Exclusive: ‘Shamita Shetty, Karan Kundrra, Tejasswi Prakash, Everybody Was Scared Of Me,’ Says Bigg Boss 15’s Evicted Contestant Vishal Kotian

Bigg Boss 15 has gotten very interesting with four contestants getting eliminated and four new ones joining in. Amongst the four eliminated housemates, I recently caught up with Vishal Kotian for a tete-a-tete and he had a lot of things to say. We spoke about his journey, his mind games, and also about him being accused of playing the inferiority complex card.

Here's what Vishal had to say about his time on Bigg Boss 15...

On how it feels to be back in the real world...

I can feel the sun light, breathe the normal air, I can eat what I want, visit anybody, I am no more caged. The Bigg Boss house is a well-furnished jail, so I feel free and nice. Bigg Boss ka house is a sone ka pinjra.

On being misunderstood and playing mind games...

Kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna. Baat unhi ki hote hai jinme koi baat hoti, I always believe in this. In the first week, I had said that you nominate me for all 15 weeks and it will not make a difference to me. Yes, my game changed a little bit because everybody started exposing it. Whenever, I played a mind game it was exposed, either by someone who came in the house or by Bigg Boss. Nobody in that house had a mind, which is why they were scared of me. They could like me, hate me, but they could never ignore me. Everybody said they could not trust Vishal, but I was always their first choice because I had the brains and everyone was scared of it.

On his sudden eviction...

I never expected to get out of the house so soon, I played my heart out. Everybody spoke about me, I was the biggest threat to everyone. They were insecure, even a Karan Kundrra was scared of me when I spoke to Tejasswi Prakash, that says it all. I didn’t like the fact that in the last task I went all out in entertaining, everybody else were breaking rules be it Umar Riaz or Rajiv Adatia. I was doing clean entertainment, but when I saw the show 80 percent of it was not shown, I think that was unfair. Also, a journey of 8 weeks, seen by crores of Indian cannot be decided by a live audience of 2 hours, so you cannot say janta ne aapko ghar se nikala hai, because 4 lakh people cannot be the entire population.

On his relationships in the game...

Everybody was trying to play safe with me, Nishant Bhat told everyone he doesn’t like my game, but he gave up on Karan and Teja, his closest friends, and took me to the VIP zone because he was scared. Everybody wanted me on their side, Karan was the most scared of me, which is why he wanted to be in my good books, Shamita Shetty was scared of me, no matter what the world told her she still wanted me by her side. Tejasswi was a genuine friend, but she was still scared, even Umar told me in the end that we shall play together from now.

On, going back in the game...

I am getting feelers that I might go back in the house, they brought Devoleena Bhattacharjee in the house because I was there. She kept speaking about me everywhere. If I go back in the house, I really want to tell her ki ab sher ayaa hai samne, ab bol jo bahar bola tha. Also, I would want to put everybody in their place once I am in the house.

On the inferiority complex accusations...

I come from the lanes of Mumbai and I never used it as a sympathy card. I was purposely saying all that because I wanted kids like me to dream, they are always suppressed in life, I was told things when I was a kid. So being on India’s biggest platform, I was purposely saying all that. Because if I can come till here, anybody can. I also used to say that now I am well to do, I drive a Mercedes, I bought a house. I never said I have nothing, I said I have seen poverty and so I value things, but it was misinterpreted. If I had to gain sympathy, why would I wear good clothes or say I am an MBA. The motive was to tell the street kids that educate yourselves and you can reach the skies.

Well, it would be interesting to see Vishal re-enter the house, so I am eagerly waiting. Till that happens, stay tuned!
