“It wasn’t a sensible eviction,” says Sahil Shroff, Bigg Boss 15’s first eviction

Bigg Boss 15 experienced its first eviction on Sunday October 10th when Sahil Shroff said goodbye to the show. The model actor talks about his stay in the Bigg Boss house, what he thought about his eviction, other inmates in the house and that he had to start over after his eviction. Read excerpts from his exclusive interview with Cine Blitz:

Thought Simba would be evicted, but surprised you got out …

We were told to get more visible on the show and we took that positive reinforcement and an hour later I was told I was off the show. I was a little confused how this happened. In all honesty there are some people who are made for Bigg Boss and I’m just an actor and model and I’m happy to do that …

Social media are important. Yours seems weak …

Bigg Boss is for the television audience and I’m an actor and a model. People know my face but I haven’t done TV and everyone on the show except Shamita Shetty are TV and reality show actors. Also, if you nominate 13 candidates, it is sure to be the least follower person and that was me … I thought I was doing good content on Voot and had a lot of fun. But I’m sure no one will scream like them. I have a different style …

Bigg Boss is all about screaming and fighting …

I’ve been told that someone as sensible as Rahul Roy has the edge. But here they nominated all 13 candidates and we were not given any tasks to show competitiveness. I’m an athlete and haven’t had a chance to explore on the show. I’ve fought two or three times, but do you really get up by fighting? I haven’t changed for the show. Both Rakhi Sawant and Salman Bhai told me I had to do more on the show and I was ready for it and 20 minutes later I was off the show.

Feeling bad or cheated …

I agree with the decision. I have a very good life outside. I have no problem with my exit, but the point is that when you see the person making an effort and trying to build a relationship, you have to give them a chance. I thought this was not a sensible eviction, even though it is your judgment. I agree with the decision. Because I have a very good life outside. I have no problem with that. But when you see the footage you know I was the underdog on the show.

Shamita is becoming more and more important in the show …

It will inevitably gain in importance. She is Shamita Shetty and also a Bigg Boss OTT candidate. In all honesty, I didn’t see the footage, but I know for sure that when I signed up for the show I was told that you can be yourself.

One thought Pratik had behaved obnoxiously and badly on the show and might be asked to leave the show.

Given the world we live in, we’ve been told that we need different personalities and stylish people. But you have to give us time. And here Pratik wasn’t even punished. Why should I be nominated? I did everything for the team and sacrificed so much. I showed my individual strength and effort, but then I was out of the show. I am happy with the decision because I missed my home and my life. I think that belonged to God.

Strongest player in the series …

It’s Karan Kundrra who plays really well and not just having fun. He even told me I was doing the right thing, even though he was shocked when I left the show.

What’s next…

I had a show that I left for Bigg Boss. Now I have to start my journey from the beginning. I will tell you that everyone in the house is meant for Bigg Boss and I am not suitable for the show. If I had entered the house about 10 years ago, the main thing would be sabko faad deta. If I had another week, you would have seen another side of me. My old page would have come back. I was frustrated but needed the opportunity.
