Bigg Boss 14 Finalist Nikki Tamboli Does NOT Regret Losing Out On Rs 14 Lakh To Rakhi Sawant; 'Was Never Eyeing The Cash, She Needed It More Than Me'
While Rubina Dilaik lifted the trophy of Bigg Boss 14, Rakhi Sawant lifted a bag filled with Rs 14 lakh. During the grand finale, Ritiesh Deshmukh entered the house and gave the contestants an opportunity to quit the show by taking Rs 14 lakh. Rakhi Sawant was the fastest among all to press the buzzer. She appeared to be content with her win as she said that she will be able to pay the hospital bills of her mother's treatment. Now in an interview, Nikki has spoken about losing out on the cash prize.

To Etimes, Nikki stated that it was never about money for her but she wanted to stay in the house till the end. She mentioned that she would have not got to know about being the top three had she taken the prize money. Nikki stated that Rakhi needed the money more than her and that she does not regret losing out on it.

In an interview with Etimes, Nikki Tamboli was quoted saying, "No, I don't regret that I didn't get that money because even when I was offered Rs 6 lakh during the task, I refused it as I wanted to stay in the show. Bigg Boss has got me this far in my career and given me fame. I had thought of taking the bag if offered during the finale as from the show and game's point of view, the audience only remembers the winners and the contestants who have decided to take the cash and leave the show. But I am fine if it did not happen."

She further added that she wanted people to remember her and making it to the top three is a big achievement. "I was never eyeing the cash, my intention was that people should remember me. I feel Rakhi Sawant needed that money more than me. When I was offered the money during the grand finale, I was not sure if I would make it to the top three. Had I taken the money and opted out, I would never have never got to know that my fans were voting and fighting for me. They loved me and I made it to the Top three, that's a big achievement for me, so I don't regret not getting that money," she said.
