Kashif Qureshi, the only common man in the ongoing season of Bigg Boss thought the show would be a carefree and exciting experience, but he says it turned out to be “dangerous” house full of celebrities, who are “mad”, “desperate” and “wonderful actors”.
“My experience on the show was terrible! It is a very dangerous show. I thought it would be a fun show where there will be a nice swimming pool, nice girls and friendly people. But there were so many mosquitoes in the pool, the weather inside is so cold, and the water is so cold… so, it was terrible,” Kashif told IANS over phone from Lonavala.
The martial arts expert was voted out of the show on Friday, after he had a series of arguments with different housemates within the first week of his stay itself. He fought with celebrity hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani, model Niketan Madhok and actress Urvashi Dholakia among others. He alleges that he was victimised and provoked to fight just because he was a common man.
“There are three kinds of people in the show – paagal (mad), desperate and wonderful actors. They had a problem with me and targeted me because I am an aam aadmi (common man). They felt they could dominate me, but because I have no experience in acting, I responded the way anyone else would do,” said the 30-year-old, the second evictee of the show. His anger on the show had reached a stage, where he was given a warning by Bigg Boss as well as the show’s host, Bollywood star Salman Khan. That’s when Kashif cooled down.
“People on the show pressurised me to keep my cool. Main thanda padh gaya (I cooled down), that’s why the audience voted me out,” added Kashif, who says he is glad he is out of the show as he couldn’t have handled the house’s politics anymore. Asked whom among the contestants is playing the game, he said: “Bigg Boss is not a game. It is original, it is reality. It is not a game show at all. But yes, people are manipulative and there are good players – Sana Khan (model) is very clever, Rajev Paul is playing it well and Urvashi Dholakia too.”
The most non-manipulative players include actress Delnaaz Irani and cartoonist Aseem Trivedit, says Kashif, who hopes his two-week stay on the show has opened doors to Bollywood for him. “I want to do an action film. I really want one,” he added.
