Chakravarthy Chandrachud, who was the first wild card entrant of Bigg Boss Kannada 8, quickly became one of the disruptors of the season. He managed to entertain the viewers with his personality whilst definitely changing the course of the equations in the BB house. Now, after the show’s premature culmination due to the COVID-19 crisis, Chakravarthy has opened up about his Bigg Boss journey in an interview with TOI.
He spoke about his intend to enter the house and revealed, “I wanted to live up to the wild card title and wanted to mark my presence. Sudeep sir, in fact, recently told me that my entry had created uneasiness to an extent that a few wanted to leave the house without elimination (laughs).” Chandrachud went on to add that he made the game interesting and feels he has achieved his purpose on the show.
On being quizzed about his biggest takeaways from the show, Chakravarthy said, “I have learnt that I need to say the things I have said without being rude. I never knew I had so many female fans, which I got to know once I got out. I got to reflect and understand myself well too.”
The journalist, writer, and director also stayed in news for his friendship with Prashanth Sambargi in the house. Chakravarthy was always seen guiding and advising Sambargi about his game and conduct on the show. However, he is now of the opinion that he shouldn’t have helped Prashanth. “I feel I should have entered early. I also feel that I shouldn't have helped Prashanth Sambargi as he lacked gratitude, even though I helped change his image on the show and helped him as a friend,” he added.
Chandrachud concluded by revealing that he has been getting offered a lot of films in various capacities after his stint on the show. He then shared that the songs he wrote in the house have secured him some offers to write lyrics as well. Apart from that, Chakravarthy also plans to direct a film where he will give fellow Bigg Boss contestant Vishwanath Haveri a chance to compose.
