A day after she was evicted from Bigg Boss, Diandra Soares talks to HT about her sensational stay inside the house, Gautam Gulati and what she intends to do now that she's back in the real world.
Now that you are out of the house after more than 80 days, what is that one thing/person you will miss the most?
I guess I will miss the house the most. I started having tea in the house. In fact, I dreamt about the house this morning. I am actually missing the whole experience. I am not used to the fact that I am out of the house. It feels abnormal.
What was the first thing you wanted to do after you came out of Bigg Boss?
Have a drink.
While your concern for Gautam was clearly visible, he kept wavering. Even as a parting note, you wished him well. Any comments?
I tried to explain to him that he should not behave as weird (Gautam maintained a distance from her ever since the celeb guests visited Bigg Boss house and told him his parents were not happy with his equation). I tried telling him how there would be many more questions asked if he behaves strangely and takes a sudden U-turn. It's unfortunate that Gautam took a complete U-turn. I wish he had the maturity to handle this correctly. He needs to reach out to me. If he ever felt anything for me, he should be a man enough to reach out to me.
You were one of the only two strong, level-headed women in the house. Do you regret being voted out so early?
I am sad to be out as I am being told that I was a strong contender. I wish I were there and I do think how could I be voted out but can't really comment on how I was voted out.
You've had your share of friends and foes in Bigg Boss.
I guess I have had an emotional connect with almost everyone in the house, so I do not think there will be any person I wouldn't want too meet. It felt nice to get messages and calls from all the evicted contestants till date from this season. I don't think anyone else has kept it that way - maintaining individual connection and the game at different levels.
Who is the most trustworthy and which one is not?
Sonali Raut is just too disinterested, in tasks, people and that is strange to me. Some people are getting nasty, and some people are losing it. But to me all that is fake. The whole point of a game like Bigg Boss is you be true to who you are because audiences don't want to see something that's put on.
Who do you think will win and who do you want to win Bigg Boss 8?
I need to watch as an outsider and maybe then I will have a favourite in the house.
You said you will be working on a film soon. Would you like to elaborate?
Yes, I have signed two films with the Bhatt camp and will start working on them next year.
