Devinder Singh, better known as Bunty The Superchor, was made to leave the Bigg Boss house on the first day, because he was found to be abusive and a threat to other contestants. Singh, whose story of more than 350 robberies inspired the Abhay Deol film, Oye Lucky Lucky Oye (2009), says he will be back to his business in Delhi — running a detective agency, which hires ex-cons as its employees! “I run a detective agency. It’s known to be the most popular one in the Capital. I have a decent clientele and manage to get a good number of cases,” he says.

Singh, who reportedly hires only ‘qualified’ thieves for his agency, adds, “I was a thief earlier, so I know how a thief or any criminal thinks while committing a crime. I know where a criminal mind goes wrong, and it becomes a little easy to nab him or her. I hire people based on how well one can decode a criminal mind, and I bet, no one better than another criminal to do that.”

The 37–year–old, who was offered three TV shows before entering Bigg Boss, adds, “I thought this show could make me popular and I’d fetch more work on TV. For now, I’m out of the house. But I still have the other TV show offers open. So, I have nothing to worry. Business toh hai hi,” he smiles.

When asked if he’s completed his jail term for the robberies he committed, Singh says, “It’s an old story now. I didn’t commit 350 robberies. That’s an exaggerated figure. I was thrown out of my house at a very young age. I thought maybe by doing what I was doing, I could become a wealthy guy. Today, I don’t have a family, but I have friends whose families treat me like their own child.”
