Over the years, ‘Bigg Boss’ has always seen multiple contestants emerge as a couple post the show. While the show definitely gives a push to one’s career it also helps many find love. It was the same case for season 11 contestants Priyank Sharma and Benafsha Soonawalla who recently made their relationship official. Priyank recently revealed for how long he has been dating Benafsha.
In a live session with India Forums, Priyank opening up on his relationship with Benafsha, said, “Benafsha and I were actually seeing each other since ‘Bigg Boss’, but a lot of people didn’t know about it. We didn’t ever want to come out till the time there was some surety and we were figuring ourselves out. And I must say, it’s been a good 2.5 years. We found each other inside the BB house and wanted to take our time to make it tighter as a relationship.”
Priyank and Benafsha’s relationship had grabbed eyeballs when his “then girlfriend” Divya Agarwal from ‘Splitsvilla’ came in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house and broke up with him.
But he clarifies that it was all showbiz and the creative’s brainchild and he never dated Divya in the first place, “First of all, I did a show like Splitsvilla, where actually nobody dates. In fact, no one has ever dated anybody in the last 12 seasons of Splitsvilla. That girl who was never my girlfriend and who I never dated, it was a show, people need to understand we do something for entertainment stuff, I am not saying that the bond was wrong. There was a lot of affection but that was a show, we came out of the show, we cleared out our differences. I cleared it out in front of people that I was moving on.”
Well, we hope that clears the air now. We are very happy to see Priyank and Benafsha together.
