She also talked about her bond with Sreesanth and told The Indian Express, “My bond with Sreesanth has been the best thing I gained from Bigg Boss 12. We went through our share of ups and downs. And like any relationship, ours also grew with time. Also, when you are in such a competitive environment, you are always on the threshold of emotions. I must add that both of us equally invested in this bond and it is definitely for keeps. I think I will miss our cute banters and fun moments the most.” Also Read - Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar With Salman Khan Won't Happen as Actor Attends Varun Dhawan-Natasha Dalal's Wedding

Dipika maintained her on-screen image of a simpleton throughout her stay inside the Bigg Boss 12 house and kept off any major fights while living up to her ideal ‘bahu’ image on the show. The actor was even tagged as the most dignified woman by host Salman Khan and not to forget, the actor tried to be the kitchen queen and looked a little insecure when Megha Dhade tried to take over the kitchen.
