Benafsha Soonawalla, who entered the Bigg Boss house with an agenda of spreading happiness and positive vibes, couldn’t do any of it and got evicted last week. After repeatedly getting pulled up for eviction by the host of the show, Salman Khan, this time she finally had to step out of the house for not receiving enough votes. But before getting out of the house, she surely grabbed some eyeballs. During her last days in the Bigg Boss house, Benafsha became the talk of the town for her growing chemistry with Priyank Sharma. While some felt that she was doing it all for the camera and to save herself from the eviction, others felt that all that she did was genuine. But the truth only got revealed after she went out of the Bigg Boss house.

In an interview with an esteemed daily, when Benafsha was asked to comment about her closeness with Priyank Sharma in the Bigg Boss house, she went on to say, “My relationship with Priyank was very pure and real and it was only friendship. All the footages that you guys saw where I told him to accept his feelings and that he loved me, were just big fat jokes between us. It was merely to irritate him. I would smack his head later and tell him it was all for fun. I know it all looked wrong but trust me it was only a joke. In a house like Bigg Boss, if you have a friend, who you can trust with all your heart, you form a special connect but that doesn’t mean it’s love.”


And that’s not all; she even went on to clarify things by mentioning about her boyfriend Varun Sood and saying, “He is my only man and I am so proud that he kept his trust on me. Varun was confident about me for he knows what kind of a person I am. If I was looking out for love in the show, why would I have been vocal about my relationship with Varun outside? People sadly don’t get my sense of humour and it just got bad. I regret being so naive and I understand that I should have been careful. I did not know it would all get projected so negatively. It was a healthy friendly drama between buddies and people just took it to a different level. It’s really sad whatever has happened and I hope things get cleared out soon.”

Here’s her recent Instagram post with her boyfriend, Varun Sood that says it all:

Also, when she was told that Priyank’s girlfriend Divya Agarwal had broken up with him on national television after seeing him getting closer to her, she got utterly shocked and said “I think Divya needs to clear out a lot of things and I will speak to her. But apart from me, she is worried about other things too. At the moment, I am really disappointed with humanity for they disregarded a friendly bond.”

The young Parsi girl also opened up about how she was not expecting to get evicted from the house so soon and said, “I did not quite expect to get evicted but I was against two really strong contestants who have a great fan following even before they entered the show. And even if the Priyank controversy did not happen I would have been out.”

As physical violence is a big “No” in the Bigg Boss, Benafsha got nominated last week for not abiding by the rules and pulling Akash Dadlani’s hair during a fight. On being asked to comment on the same, she said, “I got evicted because of his hair and see now, he doesn’t have any more left.”

In the end, she concluded by mentioning about her journey in the Bigg Boss house and said, “It was not the way I wanted it to be so it feels quite incomplete. But it was a roller coaster fun ride for me where I cried, laughed and even fought. Initially, I was the usual bubbly and jumpy me but what got showcased was the Vikas-Shilpa fights (laughs). I never got into unnecessary fights nor bitched about people and so I was never on camera.”

Her last words were, ““I am completely supporting Vikas now and I really think and hope that he wins the show.”
