Urvashi Vani was evicted from Bigg Boss 12 on Sunday night. The budding singer entered the show along with Deepak Thakur as a vichitra jodi. While Deepak continues to be strong in the game, Urvashi’s simplicity could not help her garner enough votes. After her elimination from the reality show, Urvashi sat down for an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com.
Talking about her exit from the show, the disappointed contestant said, “It was quite a roller coaster ride but definitely a great one. I did not really expect that I would go out so soon. Housemates kept calling me weak and that, I think, went against me. But I don’t understand, just because I was not loud, doesn’t mean I was weak. I always stood for the right, but it wasn’t enough, clearly.”
While many in the house talk about the differences between celebs and commoners, she was loved by everyone. Mentioning that she was always treated as an equal, Urvashi said, “I don’t think there is any difference. Once you enter a show like Bigg Boss, everyone becomes a celebrity. I think it’s all about mindset. And sadly, it’s only the commoners who feel the need to talk about this barrier. I was friends with everyone because we had mutual respect for each other.”
The nomination process this week had contestants saving each other. While Urvashi speaks about friendship, she did not get enough votes to get immunity. Also, during the eviction, maximum housemates voted against her. Urvashi confessed that she was really hurt by the same.
“According to me, I was doing quite well. But I couldn’t change people’s perception about me not being entertaining. I worked on all my shortcomings. I hate dancing but tried it every day. I started dressing up and putting makeup only for the show. But for the world that’s not good enough. Only shouting and fighting means entertainment for them,” she said.
Talking about her partner Deepak Thakur, Urvashi Vani shared that she no longer wants to be associated with him. Urvashi said, “As a jodi, we did not have the required coordination. While he knew about my silent nature, I was amazed to know about his reality. I cannot stand someone who doesn’t respect people and relationship. Also, no one has the right to put me down, even for the game. I could not tolerate his nasty behaviour. When we couldn’t bond inside the house, I don’t think I will be friends with him outside now. I think Deepak is really stupid, for he gets manipulated easily.”
Also, Deepak’s closeness to Somi Khan is said to have caused the dent in their friendship. Ask her if there was a love triangle happening between them and she laughed to say, “Not at all. There was nothing from my side. Somi genuinely felt uncomfortable by Deepak’s action. And as a middle-class girl, I understand that such things can become an issue post the show. This is why I tried explaining the consequences of firing up a love angle in Bigg Boss to Somi.”
As the conversation steered towards host Salman Khan, the young girl from Bihar said, “He was really sweet to me. He scolds us when we go wrong and always pushes us to do better. I really loved interacting with him.”
Describing her journey with the song “Kabhi alvida na kehna”, Urvashi stated that she plans to move to Mumbai soon to start her career as a singer. “I also want to become a fashion designer. That’s my passion,” she concluded with a smile.
