Maradona daughter's wedding fuels family drama

Dalma Maradona is due to marry Andres Caldarelli in April and apparently failed to invite her stepmother.

Argentine media are buzzing over whether the soccer star, who coaches Al Fujairah SC, will attend at all.

Asked about his plans in Dubai by Diario Popular, Maradona was characteristically blunt.

My wife is Rocio (Oliva). And if she is not invited, I'm not going," he said.

The underlying family row, as usual in Argentina, is making headlines.

She won't be the first bride or the last to marry without her father being there," Maradona, 57, said sounding as if minds had been made up.

The World Cup star was married for many years to Claudia Villafane, with whom he had two daughters, Dalma and Giannina. He also has acknowledged having three children with other women.

In October, Maradona beat the future bride and groom to the punch announcing their upcoming nuptials on Instagram.

After working for so many years, the way few people of the industry (referring to the producers of Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai) treated me, I am disheartened. I do not wish to work in the TV industry anymore,” said Shilpa.

In 2016, the actor left the show Bhabhi Ji. due to issues with the producers. She also reportedly filed a complaint of sexual harassment against producer Sanjay Kohli. Since the actor came out openly in the media and spoke about her experience, she faced trouble in getting new shows.

See, in the last 15 years, people did not love me, but the characters that I played. They did not know how I am in real life as Shilpa Shinde. So now, everyone, who voted for me, they know my real self,” said Shilpa.
