I’ll commit suicide if I’ve to stay with someone like Dolly: Sameer SoniBy IANS

NEW DELHI - Sameer Soni is aghast. The model-turned-actor, who has been kicked out of the “Bigg Boss 4″ house after a fight with Dolly Bindra, says he would either commit suicide or kill if he is asked to live with someone as “loud” as the actress.
Dolly was evicted too.
“Suicide or murder seem like good options if I have to stay with anyone even close to being her! Gosh! She was too much,” Sameer told IANS on phone from Lonavala.
The actor, who was among the most gentle and calm contestants on the show, was asked to leave the show following a major verbal fight over Dolly’s vulgar and abusive argument with TV actress Shweta Tiwari.
He feels “disappointed” and says the decision was “unfair”.
“I don’t regret whatever happened. If I knew I was going to be tormented and abused, I wouldn’t have gone for the show. I wasn’t expecting anyone to use such atrocious language, putting everyone to shame.
“I was nearly physically assaulted, and still the decision to ask me to move out was taken. It is unfair and I don’t have faith in the show at all now. I didn’t think it was wrong to stand up for a woman’s dignity,” said Sameer, who featured as a gay fashion designer in Madhur Bhandarkar’s “Fashion” and played a director in Karan Johar’s “I Hate Luv Storys”.
He is all the more surprised that none of the other housemates “moved an inch” when Dolly was hurling abuses at Shweta.
“Nobody moved. The situation was getting out of hand and someone had to intervene. So I did,” he said.
But wasn’t he disappointed that Shweta, who had vowed to leave the “Bigg Boss” house, ended up going back on her words?
“See, everyone in there has a game to win. Ultimately, its all about themselves, and no one is a friend in ‘Bigg Boss’.”
Nevertheless, Sameer says he had a “fantastic” experience and that he would have loved to stay longer.
With his ouster, he has even missed out on spending time with former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson, who is on a three-day visit to the show. But he isn’t complaining.
“Nah! I didn’t have any major attraction for her. I have already seen enough spicy stuff on ‘Bigg Boss’. But yes, it would have been nice to interact with her and get to know her as a person and her thoughts about our country,” said Sameer.
His post-”Bigg Boss 4″ plans include settling down with former actress and now jewellery designer Neelam Kothari and to direct a movie.
