Popular YouTuber and VJ Abishek Raaja got evicted in the recently concluded weekend episode of Bigg Boss 5 Tamil and his eviction created a buzz on social media. Abishek was the second contestant to be evicted from the show after Nadia Chang. Abishek's game of play came into criticism and there were mixed reactions to the way that the young talent approached the game. A certain section of the audience felt that Abishek influenced others' games and it did not go quite well with them. Having said that, Abishek has now issued his first official statement after coming out of the Bigg Boss house and he mentioned that he played the game only as per the rules of engagement.

Abishek's official statement read, "Bigg Boss is a game and I played according to the rules of engagement. I was able to instigate a competitive spirit among the peers during tasks only because I developed an equation with each and every housemate. I put my longevity with the show at stake but I walked away with a satisfaction of staying real. If staying real is my ultimate testament, then that's how I run my show and my life too". This statement from Abishek tells us clearly that he is pretty much content with the way he's played the game.
