Maintaining sanity in Bigg Boss wasn’t easy: Ankit Gera
Not everyone who has been a part of the reality show Bigg Boss has good things to share about it — actor Ankit Gera (right) is one of them. Unlike other actors who feel that the show boosted their career, Ankit says that this wasn’t the case with him.
“After playing positive characters in Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya and Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, I opted to portray a negative role in Maharakshak: Devi. Soon after the show, I got an offer from Bigg Boss,” he says, adding that he took up the show because he really liked the idea. “My career was already going in the right direction. It won’t be true to say Bigg Boss helped me in getting better roles,” he says. He also points out that among the contestants who participated in the show, only Prince (Narula) got a TV show offer, while most of them were already working or had taken a break.
Ankit is glad that he didn’t stay in the house longer. “It would have been difficult to survive amid that negativity,” he says. While he understood that everyone in the house was vying for the trophy, he found it hard to deal with the constant bickering over food and other things.
“Maintaining sanity wasn’t easy,” adds Ankit, who was the first one to get evicted.
