Mahek Chahal didn’t get the money, but she did get her man! Right? Didn’t she?

The item girl’s boyfriend proposed to her onstage at the Bigg Boss 5 finale, but left us wondering how real the show actually was

We’ve always had our doubts about reality shows, especially Bigg Boss 5, being not-so-real after all. Either way, you would think that the grand finale will have some sort of realistic feel to it. Sadly, the finale and what happened later simply reaffirmed our suspicions. Mahek Chahal’s long-time boyfriend Danish Khan took this opportunity to propose to her on stage in front of millions of TV viewers. He even went down on one knee! The blushing item girl was thrilled and eagerly accepted his proposal, much to Danish’s delight and the roaring approval of the live audience. So what if she didn’t win the prize money of Rs 1 crore? She had got something much closer to her heart.

When she met the media after the event, that should have been the hot topic of discussion, no? Nope. The statuesque beauty spoke about everything else – Sunny Leone doing Jism 2, Juhi Parmar being a deserving winner “as she was the only one of us who had been in the house for the full 98 days”, her “beautiful time” in the Bigg Boss house, how her friendship with Siddharth Bhardwaj developed after he accepted his mistakes, her wish to forgive and forget Sky over time, the lesson she learnt in the house that “no matter what you say, people will believe what they want to believe”.  There was not one line about Danish’s proposal. Even when she discussed her future career plans or the more immediate party plans, she didn’t mention Danish. Was the entire proposal so fake that it had slipped her mind just an hour after it happened? Or did her sorrow about losing the show outweigh the joy? Then there is the other little matter about her contract with Bigg Boss 5. “When I was eliminated, I had got several offers (movie and TV shows), but I told them that my contract with the show was not over and I had to go back inside the house, so once the show ends, only then I can consider the offers,” she said. Does that mean she knew when she was eliminated that she – not Shonali Nagrani, not Lakshmi Tripathi – will be the wild card entrant? Makes you wonder about the reality in the reality show, doesn’t it? We just hope the proposal was genuine and Mahek has really found true love at last.

    The BB contract doesnt end until the last day of BB (the finale)… all of the contestants must be present. Unless you’re banned like Pooja Bedi! LOL!

    Danish is her real bf… now fiance. She did a couple interviews about it after. theyve been dating for 4 years.

    MAHEK SHOULDVE WON BB5 NOT JUHI! but Mahek is the true winner!

        agree, mahek deserved to win, she was made to lose to save bigg boss from allegations that it all fixed!! im disappointed, ppl will always say wrong things but that shouldnt change your decision

    The contract says they may come back as wild card entry if chosen by voters. So, whether it is Mahek or Puja Misra or Bedi, they have to stick to that. That is how they are paid for the season.
    Why so much against Mahek? She is the one of the best in the Bigg boss 5 season and so is Sid, Amar, Raageshwari, Vida, Shradda.

    the writer of this story seems biased and indirectly saying that Mahek knew about going back to the show. Where it is simple thing and if uses their head would know how contracts are constructed. simply she is under BB5 contract till the show is completely over. doesn’t mean she knows she will be 100% going back. same rules applies to all other eliminated housemates.
    also Mahek is a private person. she did not talk about her personal life on the show and she hardly brought up her parents and siblings in the show. it is understandable that she was pretty shocked by the proposal of her long time boyfriend and it is her personal happiness shared by her closest ones. and also we all know by now she is very professional as she discusses the show every time interviewed nothing else. she is not crazy and flamboyant and psyched up like Pooja Bedi who goes haywire about everything. Mahek is very composed and balanced so anyone insinuating about her any secretive agendas of knowing anything in advance is an idiot.
