Falaq Naaz admits Bigg Boss OTT 2 helped her emerge from her ‘lowest times’, says Pooja Bhatt is playing a ‘smart game’



Actor Falaq Naaz exited Bigg Boss OTT 2 on Sunday after other housemates termed her as one with the least zest to win the show. The Sasural Simar Ka actor, after coming out of the house, shared that it was an unfair decision. However, it was Salman Khan’s appreciative words that came as a consolation for her. “He hasn’t told anyone that they have played beautifully. That’s no less than a trophy for me. As for the housemates, I had expected them to name me as they want the competition to go away. I have been giving my 100 per cent yet they felt I do not put in the effort to win the show,” Falaq told indianexpress.com.

The actor shared that the show has helped her evolve as a person. Falaq added that having faced a difficult time recently, she had lost herself. Falaq’s brother Sheezan Khan was arrested by the police for allegedly abetting his former girlfriend and co-actor Tunisha Sharma’s suicide. She shared, “After the lowest time that my family went through.. a lot changed in me. After Bigg Boss, I am happier now, more lively, confident and positive. I think I needed this show at the moment as it helped me find myself.”

Falaq Naaz was also tagged as ‘boring and inactive’ in the house. Defending herself, the actor shared that she didn’t fight or gossip unnecessarily. She added that she didn’t fake herself as that’s not how she wants to gain success ever. “I have no regrets about my journey and I wouldn’t do it differently. I cannot shout, fight and poke others, especially ones, who I had just met a month back.”

Her journey would be incomplete without the mention of Pooja Bhatt. While the two shared bonds like sisters, many accused her of ‘copy pasting’ everything the Bollywood actor-filmmaker did and spoke. However, Pooja not only nominated her but also voted her out on the weekend episode. Talking about the same, Falaq said, “Everyone has their right to maintain relationships the way they want. She can never tell me that I did not put my 100 percent. No one can force one to be friends; if she doesn’t want to be, I respect that.”

Many on social media accused Pooja of being fake and backstabbing Falaq in the game. The actor said that she feels the director is not fake but playing a ‘smart game’. “If she was playing from day 1 then I don’t know what to say. I am amused that she doesn’t want to stay in touch with me or meet me after the show. As for voting me out, and nominating me, everyone just needed a reason. I was so real that no one found a reason to point out negatively about me.”

On a final note, we also discussed the incident where Falaq Naaz, Bebika Dhurve, and Jiya Shankar spoke ill about Manisha Rani after she forgot her sanitary pad in the washroom. Netizens had called out the trio for trying to use a woman’s personal hygiene to defame her by making it a controversy. Defending herself again, Falaq said that when she got to know about the incident via Bebika, she was disgusted about the incident. However, when she heard Pooja Bhatt’s take on the incident, she realised Bebika had exaggerated many things.

“As for people saying I defamed Manisha, I think she is doing it for herself. She is faking love stories in the house, making connections for the game and gossiping the whole time. That’s who she has become,” Falaq concluded.

Bigg Boss OTT 2 streams on Jio Cinema.
