Ravindra Jadeja, the acclaimed Indian all-rounder, found himself amidst family controversy after his father, Anirudh Singh Jadeja, made various allegations during a recent interview. Anirudh revealed strained relations, particularly after Jadeja’s marriage to his wife, Rivaba Jadeja. In response, Jadeja quickly addressed the situation, urging his fans not to believe such scripted statements.
Recently, Rivaba Jadeja, who is also a BJP MLA, faced questions about her relationship with her father-in-law. In a viral video, she sternly rebuked a reporter, expressing displeasure at discussing personal matters in public.
“Why are we here today? You can contact me directly if you want to know about it,” she asserted in the video.

Anirudh Singh Jadeja currently lives separately from his son, residing in a 2 BHK flat and relying on a ₹20,000 pension from his wife. During the controversial interview, he disclosed that problems arose in the family after Jadeja’s marriage to Rivaba.
“I have no relation of any kind with Ravi (Ravindra Jadeja) or his wife Rivaba Jadeja. We don’t call them, and they don’t call us. I manage my expenses from the ₹20,000 pension of my wife. I live alone in a 2BHK flat. Even in my 2BHK flat, there is still a separate room for Ravindra. We have worked very hard to make Ravindra a cricketer,” Anirudh stated in the interview.

He further added, “I used to carry 20-litre milk cans on my shoulder to earn money. I have even worked as a watchman. We come from a humble background. His sister has done even more than me. She took care of him as a mother. However, he hasn’t kept any relations with his sister either.”
Responding promptly to his father’s claims, Jadeja released a statement through his social media, dismissing the interview as an attempt to tarnish his wife’s image.
