Actor Kushal Tandon, who was evicted from reality show Bigg Boss, on Wednesday, for allegedly being violent towards co-contestant Andy, has lots to say. The model-turned-TV actor says that he is a fan of the show’s host, actor Salman Khan, but feels that he is partial towards housemate Tanishaa Mukerji, as she comes from a film family.

Last week, Tanishaa had angrily pushed Kushal away after he had called her “fatso, haathi, kachra and flop actor”, after which Salman lashed out at him for disrespecting her. “I am a huge fan of Salman but I think he’s a bit emotional, like me. He must be good friends with Tanishaa’s sister (Kajol) and husband (Ajay Devgn), so he’s biased,” says the 28-year-old.

“Tanishaa hit me and Armaan used expletives, but they’re still in the show and I am out because I took a stand for Gauahar? Huh! Duniya dekh rahi hai kaun sahi hai aur kaun galat,” says Kushal. On being asked what Andy really did that pushed his buttons, Kushal reveals that he lost his cool when Andy pulled out Gauahar’s lingerie from her bag, and started asking her all kinds of offensive questions.  “How could I stay quiet after that!?” he asks.

Kushal is sure that the public will vote him back, and when asked about his chemistry with Gauahar, he says, “Yes, of course, we’re more than good friends. Main unhe bohot pyar karta hoon.”

Meanwhile, the public has started an online petition on change.org, asking for Kushal to be brought back to the house. The petition has been signed by 1,556 people so far, who feel that it was unfair to evict him.
