Bigg Boss 14 contestant Eijaz Khan: I will definitely be the last man standing


If I was a people pleasing person, I don’t think they would have cast me. I won’t back down. My birds, who come home every day for breakfast. I feel terrible that they would be thinking that I abandoned them. I don’t know if I will win but I will definitely be the last man standing. All I can say is that I feel my core has been realigned. I have recently started to pray five times a day. I lost both my dogs and so I will miss my friend’s dogs, who think I am their daddy. All one can do is be good, and do what needs to be done. As I know whatever happens, will be for the good. Written by Sana Farzeen

Eijaz Khan was last seen in web show Mayanagari-City of Dreams. It was important for me to talk about it. What can we expect from you in Bigg Boss 14? I feel I might be making some tall claims as we will only know what happens once the show kickstarts. Given you spoke about it a few days before entering Bigg Boss, do you feel some contestants might judge or use it against you? I will believe that people are not so heartless that they have such a perverse attitude. Here are some excerpts from the conversation:
You have been approached for Bigg Boss several times over the years. However, if they do, I cannot change them. I don’t feel scared about what’s going to happen. If the makers or Salman bhai engages me in a conversation, I would love to address it. Honestly, I always thought I was quite woke but I lost my sleep before I went public with my issues. All I can do is thank god and hope to enjoy the experience to the fullest. Do you think you will be able to survive in the show with so many strangers? Everything seemed to fit amazingly. 📣 The Indian Express is now on Telegram. I think over the years, we have learnt that the house always wins. Also, only a few, and very lucky ones are getting to make money this year. I don’t know. I was scared so I opened up. There is just no conversation around this subject, and it’s so important.

You recently opened up about your mental health issues. Any strategies that you have planned? This show has its own share of controversies but we cannot deny it has an amazing reach. From going against ‘Toofani Senior’ Sidharth Shukla in the task, taking a stand for himself when it comes to house duties to even keeping the boys together, Eijaz garnered attention in Tuesday’s episode. Also, Bigg Boss is the biggest platform and the safest workplace right now. I will be honest, there is a lot of anxiety and nervousness but I am very grateful to have this opportunity. I have taken a different life approach and now plan to do all those things that scare me, or things that I felt were not cool enough for me. And if you are nice, that doesn’t mean you are harmless or powerful. What made you finally give in?https://images.indianexpress.com/2020/08/1×1.png
There are so many reasons, and the biggest being that this year has been a game-changer. I can feel it in my bones that I am back, and I can’t wait to be on the show. It means that you chose kindness even when you could be a monster. I was scared and I took up Bigg Boss. I really hope they will understand. That’s the only way to save many lives in today’s time.

What would you miss the most in the show? I hope they don’t use this against me or try to trigger me. © IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd

Eijaz Khan Will you take the opportunity to spread awareness about the same on the show? I really feel that only when you can get over your fears, you are able to grow. I think the year has taught us the importance of being kind. I would love to but it’s an entertainment show, and I wouldn’t like to hijack it. I can only imagine what the youth goes through.

For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App. I’m feeling healthy, and now just waiting for amazing things to happen to me. Colors reality show Bigg Boss 14 features Eijaz Khan, Abhinav Shukla, Rubina Dilaik, Jasmin Bhasin, Rahul Vaidya, Jaan Kumar Sanu, Pavitra Punia, Nikki Tamboli, Sara Gurpal, Shehzad Deol and Nishant Singh Malkhani as contestants. Like the season’s theme ‘scene palat chuka hai’, I also needed to change. I am a straight forward person, and if that gives way to friendship or enmity, we will have to see. I am not a messiah and I feel there are more important people who can talk about it, and we should also force this conversation. Before entering the show, Eijaz spoke exclusively to indianexpress.com about taking Bigg Boss 14 as a challenge, his strategy and why he will choose to be kind on the show. Not at all.
