Evicted contestant Benafsha Soonawalla had lot of answering to do, after her chemistry with co-contestant Priyank Sharma went viral on social media. Fans as well as her boyfriend Varun Sood, were waiting eagerly for her to come out of the house and clear the air regarding her growing closeness with Priyank. Last week, in Weekend Ka Vaar, Benafsha Soonawalla got evicted and there were answers, not all of those were bought by the viewers. In an Instagram video, she explained how the flirting with Priyank was just a ‘big fat joke’. She also went on calling him her ‘little brother’. The explanation wasn’t sufficient enough for her fans who were miffed at her for ‘betraying’ her boyfriend on national television.
So I got out of bigg boss and saw A hell lot of hate. I couldn't understand why. Then I saw ONE, just one episode and I was like I can't see any of it. I don't blame you guys for hating on me. Cause y'all have no idea what actually happened, just like the housemates didn't. Pri, you've always been my best friend but for you to make wrong statements in the house about this was the worst thing you could've done to me. You KNEW it was all a joke. Why did you. I've been in house arrest and quiet for 3 days and I've got to say it now because not just me but everyone that's close to me is getting affected. I'm sure it must be the easiest thing to watch behind a screen and judge a person, we all do it, including me. If I was you, I'd judge me too. BUT there's a difference. I was there for 24 hours per day and y'all got to see just one hour of it. Ever gave it a second thought? EVERY CONVERSATION WITH PRIYANK WAS IN GOOD FUN AND HUMOUR. I WOULD CATCH HOLD OF HIM LATER AND WE WOULD LAUGH ABOUT IT. I DID IT TO TEASE HIM AND MAKE HIM AWKWARD AND THEN I WOULD LAUGH ABOUT IT AND MAKE FUN IF HIM! THE LAUGHING PART WAS NOT SHOWN. Yes I genuinely went on his bed one night to say sorry, cried and hugged him slept next to him for a few minutes and as soon as I woke up I went in my own. I am from a little Parsi family and I lead a simple, fun, ambitious and chilled life. Talking about V everything was just to scandalise pri and then laugh about it. Yes my sense of humour is weird. For all the people saying I did it for footage and camera? My relationship with the camera was intact even before bigg boss and will be even now. I don't see a camera and go crazy, it's my job, I'm used to it. If I had to "fake" a relationship, I'm not a fool to keep mentioning V A LOT of times all through bigg boss and put a VS batch in my bed. All those Comparisons I did later, was AGAIN, to tease him and scare him and then laugh about it. I'm sorry it looked wrong. But it wasn't. This is a message for the haters. Say what you want to me. I understand it wasn't shown as a joke to y'all. But ONE word to anybody that I love and I swear lI'll catch hold of you wherever you are.
She also wrote an elaborate Instagram post explaining her relationship with best friend Priyank Sharma. The repercussions were that the VJ has to face a lot of criticism and hate comments on her Instagram post. Since the last few days, everything she did on social media was welcomed by hate comments and backlashes from people who once used to be her fans. As a result of such massive attack on social media, Benafsha Soonawalla disabled comments on her Instagram account. No user can post comments on her pictures. We’re not sure if this change in her Instagram is permanent or short-term.
