Being eliminated in the last week of a reality show is a bummer, but Delnaaz Irani isn’t disheartened. While walking away from Bigg Boss, she says Uravashi Dholakia is most likely to win.
Imam Siddique was 'kidnapped' by Bigg Boss on Wednesday and sent to a secret room in the house, moments after he had a fight with Rajev Paul.
How will life be after Bigg Boss?
I will take a break as three-and-a-half months is
a long time (the time she spent in the house). Then it’s back to regular work. Some people in the house said, ‘We will hike our price after the show’, but I have always been a hardworking actress and never behaved like a star.
Who do you think will win?
I really don’t know. I always thought it would come down to Uravashi (Dholakia) and me, but now that I am out, she stands a strong chance.
Delnaz had broken down when Bigg Boss asked her if she was still in love with Rajev, during a task.
On the show, you mentioned that you have moved on. Was that a hint about a new romantic relationship?
No. But I am willing to date, am ready for another relationship and when the right person comes, I will take it forward. I have given a lot to this relationship (with ex-husband Rajev Paul) for 14 years. I have always been a people’s person and deserve love.
Sapna (Bhavnani) said that you portrayed a bechari (someone in distress) act in the house.
It’s her opinion but I know I have never projected myself as a bechari and I am not one at all. I have moved on after the divorce. I stand tall today. She doesn’t know me well, so I don’t have to explain myself. As a person, I don’t scream or shout, act dominating or talk about my divorce.
Yet all the unpleasant details are out in the open now.
I wish that hadn’t happened. I wanted to handle things with dignity. The technicalities of divorce and financial stuff need not have been revealed. Television is a small fraternity, and I’ve worked hard to make a place for myself.
When you meet Rajev now, will you guys be friendly?
Before the show, we were not even on talking terms. Now, at least, we are cordial.
