ControversiesJust a few days before Bhayyuji Maharaj's second marriage to Ayushi Sharma, a Mumbai-based writer named Mallika Rajput accused him of cheating her. According to her, she met Bhayyuji through their common friend and singer Shaan, after which Bhayyuji asked her if she could write a book and film on his life. She accepted his offer and wrote a book and gave 950 copies of that book to Bhayyuji, but he neither released her book nor he returned the copies of her book. On the other hand, Bhayyuji claimed that due to some vague information, the trust didn't give clearance to the book.
