Bigg Boss 9: I want Keith to win the show, says Roopal Tyagi

TV actor Roopal Tyagi, who was evicted from Bigg Boss 9 on Sunday, may not have made friends inside the house, but she sure has a name she can list as an enemy: Mandana Karimi.

TV actor Roopal Tyagi, who was evicted from Bigg Boss 9 on Sunday, could not last in the show for long. However, Roopal wants Keith Sequiera to win the game.

Speaking to Hindustan Times after her eviction from the controversial reality show, Roopal said, “I want Keith to win the show. I think he’s very smart, sensible and gentle. I hope he wins.”

“Mandana is too selfish and I don’t like selfish people at all. I guess she has fought with every single person in the house. I will never ever meet her again,” she said, talking about her problems inside the house.

“Prince is showing his true colours. He believes women aren’t worth anything, though he claimed before entering the house that he respects women. And I think Kishwar is the biggest game planner on the show this season,” the Sapne Suhaane Ladakpan Ke actor added.

On being voted out of the show, Roopal said, “This is the happiest I have been in the last fifteen days. I have been craving to get out, within a week I realised that this is not the kind of game show I am made for and I wanted to get out ASAP!”

Elaborating on her decision to go for a show like Bigg Boss, Roopal said, “I wanted to try the experience but there’s a difference between thinking about something and doing it. I realised I won’t be able to give them the drama and footage they need so I’d rather get out.”

Discussing the difficulties she faced during her journey in the house, the TV actor said, “There is too much of negativity in the house. Even simple tasks turn into arguments. I cried after the first fight even though I was not involved; in the second one, I ended up reacting and by the time the third fight happened, I had learned to cut out the negativity. But it is very tough to keep ignoring all the negative energy all the time.

When you are living in the same house, you are bound to develop some bonds you’d cherish for later. Roopal said she did not get the time to know people enough but added that she’d like to meet up and know more about Keith, Rimi, Vikas and Digangana.

Opening up about her ex-flame Ankit Gera(who was the first contestant to be eliminated from Bigg Boss 9), Roopal said, “The first two days were awkward but from the third day, Ankit became cordial and when he was evicted, I felt guilty. I had nominated him for his behaviour in the first two days and somewhere that was the reason he was evicted, I felt bad for him and that’s why I was crying.”
