On Sunday (November 2), Minissha Lamba got evicted from a reality show Bigg Boss 8 hosted by Salman Khan. The actor says the experience has helped her overcome her 'biggest weakness', but admits to having felt bad in the past for not getting the recognition she feels she deserves despite being part of Bollywood for nearly a decade.

So, has your experience in the house changed you?
I have come out strong. I am the kind of person who does not resolve her emotional issues. Yet, I somehow managed it inside the house. I didn’t let small issues snowball into something big. I have overcome my biggest weakness.

Kamaal R Khan (KRK) called you a 'big bore' and said you have 'zero fan following'.
I have 10 opinions on KRK, but I won’t discuss them on a public forum. Pulling people down is his style, not mine.

You have done a number of films in your almost decade-long Bollywood career. But you are yet to get the recognition other actors have managed in the same time frame. Does that upset you?
I used to feel bad about not getting recognition. But I have accepted that now. If I haven’t got recognition for the things that I feel I deserve, I probably need to work harder.

You did a Punjabi film and then this reality show. Are you trying to reshape your career or are you just confused about what to take on next?
I had got a few offers, but those films didn’t happen. In the past two years, I haven’t got the kind of roles that I’d really like to do, but I have plans. When they work out, I’ll talk about them. That’s because what one plans and what actually happens are separate things.

You confessed to be dating someone. Are you ready to get married?
I think when people are in a relationship, they should be allowed to enjoy that phase without being questioned about the future. Also, nothing prepares you for marriage, but marriage itself.
