'Bigg Boss' helped me overcome my depression: Anita Advani
New Delhi: Anita Advani, who claims to have been the live-in partner of late actor Rajesh Khanna, says 'Bigg Boss 7' has helped her in getting a break from the past despite her eviction from the reality show.
Anita has been in the headlines ever since the death of the superstar last year when she filed a complaint in a Mumbai court against Dimple Kapadia and her family under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. The matter is now in the Bombay High Court.
Anita says living under the same roof with 14 people for three weeks took her away from all her problems. Yesterday, she became the third contestant to get evicted from 'Bigg Boss 7'.
"The 'Bigg Boss' experience helped me break my depression in a way. I was living in a different world. It was difficult. But participating in this type of a show was new to me and a welcome change from my past life. I hope things are different from now on," Anita said.
On the show, Anita shared a good rapport with co-contestant Armaan Kohli, who is the son of veteran producer-director Rajkumar Kohli, the helmer of 1988 film "Saazish", in which she starred along side Mithun Chakraborty.
However, Anita is very disappointed to know that Armaan had lied about saving her from nominations this week, when he actually voted for Kamya Panjabi.
"I cannot believe Armaan would do such a thing to me. He was always so nice and warm. This is such a shame. We go back a long time and such behaviour from him is shocking. I guess I am just too vulnerable and gullible and people take advantage of this," Anita said.
When asked if she would like to go back to the controversial house again as a wild card entry, Anita said, "If given a chance, I would definitely love to go back to teach Armaan a lesson.
