'Bigg Boss' is an institute: Dinesh Yadav

New Delhi, Oct 12 (IANS) He had never swept the floor, cleaned a toilet or washed utensils, but six days in "Bigg Boss 6" have taught him all these household chores. Bhojpuri film star Dinesh Yadav says the reality show is an "institute", which proves how "no work or no person is small".

The actor became the first contestant to be voted out of the show Friday night.

"It was a small, but very nice experience in the 'Bigg Boss' house. All those things that I couldn't learn till the age of 30, I have learnt here - cleaning the toilet, cleaning the garden, sweeping the floor, washing utensils... I had never done it," Dinesh told IANS over phone from Lonavala.

"I had heard that there is no person or work in the world which is small. Now I actually know it. So I consider 'Bigg Boss' to be an institute, as I have learnt important things in life," he said.

Dinesh, also popularly known as Nirahua, says he has realized the importance of being able to do all kinds of household chores.

"A star is not always a star. People believe that film stars can't do small, menial jobs. But this show gave me a chance to do that, and do it in front of so many people," he added.

Dinesh says he knew he would be evicted soon on the show, which went on air with a total of 15 contestants on Colors Oct 7.

"I felt I would come out, simply because I know I can't mix too well with people. Playing bubbly characters in film is different. In real life, it is my shortcoming that I can't mingle with people soon. But that's how I am," said the actor.

It's not been a week to the show, and fights have already begun. Fights are inevitable, he says.

"There are a lot of experienced, smart and intelligent people in the house. I am sure there will be a lot of situations where people will fight, because with so many people inside, and all of them with different views, they are bound to have a clash.

"Someone would hate someone's laugh, another would be bugged if someone cries... so these fights are inevitable," he said, assuring that since the show is aimed at family audiences this time, one would not see any abuses.

For now, Dinesh is only waiting to get back to his world of Bhojpuri cinema.
