Bigg new Besides to Boss reality being OTT'S shows. a part Divya of Splitsvill­a, Agarwal is Ace not of Space Bigg Boss and Roadies, house in its she 13th also season entered when the her ex-boyfriend Priyank Sharma was a contestant.

Divya began her career as a dance choreograp­her and ran an academy at the age of 17 with over 700 students. Later, she joined the Terence Lewis Academy and gained recognitio­n.

She has also worked as Katrina Kaif's body double in ads. She will be seen in a prominent role in the gangster drama, Cartel, which streams later this month. Before entering the Bigg Boss house, Divya chatted and says, "I will try to keep the toxic people away, so that I can perform the tasks better."

Do you think you have an edge over others as you are a regular on reality shows and even won MTV's Ace of Space?

Definitely. It's going to be easier for me when it comes to performing under pressure and with cameras around all the time. Ace of Space was even more challengin­g because we had to survive in a very small place with people we had just met. The contestant­s of Bigg Boss will have an advantage if they have seen me in my past reality shows. I don't know how much that will change my game but I am completely prepared for it.

My real life struggles have given me an immense amount of confidence and I have become fearless.

I think I have been preparing myself knowingly or knowingly for this show. I love my personalit­y; hope people love my personalit­y too.

I will try to keep the toxic people away, so that I can perform the tasks better.

People generally sign up for the show when they need a push in their career.

Yes. But I am seen in one of my biggest projects, Ekta Kapoor's Web series Cartel and I have a pivotal role in that. So everything is good outside.

I am doing Bigg Boss to discover myself and showcase my individual­ity.

In an interview, you have said that your tongue is your weapon.

My tongue is my weapon for many reasons. It's not only for fights and arguments, but also for speaking sense and standing up for the right reasons.

I have been loud on my previous shows, but I am going to control my temper and work on my tolerance level.

I am going to speak only when needed. I hate to fight for meaningles­s topics. I have always spoken my heart out.

Honesty is my real weapon.

I may just look into their eyes and the silence may scare the shit out of everyone (laughs).

Do you think it will help you if your actor-boyfriend Varun Sood steps inside the Bigg Boss house?

No, he is my weakness. A show like Bigg Boss is about your individual­ity.

At times, it becomes difficult to decide for yourself or somebody you love. I don't want him to stress me out. I just want him to come and see me in the family week or probably promote his work (laughs).

Any contestant­s in the past seasons that you have liked?

In Bigg Boss Season 14, I liked Rubina Dilaik and Rahul Vaidya.

I know they were fighting against each other, but I used to like both of them.

Have you taken any tips from your exboyfrien­d Priyank Sharma?

Not really. He has explained a few things about the show to me.

I am going to do what I feel is right and follow my heart.

Karan Johar is the host of Bigg Boss OTT. Your thoughts?

He is quite an entertaine­r himself. The first film I worked on was Karan Johar's Student of the year. I was a background artist.
