Yes, the Bigg Boss 9 house is all about drama and fights and the works. But every now and then, an unsuspecting housemate reveals a side of themselves that really humanizes them and hence, connects with the audience. I think Aman Verma had that moment in last night’s episode. Mandana Karimi asked him what his life’s greatest regret was and he said:
When things were really looking up for me, I wish there was someone to guide me. Whatever I’ve done, I’ve had to do by myself. I’ve never really had a guide. Suddenly, my life started going really fast and I feel it went to my head a little. I became pompous. In fact, the first serious relationship I had when I came to Mumbai – I wish I had married her. If I had, my life would be quite different now. It’s still good, but it could’ve been better.
That’s actually quite sad to hear. Especially because if you’ve followed the television scene for long enough, you know Aman had it pretty good back in the day. He was being touted as the next best thing. Aman was hosting the shows everyone wanted to anchor and playing characters everyone wanted to play. It was really a moment of misjudgment I feel that caused his downfall. Here’s hoping Bigg Boss helps him resurrect his career.
