Bigg Boss 10 evicted contestant Sahil Anand couldn’t survive in the house for more than two weeks. The actor who got evicted last night had an exclusive interaction with indianexpress.com, where he revealed how stressful it is to be on the show. He also shared his views on friend Bani and “beyond repair” Swami Om.
How disappointed are you with your exit?
“I am told that I wasn’t shown much in the episodes so, that way it is good that I am out. This is disappointing. The procedure (of the show) is very strange. I tried to solve the fight between Lopa and Bani and even tried to explain things to Swami Om but nothing was shown, they are only interested in showing the fights. So, I am glad I have been eliminated.”
Who is playing the dirtiest game on the show?
“It has to be Priyanka Jagga and Swami Om. They don’t have any issue in hand but just want to create controversy unnecessarily every day. They want to create fights on every little thing. Guru ji clearly says that he does everything to get footage and he keeps doing weird stuff. The situation inside the house is quite bad because of these two people.”
As a contestant, was the show too stressful to take?
“Stressful would be an understatement. I don’t know how many days I will be taking to recover from this (Bigg Boss) because things are too weird inside. When I came, everyone was already comfortable in their own groups. So, to fit in and make a space for yourself is extremely difficult. It is mentally draining.”
So, do you regret taking up Bigg Boss?
“I don’t regret. Everything happens for a reason. I also wanted to check if there will be any change in my nature and personality if I am thrown in such situations. I am glad I came out unchanged. If the audience liked a cute, lovable person, who tries to sort things out, then I would have been seen a lot on the show.”
Who are you rooting for now?
“I personally want Bani to win but she is emotionally stressed right now. So, I don’t know how much more she can survive on the show. She remains stressed throughout the day. She was telling me also, ‘Sahil, I can’t take this for long.’ Bigg Boss is a mental game and in accordance to that Gaurav (Chopra) is extremely strong. But if we look at the show’s concept, then this time the so-called commoner will win. I think Manu (Punjabi) will be back and it will be either him or Manveer (Gurjar).
You tried making things better between Lopa and Bani. Who do you think is at fault between them?
“There are problems from both the sides. I spoke to both of them and tried to bring them on the same page. For instance, during the press conference, Lopa was entirely wrong in interrupting Bani when she was answering her questions. I went to Lopa and told her that she shouldn’t have done that and she also realised it and asked me to convey her apology to Bani.”
Like you said you tried to ‘improve’ Swami Om. So, did anything come out of it?
“He is beyond repair. No one should even think of making him better. He doesn’t give a damn about any advice, whether it is coming from us or Salman Khan himself. During Weekend Ka Vaar, Salman gave him a piece of his mind but it had no affect on him. He doesn’t listen to anyone.”
Any more reality shows after Bigg Boss?
“Now, I will do something that is my love and it is acting. I will concentrate on acting only.”
