Actor Rohan Mehra who received immense popularity as Naksh Singhania in Star Plus popular show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai in an exclusive interview with us spoke to us about the current season of Bigg Boss. Rohan was seen in Bigg Boss 10 as a contestant and he spoke to us about the violence in the house, his favourite contestant, his top four and his take on season extension.
How much are you enjoying Bigg Boss 13?
It’s fun to watch the show, It is getting very good ratings and TRP. That is why the show is also extended.
Who’s your favourite contestant?
The person who’s playing the best game is Vikas Gupta. And I’m not saying this because he is the producer of my show, otherwise also, he’s the mastermind. But because he is not playing the game and is inside the house for just few days, after him I think Asim Riaz is my favourite. There wasn't a lot of expectations from him previously but now he is playing really well. Either Sidharth Shukla or Asim Riaz will definitely be the winner but my favourite is Asim Riaz.
This season a lot of violence is happening and rules are being bent. What is your take on that?
Actually, this happens in every season. All this is in the hands of Bigg Boss. I also remember that I used to get pushed and beaten a lot. This is the reason why I got so angry because the commoners used to push me, mishandle me and used to do anything and it is even there in the footage.
Swami Om used to ruin every task of mine and used to pull and push me whenever. When I did the same, I got punished by Bigg Boss and was nominated for the entire season. So this is what I am telling that everything is in the hands of Bigg Boss. During our time, people used to like watching Swami Om, so they were not removing him. Again, the same thing is happening right now, Sidharth Shukla has made so many mistakes, pushed so many times, was very violent but they can’t remove him because people think that he is the winner. He is playing a great game as well.
What’s your take on the season extension?
Yes, Bigg Boss is India’s number 1 show, so if it is getting extended and I were inside the house, even I would have felt good that I will be seen for some more days on Television. I will talk to Salman Sir for few more days and more celebrity guests will come and obviously the show is very big and if it is getting extended then it will be fun.
Have you gotten approached to come on the show?
Yes, I received the call once but at that time I was back to back shooting for the web series and there was shoot everyday so we couldn't match the dates. It’s a long season so I might go in the future.
Who are your other favourite and you think has a great game?
Shehnaaz will definitely go in top four but I don’t think that she will win the show. She is playing very well but I can understand who may win and who wouldn't because even I was there inside the house for 103 days so I know the game. Paras is also in top 4. Paras Chhabra, Sana, Asim, Sidharth Shukla are definitely the top 4.
Which jodi is your favourite inside?
The jodi that I enjoy the most watching is of Sidharth Shukla and Sana. It is a very cute jodi and there is nothing bad in that relation, it’s a jodi of two best friends. Like mine and Lopa.
Which contestant can you relate yourself with?
I think I can relate the most with Asim Riaz because he is going through the same things that I went through.
