Gautam Gulati has claimed that he knew he would win Bigg Boss 8 a month before he was announced as the winner or so claims a report in Mumbai Mirror. When quizzed about his chances in the report, Gautam has revealed that, "I had a gut feeling. I knew a month before the show ended that I'd win it.
I was tortured for four months but never lost my cool. After the fight with Karishma Tanna, I was isolated but didn't lose hope. I clung on to Salman sir's words that 'Aapki zindagi iss ghar ke bahar hai, yahaan aap sirf insaan ya victory chose karte ho' after the incident.'"
