A prelude to Bigg Boss 15, Bigg Boss OTT, hosted by Karan Johar, premiered on August 8, 2021. The show, with the theme, 'Stay Connected', is quite different as the viewers get the power to decide tasks, punishments and eliminations. The top performers, who will get a chance to be on Bigg Boss 15 will have to portray their craziest and boldest avatar to win the game. Amid the 13 housemates is actor, Prateek Sehajpal, who is also the ex-boyfriend of actress and Bigg Boss 14 contestant, Pavitra Punia.
For the unversed, after breaking her relationship with businessman, Sumit Maheshwari, Pavitra found solace in Ace of Space fame, Prateek Sehjpal. The couple was madly in love with each other, and they were looking forward to announcing the same in a special manner. All their industry friends were also aware of their love. However, the couple couldn't sustain their relationship for too long and had gone in a different direction after an ugly breakup.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Prateek Sehajpal talked about his relationship with Pavitra Punia. Talking about the same, he said, "There is nothing to hide. We were in love, now we have moved on after the break-up. Both of us are happy in life. We have both worked hard to reach where we are in our lives. We have moved on. Both of us have the right to stay happy. I am okay with that (discussion around her). What can contestants do? They cannot shoot me. Even if they shoot me, I am bulletproof."
When asked how he would react if Pavitra enters the show as a wild card, Prateek said, "Dekhi jaegi aur kya (We will see when we come to that). I have not done anything wrong with her, neither did she do anything wrong with me in any manner. (laughs loudly) I do not know why I am laughing, there is nothing to laugh about. Maybe I am imagining she has come in the house and I am right there. I do not know how it will be, but it is going to be fun, I guess."
Prateek further talked about his and Pavitra's similar nature and what advice he would give to Eijaz Khan, who is currently dating Pavitra. In his words, "We have only said the truth about each other. She is aggressive, so am I. She is possessive, so am I. She is psychotic, so am I. We loved each other, now we are done with it and moved on in our lives. What I will do is take her to the mandap, holding her hand and tell Eijaz bhai ‘Lo bhai shadi kar lo, tumhari sampatti hai tum rakho humein kuch nahi.'"
It was on the reality show, Bigg Boss 14 when Pavitra and Eijaz had fallen for one another. Their bittersweet love story had grabbed a lot of the limelight. Netizens even trolled them for faking their relationship but the two are going as strong as ever and have been painting the town red.
