Who is he
Ok, this is a long list. Kushal is a model, actor, Sexiest Man Poll regular and one of the most hotly discussed housemates of Bigg Boss Season 7.
Headline grabbing Lover Boy
Kushal came into Bigg Boss hoping to get rid of his drinking habit, but he got much more in return. He was the Devil of the Bigg Boss who retaliated to Armaan, but was all lovey dovey and PDA-pro when it came to his special friend Gauahar Khan.
Kushal even jumped over the fence of the house when Bigg Boss refused to punish Tanishaa for pushing him. (Rewind: Kushal had thrown muck all over her and called her unflattering names before that). Kushal came back in, then went back out when he grabbed Andy’s neck for displaying Gauahar’s personal items in the task. After a big drama, Kushal carried Gauahar out in his arms when she fainted while walking out of the house with him.
Gauahar came back within a day, but Kushal had to wait three weeks before he walked in to the tune of ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’. Kushal mended fences with Tanishaa soon enough, but came in Salman’s firing line because of his alleged claims that Salman had apologized to him.
Kushal’s return also earned him a new nemesis in Ajaz, and he also had to bravely drink water from Heaven’s bowl during one of the tasks.
But all this was worth it when he proposed to Gauahar on national TV, with the whole nation going ‘Awww!’ on his line ‘I want to grow old with you, I love you Gauahar.’
Kushal has mellowed a little, but his constant jealous spats with Gauahar are still the stuff of headlines. Kushal left Gauahar in tears after his late night eviction from the house. We could almost hear a collective sigh from the ladies watching the show.
Where was he before?
Kushal has had quite a busy life earning fame and fortune even before Bigg Boss. This Lucknow lad was the runner up of a Grasim Mr. India contest in 2003 and started walking the ramp and modeled for brands like Sony Ericsson, Skoda, Activia, Airtel, Dairy Milk, Reid & Taylor.
He grabbed the attention of the country (we mean girls) when he starred as Virat in Ek Hazaaron Main Meri Behna Hai. This show skyrocketed Kushal to the big league, the proof of which lies in the fact that he was rated 6th in the Eastern Eye UK magazine’s list of 5O Sexiest Asian Men 2012 and came in the Top 20 in People Magazine’s list.
Where does Kushal go from here?
Sadly, Kushal didn’t bag the 50 lakh prize money for Bigg Boss. But his stint won him his love-Gauahar Khan, and lots of fame and publicity. Kushal is slated to start his Bollywood career with a film in February 2014, so his fans will no doubt wait for that.
Additionally, he also has to catch up on a lot of romance that he has missed out on in the Bigg Boss house and date Gauahar Khan. Love and success, what more could a man wish for?
