Mumbai: Bollywood aspirant Elli Avram of Swedish-Greek origin, who has been eliminated from the `Bigg Boss - Saath 7` house, can`t hide her gratitude for the warmth that the reality show`s host and Bollywood star Salman Khan`s extended to her.
"I don`t know why he was so nice to me. He is a big superstar. And his kindness meant a lot to me," said Elli, who was evicted Saturday.
"I think he sensed that I was all alone in `Bigg Boss` house. The only foreigner. He helped me feel comfortable in `Bigg Boss` by just the way he spoke to me. Of course, I soon became comfortable in there. I`ve learnt a lot of Hindi in there," she added.
She comes away from Bigg Boss with a good feeling about most of the inmates.
"My friends say, I find everyone to be good and likeable. But I can`t help it. I don`t have unkind thoughts about anyone inside the `Bigg Boss` house."
"Yes, there were stressful moments and ugly scenes with some of them. But it was soon okay," she added.
"If you ask me, who my special friends are I`d say Hazel Keech. She was the first to leave Bigg Boss house. But during her last three days in the House we really bonded very very well. Hazel is someone I`d like to meet again now that I`m out of the house," she said.
Another close friend Elli has come away with is Ratan Rajput.
"She sent me a sari for Diwali and I wore it for my farewell episode on `Bigg Boss`. I hope Ratan was watching," said Elli who is also fond of Sangram Singh and VJ Andy.
