Rahul Vaidya, who is one of the contestants inside Bigg Boss 14 house, has a successful career outside with his singing talent. Rahul who started his career with singing reality show Indian Idol also participated in other reality shows later. The singer has also lended his voice for many singles in the industry but do you know Rahul is among those performers who does major shows off screen.
While talking to us exclusively, Rahul's close friend Megha Israni revealed to us that the dull wedding season this year finally allowed Rahul to say yes to Bigg Boss after being approached for 7-8 years.

"Rahul has been getting Bigg Boss offered for the last 7-8 years but he has always rejected the offer because he thought he is not the apt contestant as he is someone who doesn't like to give up on his freedom. The freedom part has always bothered him. And the second most important reason was timing. So every year Bigg Boss usually comes between November to February which is a wedding season and he does about 80-100 shows within a year and maximum at that time. In November and December he does about 30 shows in two months. So, wedding being his major business and 80 percent of revenue comes from there he always used to prioritise that. Also, he likes travelling and with this you get to travel to the best places across the world in such weddings. So, he never ever wanted to lose out on the season part of it," revealed Meghna.

She further elaborated that how the pandemic and no grand weddings finally allowed him to participate in the show, "The whole Covid situation has kind of stopped the wedding and no major Sangeets are happening. And when this year again the makers approached him, I think it was just a perfect move for the career perspective. Ab logo ko kya lockdown ki aadat bhi hogai thi. We all have learnt that getting stuck at one place is not that impossible. Wedding business was anyway down, so we thought it's a great career move for him."
Meghna concluded by talking about Rahul's game plan. She said, "Rahul is playing a fantastic game as he is not getting into stupid aguments like many other contestants. He is a very mature person and he is showing that maturity inside. He is a fun person and knows well how to play his cards. He has gone with a vision to be in the house for a long time. People inside are playing for today but I guess he is playing for the future. He is very balanced in his personal space and I could see him the same inside also".
