Freshly evicted from the Bigg Boss 10 house, actor Rahul Dev has a lot to say about housemates Swami Om and Priyanka Jagga and, of course, they are not the nicest of things. Talking to indianexpress.com, the actor said he is flabbergasted to see that a person like Swami Om, who has disgusted audience and even other housemates with his antics, has survived so long in the house. Rahul has questioned the audience for saving Swami Om every time as he should have been eliminated. “A man who has no respect for women, who make passes at them and looks at them inappropriately, is inside the Bigg Boss 10 house. So, I don’t know where are we heading. The same viewers, who talk about women rights and progressiveness, are keeping him inside. I am disappointed with the audience,”
Rahul said it is any day better to be out of the show than share space with contestants like Swami Om and Priyanka Jagga, who are known for their unsavoury remarks on others. “I am relieved that I am out of the show because the game has gone dirty. I don’t understand how people like Swami Om and Priyanka Jagga are still there. I just hope they don’t end up in top five. That would be really sad. What they do on the show is not entertainment, that is pathetic,” he said.
Rahul, who wants Lopamudra Raut, Rohan Mehra or Gaurav Chopra to win the show, said if it has to be a commoner, he would prefer Manu Punjabi or Manveer Gurjar over any other Indiawale. “They both entertain and play the game well. There are some things about them which I don’t like but overall they are far better than other Indiawale and I wouldn’t mind seeing them in top five.”
Further talking about Manu, Rahul said that his much-talked about love angle with actor Mona Lisa is fake. “I have no fear in saying this that it is obviously a fake thing. It is for the show and it worked well for them.” As far as his personal journey on the show is concerned, Rahul feels he has developed a lot of patience now which will help him in his life, but the actor admitted that had he known a lot about the show’s format, he wouldn’t have signed it.
“I didn’t go for it knowing about how things work there. I hadn’t seen any season. I signed the show just two days before entering the Bigg Boss house. Had I known left, right and centre about the show, I might have not have said yes. In future too, I am all for reality shows which are task-based but not something which has people peeing in their pants or screaming at the top of their lungs.”
