Bigg Boss 14 wild card contestant Sonali Phogat was eliminated from the house early this month. During her short stint inside the house, the digital content creator-turned-politician Phogat often expressed her feelings for co-contestant Aly Goni. Time and again we have seen Sonali speaking publicly about her love for Aly while calling it a one-sided love story. Now during her latest interview, Sonali opened up about getting trolled for showing affection for Aly. She revealed that she was abused as he was her son’s age.
She told ETimes, “Obviously, I was very hurt reading how I was trolled for showing affection for Aly. They abused me saying Aly was much younger to me and almost my son's age. But I replied to each of them saying if you like someone, how does age come into play?. I have no hesitation in confessing my true feelings and I don't regret admitting that I liked Aly.” She further revealed that she could have hid her feelings but she preferred not to.
She added, “I did not play the game by lying. Whatever I thought, I shared with everyone. When in two weeks, I was told to leave the house, I wasn't sad about leaving, but at least I played fairly.” Sonali also opened up about Nikki Tamboli and said, "The way Nikki teased and targeted me saying, 'who is she? She is a nobody and just a stupid woman and she should get out,' I ignored her for long thinking she is younger to me. But one day I had enough and I replied to her in her tone. I don't think I said anything abusive, like Salman Khan told me that I should not have abused, but if we don't reply in words, staying silent will not help."
Towards the end, Sonali said that she would break down after fighting with them, as everyone saw on TV. “I realise that I shouldn't have said those things to them. Fights do affect your image, but I did not leave an unpleasant impression like Arshi Khan or Rakhi Sawant did. I stayed true to my character and honesty.” (ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 14: Wild Card Entrant Sonali Phogat Gets Eliminated From The House In The Absence Of Host Salman Khan)
