Mumbai: Growing intimacy between Sara Khan and Ashmit Patel on ‘Bigg Boss’ prompted Sara’s boyfriend Ali Merchant to react claiming that the romance on the tube is nothing but to garner much needed TRP for the channel.
Even as Ali states that the tenderness both Sara and Ashmit share is stage-managed, Ashmit’s publicist told Spicezee.com, “Ashmit is just being himself on the show. Nothing about him is fake or stage-managed. Even if his emotions were to be manipulated by someone on the show, he wouldn’t know it.”
Speaking to the media against the channel airing the reality show, Ali Merchant has alleged that the broadcaster is deliberately trying to project the Ashmit-Sara ‘relationship’ as a ‘romance’ by showing selective footage to the viewers.
“All that gets the channel the TRPs,” Ali has stated.
On the other hand, the ‘Bidaai’ fame actress Sara Khan publicly denounced her relationship with Ali, professing her love for Ashmit.
“Since it’s a reality show and almost everything’s on camera, it’s a very tricky situation for all involved. I understand how embarrassing a situation this is for Ali. I sympathize with him as it must be a PR nightmare for him. After the show, if he goes back to Sara, he would be looked upon as a weak man. If Sara goes back to him, her character could come in question. It’s a complete catch-22 situation, but since we are also talking emotions here, it’s not correct for Ali to blatantly blame the TV channel for his personal break-up,” Ashmit’s publicist added.
As for Ashmit’s stand, it’s evident from the show, that the debonair is taking things at face value and as they come. It seems, the Bollywood actor’s approach to Sara’s moves has been responsible and dignified. And probably that’s the reasons he has emerged as a total hit among the girls out there.
