However, with the love of my fans and their votes I became the top three contestant, am extremely happy”
Nikki further spoke about her demeanour inside the house and when asked whether the outside Nikki is real or the one who was inside the house, she said, “Inside the house there are 10 different people and somewhere down the line arguments happen, so that is also real and here outside the house is also real. Everything is real inside the Bigg Boss house.” When asked about whom she would keep in touch, she said, “Meri dosti barkarar rahegi Jaan, Rubina, Abhinav, Manu in sabke saath (I would keep my friendship with Jaan, Rubina, Ahinav and Manu).”
She also spoke about her regrets inside the house and pointed out the one happy memory that she will keep with her from Bigg Boss 14. She said, “I regret being argumentative and cross with a lot of people in the house. I wish I could kept my cool and treated them with love and respect that would have been better. I would remember that I was the first confirmed contestant of Bigg Boss 14 that will always stay with me.”
