Manveer Gurjar, who was the winner of ‘Bigg Boss 10’ last year, says he rooting for Vikas Gupta to win this year’s show.
As reported on Mid-day, Gurjar said “As far as last four finalist of ‘Bigg Boss’ are concerned, I find Vikas (Gupta) very positive. I am rooting for Vikas Gupta. I want him to win ‘Bigg Boss’. I feel people should support participants who they admire.”
In the current season, following the eviction of Akash Dadlani, the finalists are now Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta, Puneesh Sharma and Shilpa Shinde.
Gurjar, who was at the launch of his debut movie, ‘Aaj Ki Ayodhya’, shared that he “wants to salute everyone who participated in Bigg Boss”. He explained that ‘Bigg Boss’ is not all about a commoner versus a celebrity, as they are all equal.
“I don’t think its commoner versus celebrity scene. Whoever has entered Bigg Boss house is a celebrity. This divide has been created by people who are sitting outside. Contestants like Bandgi (Kalra) or Arshi (Khan) is celebrity in their own right but now it’s up to them that how they pursue themselves in future,” said Gurjar.
When Gurjar was in ‘Bigg Boss 10’, he shared a good bond with the host Salman Khan, so was asked if he was going to approach Khan to promote his forthcoming film. “It’s too early to talk about it. I met Salman bhai (Khan) after I won Bigg Boss but that time, I didn’t speak about my film. Once the movie gets completed then I will talk to him.”
Asked about his experience working in ‘Aaj Ki Ayodhya’, Gurjar shared that this was big opportunity for him and is ready to learn more in the future. “I have worked in other shows and movies for small roles but this is a big opportunity now. People have already seen me a lot in ‘Big Boss’, and ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, but now I want to learn.”
Further adding, “There are talks about other works with big names in the industry, even Sanjay Mishra sir. And I wanted to start as a lead into the industry, which is why I was waiting for the right opportunity. It is not even about the lead actually, if the content is great I would love to do it.”
‘Aaj Ki Ayodhya’ has been produced by Anand Kumar Gupta and directed by Naresh Dhuhlani.
