A lot of people were rooting for Rohan Mehra to become one of the Bigg Boss 10 finalists but sadly, the actor was just one step away becoming one. Rohan was pitted against Bani J to get evicted this week and got evicted at midnight. Rohan’s elimination was quite a dramatic affair. Bigg Boss asked both Bani and Rohan to stand together in front of their individual buzzers. The entire set-up was in the garden area of the house. Two posters of Bani and Rohan were also placed in front of them. Bani and Rohan had to press the buzzer together. As they did, Rohan’s poster burned into flames, which clearly meant that his journey on the show has come to an end.
Rohan spoke to us exclusively about his journey, friends and foes in the house. Rohan opened up about how he felt that a lot of times makers weren’t being fair to him and he felt targeted. Though he wanted to participate in a lot of tasks, he couldn’t because of being nominated for the entire season. Check out these excerpts from our chat here.

How has your journey been?
There have been a lot of ups and downs. I had good times and I had bad times. You can say it was a complete package Though some commoners were too much to handle. It was difficult to keep calm and things would get out of hands because of them.
You can say Priyanka Jagga and Om Swami.
Did you expect to survive in the house for 100 days?
Honestly, I never expected to stay in the show for so long. I did not enter the show with a strategy and just went with the flow.
Bigg Boss 10 has cost you the role of Naksh in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Your thoughts?
I have absolutely no regrets.
After Om Swami and Priyanka Jagga, Lopamudra Raut is one of the least liked contestants in the show. Do you think your friendship with her has affected your image?
I don’t understand how. Bani J should be the least liked contestant in the show. She is extremely selfish and in fact, should be the least liked contestant in the show. Even if you are friends with her, she makes things very difficult with her endless taunts. It is very difficult to stay with her in the house.
Your best moment in the show?
When Salman Khan spoke to me and consoled me after the Swami incident. Also when Shah Rukh Khan and Salman both spoke to me together. I consider myself lucky.
Your worst moment in the show?
When I got nominated for the entire season.
Rumours suggested that commoners were paid less than the celebrities. Did they discuss about this in the house?
Not as far as I know. There is a clause in everyone’s contract about not revealing terms of the contract. So I don’t think anyone broke it.
Who will win the show, according to you?
Lopa should win the show. I want her to win.
Do you think the makers have been unfair to you?
Yes, I have felt that on a lot of occasions. There were so many tasks I wanted to participate in but I couldn’t because I was nominated for the entire season.
You passed certain comments on the Gurjar community and people outside even sent death threats. What do you have to say about this?
I never passed any religious offensive comments on any community. I am mature enough to know that. Just like Punjabis are known for being generous, the Gurjars are known to being upfront and not backbite. During the task, Manveer said something behind my back which is why I said that. And I did not say in bad taste. I did not mean to hurt anyone’s feelings. But anyway, Manveer and I sorted things out soon.
What’s next for you?
I will check out offers from television and films.
Now that the show is going to end in a few days, will you and Lopa still be friends?
Yes, obviously. Our friendship was not just for the cameras. We have actually become good friends and I’m looking forward to meeting her after the show ends.
