Iranian beauty Mandana Karimi, who is currently creating controversy inside the "Bigg Boss 9" house, was involved in another controversy a few years back with regard to her marital status.

The "Bigg Boss 9" contestant is reportedly secretly married to model Lalit Tehlan. Reports of her marriage came out in 2011 when a marriage certificate was leaked online and the reports have surfaced once again after four years when she entered the "Bigg Boss 9" house.

The Times of India, in 2011, reported that they have a marriage certificate of Mandana and Lalit. The certificate, dated 18 February 2011, indicates that they had an Arya Samaj wedding, according to TOI.

However, Mandana denied the reports then and said that she was dating Lalit but they were not ready to the tie the knot anytime soon.

"Yes, I'm dating Lalit, but we're not getting married. The wedding certificate that you have cannot be true, as my name is Mandana Karimi. Lalit is my boyfriend, and I am well-placed to tell you that we aren't married yet and are not planning to tie the knot anytime soon," she told the daily in 2011. 

The certificate shows Mandana's photo, but the name mentioned in it is Manizhe Karimi. But one cannot ignore the fact that her official Twitter handle is @manizhe.

Meanwhile, Mandana is making her presence felt in India with Bollywood movies and "Bigg Boss 9". She was last seen in Kunal Khemu's "Bhaag Johnny" and now she is inside the "Bigg Boss 9" house.
