What’s your expectation from Bigg Boss 16?

I am expecting a lot from Bigg Boss 16. Uunchi udaan bharni hai iss show ke baad. 

Why did you choose a reality show?

I chose Bigg Boss 16 because there's no better platform than this to connect with my fans. I also found the format to be interesting. Most importantly, we will get a chance to interact with Salman Khan (smiles).  

In the past, actors have benefitted from Bigg Boss, personally and professionally too. Are you expecting the same?

Bigg Boss se fayda toh hone wala hai. Pehle log mujhe Rajasthan aur Haryana mein hi jante the, iss show ke through mujhe pura India janega.   

It is often said that actors do Bigg Boss either due to lack of income or unemployment. Some are often shamed for it too. Do such notions affect you too? 

Bigg Boss mujhe pehle se hi pasand hai par kabhi socha nahi tha ki main khud aa jaungi. Maine turant haan bol diya kyunki mujhe hi karna tha. Dusron ki soch se kya farak padta hai? 

Who is your favourite previous contestant?

I liked Shehnaaz Gill, Hina Khan, Shilpa Shinde and Manveer Gurjar.
