Following footsteps of her close friend and Bigg Boss 11 co-contestant Shilpa Shinde, Arshi Khan is the latest celebrity to join Congress. Arshi khan confirmed the news to India Forums saying, "Yes I am joining Congress as Vice President of Maharashtra, they have offered me a post that is the reason I said Yes. Also, the party needs youth people who are outspoken."
While Arshi claims to be joining politics, there has been no official confirmation from the Congress yet. Arshi Khan created a lot of buzz during her stay inside Bigg Boss 11 house. The former BB contestant was voted as the second most searched entertainer on Google India's Most searched Entertainers list in 2017. She also hogged the limelight for flirting with co-contestant Hiten Tejwani on the show.
Back in 2015, Arshi made headlines when she claimed to be in a relationship with cricketer Shahid Afridi. Later in an interview, the actress had claimed that she had called up the cricketer before entering the house.
