Commoner Jyoti Kumar, who is the latest inmate to get eliminated in big ticket Colors reality show Bigg Boss, says one of the possible reasons for her quick elimination could be her reluctance to play the game.
“You need to fight, back bitch etc to stay in the limelight. I feel a bit sad about the way the elimination dice fell, others got safe and I was left holding the sack. I could have lasted longer, but bad luck.”
Among the contestants she likes Vikas Gupta who she considers her ‘brother’. “I don’t know his back-story, but yes he was very sweet and helpful and really played the jungle task well. It was sad that Shilpa ji (Shilpa Shinde) was going over the top while attacking him.”
While hoping that Vikas bhaiya wins she feels that Hina Khan is playing the game well, “She is a strong contender to go the whole hog. Here, I must praise Hiten Tejwani for he is really controlling his anger. He is also very sweet and helpful.”
What notions did she have before entering the show? “Many people say that the show is scripted which is wrong, whatever you see is true, no one forces anybody to do anything. But yes, the real game lies in editing, for at the end you only see 40 odd minutes of content, so the channel can show only what they want. Like, the full truth about my smoking, which I was acting, was not shown. Also the toughest challenge for any contestant is to wear the mask 24*7. It does come off.”
About Arshi Khan she says, “I really marvel at her capacity to always do drama and play the game 24*7.”
In closing, Jyoti who hails from Bihar, feels that she has become a celeb on account of Bigg Boss. “First no one knew me. Now I am being talked about.”
Looking ahead this daughter of a peon would now want to try her hand at acting in films and TV serials. “It was a childhood dream to work in the entertainment industry. Hope I get a chance.”
We wish her luck.
