He probably was one of the most entertaining house mates on Bigg Boss season 8. So, when MissMalini asked me to do a 1 on 1 interview with Sushant Divgikar, I said “Hell Yeah!” It’s no secret that Divgikar is talented. He can dance, sing and go from adorable to “Oh-No-He-Didn’t!” in 0.5 seconds. So when we sat him down for a chat, we asked about everything. From his academic background, to the Mr. Gay World pageant and now Bigg Boss. And as cheeky as I am, I slipped in an important (to me) question. Here are 11 ‘Aha’ moments when Sushant Divgikar amazed us at the MissMalini office!
But first, check this out!
And now prepare to have your mind blasted :)
1. When he tackled the million dollar question, “Why do people say I (Marv) look like you?”
Frankly, I had saved this question for later. But the moment he sat in front of me, I had to ask! People have confused me for him before (4 times to be precise), and I had to ask him about his view on this absurd situation. He didn’t think so and neither do I. So that’s that!
2. When he mentioned that he’s a certified psychologist.
This is why this boy is amazing. And now to try to get him to spill some psycho-analytical details on the house mates!
3. His reason for entering the Mr. Gay World pageant was, “I wasn’t getting any younger!“
I was expecting a heavy answer and was praying that he wouldn’t spew cliches at me. He didn’t! #BlessHim.
4. When he prayed the ‘hot’ people in the house wouldn’t open their mouths and ruin their hotness.
Sound familiar? I’m sure a good lot of us have had this moment when we see someone attractive and go, “Please don’t be stupid!”
5. When he called Diandra his “makeshift mommy”.
We all know that Diandra Soares is an absolute sweetheart. And to the youngest boy in the house, Di played ‘mommy’ too! Awww :)
6. When he hinted that he wasn’t in the house for “an audition” like “some” people.
Let’s face it. We all know that a few contestants in the house, through all the seasons, are all kinda aiming to revive their careers!
7. When he said “Bigg Boss” needs help *lol*
Sushant mentioned his background in psychology, I had to probe him about his thoughts on the infamously faceless Bigg Boss. Not one to disappoint, his reply was candidly hilarious! See for yourself, here.
8. When he got Upen Patel his meds.
During the interview, Sushant told us that he is still friends with everyone. In fact, Diandra and Upen Patel are two house-mates, he regularly connects with. Upen was ill for our #MMFriday hangout and Sushant even went and got him his medicines. Awww!
9. When he fabulously apologized for the Gautam Gulati controversy.
Considering that Sushant was one of the “bigger” personalities in the house. I let him take the stage and clear the air on whatever he wished to clear. And he chose the Gautam Gulati controversy.
10. When he pointed out that Praneet ‘annoyed’ everyone!
Who was the most annoying person in the house? According to Divgikar, it was Praneet Bhatt. But I don’t really believe him. He definitely was playing this one safe. I’m on to you Sushant! #EyeSpy
11. When Sushant spoke to the “haters”.
While the LGBT rights movement in the country gets stronger by the minute, I had to ask Sushant to speak his mind to the “haters” in the community and in general. And he brilliantly did!
From my questions, we moved on to a quick rapid-fire round and I knew the boy would deliver yet again. Here are his answers!
Team MissMalini: If you had one meal to eat for the rest of your life… What would it be?
Sushant Divgikar: Dal and rice
Team MM: The best compliment you’ve ever received?
SD: That I’ve got the best b*tt which, I’ve lost in the Bigg Boss house. I didn’t get food.
Team MM: One question you hate answering?

Team MM: What was your first thought when you woke up this morning?

Team MM: Who would you want to be stuck in an elevator with?
SD: Siddharth Malhotra
Team MM: And who would you never want to be stuck in an elevator with?
SD: *giggle and sigh* Oooooh! No comments…. A lot of people. They’ll know when they propose to me. In case, they want to get stuck (in the elevator).
Team MM: And your reply would be?
SD: I’ll shout for help. Or I’ll kill them *death stare*
