Zubair Khan: Bigg Boss 11 Is A Fake, Scripted Show
Bigg Boss 11 contestant Zubair Khan filed a police complaint against Salman Khan after his ouster from the Bigg Boss House and in an exclusive interview with SpotboyE.com he explains why he took that step
We spoke to Zubair as he exited the police
station and he explained his actions in the Bigg Boss house which made him the
most-hated contestant and his decision to drag Salman into a legal tangle.
Excerpts: How is your health now? My condition is really bad. I am unable to eat anything.
The pills had an adverse reaction on my stomach. My liver was already swollen
and now it has gotten worse. Was it a suicide attempt? I did it because I just wanted to get out of the house.
Or else they would have just locked me inside. So I created this chaos. My
family is so upset by the way I was treated that they wanted me to go and slap
Salman on the Bigg Boss stage.
Why did you file a complaint against Salman Khan? I have filed a complaint against Salman Khan and Colors
as they have defamed me on national television. I am not the son-in-law of any
gangster. In my audition video itself, I had cleared the air.
So you are saying that you are not Haseena Parkar’s
son-in-law? Yes. In my first AV, which aired on the very first
episode of Bigg Boss 11, I cleared the rumours. In September 2011, an article
named me as the damaad of Dawood Ibrahim and it ruined my career (Pauses).
Go on... There are many other bad things happening inside the
house but Salman targeted me. Bigg Boss is not a reality TV show; it is a
completely scripted show. First they ask you to give masala- fight, crack
jokes, patch up and when you do that Salman Khan takes your class. Whenever I
used foul language, they aired it on Colors to portray me as a villain.
Public vote was not in your favour and that's why you got
evicted... That is fake news. They didn't eliminate me. I was kicked
out of their show. After I took the pills, they took me to a private
hospital instead of a government hospital. They wanted to cover up the
incident. Dr. Kamat treated me. Four security guards were around me till I
reached Mumbai, so that I could not call the media. I was brought to Mumbai in
an unconscious state. And while I was still under observation, Colors and
Endemol had the audacity to tell me to go back to the sets and shoot with
Salman. I asked them, ‘Will he apologise to me onstage’. They said ‘No’. So I
told them, ‘Ok then I too am not interested’. They told me that I have signed a
contract. I said to hell with it.
Where did you file the complaint? Antop Hill, my Ammi stays there and I have that address
on my residential proof. I will travel to Lonavala to file the complaint again.
The cops told me that the incident happened there, so the case has to be
You were criticised for abusing Arshi Khan... Yes I did, because she was reading the Quran while
wearing revealing clothes. I told her not to do that. And then she spat in my
food. That was when I lost my temper. She provoked me to do that. But they did
not show the reason for my outburst; they just aired the part where I reacted.
I can't stoop to the level of Eijaz Khan and Swami Om to keep myself in the
show. But they wanted me to be seen as a villain.
Did the other contestants try to stop you when you
consumed the pills? They were all busy celebrating because Salman Khan had
fired Zubair Khan. And later everyone faked concern and took me
inside the confession room and asked Bigg Boss to get me help.
When Salman Khan lashed out at you during Weekend Ka War,
why didn't you take a stand then? Because I knew that the second episode will be shot the
same day. I worked as a supervising producer for reality shows for
two-and-a-half years. And I expected him to calm down in the next episode. I
expected that he will speak politely. But that didn't happen and then I lost my
temper and took the pills.
You had a good equation with Hina Khan, did she take a
stand for you? She is like a sister to me but unfortunately after the
confrontation with Salman, everyone including her chose Salman Khan
over Zubair Khan
Sameer Antulay (Dawood Ibrahim’s family member) has also
filed a complaint against you... I don't know why they did it. I have never said that I am
Dawood Ibrahim’s relative. My in-laws stay in Uran. And now this Antulay is trying to grab headlines with my
name and fame.
Parting shots? Bigg Boss 11 is a fake show; they find controversial
people to create chaos inside the house to gain TRPs. The participants are
people who have no work outside. I was free so I decided to say ‘Yes’ and also
because my family is a big fan of Bigg Boss. They used me for TRPs. Bigg Boss
is a fake, scripted show, it has nothing to do with reality.
