Urvashi Dholakia
I am entering Bigg Boss as myself — without any strategy. I like things black and white, i don’t know grey — Urvashi Dholakia, actor

For Urvashi Dholakia aka Komolika, entering the Big Boss house was an impulsive decision. “It sometimes happens that you suddenly take decisions, and this is what it was, an impulsive decision.” The famous soap opera vamp says she doesn’t have a
strategy to win. “I am entering there as myself — without any strategy. I like things black and white, don’t know grey. Similarly, I won’t have any strategy. But if there is a need, then maybe, yes.”

Talking about the stress she may have to undergo for 90 days in the house, she says, “I have worked for eight years in soaps. Yeh to kuch bhi nahi hai.” And, what about her twins? “I have my entire family back home who will take care of them, plus they are 17 now, so I feel they can handle themselves. This could be the best possible time to trust them.”

Navjot Singh Sidhu
I will be a symbol of change on bigg boss. I’ll bring positivity to the show that doesn’t enjoy a very good image — Navjot Singh Sidhu, cricketer-politicianCricketer, politician and TV personality Navjot Singh Sidhu has his job cut out as a contestant on the reality show, Bigg Boss 6. “I will be a symbol of change on the show. I will bring positivity to the show that doesn’t enjoy a good image,” he says. When asked about how he plans to change the image of the show, Sidhu says, “The change will come with the right kind of behaviour. and how you conduct yourself.”

When asked what inspired him to take up the offer, Sidhu says, “I do TV off and on. While politics is my mission, TV is my profession. I am always bustling with energy and took it up as it’s something new and challenging. I was offered the show earlier also, but couldn’t take it up as I was busy back then.”

But, being on a controversial show could spell problems for his political career. “I don’t think so. It’s not about politics. I have not come as a competitor. I only compete with myself. It’s different, that’s why I’m here,” he says.

What’s his take on the presence of animals on the show? “Wow. I love animals. So, I’m looking forward to meeting them.”

Vrajesh Hirjee
I don’t have a controversial track record. Controversies give me acidity. So, in that sense I am a misfit on the show — Vrajesh Hirjee, actor

Comic actor Vrajesh Hirjee, who is one of the contestants on Bigg Boss 6, says he’s a misfit on the show. “I don’t believe in controversies and don’t have a controversial track record. I am a person who says it as it is. Controversies give me acidity. So, in that sense, I am a misfit on the show. But I am here to gain an experience that is out of the ordinary. And, Bigg Boss is the biggest reality show. I believe it will be a lot of fun.” So, has he devised any strategy to survive on the show? “I believe in taking life with a pinch of salt and a slice of humour. I guess that’s my strategy,” says Hirjee.
When asked about the reported presence of
animals in the Bigg Boss house, Hirjee says, “I think there are 16 animals in the house and I am one of them. But jokes apart, I love animals. So, I am definitely looking forward to meeting them.”
