EXCLUSIVE: Sumbul Touqeer ACCUSES Shalin Bhanot, Tina Datta of using her: They came only with that plan
Sumbul Touqeer became the latest contestant to get evicted from Bigg Boss 16 house. The young 19-year-old actress has had a tumultuous journey in there. Two of her most rocky equations were with Shalin Bhanot and Tina Datta. Post her elimination from Bigg Boss 16, Sumbul Touqeer got in an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Bubble. There she spoke about Shalin, Tina and how they hurt her.
Sumbul Touqeer on Shalin and Tina using her
When asked if she ever felt that Shalin and Tina used her, Sumbul answered in the affirmative. She said, “I think they planned it. I don’t know why but I have a feeling that they planned all of it together. Yeah, of course, I felt that. Isliye dobara meri dosti karni ki himmat to chodo, karni bhi nahi thi. To mera ye tha ki jo bhi cheezein hui, we are coexisting in the same house. It’s just that ki main respect karti hun aapki opinions ko but it doesn’t mean main aapke actions ko justify kar rahi hun kahin se bhi.(That’s why I never wanted to be friends again with them. I was like whatever happened, we are coexisting in the same house. Just because I respect your opinions, doesn’t mean I am justifying your actions.)“
She explained it with an example. She shared, “Agar maine Tina ke favour mein Shalin ke liye kuch galat bola hai, iska ye matlab nahi ki main Tina ke saath khadi hun. Dono ko hi nahi samajhta kuch bhi mere ko aisa lagta hai. (If I say something against Shalin favouring Tina, doesn’t mean I stand with her. Both of them don’t understand anything). They used me. I can’t say they used me, but somewhere they did. I am trying to be very polite here but I can’t do anything about it.”
Sumbul on her equation with Shalin being misunderstood
During the initial days of the journey, Sumbul had a fun equation with Shalin. She respected him a lot, but many people mistook it for being romantic. So, when asked if that judgement became difficult to endure, she said yes. She replied, “Mushkil bahut chota shabd hai uske liye. Mujhe samajh nahi aa raha tha main kya karun. Main aaj bhi wo moment yaad karti hun na, mera gala bharne lag jata hai, aankhon mein aansu aate hain. Because I can never accept the fact ki mere saath ye cheez hui hai ghar ke andar. (Difficult is a very small term for what I felt. I couldn’t understand what should I do. Whenever I remember that moment even today, I get a lump in my throat and water in my eyes. It’s because I can never accept that such a thing happened with me in there).”
She added, “Mujhe kabhi nahi laga tha ki jo main dil se puri genuinely ek dosti kar rahi hun aur wo itni galat tareeke se backfire ki jayegi ya fir uska itna galat matlab nikala jayega, Till date, I remember ki maine hamesha ye topic ko thoda sa avoid kiya hai because it hurts me a lot abhi tak. (I never thought that a whole-hearted and genuine friendship that I made will backfire on me like that and will be misconstrued. Till date, I avoid this topic because it still hurts me a lot).”
