Diana Hayden on her eviction from

Bigg Boss 2.

She pours out her heart to

Sujata Reddy


A few excerpts


What were your first thoughts on being evicted from the House?

I had no thoughts. I was ready to go. Shilpa (Shetty) didn’t stretch the post-eviction interview.. even she sensed that I just wanted to get out.

How was your stint at Bigg Boss 2?
I had the most amazing two months. It was a holiday for me. I haven’t taken such a long holiday ever. Sadly, the atmosphere in the House during the last two weeks turned nasty. I can handle anything except petty politics. There was too much nastiness. It’s a bit like the Lord of the Rings.. the inmates’ personalities change when they near the ring. Here the ring was the prize money. <b1>

Such behaviour is expected at a reality show.. why did you agree to get on board and that too at a later stage?
Because I knew that no matter how people around me are, I’d remain the same. I agreed for many reasons.. to win, to have a holiday. I know the fact that I entered late on the show didn’t work for me. I just entered to play a healthy game. Sadly, it became vicious and dirty.

Your chemistry with Ashutosh Kaushik was spoken about a lot. Did you know him before the show?
Oh God, no! We became friends because I saw that he’s simple and honest.. just like me.
The award for honesty conferred upon him only confirmed what I thought of him. Most inmates were trying to pair us but that’s because they were entertaining themselves.

He cried when you were evicted.
(Laughs) Ashu is very naughty, he just plays along. All those tears were pure navtanki. Contrary to what some say, I don’t think he did that for publicity. And if he did, it’s okay. That’s nothing compared to what the other inmates do to grab the viewers’ attention. And there were times when I knew Ashu was doing certain things for the camera.. like when he fed me a mosambi.

How would you describe the current house members?
Payal is elegant, Sambhavna’s a wild cat and Raja is very temperamental. Rahul is manipulative, Monica plays games. Ashu is honest.

Has your Hindi improved?
(Laughs) Hindi mein baat karna chahte hain aap?

Okay, now that your popularity has risen, are you hoping to get more film offers?
Ab Bas was the only film I did. I shuffle between Los Angeles and India every few months. Films have nothing to do with Bigg Boss. I’ll do one if the script interests me. Anyway I’m not desparate to do a film!

Are you in touch with your ex-boyfriend Rajiv Singh?
Absolutely. I want to keep the few good friends I have and Rajiv is one of them.
