Elli Avram, a virtual unknown, amidst ‘celebrities’ in the Bigg Boss house, is recieving a huge number of votes. The foreign import, and heroine of Mickey Virus is getting love from Salman Khan fans. That she is a favourite is something he has not bothered to conceal on the national television.
On her part, Elli is going all out to impress the host Salman. From crooning romantic numbers Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam to dancing to Fevicol Se (both songs are from his films) this contestant is leaving no stone unturned to charm the superstar.
Right from the opening episode, Salman has been open about his fondness for her. He also generously promoted her filmMickey Virus and praised her performance. Last weekend, he told Sunny Deol, who had come on the sets to promote his film, that Elli was a replica of Katrina in her initial Bollywood days. Now, whether Salman casts Elli for his next movie, considering his penchant for launching new girls, remains to be seen, but in the meantime Elli is in a win-win situation. His liking for her has spawned a huge voting bank for the pretty girl.
The Greek-Swedish actress has managed to outstay popular TV stars like Ratan Rajput and Balika Vadhu actress Pratyusha Banerjee. Last week, when Salman asked the eliminated Pratyusha to name the shrewdest person in the house, pat came the reply, “Elli” and then she coyly added, “Sorry.” When Salman asked her why she was apologising, she smiled knowingly!
A source says that Elli has been getting maximum votes to continue in the house. “Salman’s fans have been voting for her as they think bhai likes her.” Says another source,“She has been getting votes from day one, irrespective of the Salman connection.” The channel, however, refused to comment.
