Bigg Boss 11: 'It is 100% true. I love Puneesh'

'I can't fake love for the cameras.'

 

Everyone expected Luv Tyagi to be evicted from Bigg Boss 11.

So Bandagi Kalra's eviction came as a real surprise.

Bandagi entered the house as a commoner. The Chandigarh engineer has tried modelling as well.

She was called the 'Beauty with brains'.

Her friendship with Puneesh Sharma fuelled a lot of gossip inside the house, and the two revealed that they were in a relationship.

Bandagi tells Rajul Hegde about her stint in the house.

No one expected you to get evicted.

It was a shock for me as well.

Everybody thought Luv would get evicted, but I guess his luck is stronger than mine.

He doesn't do anything in the house apart from working out and looking at himself in the mirror!

He is a funny guy, follows Hina (Khan) wherever she goes.

When there is a fight related to her, he stands by her.

Is your love for Puneesh real or just for the camera?

It is 100% true. I love Puneesh.

I can't fake love for the cameras.

We don't know how it happened, but it did, since we spent a lot of time together in the house.

Do you think it's right to get intimate on national television?

When you live in a house for so long, you forget that there are cameras around you.

Also, when you connect to someone, you have a natural conversation like any boyfriend or girlfriend.

I don't regret whatever happened between Puneesh and me.

I won't say it was right, but it happened on the spur of the moment.

Your parents were watching the show.

Family toh apni hi hai. I am sure they will understand once I speak to them.

Your housemates felt your romance was exaggerated.

People inside the house are very smart; they wanted people to talk about it.

I was prepared for positive as well as negative reactions.

Your boyfriend Dennis Nagpal said the two of you were supposed to get married.

Do I look like a person who will get married soon?

I have a career ahead of me.

I dated him for a while, but it's not like I had a boyfriend.

Then I went inside the house and started seeing someone.

I had broken off with him before I went inside the house. He is just doing this for publicity.

You didn't get along with Hina.

I tried to connect with Hina, but she had her jealousies or insecurities from Day One.

She kept talking about Puneesh and me and that came out as personal vengeance in the tasks.

She needs supporters around her to justify her statements.

Once Priyank Sharma and Luv get evicted, we will see how strong she is.

Hina is playing (an) evil (character).

She played a dutiful bahu in a serial (Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai), but her character is completely the opposite.

I am sure her fans get a shock seeing her off screen image.

I didn't expect her to be like this. She's completely negative and pathetic.

I don't want to be in touch with Hina and Priyank. He doesn't know to respect a woman.

Also, Arshi Khan for her bad language.

Who are the smartest players in the house?

Vikas Gupta and Shilpa Shinde. They will give each other tough competition.

Vikas might win the show.

What's next for you?

I want to do good work in television and films.

Whatever comes my way, if it suits me, I will do it.
