Pooja Bedi: Siddharth is more violent than Pooja Missra

Actress Pooja Bedi, 41, is the latest contestant to be evicted from the Bigg Boss house. During her 54-day stay in the house, she was not involved in any major arguments with her fellow contestants.

A mother of two, Pooja often complained on the show that she missed her kids and wanted to be home for her daughter's birthday. And now, her wish has been granted, and deliberately so, she says in this interview.

Do you regret being evicted from the house?

No, not at all. No show is bigger for me than my children. It's my daughter's 14th birthday today. Before I entered the show, the production people had agreed to allow me to meet my daughter for 10 minutes, but later I was told that was not possible.

So I asked my fans not to vote for me, so that I could be with my children. As a single mother, I take my responsibilities very seriously and I want to be with them as much as possible.

Do you think the decision to ask Pooja Missra to leave because she was a bit violent was a fair decision?

Siddharth was more violent and louder than Missra. He tried to kick Mehak's butt and just missed it. Pooja just tried to push him.

What do you have to say about Pooja Missra?

Enough has been said and talked about her but I really feel sad that her mental imbalance is exploited commercially.

Her suicidal tendencies, extreme mood swings (being violent and sweet within a few minutes), locking herself in the bathroom...all this indicates that she is mentally unstable and needs medical help.

I am shocked that she was allowed to enter the show after the psychological test that was conducted on all the contestants.

Who do you think is the most negative person in the house?

Mehak is a symbol of negativity. She is like a vulture who is constantly craving for fights. And she succeeds in getting sympathy from housemates.

She has major anger management issues. I am shocked to know that she has been portrayed as the likeable person in the show. Believe me, she is nothing of the sort.

There were certain rumours floating around that the host (is protecting her) after we entered the house.

Sidharth almost kicked Mehak and missed her butt. During Aapka Farman the host (Salman) warned Sidharth that he dare not repeat the act.

After that, everybody in the house was a little demoralised; everyone is trying to be good to Mehak and suck up to her to be in the good books of someone.

Would you like to be in touch with any of the housemates after the show?

Rageshwari has been my friend even before we entered the show. Laxmi Narayan Tripati, because she is adorable, and Juhi Parmar, because I trust her a lot and am lucky to have found a new friend.

Sky is an amazing person and Sunny Leone because she is polite and a sweetheart.

Do you think housemates will behave differently when they come to know that Sunny acted in porn movies?

I don't think so. This show is not about the work s/he does but it's about the personality of the person.

There was a different angle given to your friendship with Sky...

You would have seen me kissing, hugging, and cuddling Juhi as well. So for me, both are two great individuals. I don't discriminate between a boy and girl when it comes to friendship.

I hug my kids, staff, dogs, that is the way I show my affection. If people don't understand that, I can't help it.

Sky is a fabulous guy friend and I will definitely keep in touch with him. And for the record, half an hour back I spoke to Sky's girlfriend and we were laughing at the rumour (laughs).

What made you agree to do this show?

I wanted to test how I react to different situations; it was a social experiment. Plus, being a single mother, I need to support my family and the money was good.

I feel very proud of the way I handled every situation that was thrown at me, gracefully.

How are you planning to celebrate your daughter's birthday?

My daughter has exams on her birthday. When I asked her what she wants for her birthday, she said, "Mummy, you have come out of the house for my birthday; that is the biggest gift for me."

What are your future plans?

I write relationship columns for a couple of publications. Next year, they are planning to come out with a book and it will be followed by radio and chat shows.
