Nikki Tamboli, who is currently away in Cape Town in South Africa for stunt-based reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 11, suffered a major loss as her elder brother Jatin, passed away due to COVID-19. The actress decided to make the choice between quitting and continuing by choosing to go for the show and Bigg Boss 14 co-contestant and good friend, Rubina Dilaik feels that she is a woman of exceptional strength.
In an interview with The Times of India, Rubina added how she is a very strong girl and she had learned a lot from Nikki. She recalled how she told her during Bigg Boss that he has not been keeping well and he had a surgery and was bedridden for a long time. While he was stable when she came out of the house, he contracted Covid-19 and was in the hospital and the way Nikki managed to handle everything was inspiring. She added how she does not even let work hamper.
Rubina revealed, ''I think many people don’t know that her brother was suffering for a very long time and she was suffering with him but she never gave up. It was heart-wrenching to know that she lost her young brother yet she went for Khatron Ke Khiladi because she had committed to doing the show. The way she’s handling all this at such young age is really brave of her. She’s doing good for herself and I am proud of her and I know she is going to shine."
As for Rubina, she has been currently recovering from the virus and added how she is looking forward to go on treks, look at the greenery and enjoying being alone, among other things.
