Khatron Ke Khiladi 11’s Nikki Tamboli misses her late brother; says, ‘I am sobbing myself to sleep almost every night’
Nikki Tamboli, who became a household name with the reality show, Bigg Boss 14, is currently in Cape Town, South Africa for her next show, Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. A day before the actress could take off for the shooting of this adventurous reality show, the news about her brother Jatin’s (29) demise broke. He succumbed to COVID-19 related complications, and Nikki hasn’t yet come to terms with her brother’s death.
Nikki Tamboli fought her emotions and left for Cape Town to participate in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 because it was her brother’s dream to see her do the show. The actress misses her brother terribly. She wrote a note explaining what all she is going through. Nikki Tamboli wrote, “I miss my brother so much and I am sobbing myself to sleep almost every night. Few people whom I know tell me that it was his time to go and I should be glad that he’s not in emotional pain anymore and not sick anymore and that I have to let him go but my mind doesn’t want to accept that.”
Nikki continued, “I just want to be able to talk to my brother and when I say this to my friends they say me that I still can, but it’s not the same…..The y are just not understanding or listening to how I am feeling. I knew my brother my whole life, we were very close and we always protected each other from the other family members and I had to look after him for most of his life even when I wasn’t around. I kind of felt like my brother’s sister and mum. My mum and father just keep saying that I am strong one in the family and she could have never gone through my and she expects me to be ok now and feeling strong now. I don’t feel strong at all now. I feel like everything is too hard and I just feel each day is difficult to live. I haven’t expected my brother’s death (sic.)”
Nikki Tamboli has turned off her comments for this post because she received a few hateful comments from the trolls for enjoying herself right after her brother’s death. Nikki’s brother was admitted to the hospital 20 days before he passed away.
