Mahek: I knew I would be evicted from Bigg Boss 8

Mahek Chahal'I was the centre of attraction in Bigg Boss 5. In the current season, I was relaxed. There was no pressure to win the title, as the chances were less,' Mahek Chahal tells Rajul Hegde/

Mahek Chahal has been evicted from Bigg Boss Halla Bol in a surprise midweek eviction. 

“Though the midweek eviction was a surprise, I knew I would be evicted,” Mahek says. “There’s just a week left for the finale and there are quite a few contestants in the house.”

Mahek had been a part of the show’s fifth season earlier. Was her stay this time better? “I was raw in Season 5 and learnt a lot during my stay. Also, I was the centre of attraction then and there were a lot of arguments around me inside the house. In the current season, I was relaxed. There was no pressure to win the title, as the chances were less.”

Mahek was nominated along with Pritam Singh, Dimpy and Karishma Tanna.

“All of them have been a part of the show for a while, and they share a huge fan following outside the house. The challengers do not have a chance to win the show,” she reasons. 

“I enjoyed my stay in the house though I had a few arguments with some of the housemates. We disagreed on certain things but everything was fine when I left the house,” she adds. 

Mahek says Ali (Quli Mirza), Gautam (Gulati) and Pritam were the most humorous people in the house.

“When you have such people around, you tend me be less stressed,” she says. 

In fact, Mahek says Gautam is the ‘most genuine guy’ inside the house, and may win the show.

Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna’s newfound love has become a talking point of the show. When asked to comment, Mahek supports them: "I am no one to comment on their relationship. But there is a high possibility that people fall in love when they are locked inside for a long time. Karishma has often talks about her relationship outside the house, that’s not working out. Upen’s charm is working on her."

What about her romance with boyfriend Danish Khan, who had proposed to her during the Bigg Boss 5 finale? “It didn’t work out,” Mahek says. “I want to focus on work.”             

So where did Mahek disappear after Bigg Boss 5

“I acquired a beautiful store in the heart of Oslo, Norway, and set up my first clothing store. I was busy with promotional activity and stage shows,” says Mahek. Incidentally, the starlet had spent her early days in Norway.

I would love to do more shows on TV. I have got offers to host shows as well. There are a lot of dance reality shows coming up; it would be great if I can get one since I love to dance. I want to do some good films too,” she says.
