I am would’ve been great for ‘Bigg Boss’ TRPs: Diandra talks about Gautam and future plans
By Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, Dec 15 (IANS) Model Diandra Soares created quite a stir inside “Bigg Boss 8” right till her eviction when it was reported that she was pregnant. And had her stint on the reality show continued, she says her “absolutely outrageous” avatar would have pushed up its ratings.
Talking about her stay in the controversial home, Diandra said: “I couldn’t fake it. I never can. I can’t play games. And I couldn’t do so in ‘Bigg Boss’. Honestly. I think I can very proudly and confidently say I was the most unguarded person in the house.”
She regrets not making it to the finale.
“It’s a bit sad. But I truly believe whatever happens in life happens for the absolute best. The thing is, after last week’s episodes and my conversation with Salman Khan, I had decided to be absolutely outrageous and not take any of the nonsense going in the house quietly. Content-wise I’d have been great for the TRPs,” added the outspoken model.
Diandra also says she was preparing to kick up a storm. “For the next few weeks, there would have been amazing fireworks. If you say I kicked up a storm in there, then there was definitely going to be more of a storm. I had made up my mind not to be the quiet type anymore.”
“The Diandra you saw during my last few days in there was just a passing phase. Or maybe it was the calm before the storm,” she said. There was so much of drama happening when Diandra and Gautam Gulati were around. How would Diandra describe her relationship with him?
After giving it a thought, she said: “Our feelings were very confused. It would be very difficult to define our feelings. I don’t think we can be sure of our mutual feelings. It’s all so messed up.” She says she met Gautam for the first time on the show. And yet they seemed to hit it off so well that they were ready to hit one another.
“But didn’t I hit it off with everyone on the show? I’ve come away with a lot of friends from ‘Bigg Boss’. As far as Gautam is concerned, I really don’t think I can interact with someone who is so spineless…Would I want to meet him? I don’t know. Time heals all wounds, I guess,” she said.
Gautam and Diandra were seen cosying up on the show multiple times, but there was no conclusion to their relationship, especially when Gautam told everyone that he is just “good friends” with her.
Diandra was also caught amidst pregnancy rumours. But she has denied it.
“I never said I’m pregnant because I’m not. One would hardly make a joke of something so important. But yes, I did have to go out for a check-up because of a hormonal imbalance. This was the second time that I was going out for medical reasons, the first time it was to a dentist.”
“So I decided to play a prank on housemates by saying I am not coming back to the house for health reasons. I absolutely never ever once said that I was pregnant.”
Ironically, Diandra’s wish came true. She was evicted. The model now has movie plans.
“I already have two films — both produced by Pooja Bhatt, one of them directed by Soni Razdan. They were supposed to start in September-October 2014. Luckily, they got pushed to to February 2015. These are my baby steps into movies.
“I’ve never planned my life. Whenever I planned I messed it up. So I go with the flow. Let me see, what’s in store,” she said.
