What preparation have you done to compete in the house?

Nothing actually. I’m just going to be myself and people will get to know it. I think this game, Big Boss itself, is all about that. I don’t think people can be anything other than who they really are, and if they aren’t, it definitely comes off in a very wrong way or a way it shouldn’t. So I think if you’re being yourself, it’s better for people to accept you that way than for you to pretend to be who you’re not.

While working on movies, have you ever thought about taking part in Bigg Boss? How did this show happen to you?

It happened because now I just had the time and I got this opportunity my way and I thought I could take it.

How will you challenge other participants?

I’m just going to be myself, and if they see that as a threat, that’s good enough for me.

What will you remember to be safe from Salman Khan’s wrath?

I am not the kind of person who crosses a line at the end of the day or at the end of the weekend that Salman Sir would be angry with. I know my line, even if the situation can get bad, worse or ugly. Or even though the other person has crossed his or her line before me, I will not do the same either way. I’ve been through a lot in my life and that has taught me to be wise in such situations. So I am that and I will be respectful to people, but that doesn’t mean I won’t stand up for myself, which I will, but in a way that doesn’t despise anyone.

The audience will decide who stays and who goes, what’s your game plan for survival?

It all depends on how it will be, how I’m going to feel in the house and how the situation turns out when I meet everyone. So I think it all depends on that.

What lessons have you learned from the previous season and TV show of Bigg Boss?

I haven’t really watched a single season because I was always busy and I never got the time or chance to watch the whole season but I always knew what was going on in the house and bits and pieces but I’ve never watched the seasons.
