Bigg Boss 15's Ieshaan Sehgaal: 'My sister and mom really like Miesha Iyer, they will meet her in 10 days'
In a new interview with Hindustan Times, Ieshaan Sehgaal talks about his journey on Bigg Boss 15, girlfriend Miesha Iyer, and how Rajiv Adatia affected him inside the house.
Bigg Boss 15 contestants Miesha Iyer and Ieshaan Sehgal have been voted out of the show. The couple fell for each other inside the Bigg Boss house and, incidentally, both Miesha and Ieshaan were evicted from the Salman Khan show over the same weekend. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Ieshaan confirmed that his family likes Miesha, adding that he plans to make his sister and mother meet Miesha soon.
“Yesterday, I had a word with my sister and she said ‘I want to speak with Mimi (Miesha) and they had a chat. I also talked to mom and she told me they really likes Miesha. It is nothing like they do not like her or won’t accept her. In fact, I am planning to make my mom and sister meet Miesha in the next seven to ten days. Everything is going fantastic," he told Hindustan Times. After Rajiv Adatia joined Bigg Boss 15 as a wild card entry, he told Ieshaan that his family won't approve of his bond with Miesha Iyer.
Asked about Rajiv and how he changed the game for him, Ieshaan said, “I believe that he was concerned about me as a friend. But, the way he said it was wrong and he even apologised to me later. He said he was sorry. The way I said things, that was also wrong. I think he should have tried to explain things in a softer manner, things would have been sorted but he said something and then explained it seven days later.”
However, Ieshaan added that Rajiv’s statements affected his mental health. “The things he told me, things he said about Miesha and my family. I was affected a lot. He said my family won’t accept Miesha, my sister does like Miesha...My mental health was affected by all that he said. I went into a shell, I was very disturbed. I am a sensitive person who will react when told such things. My family matters to me a lot, Miesha matters to me. When I was told my family won’t accept her, It became a burden to me.”
Despite several reminders from various guests as well as host Salman Khan to diversify their game and take the focus away from their romance, Miesha and Ieshaan could not keep their hands off each other. However, Ieshaan said, “Salman sir never mentioned we should not be doing this. He always told us what was right and what was not. And, I think, you should not judge anyone. If we were weak, we would have been out the very first week. If we survived for 35 days, it was because of our own game. We are overwhelmed with the response and love we are getting.”
A day after Miesha Iyer was voted out, Salman had told Ieshaan that he had been warning them for the past two weeks, adding that the show does not run on romance.

About his journey on the show, Ieshaan said, “It is a great achievement to stay inside the Bigg Boss house for 35 days, especially because we had contestants like Umar Riaz, Shamita Shetty, Karan Kundrra, Jay Bhanushali, and Tejasswi Prakash."
