Excerpts from the conversation…
How satisfied are you with your journey to Bigg Boss 14?
I never expected to be in the top three. I had lost any hope of being in the finals even after coming back. However, it is such a huge achievement for me, and it is nothing short of winning the trophy. My parents were also very happy about my visit. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more.
In the early days, Tofani Seniors chose you as a winner. What do you think went wrong for you?
I do not know exactly However everything I did was at my own whim and I was not influenced by anyone or manipulated in any way. Also, not everyone can win. I managed to rule the hearts of my fans, and this is an achievement for me.
Salman Khan was very impressed with your behavior in Finale, and also scolded you.
When Ellie was eliminated, I became really passionate about my journey. I was dragged through the entire show, told that I had no ability. I have played the game alone. I was upset that one should not judge so easily, they might have the ability to fly. I was probably over, but I was just remembering what everyone told me, and feeling really sad.
Recently when you developed a close relationship with Rubina, you could not remain friends with Jan Kumar Sanu, Rahul Vaidya and Ejaz Khan. Do you think you need to learn to maintain relationships.
I don’t think so, because everyone I was rude or fought with, I have settled the differences. I think it will be a smooth journey for me.
You got two chances to take money and leave the show. Do you stick to sports?
When I was offered Rs 6 lakh, I knew that I definitely wanted to stay. It was my dream to reach the finals. And when I pressed the buzzer to get Rs 14 lakh, Rakhi was faster than me. But I am very happy that I was left behind, otherwise I would never have known that I could reach the top. 3. I don’t know how much I am being loved.
What has been the most precious moment for you in Bigg Boss 14?
When I became the first confirmed contestant, and when I first arrived at the finale. Both these moments were very special for me.
If you can complete your Bigg Boss journey in one word, how will you do?
It was a magical journey for me. I have been a big fan of Bigg Boss Hindi for the longest time. I am very happy that I decided to be a part of the show. It made me realize my potential not only personally but also professionally.
How do you plan to use your popularity now?
I want to do a lot of films, and even serials. I am already working in the South, and now want to enter the national industry. I think a lot of doors will open for me now.
The show Bigg Boss 14 aired on Colors.
