Is Arshi lying this time as well?
Although Arshi has confirmed about the development, the political party is yet to make an official announcement about it.
Notably, Arshi is known for her knack of hitting the limelight with her 'dreamy' claims.
In fact, in January 2018, she claimed to have been roped in for her big screen debut opposite Baahubali actor Prabhas.
However, her claims turned out to be untrue.
When Arshi claimed to bag a Prabhas-starrrer

'I am not lying at all for the limelight'
However, Arshi's false claims were soon exposed after a source told BollywoodLife, "Forget approaching for a film, Prabhas' team doesn't even know who Arshi is".
Even after this, Arshi continued defending herself and stated that she wasn't lying.
"I am not lying at all for the limelight. Whatever I had tweeted about my movie, was what the makers had told me," she added.
Shilpa-Arshi's love-hate relationship on 'Bigg Boss 11' kept audience intrigued
Coming back to Shilpa-Arshi's camaraderie on BB11, which was quite interesting and their love-hate relationship was one of the USPs of the show.
The ladies, who were best of friends initially, ended up turning arch rivals later.
They were not ready to see each other eye-to-eye, on the show, and also made nasty comments about one another.
However, the two resolved their differences later.
