Shilpa Agnihotri is out of Bigg Boss 7, but her heart and soul (read her husband Apurva) is in the house. Not surprisingly, she has bitter-sweet feelings. “I was really enjoying the game and didn’t want to be out,” she sighs. She feels that she was evicted because the others, who were nominated alongside her, were strong contenders. “I have been a regular viewer of Bigg Boss and know that unless you provide content by initiating a fight or controversy you cannot last.
I was the kind who would tell people that we will figure it out and find a way. I guess that equalled to less content!” Tell her that she had provided enough drama by yelling and throwing things when Apurva had got the Mohawk cut and she says she is not apologetic. “I may have come across as a crazy wife, but for us actors, the most important thing is our appearance. If he had cut even six inches of hair I would have been fine, but to go 80 per cent bald was not done. The task was completely unjustified,” she reasons.
According to her, tasks like Ratan Rajput being submerged in cow dung or Pratyusha Bannerjee being administered electric shocks are expected in shows like Khatron Ke Khiladi. “I have been a part of reality shows like Survivor and have done the baap of tasks and enjoyed them. However, Bigg Boss is about mind games and you are not prepared for this,” she says. Who does she think is playing the best game? “Armaan (Kohli).
He is always creating a controversy,” she quips. As for Apurva, she says, he is not playing a game at all. “He is a good guy. He was forced to participate because of me. But I hope they keep the good guys inside,” she says fervently. Given a chance, Shilpa would love to return to the house as she is already missing her life partner. In the meantime, she is looking forward to spending time with her dog — a cocker spaniel — named Hollywood.
