"I have recently renovated my home and now that it is ready and done, I am calling my friends over. Last evening, Sanaa and her mother were here and we had a nice time chatting and catching up" says Rajev over the phone in conversation with TellyBuzz.
Sanaa has been keeping a low profile after her recent controversy where she was accused of being involved in a minor's kidnapping case after which she went underground for some days till she got bail and came out of hiding. Rajev clarifies, "She is not into hiding any longer. I had always maintained that she is innocent and she has proved it too by coming out. I don't wish to speak much about this but I feel that ultimately truth will prevail."
Rajev says he always had confidence in Sanaa as a person and believed in her talent and skills even when they were in the Bigg Boss's house, "Even when we were inside the house I saw potential in her and believed in her talent. I always supported her and told her that she will be in the top three finalists of Bigg Boss Season 6."
Their friendship was always speculated as being more than they just being good friends, to which Rajev says, "I cannot stop people from talking otherwise, but we both have always maintained that we are nothing other than good friends. We are fond of each other and we speak to each other on a regular basis. I respect her and will always stand up for her. Whenever she has a problem I will always be there for her… that is what friends are for, right?"
Rajev is also happy that his friendship with Sanaa whom he also calls Baby Khan survived all the storms that they faced together inside the Bigg Boss house and they stayed in touch with each other even after the show came to an end. From a reality show they were back to face the reality in their respective lives, "In fact, relationship abhi pata lagti hai… once out of the Bigg Boss's house we come to know who our real friend is!"
Apart from Sanaa, Rajev has maintained contact with Navjot Sidhu Singh who too was his co-contestant in the Bigg Boss house and the host, Salman Khan, "I am in touch with Siddhuji and do talk to him once in a while. In Salman, I found great support when I was inside the house. All the love and respect that I have for Salman cannot be measured! He is currently out of town for his film's shoot but once he is in town I plan to meet him. I am glad that I got friends like these three due to Bigg Boss."
Leaving Bigg Boss behind him, Rajev is now ready to take a step ahead with his poetry being made into a music album, "I am soon releasing the music video of my poetry album in which I have acted too. Apart from this, I also got offers for various roles on Television but none were interesting enough. I am an actor and would love to do Television and films but only if I get something which excites me."
A renovated home, a music video to be launched and three new friends, Rajev sure has lots of things to look up to!
