Kanchi Singh went on social media to give a shout-out on
Twitter to her friend Hina Khan, this morning. We spoke to Kanchi, few hours
Excerpts from the conversation that followed:
There's so much chatter about Hina Khan on social media.
I know, and why? Why are people targeting her, and that too so much? It is so easy to sit in judgment and so difficult to be in that house.
If Hina even cries inside the house, people make fun of her. But baba, she is only venting her emotions. In fact, this all so much proves that she is a real person. I think people are imagining her as Akshara of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. For Pete's sake, HIna is not Akshara in real life. Hina's detractors should be put inside Bigg Boss house and then asked if Hina was indeed wrong.
How do you know that it's difficult to be in Bigg Boss house? You haven't been inside ever...
But hasn't Rohan Mehra (Kanchi is in a steady relationship with Rohan, who participated in Season 10) gone inside? He is very close to me and I know how difficult it was for him to come out of it.
Add this to Hiten Tejwani, whom I met in an Apple Store after he was evicted. He said: Kanchi, don't even ask how tough it is to be locked inside the Bigg Boss house?
Let's take it point-wise?
One, Hina said that the South filmmakers need bulging heroines- and I think it all began from there...
Yeah, you are right, it all began from there.
And, Hina was wrong in saying that South filmmakers need bulging heroines, particularly the way she said it.
But kaun doodh ka dhula ha andar? Toh har contestant galti karega, aur kar raha hai. Didn't Shilpa Shinde say that Marathi actors are very egoistic, but was she castigated for that? No, na? Then why HIna only, and as I said, woh bhi itna sara? I am not saying that Hina was right and Shilpa was wrong. Both were wrong, but all I am saying is that why weigh them in different scales?
Karan Patel lambasted Hina...
I don't know Karan, but whatever he said was not in good taste.
You mean he should not have said such things about a girl?
Why only girl? He should not have said such things, even for a boy. Karan should mind his language. I would never speak like that in my life. It is not necessary for him to like Hina--- but he should choose his words before opening his mouth. Kisike pichvade mein dum hai kya? Didn't he say that? Is that the way anybody should talk?
You said you don't know Karan, but you must have met him in parties etc?
Two, its' being felt that Hina considers herself as classy and others as massy. So basically, she looks down upon people...
Why people are saying such things is beyond my comprehension. Hina has said 'Mujhe uski ya iski level pe nahin girna hai' but aren't such things sad in day-to-day life, so often? I don't think any other season of Bigg Boss till date has witnessed so many things being said inside.
Are you saying that this season has been the dirtiest?
Not dirty, it has been the most difficult one.
Three, Hina made some disparaging remarks against Arshi Khan about her clothes, etc...
Have you heard what all Arshi said? If someone says such things about me, would i keep quiet? No, I wouldn't. I think Hina tried her best to keep her cool, but after a point... (trails off).
Four, her admittance to having a relationship with Rocky Jaiswal is to garner more eyeballs and remain in the news...
Arre, yeh kya baat hui? Then, you should also go and catch Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. who never admitted for 4 years that they were in love and spoke about it only when they parted ways.
Even my relationship with Rohan became public when Rohan was inside Bigg Boss house. God, this show judges people so much! Don't be surprised if after this interview, you and I are also judged!

Five, Hina called Shilpa as 'heartless'.
What's wrong in that? It's not a disqualification to be practical in life. Besides, Shilpa is another strong and real person inside (pauses). She has played the game independently and she is cute.
Six, Hina declared that she would win Bigg Boss 11...
God, that's only her self-confidence. Why are Hina's virtues not being seen? She has not abused even once inside the Bigg Boss house, she has not spoken ill about her colleagues' families. And while Bigg Boss has been criticising her color, weight and few other things- she has stood tall and fought.Let me give you one concrete example of Hina's realness....
Hina Khan And Rohan Dadlani
Hina hasn't liked Akash Dadlani from Day 1--- but she has been very clear about that. When they started talking recently, did she even once say that 'he is my friend and I love him'? She has only been plain cordial to him, since then.
Hina is like my elder sister and I respect her immensely. If not Hina, Shilpa should win Bigg Boss 11. That's that!
