Priyank Sharma has rubbished the reports of his return on popular reality show Bigg Boss 11 and asserted that host Salman Khan hasn't assured anything about his comeback.
The Splistvilla fame was thrown out of the house after he physically assaulted housemate Akash Dadlani on the show.
Post his elimination there has been a buzz about his return. The media reports suggested that Salman, who was disappointed with Priyank's behavior, had assured Sharma about his return.
Clearing the air, Priyank stated, "Nothing is happening (regarding the return to the show). I am out of the show, I have no idea if I am coming back to the show or not. Lets hope for the best. Im keeping my fingers crossed.

"He (Salman) knows me. He scolded me, he took my side as well. He just told me dont forget what kind of a person you are, just be yourself and that I should not be hitting anyone as it is wrong. They (channel) dont want to promote that (hitting anyone) through the show. So I just got a piece of advice from him," Priyank tells PTI.
On the other hand, ex-contestant Zubair Khan too has alleged that Salman had said that Priyank will be back on the show, but this footage was not shown on television.
To this, Priyank says, "No nothing like that happened. I dont know why he (Zubair) is saying this, as nothing has been confirmed by the channel or Salman bhai about it. I would love to be back on the show but that doesnt mean I will be back on the show."
However, according to reports, he will soon return to the Bigg Boss house.
"If the channel approaches me again, I would love to go back. There will be no second thoughts about it," says Priyank.
The former "Splitsvilla" contestant says the atmosphere inside the house is not affable and it is tough to stay there.
"There was so much negativity in the house, there are mad and weird people inside. Its a mixed feeling (referring to his early exit from the show).
"I watch Bigg Boss, I feel I am still there but I am not. Its not a good feeling when I see the show. I have made some friends inside the show and I support them," he says.
Priyank adds he does not consider housemates Arshi Khan, Shilpa Shinde, Puneesh Sharma and Akash as his friends.
The show airs on Colors channel.
