Several Bigg Boss 14 contestants have revealed personal aspects of their lives that helped their fans to understand them better. Contestants like Eijaz Khan and Rubina Dilaik have opened up about their mental health that inspired many viewers. Actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee had also spoken about her childhood trauma on the show and bared her heart to her fans. Now, in a recent interview, the actress talked about her childhood struggles and how they shaped her personality for good.
The Saath Nibhana Saathiya actress lost her father when she was merely 11-years-old. She saw her mother working hard to make ends meet and sadly, had to also endure the nasty judgemental comments of society. While talking to a leading daily, Devoleena expressed that this phase made her indifferent towards society's opinions. She said, "That was the phase which has turned me into who I am today. If I talk about the good points, then it has made me strong, fearless. I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but now I don’t care about society."
She further added that her trauma made her stubborn in life and allowed her to live it as per her own will and conditions. Devo said, "Today, I don’t care ke log kya bolenge ya kya soch rahe honge. Logon ke hisab se mujhe jeena hi nahi hai. My childhood struggles have made me so stubborn in my life that logun ke hisab se mein kabhi nahi chalungi. Main jaisi hun waisi if you like, then it is good, nahi toh tab bhi it is okay. This is who I am."
During her stint in BB 14, Devoleena revealed a different side of her personality that made her fans believe that she was temperamental. During the interview, the actress confessed that her traumas made her hot-headed and intolerant to lies. She said, "Kahin pe kuch chothi se bhi galti dhikhti hai, toh mein frustrate ho jati hun. If I see anything wrong happening anywhere, then I get sad and get irritated. When I am angry, I say a lot of things. But I don’t mean them. At the same time, what matters is my actions after that. Also, I hate lies, and hate people who lie. This is my trigger point. Chothe se chotha jhoot bhi mujhse bardash nahi hota."
Devo explained that it was during her stint in the reality show when she realised that her emotions were suppressed for a long time. She added that she had never shared her feelings before due to the lack of awareness about mental health. She said, "The whole concept of pushing people to share has just started. Today, we tell everyone that it is important to share and express, but uss time yeh sab kahan tha. In fact, even today, we can’t share openly because people are so judgemental. It is very difficult."
The actress added that her experiences have taught her to always be kind. Well, we are extremely glad that Devoleena is doing better now and has come out stronger. More power to you Devo!
