Gautam Vig has become the first male contestant to be kicked out of the controversial reality show Bigg Boss 16 on its Sunday episode on Nov. 20. The Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2 actor was nominated this week along with Shalin Bhanot, Tina Datta and Soundarya Sharma.
In a conversation with IANS, Gautam shared that he had not expected to be shown the door so quickly. “No, I never thought about it. It just happened suddenly. I didn’t expect it to just end in seven weeks,” he said.
He also didn’t blame his connection to Soundarya for his eviction from Bigg Boss 16. “I think it was just the other side’s reaction to me when I spoke to the other contestants. I think her little over-concern somehow backfired . She should have trusted me more.”
Although his relationship in the Bigg Boss 16 house with Soundarya Sharma was questioned for weeks, he never felt cornered. Speaking to the agency, he said: “I didn’t feel cornered. However, there were a lot of questions and opinions. I didn’t know that my life with Soundarya would become so important because there was no other ‘mudda’ in the house. never felt cornered, but I felt annoyed because it was repeated for two to three weeks. I just wanted to tell people to get a life,” he said.
