Lokesh Kumari, sirf naam hi kaafi hai! This season of Bigg Boss was full of controversies and amidst all the drama, we came across some commoners who were just like us. They called themselves Indiawale and yes, we found one person among them who totally rocked this tag.
Though her journey in the Bigg Boss house was for a short span of time, this Delhi girl managed to make her mark despite being overshadowed by the celebrities. Lokesh Kumari is one girl who has been an inspiration to many and with her cute talks and her one-of-a-kind swag, she has one several hearts.
Lokesh talked to InUth in a candid chat over the phone from Mumbai. Excerpts:
How has your life changed after Bigg Boss?
A lot of things have changed after coming out of the Bigg Boss house. I’m getting a lot of love and appreciation by the people and it makes me happy. All of it makes me feel like a celebrity. I miss being in the Bigg Boss house sometimes, but that’s ok.
Your transformation is a hot topic right now. How do you feel about it?
I don’t know why people are calling it a transformation. I have always been like that. Having been raised in Delhi, I have always been stylish. I have just got a little makeover. I believe in the natural beauty, and therefore, I used to apply very less makeup when I was in the Bigg Boss house.
Any new offers in hand?
No, not at the moment. But if any good offer comes my way, I would love to be a part of it.
Who is Lokesh Kumari according to you?
Lokesh Kumari is a girl who likes everything stylish and elegant. Just like a normal Delhi girl, I like roaming around on the streets with my friends. But after Bigg Boss, things are not the same. I am a known face now and my freedom is gone. But I’m really enjoying this phase when people appreciate me and take selfies with me wherever I go. But in my heart, I will always remain a commoner and not a celeb.
How do you deal with hate comments?
I feel bad when I read negative comments about myself and people calling me dumb. But these comments are an eye-opener and keeps on reminding me the things that I need to change in myself. People also call me fat, make fun of my voice and accent, but I take that in good spirit because I know they’re right and I need to work on myself.
Who will win the Bigg Boss 1o?
I won’t tell you the name, but according to me, the top three contenders would be Manveer Gujjar, Bani J and Lopamudra Raut. But yes, I want my brother Manveer to win this game. He is a gem of a person, who listens to his heart while playing the game.
Your comments on Manu and Manveer’s equation?
Their bonding is real, but when it comes to the game, they’ll definitely fight with each other to survive in the BB house. While Manveer never plays with his mind, Manu is very calculative and influences people to survive the game.
Is Salman Khan biased on the show?
No, not at all. He speaks the truth and that’s what many people don’t like. He never favours any one person and always comes out with a fair verdict. Salman sir is a great mentor and I respect him a lot. Let me also tell you that the show is not at all scripted and whatever we say and do is our personal decision.
Your take on Swami Om’s eviction?
Swami Om’s eviction should have happened earlier itself. His rude behaviour and indecency had crossed all the limits. He is the ‘Controversy King’ of Bigg Boss in every way. Swami Om is the villain and has spread a lot of filth in the show. It’s not about the fights that he initiated in the house, but what he did with Bani and Rohan was completely unacceptable.
How was your Bigg Boss house experience?
I live in a joint family and the Bigg Boss house was similar, so I didn’t find it difficult to adjust with everyone. I never felt afraid of the fights and arguments in the house. All that was happening in the house was tiny as compared to the things I have experienced in my own life. For instance, Manu became too much emotional when he was asked to destroy his doll in a task. I understand that emotions are attached to certain things but you don’t need to create such fuss because you were already surviving without these things in the house.
Your family’s reaction to stardom?
My parents are very supportive of me and they are very open-minded. My family is really happy with my success and they love to watch me on TV. In fact, they are supporting me even more after coming out of the Bigg Boss house and I feel blessed to have them in my life.
