The grand finale of Bigg Boss 14 is just few days away and while we don' have the clear idea that which contestant will lift the winner's trophy, popular actor Amit Tandon, who has worked in serials like Dill Mill Gayye and Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai and was one of the contestants along with Rahul Vaidya in the first season of Indian Idol, has shared his thoughts on the progress of singer's journey in the controversial reality show. Talking to E Times, Amit said, “In 2005, we were in the singing show together. That was over 15 years ago – it has been such a long time since we started our careers. I am happy to see Rahul come this far in life. He was a good friend during our debut show, but we got busy with our respective careers because I shifted to acting and he was still singing. I feel every person grows in life and Rahul has, too. While people are watching his emotional side right now, I have known about it since years. When I was eliminated from Indian Idol, he cried for me and I was touched by that. He has always been very close to his family members. I respect the way he is close to his mother and the rest of the family.”

The actor also revealed that he was not expecting Rahul Vaidya in Bigg Boss and asserted, “To be honest, I was really surprised to see him there. Earlier, I thought he won't be able to make it this far in the show. And as I remember, the beginning was really thandaand all the contestants weren't as vocal compared to Sidharth Shukla, who was in the house as their senior. We saw the women putting their point forward, but men hardly did that. I like how Rahul puts his point forward and doesn't take anyone's rubbish. He is calm and knows what to talk when. His one-liners are nice and all these things are something new, which I didn't see in him during our Indian Idol days. He was a young boy back then and looking at his journey from then till now, he has achieved a lot and done well in life.”
Speaking about Disha Parmar and Rahul, Amit Tandon said, “We are cordial and greet each other warmly whenever we meet. I can't force friendships, if we are supposed to be friends, we will be. I am really happy that he has found love in Disha Parmar and that they are planning to get married. If he invites me to his wedding I would love to go, but even if he doesn't, I will have no hard feelings for him.”
Amit added, “He is doing well. I guess one negative thing was when he left the show in-between. Had he not done that, I’m sure he would have won. Currently, I feel Rubina Dilaik is doing very well, but I guess Rahul will at least be in top two. I won't be surprised if he wins the show, too, but when he went out, he saw the game, people's reactions and came back with a plan. He knew when and where to talk. Rahul always comes across as someone with an assertive personality, he's confident about his qualities and skills, which is good for him because we see that confidence in the show as well. Rahul has shown his emotional side by crying when he was sad and that is the sign of a real man. I like that he shows all his real sides of being happy, angry or sad in the show.”
