Big Boss season 11 contestant, Zubair Khan has been evicted from the house, after a heated argument took place with show host, Salman Khan.
He was eliminated due to less votes in comparison to other nominated contestants. Well, that’s what was portrayed on the national television, but its alleged that it was due to an attempt to suicide from Zubair Khan’s side as he swallowed a load of pills and was rushed to the hospital; that got him evicted from the house. In a deep conversation about the Big Boss house after he was discharged from the hospital, he revealed quite a lot about how mentally tortured he felt inside and just how fake the whole show is, in reality.
Zubair Khan claimed that he will definitely file a case against Salman Khan, “I am going to Lonavala to file a complaint against Salman. It’s a fake show. They tell the contestants what to do.”
Furthermore he added, “Salman Khan is a puppet and can dance shirtless for money. I am not Vivek Oberoi who will get scared of him. I am also not Arjit Singh who will say ‘sorry bhai’ on social media. I went in the show as a director. I didn’t know they are introducing me as Haseena Parkar’s relative on the channel.”
Well, on his relations to Dawood Ibrahim and Haseena Parkar, Zubair says he never claimed it was so. “Six years ago, I said this live on a TV channel. My wife’s name is Sana Khan and mother-in-law’s name is Noor Jahan. I never said anything. Now, if they’re related to Dawood Bhai, you should ask them.”
He further says, “If I wanted cheap publicity, I could have done it before the release of the film I made, Lakeer Ka Fakeer, by taking such names. I never said anything at that time. This is the channel’s ploy to use Dawood’s name.” Furthermore adding to the queries on whether he is related to the underworld dons? “See, if somebody works in the film industry, people ask them have you seen Salman, Shah Rukh? In the same way, I have grown up in Dongri, Imambada and Nagpada.”
When asked whether he was thrown out of the Big Boss house, he denied it and claimed, “I have left the Bigg Boss house, nobody evicted me. Salman Khan threatened me on camera that he won’t let me work. There’s a saint inside the house, Shivani ji, nobody came to her rescue when she was disrespected. People are scared due to their contract.” Then he changed his flow of conversation towards another contestant within the house, directing his anger towards Arshi Khan, he said, “The contract says that you can’t say anything against religion. Arshi Khan is disrespecting the religious texts. If Vikas Gupta is gay, this is his personal choice. Salman Khan talked about these things, but the only thing shown on the channel was his conversation with me.”
He adds, “Salman says how can I abuse someone? You go to YouTube and write Salman Khan giving gaali in public, you’ll find videos. In fact, he did it around Bajrangi Bhaijaan also. You search all the footage and tell me if I said I am Dawood’s son-in-law.”
He also commented that he will never return to the show. “They were calling me back. When I attempted suicide after argument with Salman Khan. I came here for my family, for my wife and kids. These guys are only showing ‘gaalis’. If I wanted I could have said him a lot of things on the national television. I said too. But they were edited.”
He tried to establish himself as a self-made individual as he spoke about his past life, “I was a child labour in a theatre. I sold ice-candies in Pahlaj Nihalani’s theatre called Nishat. I have done many odd jobs to become a director. My father was not Salim Khan. Salman Khan’s isn’t the almighty who will write my fate.”
Reacting on the news of being charged by the producer of Haseena Parkar’s biopic, against him for saying that he was the producer. “Samir Antule (Haseena Parkar’s co producer), who is filing a case against me, should go and ask the channel. If I wanted to take advantage of Dawood’s name then why would I live with my mother! Who has Pradeep Sharma arrested in the extortion case? Dawood’s brother, not me. I have been a journalist. I have done undercover investigation.”
Lastly, He wasn’t too bothered about the contract he had signed before entering the house. “The contract was of two years. I would have gotten Rs 25,000 every week. After two years, I would have gotten Rs 50,000 every month. Free ka paisa kisko bura lagta hai!”
He adds, “The contestants are mentally prepared, brainwashed. They don’t give access to any clocks or watches or TV. They get taken to 2-3 different hotels. I wasn’t getting a chance to retaliate, so I took all my pills.”
Well, seems like here’s yet another contestant who seems quite miffed with the whole show, Big Boss and the host, Salman Khan as well!
