Former Bigg Boss 14 contestant Abhinav Shukla has said that singer Rahul Vaidya, who was the first runner-up on the reality show, "didn't deserve to be in the top 2." Abhinav Shukla's wife, actress Rubina Dilaik, was declared the winner of the 14th season of Bigg Boss last month. Abhinav told Pinkvilla, "Rahul Vaidya definitely did not deserve to be in the top 2. He was the one who had quit the show midway, he was the one who left the house. But I think he went outside and saw it all, understood how his fan following were growing and that is why he re-entered the house after regaining his lost confidence but that was wrong and unfair to the other contestants, who were a part of the game show since day one and did not quit midway."
For the uninitiated, Rahul Vaidya had quit the show in December, citing he was feeling "homesick", but re-entered the house to continue the game. Abhinav Shukla thinks he should have been in the top 2 instead of Rahul Vaidya.
"I would have seen myself there in the top two in his place. I was the one who was there since day 1 and made sure that my game changed smartly. I brought about more diversification to my personality- from shy to bold, I have myself seen my transition and unlike a lot of people who re-entered the show and created over-the-top drama, I was there doing my job without creating drama and made it till the end, almost."
