Simba Nagpal, who was recently evicted from Bigg Boss 15, had a great run on the reality show.

But the television actor feels he was forced to create controversies or enter into conversations just to be in the limelight.

"I was chilling and having deep conversations, but if you talk about me fighting for an egg or a chapatti, then those things don't trigger me," he tells Rediff.com Contributor PS Aaryan Khanna.

Are you upset that your journey in Bigg Boss ended so abruptly?

I am not disappointed or upset at all. It doesn't affect me that much.

What affects me is the amount of input I have given. I was just being myself and did not put any extra effort into it.

Since it was a reality show, I chose to be real and chose to stay strong and grounded on the beliefs and experiences that I have learned throughout my life.

A lot of people have said that Simba has not done much on the show.

I'd like to say that if someone was looking for arguments or fights, then I apologise because I couldn't give you that.

There were times when I had a lot of fun.

I had a lot of happy moments.

I was chilling and having deep conversations but if you talk about me fighting for an egg or a chapatti. then those things don't trigger me.

With whom did you bond the most?

Everyone has been really close to me.

All the relations I made in the house have become really close friends of mine and they will continue to be my friends throughout my life.

But I bonded the most with are Akasa, Miesha, Nishant and Pratik.

Who do you think is the strongest contender in the house?

I think everyone in the house is very strong and everyone has put in a lot of effort.

I just pray to God that the person who was real and met the expectations of the audience wins the show, not someone who gets aggressive unnecessarily and brings up useless topics to fight just for the sake of it.

Who do you think is the weakest contestant in the house?

No one is weak or strong.

If I talk about myself, I still consider myself to be the strongest contender.

If you ask a musician to dance and a dancer to act, it will be difficult for that person and s/he will end up losing.

A person's personality can be judged on the basis of his/her overall journey but you cannot judge anyone on the basis of something that is acted out in front of you.

Irrespective of whoever wins the show, everyone in the house deserves to be in the top two.

Did you feel you were forced to create controversies or strike up conversations in order to stay in the limelight?

Yes. Be it with the contestants or anyone else, I was always forced. They used to say that I am not visible enough.

I should pick up more topics because the game is all about it.

Personally, I don't think that the game is about arguments or picking up useless topics to fight in order to stay in the limelight.

I think it is a game of personalities and when it comes to making connections with people, I feel I have made good connections and had fun with them.

If someone expects me to fight on petty issues, then I am really sorry.

One has to pick up a serious topic for me to fight about it. I cannot fake anything just for the sake of screen space.

Do you feel Vishal Kotian was playing mind games?

I know Vishal very well. He is a loving person and he values relations.

But yes, he had thought himself to be oversmart and had tried playing mind games with people.

If he had played mind games with me, I would have known and never have fallen into the trap.

He has played his game well.

Personally, I don't believe in playing mind games with anyone.

If given a chance to enter as a wild card entry, would you go back to the house?

Definitely. There have been many things that my fans expected from me and they did not get to see it.

I would like to say to them that I am not an aggressive person in real life and I handle situations very calmly.

I have the power to control myself.

Even if I am not into politics or betrayal when it comes to the game, I feel the game of Bigg Boss is much more than that.

People have a particular mindset that Bigg Boss is all about fighting and troubling each other.

If I do get a chance to change their mindset, I would definitely like to go back into the house.
