Bigg Boss 11 runner-up Hina Khan on calling Sakshi Tanwar cross-eyed: I am a big fan, comment misinterpreted
TV star Hina Khan, who was the first runner-up on Bigg Boss 11, had quite a graph on the show. The Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai started as a crowd favourite but lost some of her sheen along the way. Most of the negative reactions can be chalked up to comments she made about south actresses and her TV co-stars. A comment that especially didn’t sit well with the TV world was her calling Sakshi Tanwar cross-eyed. Her comments against Gauahar Khan and Sanjeeda Sheikh also earned her flak. Hina, however, is now claimed things may have been interpreted in a wrong way.
She also seemed to be trying to build bridges with Shilpa Shinde, who clinched Bigg Boss 11 trophy. The two shared a difficult relationship on the show. The actor also shared a photo with her family and boyfriend Rocky.
While Shilpa has said she would never want to meet Hina Khan in her life, Hina said in a press briefing after the Bigg Boss 11 finale, “Do hi jan reh gae the yaar, kitna ladenge (We were just the two of us, how much can we fight)? Even at the party, we were very cool and I was chatting with her brother. Aunty (Shilpa’s mother) was very nice to me. It’s all cool, it just a game. What is important is what we learnt and earned from the experience.”
Claiming she never called Sakshi Tanwar names, Hina added, “I am a big, big fan of Sakhi Tanwar. Maybe it was interpreted in a different manner and the conversation was started by someone else. But I am a big fan of Sakshi Tanwar and I really respect her. I will clear out other things as I get to know about them. What you see on the TV is just 45 minutes of footage edited from a 24-hour-long video.”
Here’s the video where Hina is seen talking about Gauhar, Sakshi and Sanjeeda:
“I always said I will be in the top five so becoming the first runner-up was a great achievement. I am not disappointed at all. It was a tough competition. Just because a few viewers voted more for someone doesn’t mean I am any less important or popular. Or for that matter, anyone else in the game was any less.”
When asked about her equations with the co-contestants after stepping out of the house, Hina said, “We all (Bigg Boss 11 contestants) are planning a trip. We will not reveal the destination but we have all decided to leave behind all our fights and differences and enjoy the trip like friends.”
“One big thing I learnt inside the house that we should always mend our relationships. We all have people we have fought with and have stopped talking to. I want to mend bridges and hug it out with everyone,” Hina said.
