Indian reality show 'Bigg Boss' season 8 is over and so is the drama and romance in the house.

Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel did not shy away from expressing their feelings on national television while on the show but now the runner-up says they haven't decided about the future.

We saw the winner Gautam Gulati get close to Diandra during the show, but now he says he is not ready to take their relationship to the next level.

He is happy being only friends with her.

Gautam and Diandra hogged the limelight for getting intimate on the reality show, which came to an end last night after 132 days.

The 27-year-old actor, however, said he does not see any possibility of a relationship with Diandra.

Talking to Indian media Gautam said, "We will remain friends but I will not get into any relationship with her. I don't think that is possible and even she knows that. She is a smart girl and a good friend. We never spoke about dating on the show.

The 'Diya Aur Baati Hum' actor was also in the news for his friendship with another contestant Sonali Raut, who proposed to him on the show.

Gautam said though he admires her, he never felt anything more than friendship for the 'The Xpose' actress.

Gautam beat his arch-rival Karishma Tanna and friend-turned-foe Pritam Singh in the finale to become the winner.

He first grabbed headlines by abusing Karishma on the show during a task. This turned her and all other house-mates hostile towards him.

The actress did not relent even after Gautam's repeated apologies, which ended up earning him the tag of a hero among the viewers as he put up a brave front against all, who cornered him.

The TV star was announced as the highest vote-getter on the finale of 'Bigg Boss 8', which was extended by a month in the form of a special series 'Bigg Boss- Halla Bol' and also saw an entry of five contestants from previous seasons as challengers.
