He added that he wasn't okay with his personal life being dragged into the show and he had a lot of meltdowns. "I wasn't okay with my personal life being dragged to this extent. But things were not in my control. I am not proud of anything I did, but I have to move on and make things better now. With all that was happening in the house, I had a lot of meltdowns. There wasn't a single day that I have not cried. I was mentally affected and felt helpless. But I have to face it," he told the publication.
