The Rediff Interview / Ehsaan Qureshi
Ehsaan, on who's doing what in Bigg Boss
October 20, 2008
Ehsaan Qureshi seemed to be having the last laugh when he was eliminated from Bigg Boss last week. The stand-up comedian claims that he was glad to get out of 'jail' especially after some of the housemates stopped respecting him after he was nominated for eviction.
He talks to Rajul Hegde about the house politics, and more.
You're out of Bigg Boss. How do you feel?
Why do you say that?
I did not keep a fast on the first day of Ramzan because I am a diabetic. But I fasted from the second day onwards, as I had nothing to do in the house. This was not shown by the channel. This created a controversy in Madhya Pradesh [Images] and even my friends started asking me why I did not fast.
What kind of response did you get after coming of the house?
Comedy shows and Bigg Boss are for different kinds of audience. I have gained a lot [of mileage] from this show, as I am getting good response from people. Recently, I met a youngster in the airport, who said that he enjoyed watching Bigg Boss. But his mother would tell him to watch Sri Krishna when something vulgar was shown on Bigg Boss.
So who's really playing games in the house?
What about Rahul Mahajan [Images]?
Zulfi is a nice guy and I think he will win if the public supports him.
Sambhavna Seth was your closest friend on the show.
Sambhavna is a family friend. I also know her because we have acted in a Bhojpuri film called Hanuman [Images] Bhakt Hawaldar. She had done an item song in it. She is a nice girl, who speaks her mind. She participated in all the tasks and activities sportingly in the Bigg Boss House.
Will you keep in touch with the housemates?
I have already spoken to Ketakiji (Dave), Sanjay Nirupamji, Alina Wadiwalla and Rakhi Vijan after coming out of the Bigg Boss house. Rahul is planning to start his production house and has promised to give me roles in television shows and films.
