Main­tain­ing san­ity in Bigg Boss wasn’t easy: Ankit Gera

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Shreya Mukher­jee

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.
