Muskan Jattana aka Moose was sent out of the Bigg Boss OTT house on Sunday's eviction episode.

Neha Bhasin and Moose were the bottom two contestants on the show, but ultimately, the 20 year old had to leave the show.

"I am looking forward to doing shows, movies and working more in the industry, just like these people. They never forget to scream out loud, 'Hum 15 saal se industry mein kaam kar rahe hain.' I think they should retire now," Moose tells Rediff.com Contributor Mohnish Singh.

You have been ousted from the house just a week before the grand finale. How are you processing that?

Well, disappointment is definitely there.

When I was inside the house, I was very confident about myself.

Having said that, I somehow knew I would face elimination this weekend.

So it is not that surprising.

When I was inside, I was not sure whether the audience liked me. But when I came out, I realised that they did.

If they like somebody and you show that contestant the door on the basis of a decision taken by other housemates, then I do not get it.

I am not able to process that. Now I feel it was extremely unfair.

But I hope the audience keeps loving me the way they have loved me so far.

Overall, I am pretty happy with my journey on the show.

 

Do you have any regrets?

Neha Bhasin did try to rub me the wrong way time and again. I still tried to like her.

When I came out of the house and saw some footage, I realised I was too harsh on Nishant (Bhat) sometimes when he would ask me not to trust everyone easily.

The audience really liked your connection with Nishant Bhat.

I also loved my connection with Nishant.

We started off as a connection and became best friends real soon.

I think what worked in our favour was the fact that we always listened to each other and respected each other.

I never felt that he treated me differently just because I was completely new as compared to the other contestants on the show.

He was never fake.

He always respected my decisions.

A lot of times, I was wrong. A lot of times, he was wrong. But we always heard each other out.

I feel that is the most important thing when you are on a show like Bigg Boss.

But he did not like your friendship with Pratik Sehajpal.

We were pretty strong as a connection, so he sometimes did not like his connection to be friendly with somebody else's connection, which is natural.

I think Nishant is a very emotional person, who does not express himself much.

So if he had something to say, I would always listen to him.

Had it been someone else, I would have said, 'bhaad mein jao.'

I knew what he really meant it when he said he did not like me being friendly with Pratik.

See, it was the Bigg Boss house. You are facing each other 24/7. How can you not end up talking to people who are constantly around you?

Nishant later understood it.

Who will you keep in touch with after the season ends?

Nishant, of course. And Divya.

What was your favourite moment in the house?

The episode where Millind, Akshara, Divya, Nishant and I were on the dining table in the garden area.

Everyone was making fun of each other.

Everyone was screaming at the top of their lungs.

Like other contestants, do you also feel that Shamita Shetty is arrogant?

Well, I do not know whether she is arrogant or not, but she is definitely a little difficult.

She wants things to be done according to her.

Also, I feel her standard of everything is very high, something that you cannot maintain if you are participating in a reality show.

She would always complain about something or the other.

For her, things are either classy or un-classy.

It does not work that way, you know.

She would always talk about class.

It used to look so bad. It used to look like you have already created a division in your head.

I did not find that impressive at all.

Do you feel she was controlling Raqesh Bapat and maybe that's why he was not able to put his best foot forward?

Yes. One such incident just happened before my eyes.

Nishant, Raqesh, Shamita and I were sitting together. Shamita brought up something and started yelling at Raqesh.

I felt bad for him.

If you care for someone, let them be themselves.

You met that man just a couple of days ago on a show. He has been fending for himself for so many years, so he would know himself better than you.

Once Shamita and Nishant were fighting over something. Raqesh was also there.

She tells him, 'Raqesh, ask him to shut up' and Raqesh does not waste a second and tells Nishant to shut up.

I could not stop laughing.

Whatever Shamita asks Raqesh to do, he does it without thinking twice.

Who do you think is going to lift the Bigg Boss OTT trophy?

I think Nishant and Divya will definitely enter the finale.

I do not find the rest of the contestants deserving.

How have these five weeks inside the house changed you as a person?

I always knew I was confident and bold.

But I never knew I was very humble. This show made me realise that.

I always thought I was not deserving because everyone else on the show has done so much work. But I proved myself on the show.

I believe I did what I was meant to do.

Now I know that if you offer me India's biggest reality show, I can do much, much, better.

What are you looking forward to doing now that you are back home?

I want to do more such shows.

I am looking forward to doing shows, movies and working more in the industry, just like these people.

They never forget to scream out loud, 'Hum 15 saal se industry mein kaam kar rahe hain.'

I think they should retire now (laughs).

I think it is my time to go and explore the industry.

Let's finish with some rapid-fire thoughts about your fellow contestants.

Shamita Shetty: A woman with too high standards.

Raqesh Bapat: I am sure he is a good person, but this show is really not for him.

Nishant Bhat: So cute. A lovely boy. I hope he wins in this house and then goes to the bigger house (Bigg Boss).

Neha Bhasin: Self-obsessed. Selfish. She does not have a game plan and has no idea about anything.

Pratik Sehajpal: He has a nice heart. He is my best friend. I really appreciate him, but I want him to play even better.
