Evicted contestant Mahek Chahal, who had a strong bonding with "Bigg Boss 8" contestant Gautam Gulati, had a few nice things to say about the suave contestant.

"Gautam is most genuine. He has shown all sides of him on the show. He has made people laugh, cry... so he comes across as very natural. He has a good chance of winning the show," PTI quoted Mahek as saying.

An untimely victim of mid-week eviction, the "Nayee Padosan" actress' stint in the mad house was nothing short of tumultuous. During her first week she bonded with co-challenger Sambhavna Seth, which turned sour after the latter felt hurt over her decision to nominate her for eliminations.

This apart, the gorgeous actress-model locked horns with Ali Quli Mirza who made inappropriate remarks on her career, for which he was reprimanded by host Farah Khan. However, they did iron their differences over a mature conversation.

"I am not disappointed at all. The voting lines were open only for a day so that is fine. It is the fag end of the show. Last time was a very unpleasant stay.. there were a lot of issues. This time I actually enjoyed. I was very relaxed and had a lot of fun," she said.

Mahek also strongly believes that any Challenger winning the show would be unfair for those who have survived the cut throat competition for weeks. She also reportedly said that KT's love for Upen and vice-versa isn't staged and that the "Grand Masti" actress would never do something that would affect her image on national television.

"I remember the day I was entering the Bigg Boss Halla Bol house and also whenever I met Upen on the sets, he kept chanting only one thing Karishma...Karishma...Karishma. Before entering the house he met and told me to take care of her. He also sent chocolates along with many other things for her," she informed Deccan Chronicle.
