Television actor Ratan Rajput, who recently got evicted from the reality show Bigg Boss 7, says the show is a “shaadi ka laddoo”. “Yeh show shaadi ke laddoo ki tarah hai, jo khaye who pachtaye jo na khaye wo pachtaye. Toh kha kar dekna hi behtar hai,” she says.
Ratan adds, “It was a great experience as I got to judge myself and realise my strengths as a human being. I learned a lot about myself in the house. But there were times that I really felt homesick and even regretted being in that mad house.”
Elaborating on the reasons why she thought she got eliminated, the 22-year-old who shot to fame with the show Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo, says, “I think it happened because other contestants realised that I don’t get influenced. Moreover, I think I wasn’t ‘playing’ the game right.”
Giving her views on other contestants, Ratan says, “Andy is playing the game full on and openly. He is very entertaining and I think he deserves to be a finalist. On the other hand, Tanishaa is a chuppi rustam.” When asked about the ‘growing romance’ between the inmates, Gauhar Khan and Kushal Tandon, she says, “I do think they are more than friends, but I don’t understand why they are not openly accepting it. Also, both of them seem to have inspired Armaan and Tanishaa.”
However, this isn’t Ratan’s first reality-show stint. She was also seen in a reality-show Swayamvar, a show where she wanted to find a groom for herself amongst the participants. However, she had called off her engagement to Delhi-based software developer Abhinav Sharma after getting engaged to him on national television.
Although she is now single, she does believe in love. “I feel love happens. I believe that even after a break-up, life goes on. I am open to being in a relationship. But that doesn’t mean I am desperate to be with just anyone. I believe in the institution of marriage, though right now I’m single and happy,” smiles she.
