Sana said the duo's sudden closeness after Upen's re-entry on the show after getting evicted last month, is hard to digest for the housemates and the audience. "It does not look authentic to me at all. If the audience does not feel it is real, how can it be? Everything has a logic but this (Karishm-Upen closeness) was so sudden. Whatever it is, I don't feel it is right," Sana told.
The Jai Ho actress, who was a challenger on the show, however, feels the romance rumours will help Karishma to remain ahead in the game. Sana also thinks that presence of Rahul Mahajan in the Bigg Boss house will help his estranged wife Dimpy's chances as the audience might get interested in the story of their relationship.
"I am sure the next to be eliminated is Mahek Chahal, even if Karishma and Dimpy are nominated along with her. Karishma will benefit from the romantic angle with Upen and Dimpy will stay because Rahul is there, so they have their own story," she said.
Bigg Boss Halla Bol sees five contestants from previous Bigg Boss seasons, termed as challengers, which are competing against top five contestants, called champions, from Bigg Boss 8 - Gautam Gulati, Pritam Singh, Karishma Tanna, Dimpy and Ali Quli Mirza. Sana said she was left confused by the show's concept as they did not get equal powers compared to champions.
"I am honestly confused with the concept of Halla Bol. We are not given power to nominate champions. We have to do all the work in the house. So, how will we challenge them? We all had our targets when we entered the house but we cannot do anything. It is not equal play between champions and challengers," she said.
Sana said she is rooting for Pritam for the win and does not feel any challenger has the chance at the trophy. She, however, feels Rahul is the strongest challenger on the show. The show is now left with five champions and three challengers, including Sambhavna, Mahek and Rahul.
