When Nihita Biswas took the plunge to join ‘Bigg Boss 5′, she did expect to face a barrage of personal questions about her marriage to jailed conman Charles Sobhraj, but queries about her sex life was something she never expected.
“I was expecting a lot of questions. I knew everyone would be curious, but I never thought people could go to that extent. I am quite young and don’t talk about all these things…so I was quite shocked,” Nihita told IANS after being evicted from the Colors’ reality show Saturday.
Among many other questions asked, news anchor Mandeep Belvi, one of the participants, had asked Nihita: “Did you have sex with Sobhraj?”
Nihita married 67-year Sobhraj, also known as ‘bikini killer’, in 2008. Sobhraj is serving a 20-year life term in Kathmandu’s Central Jail for the murder of an American backpacker in 1975.
The question not just left Nihita’s mother, Shakuntala Thapa, a senior lawyer practising at Nepal’s Supreme Court, bewildered, but also the 23-year-old.
“I am not used to such questions and they should have exercised some restraint. But I must mention that Mandeep apologised later.
“She came up to me and said she shouldn’t have asked me such a question on a public platform. She wasn’t the kind of person I thought she was. She is, in fact, one of the nicest inside the house,” Nihita said.
Nihita was pitted against VJ Pooja Missra for the first week’s eviction. She said she feels “cheated” with the verdict.
“I was shocked to hear my name. I am sure this was all specifically designed. Otherwise in my comparison, Pooja should have gone.
“I am a more popular person. But I have heard she has personal connections, and I am from another country. So it wasn’t fair at all. I feel quite cheated,” she said.
Nevertheless, Nihita enjoyed meeting new people and learning a few things about Bollywood. Now, she is looking forward to going back to Nepal.
“I will be going back to my normal life,” said the young girl, who spent just six days at the ‘Bigg Boss’ house, where a total of 14 contestants were locked in Oct 2.
And she is not ruling out coming back to the show.
“I hope I am brought back as a wild card entry or something because now I know the nature of the show. If Pooja Missra continues to use her connections…hopefully she would be still there, and then if they take a ‘panga’ with me, I can be nasty too.”
