I thought I’d be at the ‘Bigg Boss’ house only for a week be­cause In­dia didn’t know me or per­haps would dis­ap­prove of me.

Savvy - - Believe I -

Of course, I was pet­ri­fied. But I thought I’d be at the ‘Bigg Boss’ house only for a week be­cause In­dia didn’t know me or per­haps would dis­ap­prove of me. But I ended up be­ing there for a longer time.

The funny thing is I ac­tu­ally learnt to do a Bol­ly­wood dance just be­fore I en­tered the ‘Bigg Boss’ house. I re­hearsed for my open­ing dance and I was re­ally ner­vous as I am a ter­ri­ble dancer, but I per­formed al­right. But the worst thing was that I had to say bye to Daniel. We have never been apart and I was su­per scared. I wanted to cry but I plas­tered a smile on my face.

BE­ING LOCKED UP

At the ‘Bigg Boss’ house, I was com­pletely my­self. I didn’t have any plan, nor did we (Daniel and I) de­vice an im­age for me to project. The way I was in ‘Bigg Boss’, that’s the way I am in real life. And the au­di­ence loved me. I had en­tered as a wild card con­tes­tant, so I as­sumed it would take the au­di­ence time to warm up to me. But they liked me and I stayed on for seven weeks. I re­ally en­joyed my stint in there. Of course, I loved in­ter­act­ing with Sal­man Khan. He was al­ways very nice to me.

BOL­LY­WOOD DE­BUT

And through ‘Bigg Boss’ I bagged my de­but film in Bol­ly­wood. What hap­pened was that pro­duc­erdi­rec­tor Ma­hesh Bhatt came into the ‘Bigg Boss’ house and of­fered me a film which he said was be­ing di­rected by his daugh­ter Pooja. Since I didn’t know any­thing about Bol­ly­wood, I didn’t have a clue who he was - and I feel re­ally bad now about that.
