A day after model-actor Gizele Thakral was voted out of Bigg Boss 9, she has claimed that her stint on the show will change people’s perception. “People always judge me for my looks, the kind of body I have and the kind of dresses I wear. At least after Bigg Boss, people have realised that she (Gizele) is straightforward and not a b***h,” Gizele told Hindustan Times in an interview.
Holding forth on the subject, she says, “I have big lips and long legs, people think I dress outrageously and I am too fashion-conscious so they believe the worst of me.”
Talking about her early eviction, she said, “I am a little disappointed that I am out, it’s not like I was lying low. Maybe I was evicted for I don’t have many fans. I am told they (other contestants) have even hired digital marketing experts for garnering votes. Otherwise how would someone like Suyyash, who is not giving any content at all, stay for so long?”
Gizele, who will make her Bollywood debut with Ekta Kapoor’s Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 this January, further said that she cherishes her friendship with Rishabh and Priya. While she called Mandana stubborn and egoistic, Gizele added that she was a caring person and a good contestant. “I would never want to forget Mandana. She has trust issues and cannot express herself but at least she is consistent. She may be rude but she is not fake.”
When you stay in a place like Bigg Boss house, you’ve got to hate at least one person and for Gizele, it is Nora Fatehi . “Maybe she (Nora) was told that you have to fight with someone to be noticed in the show. She chose me as I was not in any group so there wouldn’t be any backlash. Throughout my stay in the show, she kept fighting with me,” Gizele said.
Gizele entered Bigg Boss early this month and was voted out of the show on Sunday. Before Bigg Boss, Gizele featured in the Kingfisher calendar in 2011. She had also participated in reality shows like Survivors India and Welcome: Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki. Gizelle was the winner of Miss Best Body and Miss Potential titles in 2005’s Gladrags Model Hunt. She is rumoured to have dated cricketer Yuvraj Singh in the past.
