Pavitra Punia is an Indian television actress. Her real name is Neha Singh.


Pavitra Punia and Eijaz Khan have been the talk of the town after they participated in Bigg Boss 14. From passion to possessiveness, the couple had shown every flavor of love in the reality show. Fans had witnessed it all. It was during the show that Eijaz clearly that he wishes to marry his ladylove at any cost and also said “Tu Jaise hai, Mujhe Qubool hai”. And since then the two have been painting the town red with their love. Today, in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, both opened up on many topics among which are the age gap and religion

Actor Eijaz said, “We do, we are normal. We discuss everything. There have been fingers pointed at us because of me being 46 and she is almost 14 years younger than me. Sometimes valid fingers, sometimes it’s none of their business And if they made it their business and they are speaking from a space of care I could have acknowledged that but most of the time it is nobody’s business. We will figure it out. When it comes to religion people come on our Instagram and leave a comment. Sometimes we do feel bad. But I think that those insults or stupidity is like someone is giving me something and it should not affect me if I am not taking it (logon ko Shayad Kam Kam hai jo Humare Instagram pe make ya Shayad Apni Vishesh tipaniyan chor jati hai. Kabhi kabhi bura bhi lagta hai lekin I think main vo insults ko ya uss stupidity ko main aisa leta hu jaise koi mujhe kuch de raha hai aur agar main use nai le raha hai tu mujhe fark nai panda chahiye.)”

He further adds, “I ignore it (Toh main ignore kar Deta hu). And yes if it is directed towards her in a bad way then my blood boils. I think whether I should react or am I giving more attention which he wants eventually (Mujhe Lagta hai main react Karu kya fir Mujhe Lagta hai main Usko Zyada attention de Raha hu. I mean negative attention hi Chah Rahe hai vo.) Then I don’t give (Toh Nai Karta hu main.) See those are fans and supporters. Now it comes to our family those are the people who matter and none of them have issues.

The reality shows Bigg Boss 14 has witnessed many emotions. Right from nasty fights to budding love between contestants, the show entertained the audience to the fullest. No one can forget Rahul Vaidya’s love confession for Disha Parmar on national television. And also Pavitra Punia and Eijaz Khan's budding romance in the show. They both painted the town red with their love. Eijaz had got super excited when Pavitra came to meet him during the family week. And now when Pavitra looks back and sees her journey in the show, she has mixed feelings.

Talking to Bollywood Hungama, Pavitra said, “Whenever I was asked about how the journey was inside, I would reply saying it was a very beautiful, but at the same time, very disgusting journey too. We used to sit with people and share our happiness, and sorrows. But another second we used to fight like cats and dogs. It used to ruin beautiful moments.” Recently, Pavitra Punia and Eijaz Khan were trolled for their relationship. But the actress has given back to trolls.

Eijaz Khan and Pavitra Punia’s relationship that started in the Bigg Boss house continues to grow stronger with each passing day. Their fans have seen the process of them starting their journey from immense fights and then eventually falling for each other. Undoubtedly they are one of the most loved couples on TV and fans are eagerly waiting to see them get hitched. On the occasion of Valentine’s Day Pavitra and Eijaz exclusively spoke to Pinkvilla and opened their hearts out about a lot of things.

On being asked about her first impression of Eijaz Khan, Pavitra Punia replied, “I did not see him for the first time in Bigg Boss. So I saw him for the first time on the Kapil Sharma show where he came to promote his show Yeh Moh Moh Ke Dhaage. I was watching that episode and I saw his mustache look and I was like ‘who’s this guy?’ This was my reaction and I was speaking with my manager and I was like ‘find out who is this guy, I need to talk to him.’ So I was really attracted towards him, that look, that personality, that aura. But then after that I saw him in Bigg Boss and talking about his first impression of me in Bigg Boss, I was like ‘dream come true, he’s here.’Answering the same question, Eijaz Khan said, “In the first week itself, I said, ‘Yaha hero heroine hai, main hero hu to heroine hai’. I knew it, I felt that chemistry, that energy and I felt that we could understand each other.” 

