"They served me stale food and isolated me in the House thinking it would kill my spirit," says Dolly Bindra, who was expelled from the Bigg Boss House on Wednesday evening. Her exit followed a fist-fight, heated arguments and an exchange of choice cuss words with all the House inmates, with the exception of Khali.
"I don’t know what was being shown on TV when I was in the House but I didn’t trigger off the fights. The nautankibaaz (drama queen) inmates did all that themselves, set off by Shweta Tiwari. They all back-bite and gang up against their target, which in this case was me. I just had Khali on my side."
The actor, who also runs an event management company with her husband, insists that Tiwari felt insecure because she was afraid that her murky past would come up on national television. "Shweta didn’t know which way to look because she has been running away from me for the longest time," says Bindra.
"On the show, she addressed Raja Chaudhary as her husband, but the truth is that she has been bad-mouthing both him and me everywhere. When she saw me in the House, she probably wanted to die."
Last Sunday, a tabloid had termed Bindra as the new cuss queen of the small screen. When questioned on this, she says that the paper never spoke to her. “By writing what they did, they’ve tried to tarnish my image. But, those who know me, know that I’m a straightforward lady, who doesn’t unnecessarily mess around. What they did was unfair.”
It’s also rumoured that Bindra had been ‘planted’ in the House by the channel and production house anchoring the show, to create TRP-worthy content everyday. “Really?” she asks. “But I wasn’t told to behave in any particular manner and pick up fights. I’ve always been like this. If I’m abused, I don’t spare the abuser.”
She says that all the inmates apologised to her before she left the House. Would she like to go back? She laughs, “If I go back, those drama kings and queens will want to bury themselves alive. Or at least they’ll threaten to do so. It’s another story that they almost starved me to death even though I cooked for them.”
