Nikki Tamboli, the second runner up of Bigg Boss season 14 has spoken to Entertainment Times on missing the change of grabbing Rs 14 lakh in the finale.
During the finale of Bigg Boss 14, the finalists were offered to leave the show for Rs 14 lakh. Both Nikki Tamboli and Rakhi Sawant pressed the buzzer. However, it was Rakhi Sawant who got the cash amount as she had pressed the buzzer first.
When asked that whether she regrets on missing the chance to grab Rs 14 lakh cash, Nikki said, “No, I don’t regret that I didn’t get that money because even when I was offered Rs 6 lakh during the task, I refused it as I wanted to stay in the show. Bigg Boss has got me this far in my career and given me fame. I had thought of taking the bag if offered during the finale as from the show and game’s point of view, the audience only remembers the winners and the contestants who have decided to take the cash and leave the show. But I am fine if it did not happen. I was never eyeing the cash, my intention was that people should remember me.”
“I feel Rakhi Sawant needed that money more than me. When I was offered the money during the grand finale, I was not sure if I would make it to the top three. Had I taken the money and opted out, I would never have never got to know that my fans were voting and fighting for me. They loved me and I made it to the Top three, that’s a big achievement for me, so I don’t regret not getting that money,” Nikki added.
Nikki Tamboli was in the top 3 of Bigg Boss 14 and she became the second runner up, talking about her standings in top 3, Nikki said, “Housemates, who did not trust me and underestimated me, it is their loss. I just want to say that nobody knows what destiny holds for the other person, so you should never underestimate the other person. We should not try to mock or try to make others feel so bad that you start lagging behind. I have never underestimate anyone or had bad intentions for anyone.”
She added, “I agree I was rude and harsh during fights, but I always wished good for others. And I feel when you think good for others God also does good to you. I think God has been real kind to me.”
On Sunday, Bigg Boss season 14 was held and host Salman Khan announced Rubina Dilaik as winner and Rahul Vaidya as runner up.
