Paras Chhabra: There are no romantic feelings for Mahira Sharma and my relationship with Akanksha Puri is over

For Chhabra in a sincere conversation he talks about Mahira Sharma, his ex-girlfriend Akanksha Puri and how 'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge' is about being pampered by him. Excerpts

Your relationship with Akanksha as you stated inside the house is almost over.

My relationship with Akanksha Puri was in its last leg before I entered the house. We were having problems from past few months. When I was entering the show I told Akanksha, we will discuss about these issues after the show is over. I don't understand why she is claiming that she was sending my clothes and handling my flat and bank accounts? Akanksha knew that things are getting over between us and it was not because I had gotten a show that I was planning to break up with her. Also, I was doing two shows earlier - Vignaharta Ganesh & Aghori , so I was financially secure & not dependent on her. I have never asked her to look after my flat or bank accounts or belongings. I came to know later that Akanksha was choosing my clothes & sending them. I was never requesting her. If she was my girlfriend then she did not have to go on record that she was doing all this for me. What was her reason to prove to others that she was doing things for me?

Do you see a future with Mahira Sharma? Mahira & I were just friends inside the house & I will maintain that. I have no romantic feelings for her. She was my confidante & support inside the house. For four months, anyone will go mad if you don’t befriend someone inside the house. People assumed that we were a couple but that’s not true. I am looking forward to meeting someone who will be compatible. More than finding a girl in 'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge', I am looking forward to all the pampering in it.

You opted for ' big boss 'before the janta can reject you. Why?

Last two days were stressful in the house. There were no tasks remaining to be done inside the house & so people won’t judge you for it. Whatever that is left, will be based on audience votes. It was wise to opt out because I could have never survived the kind of fan following Sidharth Shukla & Rashami Desai enjoy. They have done so many television shows & it would be foolish to compete with them. In fact, we all felt that Arti Singh would be part of the last three finalists, because she had played the game really well. But, in the end it comes down to voting & I felt it was important to move on.