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air and is quite infectious too. On this note, Eijaz Khan and Pavitra Punia met on Valentine’s Day eve to glam up an event with their stylish appearances. The couple became the talk of the town after their stint in Bigg Boss season 14. Pavitra looked hot and beautiful in a shimmery gown. Her OOTD proved that there is no such thing as too much bling. Eijaz looked handsome as he wore a black shirt with matching trousers. He sported a blazer to complete his party look. The couple posed for the paparazzi as well. Singer and rapper Raftaar too spotted at the same event. He too acknowledged the paps and posed for them.

On the other hand, former contestants of Salman Khan hosted the reality show Bigg Boss 15, Neha Bhasin, and Rajiv Adatia were spotted together in Khar, Mumbai. They turned heads with their stylish appearances as they got papped as they arrived for a dinner date. Neha and Rajiv showed off their goofy side as well to the cameras. Neha wore a black dress for the dinner and Rajiv opted for a black outfit from head to toe. To note, the duo shared an amazing equation inside the house of Bigg Boss 15 and became friends too.

Pavitra Punia has been quite active on social media and she has been quite vocal about her personal life. The actress is often seen sharing stunning pics on her Instagram account and her love story with Eijaz Khan is a real treat for the fans. However, her recent Instagram post is grabbing attention for a different reason. In her recent post, Pavitra revealed that she has suffered a foot injury, is currently on bed rest, and shared a pic of her injured foot.

In the caption, Pavitra expressed her gratitude to her massive fan following for their recovery wishes. She also revealed that she has been taken care of by her main man Eijaz Khan. “Thank you for the recovery wishes. Gladly there is no fracture. Heading towards full recovery slowly. P.S- “Khansaab is taking all the precautionary care and taking care” @eijazkhan”. Soon she was inundated with recovery wishes from friends and fans. Naina Singh took to the comment section and wrote, “Get well spoon my baby” along with heart emoticons. Eijaz Khan also commented on the post and wrote, “tumko bulaoon, ye palkhen bichaoo, kadam tum jaha jaha rakho...., zameen ko aasmaan banaoo, sitaaron se sajaoon, agar tum kaho....”

Pavitra Punia was evicted from the Bigg Boss 14 house in a shocking move last week. The actress was one of the most promising contenders inside, however, her love and hate relationship with Eijaz Khan soon lost steam inside and also the audience’s interest. Defending that whatever Eijaz and she shared inside the house as a result of pure love for each other, Pavitra maintained that it was a budding equation that she treasures. In an exclusive chat, she also opened up on her ex-husband’s allegations against her. 

“Whatever was between Eijaz and I was pure love. The hatred that came out was out of love and nothing else. When you like someone, you have expectations, even without you realising. Mine and Eijaz’s relationship was based on pure love. Pyaar actually Bohut Bhaari word hai, it is a very beautiful relationship between us which I can’t describe,” Pavitra gushed and added, “Because of that we would end up in fights and I feel people liked our relationship.”

When asked if she has any regrets about her journey inside, Pavitra shared, “I don’t regret anything per se but there are some things you would like to share with someone you feel close to but given that this is the biggest reality show, you don’t feel like. You cannot discuss it because it will become a spectacle. That is one thing I regret, I wish I could discuss things with Eijaz.” But Pavitra assured me that this bond with Eijaz is here to say and there is “doubt about it.”Lastly, when asked about her ex-husband’s allegations against her claiming to be still married to her, Pavitra replied, “I just want to say that he is trying to take advantage of my fame for how. I have no comments. I will clarify things via a release soon. Till then whatever he wants to say he can.”

Television actor Sidharth Shukla passed away on September 02. His sudden demise has left many of his fans and celebrities shocked and heartbroken. Many of his friends had shared their beautiful memories with the late actor. Bigg Boss 14 contestant and actress Pavitra Punia also opened up about him and said that it is completely shocking. The actor was 40-years-old. Both had worked together in the serial Love U Zindagi. She was seen in the lead role but the show was only aired for six months.

As reported in DNA, the actress talked about the late actor Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill's relationship. She said, “The couple had a pure bond which people dream of. I wouldn’t say it was friendship or boyfriend-girlfriend. But their relationship was no less than any husband and wife. People will remember Sidharth-Shehnaaz. Their fans are crazy about them. I love Shehnaaz and Sid Jodi. I pray she stays strong to cope with the loss.”  To note, both had participated in the reality show Bigg Boss 13. Their popularity increased after their stint and fans fondly called them SidNaaz. It was also reported that they were supposed to get married in December this year but destiny had some other plans.

