During elimination task in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11, Arjun Bijlani, who was supposed to do elimination stunt, was given an advantage as he won K-medal and was asked if he wanted to exchange the medal instead of performing the task. Arjun said yes and chose Sourabh Raaj Jain, who was pitted against, Anushka Sen and Mahekk Chahal. Since Sourabh took most amount of time compared to the other two, he was eliminated from the show. This didn't go down well with Abhinav Shukla and Shweta Tiwari as they felt it unfair to take Sourabh's name, who has never failed any task or left it incomplete. Sourab felt that Arjun should have taken Nikki Tamboli's name as she was just back in the game without performing any task and aborting them all previously.
Not just netizens, even Sourabh's wife Riddhima too felt it was unfair to take the actor's name for direct elimination despite never failing to perform a task. Take a look at Riddhima's post and netizen's and Arjun's tweets.
Sourabh’s Wife Ridhima Calls It Unfair
Ridhima shared an Instagram story that read as, "Very rightly said @sourabhraaj.jain 'Fear Fanda stunt kharab/abort karne se mile ya planning se...karna to hai!!' Well done to your spirits!! Question to all.. putting Sourabh Raaj Jain in direct elimination round when he completed all the stunts never got Fear Fanda, never Aborted any stunt... is this correct? Is this justice?"
Netizens' Tweets: @ButterfulyxLuv
"#SourabhJain was really playing amazing and I wish he would've stayed longer! Not having any pblm with Arjun using K medal... Arjun was right from his side as he was just using the power he earned last week by performing good in the stunts! What I did not found right with Arjun was him using the power in elimination round against Sourabh & saying it was not his intention, etc! I really feel he shld ve used his power in current task, him knowing the fact that he can't handle that current at all....... #KKK11."
@AwaaraMajnu, Ayu & Reema
@AwaaraMajnu: #SourabhRaajJain was a good player & a good human being. It was unfair eviction. They've favored Arjun way too much.
Ayu: Like what the hell. Sourabh didn't deserve that yaar.... So bloody unfair. Usey wapas bulao. Otherwise it's not done.
Reema_S: Unfair elimination with strong player ... This is truth. #SourabhRaajJain #KKK11Unfair2SRJ.
Arjun Bijlani Responds
When pointed out it was unfair for Arjun to choose Sourabh, Arjun tweeted, "I won the k medal to be saved from the elimination stunt .. later the twist was I have to choose someone. So I did that . When Souraub was eliminated I knew a lot of people will find it unfair . I truly wished he hadn't .But yes u have a right to have an opinion."
