You may call them whatever you want. Stars, actors, superstars, celebrities... the list is endless. What one needs to realize is that, even though they may enjoy their star status, still, at the end of the day, they feel bad and hurt if they get misquoted anywhere. A recent example is that of the former 'Bigg Boss' contestant-turned-winner. There was an article which stated Gautam Gulati ‘talking to the channel to say that he could do a great job in hosting ‘Bigg Boss OTT’ as compared to Karan Johar.

Having known Gautam Gulati for quite some time and also his non-controversial nature, we thought of getting the facts from the horse's mouth itself. That’s why, in order to get a proper clarification, we spoke to Gautam Gulati, who was more than forthcoming while talking to us. When we aksed about the ‘string statements’ which he had reported;y told the channel, Gautam Gulati said, “Have I spoken anything of that sort on camera? Only if you see me talking about something on camera, only that needs to be believed. The rest of everything is total bu**sh**.” When we asked him about the said interview, Gautam said, “ I remember once someone was interviewing me when that journalist was telling me (off-camera) that “You have been the best ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant and that you should be hosting ‘Bigg Boss OTT’ and that you will be great for it, as Karan Johar doesn’t know anything”. I think that these words which were spoken by that journalist then, now, they have put it on me, as if I had told that. I never said anything like that. In fact, Karan is a friend of mine. We keep on chatting almost every day. Why will I say something of that sort to Karan! Karan is a damn good host”.

After the much-required clarification, when we aksed him about his professional life, Gautam said, “Professionally, I have just started judging ‘Roadies’. Besides that, I am doing something really big on an international level in London. It's something really big for an equally big channel there. It’s a web series. And Iam the only Indian guy in that”. When asked about the film which he was supposed to be doing with the late Satish Kaushik, Gautam said, “I was doing a film with the (late) Satish Kaushik ji with Salman Khan Films. But, unfortunately, after his death, the film got stopped. But it can get started anytime”.

While on the topic of the late Satish Kaushik, Gautam said, “I was just talking to him two days prior to his passing away. We were discussing my look in the film. He really used to like me a lot. He said that he was about to do something crazy about my look and performance. It was my dream to work with him”. And when asked about if he was to be the leading man in the film, Gautam said, “Actually, I was one of the leading men. It was a multi-starrer film. Hopefully, it should get started soon. They have started looking for a director now. After I am done shooting for ‘Roadies’, I will start shooting for either this film or another film which we are in the process of discussion. Whichever gets started first...”

When asked about the international series, Gautam Gulati said, “I am left with 15-20 days shoot. Of which, 10 days shoot are in London and 7-8 days’ shooting is pending in Qatar”. When we asked him to name the project, pat came the reply from Gautam, “I cannot even take the name of the project, as I have signed an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with the makers. But the good thing is that they have offered me a horror series after I am done with this one”.

Before signing off, Gautam said, “By choice, I stay away from any sort of negativity. I am a very positive person. I just do not like any sort of negativity. I do not even wish to sit in that circle wherein I sense even an iota of negativity. I am a real person. I like to speak out what is true. I would rather walk off rather than cheating on someone or getting something by unfair means. That’s just not me and just not my style”.
