Bigg Boss 14 witnessed a couple of exits and entries this season and some of them happened to be rather sudden. One such exit was that of Bigg Boss 10 contestant Manu Punjabi, who had to make an exit due to his health issues.
Now, reports have it, that Manu was asked to be a proxy for this season's contestant Eijaz Khan, who exited the show due to his prior work commitments. However, he refused to do so and entering the show as the actor's proxy was Devoleena Bhattacharjee.
While talking to The Times of India, Manu spoke about the same, and said, ''Yes, after Eijaz’s exit the show makers asked me to enter as his proxy. But I said a clear no to them. Why will I enter as someone’s proxy when my own game was left? I left due to personal reasons and now entering as someone’s proxy didn’t seem right to me.''
He further also spoke about the reports on him entering as Eijaz's connection and revealed that he did not feel like going inside the house as a family connection as the actor himself is not there. He added further how he feels that would have looked like a desperate attempt at entering the house. He was also asked about his favourites and added how Eijaz Khan and Rubina Dilaik are his favourites but Rahul Vaidya is playing a good game.
