Abhinav Shukla was the only real contestant in Bigg Boss 14: Arshi Khan

Bigg Boss 14 has finally ended with Rubina Dilaik claiming the coveted trophy as this season’s winner. However, there were quite a few contestants who also earned name and fame; one of them was Arshi caught up with Arshi and in an exclusive interview spoke to her about her Bigg Boss 14 journey and her equations with Rahul Vaidya, Aly Goni and Abhinav Shukla.

Arshi, who had first appeared in Bigg Boss 11 as a contestant was introduced this season as a challenger to enliven the game. Talking about what was different from season 11 to season 14 Arshi said, “Season 11 was better and more entertaining. There were more relationships built during the show and people maintained that, there was more masti and more entertainment. However, this season people did not make relationships and there was definitely a lack of entertainment from their end, there was no ‘nok jhok’ between the contestants.”

She also spoke about Abhinav Shukla and said he was the only real contestant on the show. Talking about Abhinav, Arshi said, “Abhinav ek aisa banda tha jo hamesha se same tha. Dikhne ke liye usne koi kaam nahi kiya, woo jaisa hai waisa hi tha. But challengers ke baad logon ne apna game change kiya and spark lagane wala pehle koi nahi tha but hamare aane ke baad sab kuch badal gaya (Abhinav was the same from day one. He did not change inside the house, not even when the challengers entered the house. He stayed the same. When the challengers entered to give a competition to the original contestants many changed their game to enliven things up inside the house).”

She also spoke about the disadvantages the challengers faced during Bigg Boss 14. Arshi said, “Challengers ko bahut disadvantage tha as hamein pata nahi tha ki kaun kaisa thai. But content create nahi karna tha, real rehna tha and log react karein and samjhe ki yeh acha insaan hai (Challengers were at a disadvantage as we did not know how are people, but we were supposed to remain real and not create content and that proved beneficial).”
