'Bigg Boss 9' winner Prince Narula talks about how he will spend his prize money, experiences in the house, his friends and relationship with Yuvika Chaudhary and Nora Fatehi in a candid chat
What's the plan with the big amount
Nothing much. I will donate Rs 5 lakh to Salman Khan's Being Human charity. On the personal front, I have to buy a lot of things for my dad.
What’s the plan now – another reality show?
I had signed a youth-based show before joining ‘Bigg Boss’. I will now continue with that and I am also going to try my luck in Bollywood.

105 days in the Bigg Boss House. How was it?
It’s a lifetime experience to stay in this house because this house teaches you a lot about inter-personal behavior and tests your physical and mental strength . There were a lot of things I learnt during my stay like for example how to avoid some things and how to deal with situations. In spite of many ups and downs, I have enjoyed a lot.
Now that you have just come out, what is the first thing that you have heard about yourself?
The first thing I heard was people chanting my name – Prince Prince Prince Prince. Many of them congratulated me and some said that I was their favourite contestant. I was overwhelmed with the adulation I got. Even when Rishabh and I were coming out, people were chanting my name.
Were you confident that you will win or there was a lingering doubt somewhere?
Doubt, like I would say, in the interim for some time, there were apprehensions about what was being shown to the audience. On the other side, I also knew that people do love me and would forgive me, which I think they did.
Who would you consider as your friends in the house and your enemies?
Suyyash, Kishwer, Nora, Yuvika, Keith and Rochelle are my friends. I have no enemies. I have had skirmishes with some other contestants but now we are cool.
What was the most shocking moment inside the house?
I would say the 'Ticket to Finale' task where either Kishwer or I had to leave the task and go back. That really shook me.
Had Kishwer stayed back, would you think she would have won?
Yes, maybe but we decided on the basis on the one hour discussion we had, we thought that people would support me more. Hence we decided that Kishwer would take 15 lakh while I take the remaining 35 lakh and come out.
You must also know that a lot of people are calling you selfish?
Ahh yes! The situation that led them to call is the same ‘Ticket to Finale’ task. However that is between Kishwer and me and we have a great level of understanding between us. If there are people calling me selfish, there are also people who love me. One should have both kinds of people. So that’s okay.
Who are you closer to – Yuvika or Nora?
Yuvika is a good friend. She is very close to me. About Nora, our relationship might start soon. So yes, she is close, too.
