How’s Hina Feeling About Entering Bigg Boss?

I am excited, nervous, and anxious but honestly I am more on the excited side. I really want to go ahead and live this experience. I want to know different type of people in the house, live with strangers, make friends, fight for the right reasons, and voice out my opinion when it has to be voiced out. I am very confident about myself.

Hina Took Tips from Ex-Bigg Boss Contestants

I spoke to Lopamudra and Gauhar who have already been there in the house, and they are girls so they understand me better, so I have taken my part of tips and tricks from them. One thing I know and is that and what they have warned me about - you can’t pretend in the Bigg Boss house because you are always under the lens. You will look whatever you are, I anyway will be myself, I can’t just be there and behave like a celebrity. I live a simple life, I’m a normal simple girl at home, I like staying simple. I love cleaning stuff, I have an OCD. I think I will be cleaning the house the most because it is my house now, rather I think people will say ab mat karo. My cleaning habit is something I think people can take advantage of, people will ask me to clean and I will do it happily, I will do it even when they don’t ask me to do it.

Hina Won’t Tolerate Housemates Who Misbehave

One thing I cannot tolerate is misbehaviour and people being rude around me. If I go wrong, I don’t mind people coming up to me and making me realise my mistake. What matters to me is in what way they do it, that is the main issue of concern.  I have left a lot of work honestly, but I am doing something very different, I am trying to be in the biggest reality show in India, which is an experience but I will look forward to doing a lot of work once I am out of the house. Kuch paane ke liye kuch khona padta hai. I don’t feel bad about not working right now because the excitement is on the peak for doing Bigg Boss.

Food Is Important for Hina

I am very upfront and bold, if I don’t like something I will say it right out in the open, My straight forward behaviour sometimes doesn’t work in my favour that is what I think can work against me in the house. I don’t have a problem with what is being cooked because I eat everything, but yes I will have a major problem if the food is not distributed properly. If I don’t get food, I will seriously be very angry, because ultimately whatever we are doing in life we are doing it for food. This is something I’ll see how to manage, I’ll get involved in the kitchen and see everybody gets the right amount of food. There are ways to handle things, it is not necessary to pick up fights.

Hina Isn’t Going With a Strategy

Khatron Ke Khiladi gave me the confidence to pick up Bigg Boss. I am training myself to cut off from the world, I haven’t checked my phone since morning so that it helps me survive in the house without it. I really don’t have a strategy, I have been a Bigg Boss fan I know there will be basic fights, bonding but I am excited to explore the new boundaries. People will stoop down to a level of talking about me and my family but ultimately I know I can handle it and I won’t stoop down to their levels.

How’s Hiten Feeling About Entering Bigg Boss?

I am okay, the moment I will be asked to enter the house then I think I will start feeling the excitement and the nervousness. I haven’t spoken to any of the previous contestants, I don’t need tips, it is just being what you are. Something has happened in one season which won’t happen in my season, so it is of no use, everything changes every season. I can just learn how to handle myself, which is again in my hands, everybody does it in their own way.

Hiten Is Going to Play It Straight

I don’t think I have a particular category for tolerance. What I find wrong, I will react to that. Currently, on the working end, I was just doing a play and I hadn’t decided to take up any projects. I have a movie for which the shoot will begin at the end of January so I had the time for experimenting and exploring. I am calm and composed, I think people can take advantage of that but this can also work in my favour. I haven’t met the contestants, so I don’t know if something in me can irritate them.

Hiten Is Going to Miss His Family

I haven’t thought about how to deal with fights, I’ll see to it. I won’t be able to meet my family that is one thing of concern for me. I haven’t made a conscious effort of staying away from phones or internet. You don’t have it so you don’t have it, it’s simple, but not getting the morning newspaper that will be hard. I don’t clean on my own, I don’t cook on my own or wash utensils, getting used to that is something I think I should have trained for. I just hope everything goes smooth.

Shilpa Shinde Is Feeling Good About Entering Bigg Boss

Now as I am about to enter I feel good, but before this I was very scared, because I haven’t been a part of any kind of reality show. Last year, I got an offer but i declined it, this time I somehow took it up. Everything is visible to the public, that way at least my audience will know me, which they haven’t got a chance to till today. For my audience I am still Jagat Bhabhiji, which is my role, honestly, I don’t mind being that but a personal level interaction with the audience is also very important. Shah Rukh Khan is still known as Rahul/ Raj which are his iconic roles but I want to get out of the Bhabhiji image.

Warning: Don’t Talk Behind Shilpa’s Back

I haven’t taken any tips because I am not friends with any of the previous contestants and I don’t think I need to take tips because it will be a new situation this time, their experience is different from my experience. I have watched few episodes just to get a generic idea about the show, I used to watch Bigg Boss but only on the days when Salman Khan used to come. One thing I cannot tolerate is lies. I always appreciate people telling me what I am on my face, talking behind my back (which mostly happens) is something I just cannot tolerate. I know there will be fight for food, fights happen everywhere, even in our own households, I don’t think taking that pressure will help.

Shilpa Hopes to Connect With Her Fans Via Bigg Boss

I took up Bigg Boss just because I wanted my audience to know what I am, I am more than the Bhabhiji character I am playing on screen. The only thing that is killing me right now is I won’t be able to shop online, that is what I will miss about not having the internet and phone, apart from that I am glad there will be no phones ringing all day long.
