In a shocking Bigg Boss development, pop star and internet sensation Dhinchak Pooja aka Pooja Jain was evicted from the reality TV competition Sunday night.
Nominated along with fellow contestants Hiten Tejwani, Priyank Sharma, Sapna Chaudhary, Shilpa Shinde, Hina Khan, Benafsha Soonawala, Sabyasachi Sathpathy and Bandgi Kalra, the unexpected turn left audiences stunned as wild- card entry Pooja, who entered the house just a couple of weeks back, bid the house goodbye.
According to Indian Express, here’s what Pooja had to say about her Bigg Boss experience:
“It’s really shocking for me. Neither I nor anyone had expected that I will get evicted. It actually came as a surprise for me. I would have been happy inside but I am fine being out also. It was a short and sweet experience for me. I guess if I had stayed for a long time, it would have got difficult to deal with people.”
Declaring that every contestant is playing a game in their own way, she shared that some, however, are playing it in a deceptive manner
She said, “There are some contestants who really try to be sweet on the face but they are quite a player. People Hina Khan, Hiten Tejwani, Shilpa Shinde and Priyank Sharma are masters of the game. They understand what content will work and act accordingly.”
From the moment Pooja entered the house, she was mocked and bullied for her cringe pop songs. The whole lice fiasco was also much talked about in the house.
She bonded with Akash Dadlani over their love for rap music. She even composed a new song with Bigg Boss theme where every housemate joined her in the act. It was termed as one of her worst songs till date by the viewers. Even Salman Khan was seen taking jibes at her compositions from time to time.
Speaking on the same she clarified, “It was quite clear that people targetted me when I entered the show. Some thought I was naive and weak and would not fight back. Others just didn’t want me in the game. There were hardly few people who connected with me. But I am used to living alone and it really didn’t matter to me, even when they made fun of me. Arshi Khan and Akash Dadlani were sweet to me and if other housemates also would have wanted to interact with me, I would have been fine.”
The Youtube sensation has hits like “Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj”, “Dilon Ka Shooter”, “Swag Wali Topi” and “Afreen Fathima Bewafa Hai” among others.
