In the latest twist of fate, Kishwer Merchantt had to leave the show with Rs 15 lakhs whereas Prince zoomed his way to the finale. After coming out of the house, Kishwer realised that her and Prince's relationship turned out to be a one-sided emotional affair...
Kishwer Merchantt was undoubtedly one of the strongest contestants on the show this year. While Bigg Boss 9 has rather been a dull season, it was Kishwer's upright nature and unabashed straight forwardness that got her a lot of respect from the viewers. But at a time when everyone expected her to be a finalist on the show, she had to quit the show midway. Or should we say, she was made to quit the show.
Right after she came out of the house, an onlooker told us, "Kishwer was completely shaken when she was got out of the house. It took her a lot of time to finally settle and let the feeling sink in." We spoke to Kishwer and here's what she has to say.
Do you regret not being a part of the Finale?
Well, I will still be coming for the finale. But I am disappointed that I won't be a finalist on the show. Then again, no matter who wins the show, I will always be the runner-up because the contestant who comes second won't win anything. I at least walked out with Rs 15 lakhs.
Somewhere, does it occur to you that Bigg Boss 9 was a rather unfair game?
It definitely was. Previously, when Mandana was voted as the weakest contestant in the luxury budget task, she was evicted and brought to the secret room. Here, we struggled our way to reach the top places in the Ticket to Finale task and Bigg Boss kept such a bad condition. It was unfair to all three of us- Prince, Mandana and me. Mandana got saved and then it was between me and Prince. We kept thinking that we won't move and Bigg Boss will have to disqualify both of us and cancel the task. But then, he announced the final amount and said we only have one hour to decide who has to go out. So then, we discussed and I decided that I will walk out of the show. But I maintained it very clearly that I won't lose the task. I didn't hit the buzzer, I just left. I was made to leave.
Are you disappointed with Prince? He showed no remorse at all...
I don't know what he meant when he called me his sister. In fact, more than me, he went around telling everyone every time that Kishwer meri behen hai. But dikhane ke time, I showed him that I consider him a brother for sure. I am sacrificing by nature. In fact, right at the beginning of the show, when Bigg Boss had taken away our bags and he asked us to choose, I asked Aman to keep his bag. He was the only guy who had his bag and I sacrificed my own clothes. I stayed without them for weeks. But for Prince, I really love him a lot and care for him. So for people I care, I can go to any extent. Hence, when we discussed and Prince was adamant on staying on the show, I gave in and I told him, Fine you stay, I am leaving. But you better win the show.
But Prince had told he will leave the task for you but eventually he didn't..
Honestly, I don't remember him saying that to me. But everyone I spoke to after coming out - my mom, my relatives, friends, the other reporters told me the same thing. So everyone cannot be wrong. I don't blame him. It's after all a game. Everyone has gone inside to win the show. Having said that, when Bigg Boss gave us one hour and we started discussing the pros and cons, he kept telling me that he has a higher chance of winning the show. I tried to reason my stand but I didn't push it further. Actually, every wild card who went inside was like, 'Oh Prince is so good and all that' so we also thought he must have built a huge fan following. Plus he has come to Bigg Boss after winning two shows. I gave him the benefit of doubt back then. But I did tell him that you might be a strong contender but mentally, I am way stronger than him or anyone on the show. Everyone has lost the patience whereas I can still stay inside for two more months.
Also, don't you feel Prince's overconfidence will finally bring him down?
That's true. I didn't realise it when I was inside the house because we didn't know what was going on outside. But now that I have spoken to so many people, I also feel the same. Prince is definitely a strong contestant but he's talking about it too often. He is coming across as arrogant and overconfident.
And a male chauvinist too...
Maybe, at times. Yes, the way he says things, it does give audiences a feeling of the same. That's what I am saying. After coming out, I feel Prince is not as positive outside as he's made to be inside.
Do you regret leaving the show for Prince then?
No. I called up Suyyash right after I came out and he explained that after he came out, it's been a week and situations are such that I would have never won the show, even if I went to the finale. So in a way, I am walking out as a winner. I won Rs 15 lakhs at least!
But are you disappointed with the way Prince made you leave the show and didn't offer to do that himself?
As I said, main Prince ko bhai maanti hoon. And aaj bhi main bol rahi hoon that people might feel reality show mein rishtey nahi bante. Main nahi maanti. He is still my brother and I feel happy that at least, I proved it to him. But yes, obviously, I am a little disappointed and let down. Because when we were discussing, not even once, he said that okay, I'll do it for you. I said it and did it for him.
Does it alter your equations with him?
No way. See, he didn't force me to take the decision. I offered to do it for him. I have no hard feelings against him. I told him that he has to win the show now, no matter what happens!
Do you think because of this entire issue, his chances of winning has reduced?
I do feel so. He has been getting a lot of bad blood for his attitude. At least, that's what I figured out after coming out of the house. Also, I feel he is bragging a little too much. He has definitely become over-confident and that might not work in his favour. Now, I want Prince to win but I have a feeling that the game's slightly tilted towards Keith now.
