'Salman scolded me (but) he took my side as well. He just told me, 'Don't forget what kind of a person you are. Be yourself' and that I should not hit anyone as it is wrong.'
Priyank Sharma, who was evicted from Bigg Boss 11, hopes to return to the show.
Priyank Sharma has been evicted from the Bigg Boss 11 house amid rumours that he will be back.
Host Salman Khan evicted him from the show during the Weekend Ka Vaar episode after he allegedly physically assaulted co-contestant Akash Dadlani after an argument broke out between (another contestant) Vikas Gupta and Dadlani.
"I am out of the show. I have no idea if I am coming back to it or not. Let's hope for the best. I'm keeping my fingers crossed," Priyank says.
"He (Salman) knows me. He scolded me (but) he took my side as well. He just told me, 'Don't forget what kind of a person you are. Be yourself' and that I should not hit anyone as it is wrong. They (the channel) don't want to promote that (hitting anyone) through the show. So I got a piece of advice from him," Priyank explains.
Zubair Khan, a contestant from the same season who walked out of the house, had alleged that Salman had said Priyank would be back on the show but this was not shown on television.
To this, Priyank says, "Nothing like that happened. I don't know why he is saying this; nothing has been confirmed by the channel or Salmanbhai. I would love to be back on the show but that doesn't mean I will be back. If the channel approaches me again, I would love to go back."
The former Splitsvilla contestant says the atmosphere inside the house is not affable and it is tough to stay there.
"There was so much negativity; there are mad and weird people inside. It's a mixed feeling (referring to his early exit from the show). I watch Bigg Boss. I feel I am still there but I am not. It's not a good feeling when I see the show. I have made friends inside the show and I support them," he says.
As far as housemates like Arshi Khan, Shilpa Shinde, Puneesh Sharma and Akash are concerned, he says he does not consider them his friends.
