Mumbai: ‘Bigg Boss OTT’ premiered on Voot on Sunday (August 8). Hosted by Karan Johar, the show like every year has many known faces and some lesser-known ones. One of the contestants is ‘MTC Love School’ fame Pratik Sehajpal who also happens to be the ex-boyfriend of ‘Bigg Boss 14’ contestant Pavitra Punia.
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Prateek said that both he and Pavitra were ‘aggressive’, ‘psychotic’ and ‘possessive’ when they were dating each other. He also said that he will tell Eijaz Khan to marry her.
Contestants in ‘Bigg Boss’ have a history of bringing up each other’s past or secrets. So what if his relationship with Pavitra is talked about on the show? Prateek said, “There is nothing to hide. We were in love, now we have moved on after the break-up. Both of us are happy in life. We have both worked hard to reach where we are in our lives. We have moved on. Both of us have the right to stay happy. I am okay with that (discussion around her). What can contestants do? They cannot shoot me. Even if they shoot me, I am bulletproof.”
Reminded that things often get below the belt in the house, Parteek said, “If you put a diamond in mud, it will still remain a diamond. No matter how dirty things get, you can just take it out, clean it up and it will still be priced at a few crores. This does not concern me at all.”
When asked about the possibility of Pavitra being roped in a wild card entry for ‘Bigg Boss OTT’, Prateek stated, “Dekhi jaegi aur kya (We will see when we come to that). I have not done anything wrong with her, neither did she do anything wrong with me in any manner. (laughs loudly) I do not know why I am laughing, there is nothing to laugh about. Maybe I am imagining she has come in the house and I am right there. I do not know how it will be, but it is going to be fun, I guess.”
He added, “We have only said the truth about each other. She is aggressive, so am I. She is possessive, so am I. She is psychotic, so am I. We loved each other, now we are done with it and moved on in our lives. What I will do is take her to the mandap, holding her hand and tell Eijaz bhai (Eijaz Khan) ‘Lo bhai shadi kar lo, tumhari sampatti hai tum rakho humein kuch nahi (Please get married. She is your property, keep her with you, I do not have anything to do with her)’.”
“We never really met yaar after the break-up. In fact, my break-up was on such a note that I tried a lot to contact her. I am a person who gets attached to people soon and gets very difficult to get detached. I am either zero or hundred, when I have given my 100 per cent in a relationship, it gets difficult for me to detach from the person. I tried to contact her but she was unavailable and she never wanted to speak to me again. I think, we met once when I went to her place to pick my stuff. I do not know how it is going to be (the meeting with Pavitra),” he concluded.
Apart from Prateek, the other 12 contestants on the show are Neha Bhasin, Nishant Bhatt, Karan Nath, Zeeshan khan, Milind Gaba, Raqesh Bapat, Ridhima Pandit, Urfi Javed, Divya Agarwal, Akshaya Singh, Muskan Jattana and Shamita Shetty.
