Amid speculations and anticipations, Ankita Lokhande participated in Bigg Boss 17 with her husband Vicky Jain. They entered the show as a couple. The actress, who is one of the highest-paid and most loved celebrities on television, delighted her fans and how! Before going to Bigg Boss 17, hosted by Salman Khan, Ankita spoke to Mid-Day.com exclusively about her decision to do the show which was offered to her several times in the past.
"They [The makers of Bigg Boss] have approached me every year. There were endless rumours of me doing the show. This time, I decided to give a surprise to the audience and take the plunge. The only motivation behind doing Bigg Boss 17 was my audience," shared Ankita.
Did Ankita prepare well before Bigg Boss 17? She replied, "I am going without any preparations. I'm keeping an open mindset and open heart along with a blank slate."
Bigg Boss 17 isn't Ankita's first reality show. She doesn't see that as a merit on the show. "I have never been to the Bigg Boss house before. This is a different reality show, whereas what I have done in the past is nowhere close to this. There's a lot of difference. This reality [Bigg Boss 17] is all about mind games, which I don't think I'll be able to play nicely because I don't work with my mind; it's all about my heart. It will be a different experience, but I'm very sure whatever the task comes, I'll be competitive and play nicely. I want my fans to know me as someone with a great sportsman spirit," Ankita said.
Speaking of being judged for her actions on Bigg Boss 17, Ankita said, "It's their opinion. Everybody has their own opinion and in my life, people have always had their own opinion, so let them do their job. I won't even know what's going on inside, so I will play the game according to my mind."

Ankita is participating with her husband Vicky Jain. They tied the knot in December 2021 in a grand ceremony in Mumbai. Dismissing chances of their relationship facing problems on the show, the actress said, "I'm confident about our relationship and bond, because up till now, all the things we've faced, all the good moments we've shared, all the family things, we've done it together. I think we're ready for it and that's why we're here. We're having a very good, happy married life, so nothing to worry about. We'll manage it accordingly.
Through Bigg Boss 17, Ankita expects, "love and support from people. I only expect that I should make them proud."
