Vindu hopes for a turn around after Bigg Boss

And he hopes the win to be a turn around the way it was for Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty when she won “Celebrity Big Brother” in 2007 - the international version of the show.

“I am absolutely hoping that my life takes a positive turn just like it happened to Shilpa Shetty when she won the show on an international level. I am confident that after winning the show, I can move forward in my life and career,” Vindu said after winning the show.

“I wish this boosts my career in the sense that I get better roles with better actors and filmmakers,” said the actor, who was last seen in “Kambakkht Ishq” with Akshay Kumar.
“The very fact that I have earned most number of votes, shows that audience loves me a lot. I now hope that similarly, another lottery opens for me and I get a chance to do more work,” the 45-year-old actor said.

Considering the fate of previous winners who failed to make any mark, Vindu defends his optimism. “It is upto winner’s of such shows on how they encash their victory. One has to be active to use the available opportunity properly,” he said.

He became one of the main TRP-earning contestants for his sudden bouts of anger. He was often the man behind most of the plotting and planning on the show and engaged in many verbal fights with his co-contestants.

Despite his father’s legacy, Vindu couldn’t make it big in Bollywod. He made his acting debut with Hindi film “Karan” in 1994. But the actor was later seen mostly in supporting roles.

Disheartened, he tried his luck on the small screen in serials like “Jai Shri Hanuman”, “Ssshhhh...Koi Hai” and “Karma”. But he couldn’t strike gold with either movies or TV.
But for now, things seem to have taken a good turn for Vindu. It was a double delight for the 45-year-old actor, as he not only pocketed the Rs one crore prize money, but also won the award for most stylish and bold inmate in the house thus entitling him for a Chevrolet Cruise.

“I have never earned so much money in one day. I feel on top of the world.”
Vindu also said he would not have minded if Poonam Dhillon was the winner.
“If not me, I would have been equally happy even if Poonam Dhillon won. Anyone else winning it would have been unfair,” he said. The actor also brushed aside any competition from the third finalist and former Mr India Pravesh Rana.

“There cannot be any competition from liars. At the end it is always the truth that wins. Levelling false allegations does not help much,” he added.
