She may be German, but supermodel-turned-actress Claudia Ciesla can roll out a roti and cook up a dal in a jiffy, thanks to her stint in reality show Bigg Boss 3 where she was a housemate.
"I adjusted very well inside the Bigg Boss house. I didn't know how to cook at all, but during my stay I learnt how to cook dal and roti and a few other things. I can cook well now," Claudia, who was evicted from the Bigg Boss house on Friday, said in an interview.
Claudia also had a hard time as far as language was concerned - the actress was not allowed to speak in English inside the house after the first month.
"Learning Hindi was a task. But I somehow managed. That was one thing that was most difficult for me. I can now understand the language much better," she added.
Claudia, who entered the house with 12 more celebrities, including Poonam Dhillon, Kamaal R. Khan, Ismail Darbar, Sherlyn Chopra, Vindu Dara Singh and Raju Srivastav, was evicted through public voting.
All remaining members of the house were nominated for eviction this week.
When asked whether she expected her eviction, the 22-year-old said: "I thought that Aditi (Govitrikar) or Poonam (Dhillon) will be the one to leave the house this time. I was hoping that it's not me because I wanted to stay...but it's okay."
"I have no regrets. I'm happy that I'm out after so many days and I had a wonderful time even inside the house," she said.
Even though Claudia, who featured in M.R. Shahjahan's "Karma: Crime, Passion, Reincarnation", had cordial relations with every housemate, her friendship with wild card entry, model Pravesh Rana, raised eyebrows.
The actress however maintains they just shared a friendship and nothing beyond that.
"Pravesh and I are only friends and nothing else. We clicked because we are of the same age, same profession, so we had a lot to talk about. That was the only reason why we spent more time together," clarified Claudia.
But Claudia does feel that Pravesh will win. "I feel Pravesh or Vindu will ultimately win. Both are playing with a very good strategy and I feel both have a strong chance of winning the show," she said.
"No one is bad or playing dirty (in the house). A few people made mistakes, but that was all because of the circumstances. It is an emotional and a mental game, so people tend to react in ways they normally wouldn't."
Now the actress is planning to buy a house in Mumbai and create a place for herself in the Hindi film industry.
