'Jade didn't say anything racist'

Recent reports claimed Bigg Boss host Arshad Warsi was set to meet Shilpa Shetty in London to boost her confidence following the Big Brother scandal. When contacted, Warsi denied this. "I am not going to meet Shilpa. That was wrongly printed. I was going to have a talk with the host of Big Brother via satellite. However, that too seems impossible now, because of date problems. But meeting Shilpa is not possible at all as the show's rules do not permit any outsider to meet participants."
Arshad feels the whole situation was blown out of proportion. He feels that in such game shows, one tends to become edgy and say things they normally may not say. "Everyone is trying to win the game. So such things do happen," he said.
On his views about Indians being treated badly in the West, he said, "Honestly speaking, I don't feel we are treated badly. There are times when we Indians also behave badly."
On his views about the reality show, the actor said, "I personally feel Big Brother or Bigg Boss is a tough game. It is a mind game, which you have to play being calm. You have to be strong-headed, as there are so many people under one roof with opposite natures. So there is always a possibility of clash of opinions. It's survival of the fittest."
Personally, Arshad would never want to be on such a show.
Talking about his forthcoming projects, Arshad said, "I will be going to London at the end of this month. Right now, I am doing patchwork for Mr Black Mr White. I am also completing my shoot for Big Boss and practising football for Goal."
