New Delhi: Radio jockey Pritam Singh, who exited the popular reality show "Bigg Boss Halla Bol" by taking Rs.25 lakh, says it was a wise step for him to leave the show on the grand finale as he was confidant about his defeat.
His co-contestant Gautam Gulati was declared the winner of the spin-off of "Bigg Boss 8" Sunday with Karishma Tanna finishing as the first runner-up. Pritam stood third in the competition.
"I could not be overconfident about myself. Gautam was stronger than me and he had a great fan following outside. The youth was supporting him. So because of that thing, I knew it already that he will be the winner," Pritam told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
"But I'm happy that I managed to come so far in the show. Winning or losing it doesn't matter as the show will help me in building my future," he added.
Pritam was the favourite of most of the former contestants and audience because of his calm image inside the "Bigg Boss" house. Later, he became popular for his association with the P3G group, which also included Puneet Issar, Praneet Bhat and Gautam.
Talking about his four months' stay in the show, Pritam said: "The contestants, who were there had some bad experience with me. But still I was there in the last three and I'm happy with that. I showed my anger in bits and pieces only, like during the tasks."
"Also I've learned a lot from the show. 'Bigg Boss' has given me recognition."
Talking about his gang P3G, he added: "P3G rocks and it will continue to rock. We will continue our friendship with each other in future. P3G was entertaining the viewers at each and every point. That's why the group lasted for long."
Post "Bigg Boss", Pritam is planning a family vacation and says he'd love to do more shows on TV.
