The gorgeous Parsi girl, Benafsha Soonawalla who entered the show aiming to bag the trophy got evicted in November 19 Weekend Ka Vaar. Being pitted against two strong contestants, Sapna Choudhary and Hina Khan who have huge fan following, Ben says that she didn't quite expect her eviction. Recently, her closeness with fellow contestant, Priyank Sharma grabbed eyeballs and many believed that this may be a reason behind her negative image. While some viewers believed Ben and Priyank's PDA was genuinely a blooming phase of romance, others called it a mere publicity gimmick.
The eliminated contestant has now opened up on her eviction and much-talked about chemistry with Splitsvilla- fame Priyank in a conversation with indianexpres.com. When asked about her elimination, Ben 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.''
Bigg Boss 11: Benafsha Soonawalla and her boyfriend Varun’s mushy romance on Instagram will melt your heart
Spilling the beans about her relationship with Priyank, the MTV VJ called it a ''big fat joke''. ''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, said Benafsha.
Speaking about boyfriend Varun Sood, Ben said that he is the only person who stood beside her and trusted her. Ben said that she will talk to Priyank's girlfriend to get things clear. When asked about her friendship with Hina, she said, ''It was for real but a friendship of convenience too, as she has done a lot of bitching about me behind my back''.
