Talking to SpotboyE.com exclusively, Eijaz Khan said, "I didn't see a single episode, so I can't comment on that. But ye proxy ka system hi mujhe samajh nahi aaya. Like how can we expect Devoleena to enter and start behaving like Eijaz Khan because she is my proxy. If I would have also entered as somebody's proxy I would have tried to give my best with all my strength and tried to be in the game and I am sure she did the same."

Eijaz also went on disclosing the real reason behind him not returning to the show, "I was not in the discussion directly with my makers but my managers. Secondly, I was busy shooting day and night, so I wasn't really aware what exactly was going on. I had no idea what Devoleena was doing inside and who was being called to support her. I was clueless. Ye proxy ka poora system hi mujhe samajh nahi aaya. But I was doing what was in my hand. I was working hard and shooting most of the time so that I can complete my work as soon as possible and get myself available for the makers so that they can plan my re-entry. I was available on 6th but what changes were done, I think they would have a better answer for it but according to me, I missed that quarantine window because of which I couldn't go inside."
The actor also spoke to us about how hurtful it was for him to not be into the finale, "It was very difficult to accept that I couldn't make it to finale. Everyone's journey inside the house has been tough. But sabko apni hi journey sabse zyada tough lagti hai. Sabko yahi lagta hai unhone sabse zyada mehnat ki hai. Mujhe bhi aisa hi lagta hai. Jitna samajh mein aaya maine waisa hi khela. If the game was about to showcase your real personality, I think I have done it well. I shared a lot about my life. I at least wanted to be one of the finalist. Bura lagta hai but one has to move on in life."
