The Rediff Interview / Ravi Kissan
'What we see on Bigg Boss now is stupidity'
November 20, 2008
Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kissen will enter the Bigg Boss house in tonight's episode, and spend a day with the three finalists, Zulfi Syed [Images], Raja Chaudhary and Ashutosh Kaushik. He will also perform on the show's grand finale on Saturday, along with Diana Hayden [Images].
Ravi, who was one of the housemates in the first season, talks to Rajul Hegde just before entering the Bigg Boss house.
You are entering the Bigg Boss house tonight.
Yes. I am excited to enter the house again, and look forward to new experiences tonight. I will request Bigg Boss to play some good music. We will definitely have a blast.
What made you go back to the house?
I am getting major film and television offers only because of Bigg Boss. This show has made me popular and I am grateful. I was shooting in Kochi for my upcoming film Ravan. But after I received this offer, I requested my producers to give me two days off. I am entering the house to entertain the finalists.
Will you also perform on the grand finale?
Yes. I will perform with Diana Hayden. I will dance on two numbers -- Om Shanti Om [Images] and a Bhojpuri number.
Do you follow the second season of Bigg Boss?
I was watching it on and off because I have been travelling a lot for my shoots.
What did you think of it?
This season is very depressing. I don't want to comment on anyone. Bigg Boss is a psycho game and your mind stops functioning after three weeks. The housemates do what they feel is right at that particular situation because they are totally disconnected from the outside world.
Bigg Boss 2 is drawing flak for being vulgar. Some of the housemates aren't very exciting either.
The first season was an original. I can't say the same about the current season. We never played for money. What we're seeing now is stupidity. Those inside the house should understand that they are on national television and are being watched by family and children. But they're playing games smartly.
Is the show scripted?
No, it cannot be scripted. It is just about mind games.
Do you know the finalists Zulfi Syed, Raja Chaudhary and Ashutosh Kaushik personally?
I know Raja very well because he has produced Bhojpuri films. I have worked with his wife Shweta. I have not met the other two before.
Who do you think will win Bigg Boss?
Anything can happen. I cannot comment on this.
