Bigg Boss 14 finalist and second runner-up Nikki Tamboli has said that her ex-boyfriend was shocked to find out that she kept his boxers even after they went their separate ways. Nikki had brought his boxers to the Bigg Boss 14 house and clarified that it wasn’t any publicity stunt or marketing gimmick.
In an interview, she spoke about carrying her former boyfriend’s boxers and said that he had reached out to her after the show ended and was surprised at her deed. Nikki said, “He told me, ‘Oh really, you have my boxers? I thought you'd forgotten my face’.” She told the radio host during the interview that she liked the shorts and not the man whom the garment belonged to.
Previously, talking about bringing the boxers to Bigg Boss 14, Nikki had said, “That was not a strategy to highlight myself. I was genuinely missing him. When I was going inside the house, I knew that I was going to miss people who I love. So I had taken my father's clothes as well along with my ex-boyfriend's boxers.”
Nikki further said, “So, we had a break-up a long time back and I haven't seen him for the longest time. However, I was staying with my father before I went inside toh unko itna jaldi miss nahi kiya (so I did not miss him so soon). Mujhe us din mere ex-boyfriend ki yaad aa gayi (I started missing my ex-boyfriend) after seeing so many different personalities inside. So, I thought chalo uske kapde pehan leti hoon. Lekin vo world-famous ho gaya (let me wear his clothes. But he became world-famous).”
Nikki recently lost her brother Jatin Tamboli and shared the sad news of his demise on social media. Her co-contestants like Jasmin Bhasin, Aly Goni and others sent her condolences post Jatin’s demise. Mentor Hina Khan also empathized with Nikki’s loss as she recently lost her father as well.
