Hiten Tejwani


Last weekend witnessed the unexpected eviction of Hiten Tejwani from Bigg Boss’ house. Speaking about his eviction, Hiten told to a leading Indian daily, “Some of the housemates believe I could be a threat and so chucked me out. But I am surprised at their choice. There’s no fun playing with the weak, it would have been exciting if they decided to go with the strong one and fight it out till the end.”

Talking about the emotions that he is dealing after the eviction, Hiten said,  “There’s no anger but I am really disappointed about this twist. After meeting my family last week, I was more pepped up and had more enthusiasm to play the game. Sadly the housemates decided to play dirty and here I am out of the game.”

Adding further the actor was asked about whether the caller exposed his secret which thereby, impacted his game. He said, “I never intended to hurt Arshi nor was I playing a sly game. Since Shilpa and Arshi were at loggerheads, I only wanted to maintain peace. But ironically yes, it was Shilpa who voted against me.”

Talking about whether Hina Khan calling him the puppet of Vikas Gupta caused any impact on the votes for him, Hiten said, “Not at all, my audience knows the truth. As for Vikas, we were great friends, even sharing the bed together so we had similar takes on various things. Though we played mutually sometime we had our share of arguments and debates too. Also, we both respect each other and there were times that Vikas listened to me.”

As Salman Khan revered him for his endevour to bring sanity in the house, to this Hiten said, “That’s the best I could do. I never wanted to play cheap tricks. And that has brought me more respect. And as Salman said, this would only take me far in the journey.”

Hiten also mentioned about the love and respect that he has achieved in the show by stating, “Very few people come out of Bigg Boss with such a clean slate. I remained unscathed from whatever happened in the game. And I truly feel that this is my biggest reward. Also, I have come out as a more calmer person and now nothing can affect me (laughs). I also learnt a lot of household chores, which I never even tried doing in my home.”

Speaking about Arshi Khan and her unvarying support for him in the game, he said, “She is a very funny girl and very intelligent. We had a fun camaraderie and she never crossed her boundaries. Once you work together, you tend to form bonds, I don’t know how it would be after the show. But being in the same industry, I am sure we will keep bumping into each other at parties and events.”

On being asked about which contestant he would like to exchange his eviction with, Hiten replied, “Luv Tyagi any day. Apart from him, the others are definitely trying hard. Also, Priyank (Sharma) could have been in my place this week.”

At the end, Hiten thanked his fans by stating, “I cannot thank enough to the people who showered me with so much love and support. There have been fans, who have been there for all these years, and now Bigg Boss has given me more. Thank you to each one of you and I promise, I will keep working hard and entertaining you all always.”
