How did you come aboard 'Bigg Boss 16?'
I got a call from the show's team and we spoke for 15-20 minutes. The next day I got a confirmation call. It was written in my destiny that I'm going to do 'Bigg Boss' this year and it just happened.
What will you miss when in the house?
I will miss my parents because I won't be able to talk to them for 105 days hopefully (laughs). When I come out from the house they will be the proudest parents.
What are your thoughts about host Salman Khan?
I love that person, his aura, attitude and image. He's not into politics and I like people who are real, like he is.
How do you plan to deal with fights and controversies?
I will try to listen and only then react. I will try not to be blind. I will observe the situation and then do my chaal (move).
