When Bigg Boss 14 started, former BB contestant Gauahar Khan, Hina Khan and Sidharth Shukla had entered the house as ‘toofani seniors’. The BB14 contestants not only got to learn a lot of things from seniors but also ended up having tiffs and good bonding with Gauahar, Hina and Sidharth. Eijaz Khan, who was also a contestant in Bigg Boss 14, had shared a good equation with Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla in the show.
Eijaz has not been positive about Bigg Boss ever since he left his journey in between. He had to come out of the show before finale due to professional commitments and could never get back to win the show. Now in an interaction with the Times Of India, Eijaz Khan spoke about how he get triggered whenever he watches Bigg Boss and also reveals how the demise of Sidharth Shukla affected him.
Khan told TOI, “The more I see Bigg Boss or its contestants, I get triggered. I am still getting over everything that I went through inside that house. I am still figuring out what all I felt. Suddenly, I keep getting dreams about the house, I dream about Sidharth (Shukla) sometimes. His demise also affected me a lot because I was very close to him back then. Sometimes I dream about the fights that I had. They were so cruel. I am not that cruel a person. I’d rather live and let live.”

The actor further added, “I relive the trauma sometime and that is why I try to stay away from that universe consciously and not because my therapist asked me to. I feel, I haven’t processed a lot of things yet, because after coming out, we didn’t live a normal life. After coming out, again there was a lockdown, so it was only Pavitra and I. We keep reminding each other about Bigg Boss and we never got on to live that normal life where we had any kind of escape of venting out to another person – it’s happened but very less, not how situations were during the pre-COVID days.”
He concluded, “I will talk about Bigg Boss, I will want to watch the show, I will see it objectively and laugh about it. If I am talking about trauma, I also feel that I wanted to complete my journey, I wanted to be the person who switched off those lights, wanted to be in the top 2, I miss that. The urge is still there within me because it wasn’t fulfilled. I didn’t get any closure. Sometimes, you just see a person in BB, you like them, sometimes, you just don’t like the vibe around them.”
