It was a love-hate relationship which the hosts of Ekta Kapoor and Anand Mishra‘s MTV BCL; Shardul Pandit and Benafsha Soonawala shared. What started off as an angry battle for the limelight, ended in Benafsha writing a super sweet post about Shardul being one of her best co-hosts. “In the initial two to three episodes, Benafsha hated me as she used to come to me every day, and say. ‘You just take the entire footage.’ But by the end of the season, Benafsha put up a post saying that I was one of most entertaining co-hosts she has ever worked with and I already had got that feeling since Benafsha’s mad and is totally crazy. We shared that same young energy between the matches. We would just be chilling, bitching and gossiping and now we have both become crazy friends. In the Holi party, we went mad just dancing on the stage. I think that she is on energy drinks!” says Shardul.
There was also talk about something going on between the two. When asked Shardul says, “Yes, there’s a lot of love and respect that I have for Benafsha, and it is more than friendship. I think that Benafsha’s damn cool and hot but it depends on Benafsha and not me.”
When asked if he would rather date Arshi Khan or Benafsha, he says, “Dating one girl would not be enough for me. I definitely would not choose as they both are very different. It’s like asking someone to choose between Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.”
