The strong and emotional Mahek opened her heart in an interview after her exit from Bigg Boss house . She said that she had not entered the house due to Salman Khan’s connections and he was definitely not partial to her .
“It’s very unfair. Please judge me for who I am. If Khan Sahib is a star and he happens to be my friend, then what is wrong in that? Is it my fault if he’s my friend? There was not a single contestant within ‘Bigg Boss’ who didn’t try to make friends with Khan sahib. Why negate my achievements? Saying that I’m friends with Khan sahib and so I’d win the show is so unfair”
Mahek Chahal had debuted in a forgettable movie called Nayee Padosan. She had an accident also of which she had to undergo surgery and had a couple of more personal tragedies, which came out in Bigg Boss 5 as we saw in the fights between Sky and Mahek. She has also featured in an item song in ‘Wanted’, the successful Salman Khan starrer.
Mahek said, “”Even if Salman Khan did recommend me, there would’ve been no harm in it. But the truth is, he did not. I was asked to be in ‘Bigg Boss’ last year. But I had to be in Norway because my father was dying. On top of that I had an accident. I told ‘Bigg Boss’ to approach me the following year. This year I was the first contestant to be approached
If I had Khan sahib’s support on the show, I’d not be out of the ‘Bigg Boss’ house now. I’d be the winner on the show. I’d have behaved like this sweet little thing on ‘Bigg Boss’, trying to please everyone by sucking up and cooking in the kitchen all the time. But no, I chose to be myself at the risk of being evicted,” she added.
If you guys notice, Mahek choose to address Salman as ‘Khan Sahib’. “I was 18 when I met him. He is so much senior to me. I respect him. He treats me like a child. I’m scared of Khan Sahib,” says Mahek. She said: “Only I know what a struggle I’ve gone through each day on ‘Bigg Boss’. Now when I’m out, I hear someone was trying to ruin my image while I was inside. But I know the audience that has watched ‘Bigg Boss’ knows what it is about…I chose to be myself.”
She says, “It’s unfair to say this because by doing so you are taking away all my hard work. I was the only one to have worked with Mr Salman Khan in two films. He is a mentor and has always guided me.
If I was that close to him, I would have played the main lead in all his films. If there was any truth in it, then I would have been inside the house wining the show and not got eliminated.”
Pooja Bedi had said that Mahek was the most negative woman in the Bigg Boss house and she was there due to Salman Khan’s special recommendation. Mahek angrily says, “Who is Pooja Bedi? Wohi jo ek baar nominate hone ke baad ‘Bigg Boss’ se nikal gayi thi? Is it my fault if people didn’t like her and like Mahek instead? Kuch to log kahenge, Logon ka kaam hai kehna. People will talk. But what I am is not reflected in their jealous bitching.”
The dusky Yoga-friendly woman adds, “”Pooja Bedi had gone to the extent of chiding me for the way I spoke and conducted myself in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house. She probably resented the fact that I spoke the truth on her face and on the face of everyone in the house. This is the way to punish someone who’s honest. Does she really think herself intelligent? She has proved the contrary.” Mahek sums it up by saying, “Pooja is an insecure person and it surprises me that at this age she gets involved in such cheap publicity.”
The Dusky Punjaban does not spare Shonali Nagrani and Amar Upadhyay saying that they should marry each other and she has a good reason for that. They are both thali ke baigan, and you never know on whose side they are! So, they should get married because they deserve each other!”
Mahek says that Sky is the most negative person she has ever seen. She said, “He is the most fake person in the house and controls everything inside the house. He does not respect women and can’t tolerate if someone puts forward their view.
He says openly that he will break a person’s will if they don’t agree with him. He will abuse, yell and psychologically break that person. That’s why he made up stories to emotionally break me. Actually, he never realised that he had done something wrong. After we had a fight, he never said sorry. “
Mahek says that she would like to get in touch with only few people from Bigg Boss 5 show. “Shraddha, Sidharth, Raageswari, Vida and Laxmi, “ says she.
Mahek smiles, “I am very happy to get my freedom back. Very happy to meet friends and family again. I was saved six time inside the house, so to me that’s big enough. And I know, I came across well on the show. That’s what matters to me. Ab sabko pataa chal gaya hai main kaisi hoon.”
Reminiscing about her stay in the Bigg Boss house, Mahek says, “It has been an experience of a lifetime; ten weeks in the house have been the most important months of my life. I have realised the importance of things that we usually take for granted. Fights and arguments are part of life, but one should not stretch it, and should forgive each other. Be happy and move on.”
Next, Mahek wants to concentrate on her own clothing line business.” I will concentrate on my clothing line. I hope that people in the industry have got to know me better, and I hope the show has boosted my career. I am waiting for good opportunities to come my way in Bollywood.’
Who will win Bigg Boss 5? Pat comes the answer, “I want Sidharth to win the show as he speaks the truth, unlike some others in the house.”
