UPSET: Sherlyn Chopra
Sherlyn Chopra, still raw from her reality show experience, talks to BT…

REAGAN GAVIN RASQUINHA Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; November 1, 2009)

Loose at the seams but not quite ready to come apart just yet, the brave and beautiful Sherlyn Chopra is teary and frayed, betrayed. A theme that she first visits. Fresh out of the Bigg Boss house, after having somehow managed a four-week run there. It’s still too soon, the experience too raw for her. Words come haltingly as she recounts, “The inmates would be so awfully judgemental of me. For two weeks I indulged in gossip with Kamal. Then I realised that I cannot be on both sides and that I couldn’t go on doing this. So I went to each person I gossiped and bitched about and apologised to them. People like Poonam Dhillon said that they enjoyed my act, to go forth and come clean. I don’t want to merely read the Bible, but to live the Word. But then there were others who thought that this was all just a facade. How could they be so cruel? Is this the level at which they think? Must they taint me with the same
brush?”

The mixed emotion in her voice is unmistakable as a cocktail of feelings put together by the shoddy treatment that was meted to her. It’s something she wants to wash off her hands and move on. “Yes, I came across as a loner on the show and that came across from Day 1. I’m not a good talker, I’m a good listener. Is there anything wrong with that? They, of course, took the liberty of coming to the conclusion that this was because of my ego or that I had attitude! You know, I love doing chores around the house, the dishes… whatever! In fact, I have obsessive compulsive disorder. I have to see my surroundings clean and tidy. If they aren’t, then I will do it myself. So how can they accuse me of not taking part in household activities,” she demands to know, adding, “And when I would get into these tasks, they’d pass bitchy comments to the effect that I prefer to do domestic chores rather than talk to them.” Gossip certainly seems to be the name of the game in the house. But then all is not woe, with the true natures of the inmates coming increasingly to the fore, it’s all down to who is friend and who is foe. “It was a combination of conspiracy and desperation that got me evicted,” reflects Sherlyn. Well, there is always wisdom in hindsight… Moving on, though, she’s now back in the real world from her short exile. A world where she is appreciated more. She is, of course, wildly popular and one of the most downloaded women, her pictures sizzling up many a PC screen. She digs this, and her spirits immediately perk up when she is reminded of this. So how does she feel? “Yes, the response is awesome, and I get a lot of offers for photoshoots, a lot of people would love to connect with me but I keep reminding them that I have an exclusive agreement with the Times.” Atta girl, Sherlyn! The house may be one less without you, but we for sure, are richer for your return.
