Kushal: Stop calling all my exes into the Bigg Boss house
Kushal Tandon was asked to leave the Bigg Boss house after he grabbed housemate Andy’s neck in an act of violence.
After a Diwali break in Lucknow with his family, Kushal is back in Mumbai.
He sets the record straight on the controversy surrounding his exit.
There are rumours you will be back on Bigg Boss.
I am in talks with the channel but at the moment, I don’t know if and when I am getting back to the house.
Everyone is asking me to go back to the show. Getting such a good response makes me feel good.
After coming out of the house, I spoke to many people and they said they are with me and support my decision. Let’s wait and watch.

'I am glad that Gauhar went back to the house'
Are you apologetic about the whole exit drama? Gauhar Khan has gone back to the house.
Not at all. If someone disrespects a women in this manner, showing off a girl's lingerie and talking about the bust size, it is simply not done.
I am what I am and if anyone says anything to my friends, I will definitely stand up for them.
I have never abused or used foul language against any woman. I stood up not just for Gauhar, but also for Elli and Asif, when they were at the receiving end of Armaan's abusive words and bullying tactics.
I even supported Andy when Armaan was abusing him.
And I am glad that Gauhar went back to the house.

'Salman is the only person whom I respect and consider as my idol'
Host Salman Khan slammed you for being rude to housemate Tanishaa and also your attempt to escape the house over a fight during a task.
Salman has praised me too and said that I have a bright career ahead.
I do not say that Tanishaa's push injured me. But if you are discussing violence, all I did was grab Andy's neck.
I am an emotional person like Salman and I can relate to him. I understand his stand for Tanishaa, since he knows her from her childhood. I am sure even I would have done the same thing.
So you don’t have anything against Salman Khan?
Salman is the only person whom I respect and consider as my idol. He might be biased towards Tanishaa but everybody can see what is right and wrong.
Whatever he said that day was his personal opinion. I have nothing against him. And I think he has better things to do in life than keep a grudge against me.
Has Salman apologised for his behaviour?
Yes. He said sorry to me on the show. I heard it was not aired on the channel.

'I am very fond of Gauhar and we are good friends'
Are you and Gauhar more than friends?
Gauhar’s act (leaving the house) was a nice gesture. I am very fond of her and we are good friends. There is nothing more than that.
There is a buzz that your friend Elena Boeva will also enter the show.
I just want to tell the producers of the show that it is the Bigg Boss house, not Kushal Tandon's house.
I dated Candy Brar some 10 years ago. Stop calling all my exes into the house.
So what’s next for you?
People know me as Viraat in Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behna Hai and now they know the real Kushal.
I am getting lots of love from people. I was in talks for a Bollywood film before I went inside the house. Let’s see.
