Abhishek Kumar was announced the runner-up of Bigg Boss 17
Bigg Boss 17 runner-up Abhishek Kumar has once again spoken about the slap incident with Samarth Jurel. He did so during his media interaction. Abhishek says that while people consider him a hero, he is guilty for what happened. It is to be noted that Samarth and Abhishek sorted out their differences ahead of the grand finale too.
What Abhishek told the media
During his interaction with the media, Abhishek said that while people have made him a hero after the slap incident, that is not how it should be. “Galat hai woh cheez,” he said. Abhishek then said that he is guilty for what happened, because he did not intend to slap Samarth but it came as his reaction.
Samarth-Abhishek sort out their issues
Samarth and Abhishek had sorted their issues out ahead of the grand finale episode. During a task with Krushna Abhishek, Samarth and Abhishek danced on each other. Before the task, Abhishek apologized to Samarth for the incident. Samarth in turn also said sorry to Abhishek for his behaviour in the house. With that, they both turned cordial towards one another.
Samarth’s entry pained Abhishek
Samarth Jurel entered Bigg Boss 17 as Isha Malviya’s boyfriend. This was at a time when Abhishek was still not over his ex-girlfriend. Isha had refused to accept Samarth as her boyfriend on the show initially and once she did, Abhishek was left heartbroken. Soon after, Abhishek-Isha-Samarth got into fights. Samarth would also often fight with Abhishek on behalf of Isha, which led to bitterness between the two boys. They all worked together on Udaariyaan and initially, Samarth and Abhishek shared a good bond but that kept getting weaker, till the point where Samarth felt hurt on the show after the slap. However, all’s well that ends well and it looks like there indeed was a happy ending for this trio.
