Producer Vikas Gupta, who emerged as the second runner-up of the recently concluded reality show Bigg Boss 11, is all set to break the notions that relationships and friendships forged inside the house are all make-believe. The former creative head of &TV has reportedly said he wants to give away his prize money to co-contestants Arshi Khan and Jyoti Kumari as they were his true friends through the game.

Vikas received Rs 6 lakh in cash and wants to give Rs 3 lakh each to Arshi and Jyoti. He told Bombay Times in an interview, “Yes, I will give them Rs 3 lakh each. Jyoti stood by me like a rock when the whole house was against me. She shouted at each one of them saying, ‘No one will say a word to my Vikas bhai’. I got so much courage from a 20-year-old girl, who hails from a small town in Bihar. That incident gave me enough strength to survive in the house. Arshi, too, was protective of me. She cared more about me as a friend than the show.”

While Jyoti stayed in the game for a mere few days, Arshi stayed in the game till the last month. Arshi also had her share of fights with Vikas and even turned against him during certain tasks. However, after she was voted out of Bigg Boss, Arshi was extremely gracious while talking about Vikas in all her interviews.
