MUMBAI: British Bollywood actress and dancer Hazel Keech has come out traumatized from Bigg Boss.
Seriously unwell, the young girl tries to downplay her wretched experience. But the hurt disappointment and anger comes through when she blurts out, “I got a serious stomach infection and fever because there wasn’t enough food and drinking water for everyone. For the first time I found myself going hungry with no food. There was not enough water to drink.And for 24 hours at a stretch there would be no water in the loo.The water that were given to bathe and wash ourselves in was dirty and unhygienic.”
On top of all the nerve-wracking problems of food and water there was an obese contestant Rajat Rawail to feed.
Shudders Hazel, “There was not adequate food for 15 normal people, so Rajat’s plight is quite alarming. I came away quickly . But I heard Rajat was traumatized and crying incessantly after I left. I am not surprised. He was constantly hungry .We tried to give him food from our share as much as possible. But since there was not enough for us to eat how much could we share with poor Rajat.”
Hazel, who had to rush to a hospital for emergency tests after coming out of Bigg Boss, says , “I am happy and disappointed. Happy because I met some lovely people like Armaan Kohli, Ratan Rajput. But the experience of going hungry and thirsty left me ill and shaken. I don’t think I will ever forget the Bigg Boss experience. Inside, there we would try to forget our hunger and misery by singing and dancing. But very honestly it was hellish in there.”
The new ‘heaven’ and ‘hell’ sections in the Bigg Boss house are perhaps an innovation that needs to be seriously looked into.
One contestant has come out ill and shaken and another, Rajat Rawail seems to be on the verge of a breakdown.
