JAD Hadid’s alleged new girlfriend has taken a dig at Akanksha Puri after the stars of ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’ shared an on-screen kiss.
The contestants made headlines after snogging uncomfortably during a task on the reality TV show.
Jad’s seemingly new flame has now also shared her opinion on the controversial kiss, which stunned millions of viewers.
The mystery woman flattered the Lebanon-born model in front of paparazzi and made it clear she was laying claim to him.
She gazed admiringly at Jad as he answered questions from the crowd of snappers until he asked her to help him answer a question.
Awkwardly, one of the group asked the couple, “Where’s Akanksha?”
A blushing Jad turned to his new friend, who then bluntly replied, “Akanksha should stay away from Jad, okay?”
He kissed her on the cheek in apparent approval of her response before quickly changing the subject.
The identity of Jad’s alleged new partner is unknown, although he did not mention he was in a relationship during the show.
Fans of Bigg Boss OTT 2 were unimpressed by her apparent dig, while others were desperate to discover her identity.

The recent interaction is sure to upset Akanksha, who is dying to distance herself from the awkward kiss she shared with Jad.
They locked lips together at the Bigg Boss OTT 2 home, but the model later branded the Indian actress a ‘bad kisser’.
Since then, she’s had to defend her kissing skills in numerous interviews, saying he took the task “too personally.”
Akanksha told ETimes, “Jad Hadid took it too personally, he wanted it to be like a real kiss between two lovers, where you have to have this passion, you have to move your lips, your tongue, this and that.”
“I didn’t want to do that and that’s why I didn’t return it the way he wanted to and that’s why he was like, ‘Oh my god, you’re a bad kisser.’
“Excuse me! It wasn’t about kissing, and I didn’t have a director here to tell me, ‘Akanksha, it has to look a certain way.’
“It was just a task I had to do in 30 seconds which I managed and won.”
The pair then loosened their awkward kiss by snogging on the red carpet at Palak Purswani’s birthday party.
They only exchanged a kiss on the cheek, but fans said the interaction was “awkward” to watch.
