Mumbai: It’s just two weeks of Bigg Boss 13 and the audiences are already gripped and hooked with all the drama in the show. There have been two evictions from the house but the latest eviction of Koena Mitra has been a bit shocking.
Indiatimes got in touch with former actress and now BB contestant Koena to know about her point of view on her eviction, Salman Khan and Shehnaaz Gill and about the other contestants of the house.
Firstly, we asked Koena about her short stint inside the show, “I was never the first one to irritate or provoke people in the house. I don’t have such qualities in me, I always gave reactions, and when you are mocked behind your back on your appearance, acting skills, your attitude by somebody who has zero body of work, and creditability who is not known by people. When I walked in, I was told it’s a celebrity show where I recognised only three people and it will obviously disappoint you, I tried to handle it my way.
I don’t know about my first or second week, I just reacted to the situations that arrived and I don’t think I have never crossed the line. I have reacted but I have never really tried to provoke or attract someone just for the sake of it .”
We informed her about how there is an ongoing debate that Salman was unfair with her by taking Shehanaaz’s side and she said, “In the first Weekend Ka Vaar I felt he(Salman Khan) was cold with me and when Siddharth Dey started talking rubbish and then lied about it, thank god that video was aired. I tried to keep my point, where Salman didn’t give me chance to keep my point. Salman didn’t give me a chance to talk. First weekend, I was obviously offended by him, I felt it was one-sided, he should have given me the chance to talk.”
“And in the second weekend, when I started talking about Shehanaaz mocking me, Salman immediately defended her saying people are loving it and when I came outside the house I saw the reality that no one is loving it. Everyone is criticising, everybody is questioning her credibility, what work has she done. No one knew about her before she entered the house, when I left the house I realised audiences reaction is exactly opposite of what Salman had said which means he was personally defending her and this didn’t go down well with audiences.”
“In the entire conversation, Salman was not letting me talk and whenever I was talking and making sense, he was turning it upside down and he gave an idea to the Indian audience that this show doesn’t require dignified, educated, wise women. He said it, ‘Ye platform ye sabke liye nahi hai’, toh ye platform kyun hai Hindustan mai? Kis cheez ke liye hai, aap kya promote karna chahte hai? When I was sitting there in the Weekend Ka Vaar, I felt Salman was against me and he was playing the guardian for Sana. I was extremely disappointed by Salman’s attitude towards me”, she added
She even said, “I know the show had a concept, but my job was not to nurture the concept of connection, my job for me was to bring my real personality and nothing else.”
When asked if she regrets being a part of the show and she says, “I am extremely happy, you know why? I had gone out in a supermarket to buy something and I was overwhelmed with the public reaction when they saw me, I didn’t see the time I had left half an hour before the show was on air, I saw the love for me in their eyes, they loved me the way I am, and now everyone is fighting for me as they are not happy with my eviction, and the reaction by Salman towards me, so my question is who has evicted me? If janta is showing me so much of love and support outside the house, then who evicted me?”
When asked about Shehnaaz’s performance in the show, she said, “Everything about Shehnaaz is fake and annoying but according to Salman Khan this is what India wants to watch and I refuse to believe it.”
She said, “It’s too early to say that, because many more people will walk in and I don’t know who they are, right now most favourite is Paras, because he is honest, as he plays games and he says it on face. He is a true entertainer. He is very honest and transparent and has no mask. Sidharth is an intelligent man and he is the only fair person in the house. He needs anger management, minus his anger and temper problem I feel he is strong headed and fair player, he has no desperation.”
