Soon after Bigg Boss 11 got over, finalist Vikas Gupta had said that he would divide his prize money, Rs 6 lakh, between fellow contestants– Arshi Khan and Jyoti Kumar.
“I will give them Rs 3 lakh each. Jyoti stood by me like a rock when the whole house was against me. Arshi, too, was protective of me. She cared more about me as a friend than the show,” Vikas had said at the time.
However, a tweet on one of Bigg Boss’ fan pages claimed that “Vikas did not gift his prize money to Arshi or Jyoti as he had promised and it was a fake publicity stunt by him to gain more sympathy and attention.”
When Arshi was asked about it, she tweeted: “Ok. This is what I said to @TheKhbri after they dm’ed me repeatedly. And yes, I don’t need it. Never did. Peace ”
