After the weird nomination last week, MTV VJ Benafsha Soonawalla, who was nominated along with Hina Khan and Sapna Chaudhary, was evicted from Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 11. Isn’t it funny that Benafsha, who has a decent fan base, has lost the game despite a commoner like Sapna Chaudhary was nominated? This led to speculations that boyfriend Varun Sood has influenced the channel to evict Ben from the show as he was too insecure due to the closeness between Priyank and Benafsha.Also Read - Dear Bigg Boss, Stop Parading Your 'Biscuit Men' Shirtless, It's Sexist And Ridiculous

The MTV VJ grabbed eyeballs while she was inside the house for her closeness with co-contestant Priyank Sharma, and even post-eviction, she is making headlines by giving clarifications about her relationship with Priyank Sharma to save her relationship with boyfriend Varun Sood. Benafsha had exclusively told India.com, “With Priyank Sharma, it is pure friendship. I want all the rubbish rumours and ridiculous statements, that people are making, stop right away,” adding that, “It was all a joke when I said, Accept kar le, mujhe pata hai tu mujhse bohot pyar karta hai (Accept the fact that you love me, I know you do). It should have been taken in a healthy way than linking us with each other.” ALSO READ: (Exclusive!

However, making an attempt to prove Varun that she loves him immensely and there’s no one else who could take his place, the VJ, in a statement to SpotboyE, said, “Priyank is like my brother yaar!!!” Well, just like us, even Bigg Boss ex-contestant Kishwer Merchant is amused by the fact that Benafsha, while inside the Bigg Boss house, was trying to make Priyank confess his feelings for her and post-eviction, she claims that he is her brother! Not just Kishwer but many other are amazed by Benafsha’s double standards. The ‘Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan’ actress took to Twitter to write, “What pagalpan (madness) this is! She says it was a joke and a little drama.”
