Balika Vadhu actress Pratyusha Banerjee is the latest contestant to get evicted from the Bigg Boss 7 reality show.
On the day of her exit, she was serving as the captain of the Bigg Boss house.
“I was longing to get out of the house since the last two weeks. I kind of expected my eviction since I had requested my fans to vote me out,” says Pratyusha.
However, the actress is surprised that she got nominated six times when people seemed friendly to her in the house. And often she was accused of not taking a stand on anything and always supporting Kamya Panjabi.
"If something is not happening to me personally, how can I take a stand? Also, I was the youngest of them. I cannot shout at people who were senior to me, right?” she defends herself.

'I had no regrets in the house because I feel if I am true at heart'
Regarding Kamya, she says, “I was lucky to find a dear friend in Kamya, who held my hand and helped me sail through all those trying times.
“I am going to miss her a lot and will be rooting for her to win the show. I want her to win the show, not only because she is a good friend but because she is a very strong contestant and really deserving.”
She added, “I will miss Tanishaa (Mukherjee), Armaanji (Kohli) and Ajaz (Khan) too. The times we have spent together is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. I had no regrets in the house because I feel if I am true at heart, God is with me,” she said.
'I would not like to think about the unpleasant side of the experience'
Speaking about Ajaz she says, “Usne mujhe bahut pakaya and mein chidi bhi hoon. Now that I am out, people tell me that he was interested in me, but I never felt any such thing.”
The actress recently lost her cool when some Bigg Boss housemates, including good friend Ajaz Khan, called her a 'kid'. She admits she felt vulnerable and unprotected inside the house. But she still feels “it was an amazing experience and I would not like to think about the unpleasant side of the experience.”
'Salman makes us feel happy, positive and energetic'
Pratyusha was on good terms with now evicted contestants Apurva and Shilpa and would spend most of her time chatting with them
“There are no negative people in the house but I don’t like the way Andy plays his games,” she says.
Host Salman Khan, she says, “is the most positive person, who makes all of us feel happy, positive and energetic.”
When quizzed about her relationship with Makrand Malhotra, she says, “I have broken up with that guy and we are not in touch any more.”
'I am completely disoriented and don't even remember my phone number'
So what next for Pratyusha?
“I had completed all my pending assignments and put a closure on personal issues. I’ve come out of the experience ready to start my life.
“I am completely disoriented and don’t even remember my phone number. I only want my old life back. First, I want to relax and then I will look for good offers in movies and TV shows,” she says.
