year, Arshi revealed that she was about to get engaged to an Afghan cricketer. Stating that her father had chosen him, the Bigg Boss star said, "I was about to get engaged in the month of October, with an Afghanistan cricketer. He was chosen by my father. But after the Taliban took over Afghanistan we cancelled the engagement." Arshi told IANS, "He was my father’s friend’s son. So now we are also on talking terms and are like friends but I’m happy. Now I’m sure to find my partner in an Indian guy."
