Monica Bedi’s rant against Imagine, BBC Networks’ production house and her fellow contestants and

Desi Girl

finalists Isshita Arun, Kashmera Shah and Roshni Chopra, hasn’t gone down well with everyone.

Bedi made an allegation against the three finalists by saying that Chopra, along with Arun and Shah, carried liquor and cash to the village to bribe the villagers to vote for them and take them through the finale. And Chopra is livid.

Being a Sport

“If there was a book about accepting defeat gracefully, I would gift it to Monica Bedi. I understand that she wanted to win like everyone else. But if she got ousted, it doesn’t leave the floor open for her to blame us. If she didn’t understand the concept of the show, she shouldn’t have come,” grouses Chopra.

Bring up Isshita Arun’s exit and re-entry into the finale, Chopra says that even though Arun and she are not on great terms, she feels the decision was fair. “Everyone played the game to the fullest. All of us performed our tasks. If the villagers chose Isshita and not Monica, it was their choice,” she says.

For now, Chopra is keeping her fingers crossed for the

Desi Girl

finale that goes on air ‘live’ this Sunday. The finalists went all over the contest venue, which was the village, Sialba Majli, campaigning for themselves and asking for votes. So is politics in the offing for the actress?

“No way!” she laughs. “We just campaigned for ourselves because it was a part of the game, but otherwise I don’t think I can do that. Honestly, it was fun asking for votes. I had my own

(election symbol) too,” Chopra adds.

And did being Punjabi, in a Punjabi setting, work to her advantage? “Maybe,” she smiles. “I can’t wait to find out who the villagers have voted as their

. How I wish it is me.”
