In an exclusive interview with India Today, Sumbul Touqeer finally reacted to the accusations of her being 'obsessed' with fellow contestant Shalin Bhanot. According to the young actress, the accusations left her sad and scared, as she was never expecting that. For the unversed, the duo shared a great friendship during the initial episodes of Bigg Boss 16. However, Sumbul's 'obsession' with Shalin became a topic of discussion during one of the Weekend Ka War episodes, and this eventually led to a series of ugly fights in Salman Khan's show. 

Sumbul Touqeer, who opened up about the disturbing episode, stated the accusation was painful. "I was very hurt because I never expected that. I've always given my 1000 percent to every friendship and woh main kabhi Isliye nahi karti ki mujhe badle mein kuch milega. Meri dosti mere nazron mein bahot selfless hoti hai. I love doing that. Even if I cook food for them or hang their clothes or anything else, usse mujhe khushi milti hai," she explained.

"I was very hurt and, simultaneously, I was thinking about my father. How he must be feeling jab yeh dekhenge. Aur unki kya haalat hogi. I was more scared for him. I was completely lost. I don't even remember ki mujhe kya feel ho raha tha," she cpncluded.
