While his fans are rooting for him, there’s another friend and well-wisher of Eijaz who wants him to win. It’s producer-director Nivedita Basu, a long time associate of the actor. Recently Nivedita revealed details about Eijaz’s traumatic childhood and said that she was shocked that he agreed to be part of Bigg Boss.“He has gone through a lot in his childhood.

They had worked together in shows like Kahin Toh Hoga and Kkavyanjali. Jyothi Venkatesh
