The chirpy, happy-go-lucky girl, Benafsha Soonawalla came into Bigg Boss 11 trying to be as optimistic as possible. But staying in BB house ain’t an easy task, despite not wanting to be part of the dirty politics; she ended up getting involved in it.
Finally, she became quite active when the host of the show Salman Khan started pointing how she wasn’t seen much in the show. The MTV VJ soon started taking sides and started being vocal about her perspectives.
Later she created a buzz in news with regards to her closeness and intimacy with Priyank Sharma. That was something that caught everyone’s attention. While some felt Ben and Priyank looked great together, some also felt she was trying too hard to gain everyone’s attention. And finally she was evicted from the show.

While Ben certainly didn’t expect that her journey would end so soon, but one’s got to admit that she was pitted against two strong contenders like Hina Khan and Sapna Chaudhary who any day had more public votes. In an exclusive chat with MensXP, Ben revealed, “I got nominated out of the Bigg Boss house because of pulling ahead of the contestants. There are a lot of people who deserve to be out of the house….Puneesh, Bandgi.”
Talking about her experience in the house she shared, “Overall experience was lovely but I think I lost track towards the end. I wish I could change it.”
Giving out details of what was cooking between her and Priyank, a topic that grabbed everyone’s eyeballs and got her flak as well, she went on to say, “There was absolutely nothing cooking between us, this is why it is pissing off. I understand it might have looked little wrong. It might have looked we are more than friends. But we live in that house 24 hours, there is a lot that audience doesn’t get to know. It was all a joke and we did it all for fun and then we used to laugh. Hum ek dusre ki tang khichte the (we were just pulling each other’s leg). It was nothing serious, it was nothing big. I really hope it gets clarified somehow.”
When it came to talking about Puneesh Sharma and Bandgi Kalra’s blooming love she says, “I think it was planned before but now it’s genuine. I hope that they don’t cross any line. Kyunki bohot baatein chal rahi hai un dono ke baare mein bhi (Talks are going on about these two as well). So I really hope they don’t cross any line because of their love story.”
The popular VJ was nominated after she pulled Akash Dadlani’s hair in a fight, something that many of us remember. When asked about revealing one thing about few members of the house that she dislikes she revealed, “Hina: B*****s a lot about people. All the rumours that you see, she only starts it. Puneesh: When he gets angry, he speaks a lot of dirty things about people. Shilpa: She flips out when she gets angry. Bandgi: She should know when she shouldn’t cross her line when it comes to her and Puneesh’s relationship. Akash: Usko apna pagalpan kaam karna padega aur bewakoof ki tarah jo mooh mein aaye woh nahi bolna chhaiye, sochna chahiye (He should not just blather on like a fool, but learn to filter what comes out of his mouth).”
One thing she feels that everyone should know is that, “Priyank and Ben are just friend and whatever you saw was just for fun. We were just pulling each other’s leg.”
The young VJ also mentioned how she totally loves Shilpa and Vikas and believes that Hiten is playing really well.
