"Obviously, I was very hurt reading how I was trolled for showing affection for Aly. They abused me saying Aly was much younger than me and almost my son's age. But I replied to each of them saying if you like someone, how does age come into play?. I have no hesitation in confessing my true feelings and I don't regret admitting that I liked Aly." Sonali Phogat also shared, "I did not play the game by lying. Whatever I thought, I shared with everyone. When in two weeks, I was told to leave the house, I wasn't sad about leaving, but at least I played fairly."
