“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.”
“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!”
says Our recently evicted, not-so-favorite contestant Zubair Khan to The Hindustan Times.
One of the famous contestants on the controversial reality TV show left the Bigg Boss house, as he commands, after a heated discussion with Bollywood Star Salman Khan who hosts the show, on Sunday. He was ousted after receiving the scarcest number of votes among all the nominated contestants.
Before Bigg Boss, it was promulgated that Zubair Khan is linked to Haseena Parkar (who died in 2014), gangland don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister. However, later reports claimed he was not correlated to Parkar. Zubair Khan states he never alleged 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. 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 seems absolutely mad at Bigg Boss 11 host Salman Khan, “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 refuses being thrown out of the program. “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.”
Zubair then tried to establish himself as a self-made person.
He says he won’t go back to the Salman 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.”
Zubair has also claimed that ‘Bigg Boss’ is “fully scripted” and banged it as a “fake reality show”.
