After winning Bigg Boss 10, Manveer Gurjar said that he will plan his future projects carefully and won't sign up for anything "for the sake of it." In Bigg Boss 10, celebrities shared the house with non-celebs, who were named Indiawale and Manveer defeated celebrity contestants Bani J and Lopamudra Raut in the show's grand finale, last night to become the winner of Bigg Boss 10. Noida-based Manveer told news agency PTI that he has many options lined up, but he says he is in no hurry and will wait for a "good opportunity" before he decides on his next project.
On Life Inside Bigg Boss' House
Manveer told PTI that there were days when he thought he would not survive on the show. "In the first two weeks I said this is not my cup of tea. There were some tasks I thought I won't be able to do it. But slowly some solutions came up, like observing situations and then reacting. I never copied anyone in the entire house. I played my game honestly, entertained everyone and gave my 100 per cent to the show."
On Relationships Made in Bigg Boss' House
Manveer told PTI that his biggest take away from the show is that he is now "emotionally stronger than before" and insists he never used anyone on Bigg Boss, especially best friend Manu Punjabi, who became the fourth finalist after he quit the game by accepting the offer to take Rs 10 lakh and go home.
"I never felt I used him (Manu). Whenever he said something, I listened. I played from my heart not mind. We shared similar bonding but I went through the process of doing the task alone. I shaved my beard in the fourth week to save him. I was nominated, he was safe. I can never use anyone for the sake of my benefit," he told PTI.
On Life After Bigg Boss:
When asked if he now plans to shift to doing films or television shows, Manveer told PTI he is yet to figure that out but won't do anything for the sake of it. "I'll first watch all the episodes, see what I was good at. I will pick those qualities which people have liked and then decide what to do next. I spoke to Bani, she said she went to Khatron Ke Khiladi but couldn't do the tasks properly. I don't want that to happen with me. Whatever good opportunity I'll get, I'll grab them and move ahead. But I don't want to do things for the sake of it."
On Donating His Winnings
Manveer received a cash prize of Rs 40 lakh and his father pledged to donate fifty per cent of the amount to host Salman Khan's Being Human charity foundation. "My father had come to meet me inside the house. There are a lot of things which people can't get. Inside the house we also got some gifts from 'Being Human' through Salman. So, we thought what better a stage to do this. It was my father's decision. This is my first salary in a way which I've earned. Money can come and go but this feels good," Manveer told PTI.
Bigg Boss 10 hosted by Salman Khan aired its last episode on January 29, after 105 days.
