You came from Varanasi for the show, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega, on NDTV Imagine?
Yes. I had a crush on Rahul since I was 14. I run an NGO in Varanasi and I’m also a BJP member. I thought this would help us connect with each other really well.
How are you dealing with the early elimination then?
I was taken aback by Rahul’s decision. I obviously didn’t expect it from him. It didn’t hurt me so much that I was leaving the show. It hurt me more to part ways with him.
What do you think led to your elimination from the show?
First, I didn’t get enough time to spend with Rahul. Second, I was honest and not diplomatic like the others girls. I said what I felt and that made the other contestants insecure. Rahul was feeling more comfortable with Dimpy Ganguly and not me.
Are any girls on the show not serious about marrying Rahul?
Swati Augustin, the BPO employee from Delhi, is fake. She is just trying to gain publicity and tries to portray herself as a Bihari to gain sympathy from Rahul. I can’t say anything about others, but I know that I was 110 per cent serious about marriage.
Has your elimination from the show made you bitter?
Not at all. I am an optimistic person and I respect Rahul. I want to see him happy. I know he is serious about settling down through this show. I wish him luck. I will be there for him whenever he a friend around.
A message for Rahul?
He should keep his eyes and ears open while making the biggest decision of his life.
