Speaking to fellow contestant Elvish Yadav, Pooja said, "I want to add one thing, by ‘chhote log’ I did not mean to comment on someone's position, stature, bank balance. In that case I am the sabse 'chhoti'. When my father entered the Bigg Boss OTT house, he did not hesitate to admit that when I was born, he barely had Rs 1200. I've myself told you all that I've been a big star once but there was a time when I only had Rs 4,000 in my bank account.”
Pooja also said that the reason behind her financial struggles was that she “never begged or asked for money from anyone.” She said, “I have seen ups and downs in my life, which is common in the entertainment industry. Hence, by 'chhote log', I had meant 'chhoti soch' (small thinking).”
Pooja's remarks come after she had called the contestants “chhote log” during a task earlier this week. Clarifying her remark, Pooja Bhatt added that her words were misinterpreted. She said, “Mera meaning chhoti soch tha... Yahan par agar log ek dusre ke ek ek words ko pakad ke baith jaate hain na... toh nobody would have spoken to each other. [I meant poor thinking only. If we start picking words like this, no one will be able to talk freely inside the house.] Understand the thoughts behind the words. I also gave an explanation that by chhote log I meant chhoti soch.”
Meanwhile, the Bigg Boss OTT 2 finale will be held on August 14. Pooja is one of the top five contestants and is considered to be a strong contender for the title.
