Being ousted from the Bigg Boss came as a shock to former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli, who says he was “not expecting” to be evicted from the show, especially considering he had entered only two weeks back. “It is really sad that all the honest people are getting voted out. I behaved inside the house just the way I am outside. I really don’t know what happened and why I was evicted,” he says.
Talking about the video in which Raju Srivastav, Rohit Verma and Vindu Dara Singh were shown plotting against the other contestants, Kambli says, “The punishment for them was very less. They should have been evicted. But it is the people outside who decide who goes and they have surprised me with their decision.” He further explains why he did not react much on seeing the video. “I maintained my cool because that’s the way I am. The others were just acting. I was honest because I don’t play games. The only game I have ever played is cricket,” he says, adding, “I never got into a bad situation inside because no one provoked me. If anyone would have dared to say something to me, I would have tackled them the way I tackled fast bowlers on the cricket field… the way I hit them for fours and sixes.”
Kambli says that his personal favourite to win the show is Claudia. “Her victory would be something like Shilpa Shetty’s victory in Celebrity Big Brother. It will be a historic moment. She is a nice girl, clean hearted and trying her best to learn Hindi. At the same time she is quite clever and is playing the game smartly. Vindu, according to me, is the most clever person in the house.”
