On Saturday, Karan Johar named Divya Agarwal as the winner of Bigg Boss OTT. On the finale stage, the Splitsvilla 10 actress was accompanied by choreographer Nishant Bhat. Apart from Divya and Nishant, the top five finalists also included Shamita Shetty, the second runner-up, Raqesh Bapat, and Pratik Sehajpal. Divya won Rs 25 lakh in cash as well as the Bigg Boss trophy.
Divya’s journey on the show has been a roller coaster. Despite the fact that she never managed to capture the hearts of her fellow contenders, her devoted admirers stuck with her. In Bigg Boss OTT, which was all about making relationships, Divya was the only one who made it through the game without making any. Her competition with Shamita Shetty drew a lot of attention, as did her cordial relationship with Raqesh Bapat.
In an exclusive interview with News18 following her Bigg Boss win, Divya discussed how her boyfriend Varun Sood reacted to her Bigg Boss journey, why she failed to form any meaningful bonds on the programme, and her so-called love triangle with Raqesh and Shamita.
She said, “In every show that I had been a part of before Bigg Boss, I had made a lot of friends. All strong players were my friends already. In fact, I found Varun on a reality show. It happened for the first time when I had no friends on a show. I think somewhere I was also at fault. I came across a little intimidating at the beginning and I did it purposely because I thought they were my competitors. I went on a little arrogant side that ‘Excuse Me! I have done shows!’ So, when I came out all my family members, friends and Varun told me, ‘You were so arrogant. What was wrong with you?’ And I was like, ‘Nothing was wrong with me. It was a competition.’ I had to show them that I was stronger than them and I think I have done that job pretty well (laughs).”
