We were all taken by surprise when Priyank Sharma was evicted from Bigg Boss 11 in the weekend gone by. We had certainly expected him to stay on till the finale at least. But, a few wrong moves, we suppose, costed him the game. Anyway, while inside the house the choreographer-turned-actor got riled up in a lot of controversies– whether it was his early eviction (the first time) for pushing Akash Dadlani, his wild card entry, his much publicised break up with, now ex-girlfriend, Divya Agarwal or his “friendship” with Benafsha Soonawalla. Priyank and Ben’s friendship definitely made headlines. While they knew each other from before, they got really close on the show. Rumours of their relationship being more than just friendship started doing the rounds when Ben accidentally slept off on Priyank’s bed with him. And while that issue kept coming up, during his stay in the house, Priyank spoke about it in the most candid way possible post his eviction. In fact, he spoke about a lot of things — his equation with Vikas Gupta and Hina Khan and his relationship with ex-girlfriend Divya Agarwal. He revealed that he had broken up with Divya in the period when he was evicted from the house for the first time.
Well upon Benafsha’s exit from the show, she had caused a lot of eyebrows to be raised when a portal reported that she considers Priyank her brother. Even though Ben clarified it later that she would never call Priyank her brother, it kind of stayed on. Now, post his eviction, Priyank during a media interaction said, “Benafsha and me have a beautiful relationship, we pull each other’s leg. Voh hum masti-mazak karte hain. I know it has been portrayed like she was after me but let me now say it, I love Benafsha Soonawalla more than you love me girl. I have earned her in this show though I know her since beginning.” Additionally, he emphasizes that he is not her brother and that he it’s just friendship with her.
