Talking about their kissing, "Yes, I kissed her. Is that a crime?" he asks, "It's natural to feel attracted to somebody and it's not wrong. She kissed me first, which I thought was quite daring. After that she teased me and called me a phattu. I kissed her to prove her wrong. One day, she dragged me inside the bathroom. We spent five minutes inside. The world is free to believe whatever they wish to, but the reality is that we just kissed. In retrospect, I regret going into the bathroom with Diandra.
The impression was that she is my girlfriend, which was not the case. There was nothing between us and will never be so. I have always drawn a line in every relationship and I would never overstep that. We are just friends and there can be nothing beyond that. In fact, my mother is planning to get me married in a year's time," Gautam Gulati told TOI after winning the controversial reality show.
Diandra was not the only one who has kissed Gautam on Bigg Boss 8. Ali Quli Mirza, too has done it, in an entirely different context however. Talking about this incident, "That was extremely annoying. At one point, I felt like slapping him hard, but had to control my temper. When he couldn't break me with his nasty comments, he started resorting to cheap tactics," Gautam told the same website.
