Personal life[edit]

Leaked MMS[edit]

An MMS clip[clarification needed] featuring TV actress Mona Singh went viral on the Internet on 28 March. When she learnt of the clip, she was shooting for her show Sony’s Kya Hua Tera Vaada. Extremely shocked, yet putting up a brave front, she even reported to work on 29 March. [6] Mona Singh said in a statement: "It is just completely appalling and disgraceful that someone on the web can go to the extent of morphing my face onto someone else's body to create a sensational video! We have filed a severe complaint at the Cyber Crime Cell and are hoping to find the culprit. People need to realise that before being actors we're respectable women and have family and friends who we're answerable to and who get affected by negativity that is thrown in our direction."[7][8]
