Sana Khan is the latest inmate to be evicted from the Bigg Boss house. The model-actress is the first “challenger” to be ousted after the show introduced its Halla Bol version. The actress tells us that she went inside the house as a positive person, but the experience of having stayed there has turned her into a negative person. “ I went in with the notion that I’ll be myself, but the show doesn't allow you to do that. It is very different from what it seems from the outside. Those inside the house can go to any extent to win,” she said.
Though she would have liked to be a part of the show for a longer period of time and reach the finale, the “two-faced” contestants posed a huge challenge. “Nobody in the house is being their real self — they are all doing things keeping in mind that they are under constant scrutiny of the camera. People who were bad mouthing each other are now close to each other,” she says referring to Rahul and Dimpy’s sudden proximity.
Unlike the time she was a regular contestant and in the limelight, this season Sana was only a voice in the backdrop. Was she afraid of rubbing people the wrong way and bringing up unflattering episodes of her past? (She was accused of kidnapping in 2013).
“I don’t think I have a controversial life. I took time to open up as I’m not the kind of person who will gel with strangers very easily. I took my time to find my comfort zone and by the time I had, I was out,” she adds.
Upen and Karishma are in the spotlight for their recent lip locking on screen. Does Sana have a thought about that? “If a girl is in a serious relationship for two years, and is kissing and cuddling a male contestant without even breaking up with her partner, all I can say is that she is doing it for the cameras. The show will get over in a span of two weeks. Can’t they wait until then to show their love for each other?” she asks.
We asked Sana what she thinks of Farah taking over Salman’s role in the reality show.
“Once Farah hosts the show for a year, she will finally get the hang of it. Stepping into Salman’s shoes was a brave decision and she should be applauded for the same. People are judging the host at every step and Salman has created a mark for himself,” she says about Farah Khan playing the host.
Salman has supposedly mentored quite a few contestants from the BB house. There were loud whispers that Salman Khan recommended Elli Avram’s name to director duo Abbas-Mastan for their comic flick opposite Kapil Sharma. So why is it Sana hasn’t bagged a meaty role yet? “Being recommended by Salman and getting to play a role in his film are two very different things — I have starred opposite Salman Khan in his home production and that in itself is more than enough,” she said.
