Former Bigg Boss contestant Aashka Goradia has alleged that the reality TV show Bigg Boss had wrongly portrayed as a lesbian by broadcasting a misinterpreted version of her relationship with fellow contestant Sana Khan.
She launched a tirade in a chat show, Juzzbaat, hosted by Rajeev Khandelwal. “I was putting my hand inside her blanket so as not to embarrass her about her rash on national television and they made it look like something else was going on. At that point, I was inside the house as per the show’s format and wasn’t even around to defend myself. When my mother visited me, she told me about how I was being depicted in the media and how everyone had started questioning my sexuality.”
Aashka had entered the Bigg Boss house in August 2012 and left the show in November. However, her short stay in the reality TV show gave rise to many speculations on her relationship with Sana. In one sequence broadcast by Bigg Boss, she was seen applying balm on Sana. This in particular led many to wonder if she was a lesbian.
In a statement issued to IANS, Aashka said, “I was rubbing balm on a sick fellow inmate’s body after she had broken into an allergic reaction.”
This is not the first time she has had to give clarification on her reported relationship with Sana. In December, while speaking to Mid-Day, Aashka had said, “I always treated Sana as my kid sister. She was crying in the house when she got allergy and Bigg Boss did not send any medical help for her. She started developing blood clots and I was just trying to comfort her because she was completely broken. I used to apply medicine to her and I don’t think there is anything wrong in it.”
Aashka had shot to fame with with TV show Kkusum in 2003 before acting in Kahiin To Hoga, Saat Phere and Naagin. She got married to Brent Goble late last year. Post her wedding, Aashka went for globetrotting and has been regularly posting photos of her escapades.
