Tanisha Mukerji’s stint on reality show Bigg Boss was marred by reports of her family being unhappy with her decision to participate in it. The actor claims that, on the contrary, they were happy for her. Fresh off the reality show, where she was the runner-up to Gauhar Khan, she says, “I’m feeling blank and numb with so many people asking me so many questions. I’m excited to be out of the house and see my family.”
Question her about reports of her family asking host-actor Salman Khan to have her evicted from the house and she clarifies, “They were never against me doing the show, but they were being protective like any other family. They just wanted to keep me safe as this was unexplored territory.”
Gauhar and fellow house inmate Kushal Tandon may have openly professed their love for each other, but Tanisha is reluctant to speak about her bond with another co-contestant, Armaan Kohli. The two shared kisses, hugs and several cryptic conversations on air, but Tanisha denies any relationship.
“He’s my best friend and was there for me in the house. We are close, and the whole world has seen the rest on TV, so they can draw their conclusions. I won’t say any more.”
Speaking about her experience on the three-odd- month reality show, Tanisha says, “I learned to believe in myself and not let others’ opinions change me.”
