Kashif Qureshi, the ‘common man’ in the Bigg Boss house, was evicted from the show on Friday. And, the martial arts trainer from Hyderabad says he is glad he is out of the reality show. “It is a house that can be best described as a mix of mental asylum and a prison. Jaan bachi so lakho paaye,” he says. Qureshi won the ’common man’ entry to the show, getting to compete with 14 celebrities.
The 30-year-old later came under the scanner after it was reported that he managed to enter the show because of his proximity to the show’s host, actor Salman Khan. Qureshi, however, says, “If people think that I know Salman bhai, I take it as a compliment. It will only be advantageous for me. I have met him a few times in Hyderabad but only as a fan.” About the other contestants, he says, “Sidhu paaji (Navjot Singh Sidhu) is the most genuine. Sana, Urvashi, Rajeev and Karishma are ‘acting’.”
He says that he came on the show for fame.“I wanted people to recognise me because I feel an identity is key to expansion in life.” Qureshi now plans to work in Bollywood.” I want to give tough competition to all the Bollywood stars.”
