However, Ravindra Jadeja swiftly refuted these claims on Instagram, labeling them unfounded and intended to tarnish his wife’s image. He rejected the allegations and expressed disappointment at the attempts to besmirch his family. Despite residing in the same city, the relationship between Ravindra and his father remains strained.

In a post on Instagram, translated from Gujarati, Ravindra Jadeja stated, “All the things said in the absurd interview given to Divyabhaskar are meaningless and untrue. The attempts made to tarnish the image of my godmother are truly reprehensible and unbecoming. I also have a lot to say which is fine as long as I don’t say it publicly. Thank you.”

 

Jadeja’s response came after his father’s statements made headlines, adding a poignant twist to the family saga. He emphasized the need to address personal matters privately rather than airing them publicly.

The saga took a political turn as well, with Rivaba contesting the 2022 Gujarat Assembly Elections for the BJP from the Jamnagar (north) seat. This move created tension within the family, particularly with Naynaba Jadeja, who was associated with the Congress party. Despite their differences, Naynaba expressed affection for her brother.
