In an intervieiw with a leading entertainment portal, the ‘Baalveer’ actor has stated that she was disturbed when her own friends whom she considered close, somewhat ditched her for reasons unknown to her in the game show. “I was very disturbed during my last week in the BB 14 house because I saw my friends whom I knew before the Bigg Boss game show like Aly Goni, Nikki Tamboli turn against me in the game.”, said Pavitra.
“Being very sensitive, it really hit me hard. I saw how for the game, they really turned against me and I did not know why. Nikki was seen with Kavita Kaushik, Aly was seen with Jasmin Bhasin. Also, the way Aly and Rahul Vaidya bonded in the house, it was nice. But looking at it I felt that- come on, we too (Aly and Pavitra) have been friends from even before the game show. Even if we were not BFFs, we definitely were good friends. Just for a game, you can’t put somebody down or make them feel low, so much that it becomes difficult for that person to lift up herself again. I did try to understand, to gauge why this was happening, but the person in action never understood how hard-hitting his actions were to me.”, added Pavitra.
“Having said that, I know that after all it was a game and in the game, the content was the king. If you deliver content, you sustain in the game. Now if you want to be fake or real is your call. I just played with my heart and never with my mind. What affected me the most was seeing my own friends ditch me. So I really became emotionally low and went into mental turmoil. I couldn’t even eat well at all during that time. But still, I did put in my best foot forward. Honestly, I was shocked when I was evicted from the BB house.”
Pavitra Punia emerged as one of the strongest contestants in the Bigg Boss 14. She also fell in love with her fellow contestant Eijaz Khan. The couple is currently dating each other and there also have been speculations of their marriage that can take place soon.
Recently, in an interview, Pavitra revealed a lot about her relationship and talked about the stereotypical mentality in the society. She revealed, “I don’t think age is a constraint when it comes to love. Especially in olden times, men would marry girls younger than half their age and it was fine with society back then. It is said that a man should be older than a woman because, by the time the girl turns into a woman, he matures too. So it doesn’t matter if the man is a few years older than you. If you are destined to be together, age never is a hindrance.”
