Actor Puneet Vashist, the latest contestant to be ousted from ‘Bigg Boss 9’, says fellow housemate, Iranian actress Mandana Karimi is a double-faced and untrustworthy person.
Puneet, who entered the Bigg Boss house as a wild card, could only manage to stay on the show for a week.
“Mandana is a double-faced person. She is not genuine at all. When I first entered the show, she was very friendly and she would call me her guru, learn Hindi from me. And the suddenly her behaviour changed. I found it very strange,” Puneet told PTI after his eviction.
Talking about his very short stay in the house, Puneet said the main reason for his ousting was his non-participation in arguments and fights.
“I think the audience of ‘Bigg Boss’ likes fights and aggression. I could not give them such footage. Whenever there was an argument, I would not get involved. That is why I got voted out.
“Fights are not my cup of tea. There are groups in the house and I was not part of any. I preferred to be by myself.”
Puneet said he has no regrets participating on ‘Bigg Boss’ as it has been a “decently paid shoot” for him.
The 39-year-old actor, best known for his appearances in films like “Josh” and “Taal”, said he wants actor Aman Verma to win the ninth season of the reality TV show.
“Aman is very sorted in the house. He has the right temperament to win the show. I hope he does.”
Prince Narula, Suyyash Rai and Kishwar Merchant are coming out as bullies on the show, but Puneet said they have never rubbed him in the wrong way. “Kishwar knows me from before. So with me they have never done anything like that.”
‘Bigg Boss Nau’ hosted by superstar Salman Khan, airs on Colors everyday.
