Excerpts from the interview:

How does it feel to see the outside world after such a long gap? Are you missing the house?
It feels good but I would have been happy if I stayed in the house for a longer period of time. Yes, I am missing the house. It will take 2-3 days to get out this zone.

Did the news of your eviction come as a surprise to you?
Yes, it was shocking because I had been good to everyone and this time the task was that the housemates had to decide, who would be eliminated and they chose me. I would want to ask Shilpa and everyone, why did they do this.

Do you think fights are the only way to survive in this house?
Fights... No, not necessarily. I have been what I was and for how long can one fake..with time, the true character of a person comes out and which we are already seeing. So, I don't think we can say that fights are the only way.

If given an opportunity to re-enter the 'Bigg Boss' house as a wild -card contestant, would you take up the opportunity? If yes, how would you present yourself?
Yes, I will definitely go back as a wild card contestant, if given an opportunity as I said I still wanted to stay in the house. If I go I will ask everyone why did they eliminate me. I won't present myself in any particular way. I will stay the way I was and I am because after a certain period of time the person's true character comes out.

What made you join the 'Bigg Boss' house?
I have had everything in life, so I thought let's experience this journey also.

Have you made a lifelong friend from the house?
Yes, Vikas Gupta.

What kind of an equation do you share with him?
The equation is very simple. We got along well and understand each other a lot.

What is your take on the Vikas Gupta and Priyank Sharma's fight?
They have known each other for the longest period of time and have been friends there's obviously fault in both of them but there are certain things that Priyank tells Vikas, which triggers the fight. However, before leaving the house, I explained both Vikas and Priyank to not fight and behave in a mature manner.

Will you miss giving these bits of advice to them, as you were the one who calmed things inside, or say were the matured one amongst others?
(Laughs) No, I don't think I'm the only one matured there. Vikas is very matured and handles things appropriately. However, the fights that took place earlier, will double up now.

Did you honestly expect yourself in top four during your stay and the way the game was going?
Yes, I expected to stay until the finale. I wanted to see myself there in the finals.

Earlier, Arshi Khan said that by flirting with Hiten, I'm giving him some limelight because he does nothing to spice up the game. What do you have to say about it?
Maybe it could be the other way round in terms of gaining limelight. And it's visible who is in dire need of gaining limelight. But I will appreciate Arshi for her loyalty. She has always supported me. Maybe what she's doing is just her personal game plan.

Shilpa Shinde and Hina Khan fought over using tap water for cooking? What is your take on it?
I have been around the kitchen with Shilpa for most of the time and have seen her making food with tap water. There's no harm in cooking food in tap water and almost 90 percent of the people cook food in tap water.And I've explained this time and again to the people that tap water's germs get killed once it's cooked. We've completed half way of the journey and nobody has had any health issue, so I don't think we should make a big issue out of it. The way Hina Khan called out Shilpa for it, was not correct.

Who do you think has the potential to win the game?
Vikas should win the game because he has all the potential of being the winner and I've also explained to him that his toughest competitor is Shilpa. So play the game safely and act smartly.