The actress further said that when we met in Bigg Boss, he told me he wanted the rowdy Pavitra. “Had he not asked me to bring the original Pavitra, I wouldn’t have lasted for a week in the house," she added. Today, Sidharth’s family has organized a special prayer and even requested everyone to maintain the family’s privacy.

As we are nearing the finale of Bigg Boss 15, the excitement around who will be the winner of this season is increasing with each passing day. Almost every other person has been voting and supporting their favorite contestant for them to lift the trophy. Even many celebrities have been openly supporting their favorite housemate. Well, the recent TV star who opened up about her favorite contestant was Pavitra Punia who herself has been a part of this show in the previous season. 

The actress was spotted in the city today and paps did not leave a chance to interact with her and ask Pavitra Punia about who is she rooting for in Bigg Boss 15. The moment she was asked this question, the actress did not waste a minute answering, “Sabko Pata hai TejRan.” (Everyone knows, Tehran). One of the reporters went on to ask about her opinion on Karan Kundarra and Tejasswi Prakash's relationship, Pavitra replied, “Bahut payara hai about Haseen hai…main Humesha bolti hu ki Mujhe unke Rishte ko Dekh kar Mujhe Apne Rishte ki Yaad Aati hai.” (It is very sweet and I always say that I remember my relationship when I look at their relationship). 

The popular TV actress and ex-Bigg Boss 14 contestant Pavitra Punia is loved for her strong attitude and charming looks. The actress was famous in the Bigg Boss house for her short temper and for often being at loggerheads with Eijaz Khan. But the audience also saw her emotional and sensitive side in the show. The actress is vocal about her thoughts and opinions, and she recently showed her anger on Twitter.

The Balveer actress has become distressed by the unnecessary abuses hurled at her by the trolls. The actress took to her social media handle to talk about this and hit back at them. The trolls have been dropping dirty comments for her and for many other celebrities, which is not tolerable by her anymore. Talking about the trolls, she posted a video stating that it is very irritating that anybody can come and say anything to them. People are not sitting there to hear the abuses of the trolls.

She had uploaded a video in which she talked about the problems in the lives of celebrities. She said that the trolls have no understanding of what is going on in the lives of people and the problems they are facing in their personal or professional life. They just comment and abuse them. She said that no one is sitting there to hear abuses.

Pavitra Punia was one of the strongest contenders inside the Bigg Boss 14 house; hence, her eviction last week shocked everyone. While her journey inside the BB 14 house was more or less entertaining, with the love angle with Eijaz Khan being the highlight, the one thing that perhaps irked viewers the most was her hurling abuses at Gauahar Khan during the initial week task. In an exclusive chat, we asked Pavitra about the same and the disappointment people felt post that episode. Explaining what led to that reaction, Pavitra accepted that it was a "loud" reaction but shared that she was hurt and didn't mean it.

Explaining herself and what led to the reaction, Pavitra told Pinkvilla, "I am not saying Gauahar was wrong but I will tell you what irked me. They had entered as seniors who were to guide us and challenge us in their two weeks stay inside the house. Right? They were doing their jobs well and we were learning from them and adapting accordingly. The seniors were not going to get any trophies or were not contesting in the season. Throughout we saw, Hina and Sidharth said that they will play fair because at the end of the day, this was our season and we had to take it forward. During that task, neither did Sidharth tell his team to form an alliance nor did Hina’s but Gauahar went to Hina’s team with the offer of forming an alliance. My perspective was that if you claim to love Bigg Boss so much, and when it was clear in the first two weeks that the strongest players for the season were in Sidharth’s team who could throw a lot of shades inside, so if you were thinking from the show’s perspective then why remove them from the game?"

She continued, "I am not blaming her but that is exactly what irked me. She was ready to throw us out as a team not because  Eijaz, Pavitra, and Nikki were in the team but only and only because of Sidharth Shukla as she had issues with him. I think she did not like him because she apparently tweeted about him a lot during his season. As contestants, we could see Gauahar had anger for Sidharth and I felt she removed all that frustration during the task which I felt was harsh and unfair."

Pavitra then reiterated, "Her idea of an alliance was not necessary. Sidharth was also angry. In that frustration and anger, I ended up abusing. I really had no personal grudge against Gauahar, but it was a reaction to her action. It was a loud reaction but I did not mean it that way. I was just hurt. That’s it."
