Deepshikha came to Lucknow to unwind during the Diwali weekend. Here's what the actress has to say about the reality show and her unexpected ouster from it
Little did Deepshikha know that her stay in the Bigg Boss house would be so short-lived. "My Bigg Boss stint was too short and I am still in a state of shock," says the actress, who was in Lucknow to celebrate Diwali with her Rakhi brother. Her husband Kaishav Arora also accompanied her. She adds, "To overcome this shock, I came to Lucknow to relax at my brother's house. My eviction was too sudden. Even Salman Khan was shocked ki Deepshikha bahar kaise aa gayi! I was crying and howling like anything when I came out of the house."
Vote's the matter
Voicing her doubt over the voting pattern followed on the show, Deepshikha says, "Voting ki transparency nahi hai Bigg Boss mein. I even asked for the audit report of voting, but the production house didn't give it to me. I was very angry and upset and wanted to see the audit report, and I'm waiting for it even now. It might be the the production house's strategy to evict me midway, to garner TRPs, but bali ka bakra toh main bann gayi na. I even asked them ki mujhe liya kyun agar itni jaldi nikalna tha."
Deepshikha was approached for the show several times in the past. "In fact, every year I used to get calls for Bigg Boss, but then, in the end materialize nahi hota tha. This time when they called me it all worked out. My kids and my husband, all are very fond of Bigg Boss. My kids were so excited that they couldn't wait to tell their friends about it. Ghar ki taraf se I was very relaxed," she says.
Fight it out
Telling us about the umpteen fights inside the house, Deepshikha says that there are lighter moments too between the contestants. "Jo Bigg Boss TV pe dikhate hain, reality mein waisa hota nahi hai. Nobody fights all the time. Our task is ki bhai Bigg Boss mein aaye hain, toh content toh dena hai for that one hour. We used to play antakshari and dumb charades. In fact, I used to do a lot of gymming as my aim was to lose a certain amount of weight. It was only during the tasks that we used to fight, not otherwise," she says.
Deepshikha, who was friends with actor Puneet Issar inside the house, has changed her opinion about him soon after coming out. "Puneet Issar is not only a very bad man, he is actually a very dirty man! He is not at all a father figure. I didn't know much about him till I came out. He has started playing dirty. Puneet thought that I am a very strong contender, manipulated people against me and got me nominated," she rues.
