Losliya is the new Oviya: Fathima Babu

He calls me ‘mum’. I wasn’t contributing much to the television ratings. Also, I took it as an opportunity to remind the audience I am relevant. Even in real life, I am peace loving. I am glad they chose someone mature like me, who handled it well. I neither did groupism nor indulged in small talk. Without Vanitha, Bigg Boss Tamil 3 will be a tad boring. Now that you are back home, are you following Bigg Boss Tamil 3? I wish you stayed longer. To be honest, I saw it coming. Hopefully, I will catch the rest in the upcoming weeks. I have been a news reader-actor all these years doing films and stage plays, but nothing fetched me a great recognition like Bigg Boss. What more do I need? I am what I am and I will be unapologetic about it. Kamal sir himself had nice things to say about me on the Sunday episode. But post-Bigg Boss stint, it is different. I am too mature for this. I always wish the best for him. More Explained

Explained: Why a corporate bond market

Tharshan and I share a special bond. That’s the only regret. Then, the news-reading task followed eventually. Do you think Vanitha will be evicted next? Otherwise, I mind my business. Before entering the show, I did keep 105 saris ready with matching blouse and accessories. Did you expect you would get evicted first? I provide suggestions only when I am asked for it. I was more like a counsellor on the show, trying to dissipate the tension in a calm way, without taking sides. Of course, I am watching it with the same excitement. Third, most of them were in groups. 0

Personally, I want Tharshan to win, but Losliya and Sandy are equally strong contenders. Popular Photos

That’s all right. For example, Vanitha tried to gossip about Meera Mithun a couple of times in her absence and I stayed away. I guess they made maximum use of my talent while I was there. I also share a good rapport with Losliya. With Bigg Boss, it has always been ‘expect the unexpected’. In the first week, I was given a laughter therapy task. Who do you think will win this season? I made sumptuous chappatis with palak paneer and venn pongal-chutney, to name a few. I am a no-drama person, and whoever knows me can vouch for this. I think they would miss my cooking. In fact, I used to feel bored giving interviews as questions from journalists would be repetitive. They say you played it safe. Now, I have become a household name. We weren’t like-minded and it’s not my job to convince others to like me. Advertising

First, I couldn’t connect with them. But it looked as if you were detached from other contestants. I can’t stand people fighting, but I observe. I think I won. I am not blaming them. (Laughs)
I am sure. Who did you not mingle much with? I took it in the right spirit. Losliya is the new Oviya and Sandy has an amazing sense of humour. Advertising

I thought it was a great platform to showcase the real me. Whatever happens, is for good. I was this motherly-figure who cooked for everyone. I did binge-watch a few episodes involving my participation. I would say Saravanan. I tried to initiate conversations with him a couple of times, but they went in vain. Not at all. Second, I can’t see myself arguing with others. It is their age. Who did you consider yourself closest to in the house? She entertains thousands of people. (Smiles)
What was your mindset during the last week? Though she is loud, she delivers what the audience wants. But what do you miss about the show? But I couldn’t wear them all. Those things don’t interest me. Everything pretty much has been written about. It is a game, after all, and someone has to be eliminated first.
