Kamal Rashid Khan (KRK), a participant in
Bigg Boss 3
, which ended recently, says he had his cellphone with him the entire time he stayed in the “inaccessible” house. The filmmaker-actor, told
in an exclusive interview that during the show — based on the premise that housemates are not allowed access to the outside world — he was in constant touch with his family and getting regular updates about what other contestants were up to.
“I took the phone both times I entered the house,” he says, adding that the other inmates never suspected as he used it discreetly. When asked if the channel knew, he says, “I don’t think so. But if they pay me Rs 2 crores, I can show them the footage where I am using the phone, and tell them my modus operandi, so that they are not fooled by anyone in the next season.” He adds, “I cannot live without a phone even for a day.

KRK reveals that during a task on the show, when an inmate was made a secret agent by the
, he got a message on his phone informing him that it was Vindu. He says, “My phone was really small. Since I could not charge it, I carried 10 batteries.” When asked if anyone, apart from family, knew about the phone, he named actor Suniel Shetty and reality star Rahul Mahajan.
“When Suniel Shetty and Akshay Kumar came on the show, Suniel even asked me
‘phone kahan chhupaya hua hai
.’ When I came out, Rahul Mahajan had asked me, ‘
Tune yeh kaise kiya
?’ KRK’s fellow inmates expressed shock at the disclosure. Parvesh Rana says, “If I knew he had a phone, I would have made a few calls myself.” Aditi Govitrikar says, “I’m shocked. I never had a clue that he had a phone.” The channel
refused to comment.
