Staying in the House till the last day would have been a punishment,” smiles Manoj Tiwari, Bhojpuri superstar who exited the Bigg Boss House on Friday night. “It’s been three days since, and I feel it was the best time to exit because the game just gets murkier. Everyone is busy playing sly games with one another. All the contestants who entered the House had come in with an intention to win. But no one was playing as many devious tricks as they are playing right now,” he says.Tiwari recalls how the initial weeks inside the House were the best, besides the week Khali entered and Pamela Anderson visited.
“Everyone was doing their work, eating and sleeping in harmony. Dolly Bindra’s entry mutilated peace. We were so restless when she was in the House because she was ready to fight at the drop of a hat. Apart from that, the last week that I spent in the House was terrible because Ashmit (Patel) played dirty games with me. In a weak moment, I confided my feelings about Shweta (Tiwari) and Sam (Sameer Soni) to him. On the basis of that, he created such misunderstandings that I lost my friendship with them,” he rues.
Tiwari is elated about being ready to now get back to Bhojpuri movies. He says, “I have a couple of projects that are incomplete because I kept them aside for this show. After I complete Dayavan and Ganga Jamuna Saraswati, I will move on to Agneeputra. I’m excited about getting back to my normal life, my family, friends and work. Spending 60 days with strangers is a big deal.”
The actor, one of the highest paid in Bhojpuri cinema, wishes to continue his friendship with Rahul Bhatt, Khali, Seema Parihar, Hrishant Goswami and Aanchal Kumar. “They were genuinely good. They didn’t fall for hearsay. They believed in transparency. Given a chance, I will connect with them again,” he says.
