He was perhaps one of the most controversial figures on the reality TV show
, but after his ouster on Friday night, terrorist Ajmal Kasab’s ex-lawyer Abbas Kazmi says he was eliminated because the other contestants saw him as a “threat”.
“I was amicable with everyone and had a wonderful time, but when people saw that someone else is a potential winner, they decided to get rid of the strongest thorn,” he says.
Kazmi is fuming at the buzz that he went on the reality show to clear his image. “I did not go for any such reason. I don’t need to do any such thing. I always got a pat on the back even when I was defending Kasab. Why do I need anyone’s help to clear my image? I went on the show because I love challenges,” he says.
Talking about his co-contestants, he says actor Rahul Bhatt (filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s son) is a “nice boy”. “He became like a younger brother to me,” he says.
One of his big problems on the show was that he wanted to cook for everyone. “But like I said, there was a sort of groupism against me and they didn’t let me,” he says.
