'It was my time to leave Bigg Boss, so it's fine'
Bhojpuri actor Dinesh Lal Yadav (Nirahua) will make an unexpected exit from reality show Bigg Boss tonight.
He was nominated for eviction this week along with Delnaaz Irani, Sana Khan and Santosh Shukla.
The nominees were asked to pack their bags for the midweek evictions.
Nirahua claims his elimination did not come as a surprise. "I am not feeling bad that I've been evicted," he says. "It was my time to go. The audience did not want to see me, so it's fine."
'I am glad I am walking out with the same image that I walked in with'
Would he like a second chance to play the game? "I had a lot of fun in the Padosi mud house -- it reminded me of a village. Mein aam admi and I like to be that way. I did not enter Bigg Boss to win money. I hope the show gives me recognition."
He adds: "This was my first chance to show my own character, which I do not get to do in films. I am glad I am walking out with the same image that I walked in with."
By that, Nirahua means he did not create any drama in the house.
So was that the reason for his eviction? "I cannot fight unnecessarily to grab eye balls," he says. "There are a lot of people acting inside and pretending to be what they are not. I cannot do that."
At the same time, Nirahua made it a point to show that one couldn't mess with him either. Every time Imam would try his antics, Nirahua would be ready to fight him.
'Imam would trouble everyone without any reason and then apologise'
Who was the troublemaker in the house? Pat comes his answer: "Imam."
"He would trouble everyone without any reason and then apologise. Then, he would do it again deliberately to generate heat and stay on in the game," he says.
"Most of them are playing games but Imam was irritating. I had told Bigg Boss if he continues doing it, I would beat him up. I know that's against the rules but it was getting too much to handle."
'Rajeev does everything for the footage while Aashka's reactions are fake'
Who are the fakes in the house? "Rajeev (Paul) and Ashaka (Goradia)," he answers. "Rajeev does everything for the footage while Aashka's reactions are fake. Most of the time she's acting."
He adds that Sapna (Bhavnani), Karishma (Kotak) and Vishal (Karwal) are natural.
Will he miss anyone in the house? "I will miss all the contestants but Sapna and Santosh will top the list," he signs off.
