Nobody was willing to listen to me: Sampat Pal

Leader of the Gulabi Gang (a group of Indian women activists who always dress up in pink saris), Sampat Pal is glad that she got to be a part of  Bigg Boss. After getting evicted from the show, she expressed her gratitude towards the producers, the channel and the host, Salman Khan. “I got a lot of respect and love in the show. It was great to see a different kind of world.”

Pal admits that it took her a while to get the hang of the tasks in the show. “I wouldn’t understand what was expected of me, which led to many mistakes. But I learnt with time and worked hard in the house. Though following the protocol was tough at times, I’m glad that I met all sorts of people.”

Before going to the house, Pal had said that she would talk about issues that matter to her. So was she able to do that? “I couldn’t, as no one was willing to listen to me. They would all gang up on me and play in such a manner that I hardly got a chance to talk. All the contestants were perhaps aware of the requisites for Bigg Boss and kept talking about how to play the game. But I’m glad that I got a chance to be a part of Bigg Boss as the whole world saw and heard me. Now they know about our gang and how we fight for the rights of women,” says Pal.
