What are your thoughts right now?
I am a free bird, and I am proud of having taken a stance. If somebody flaunts the lingerie of my friend, announcing what she wears (thongs, a push-up bra, the size, etc) I will certainly react. I had been in the house for seven weeks and never abused anybody. The maximum I did, was call Tanishaa kachre ka dabba and commented about her sister. Armaan (Kohli), ne kitni gandi baatein boli hai. I have fought with him when he has abused someone. I am a man of my words.
Are you happy you took part or do you regret?
I don’t regret it at all. People love me. Duniya dekh rahi hai. Everybody is tweeting and talking about Salman Khan favouring Tanishaa. It is trending. But I respect Salman. I have been his fan, and I can understand him. He is emotional like me. It’s his opinion that my image has taken a beating after the Tanishaa incident. However, just because he says it, my image will not get tarnished. If you go on the channel’s network site you will see people saying Kushal is right. Also, I gelled with everybody. I don’t have any grudges. I was being myself. I flirted around, did masti and had a nice time. When Priyanka(Chopra) came on the show, she called me a brat, and I am okay with it.
But you hit Andy. Will you apologise to him?
I feel bad that I slapped him but I will not apologise.
Will you go back to the house?
Not if the channel tells me. Only if the public calls me because they think I am right. It’s a viewer-based show. and if the audience wants me, I will go back to the house as a winner.
Did you know Gauahar from before?
No, I met her on the show and now she is more than a friend. I like her because she is upfront and stands up for what is right. She came out of the house not because of me but because what they did was wrong.
After all the drama, Gauahar is back in the house..
Yes, she has done the right thing.
The channel was expecting some fireworks between you, Gauahar and Candy, your ex- girlfriend..
I really don’t know why they brought her. I was dating her eight years ago and have nothing to do with her now.
