Being the shortest contestant in the history of Bigg Boss, Jyoti Amge adds new dimensions to the proceedings in the house.

Measuring 62.8 cm (2 ft), the 19-year-old holds the Guinness Record for being the shortest woman in the world.

Not letting her size affect her dreams, Jyoti wants to make it big in the entertainment industry. She says, “I am not sad and don’t have any issues about being short. I am famous because of it and even got two Guinness Records.”

Talking about the reactions she gets for her height, Jyoti says, “People talk, but I don’t pay attention. How does it matter? I focus on my work. Some people put me down, but there are others who support me too.” 

Jyoti has appeared in a video in singer Mika Singh’s album Risky and was on Shekhar Suman’s show, Movers & Shakers. She says, “I have hosted the Guinness Book of World Record show in Italy. I am also called for their shows all over the world.”

A huge fan of Salman Khan, she wants to do a movie with the host of Bigg Boss.

In tonight’s episode, after Imam Siddiqui’s exit, Jyoti will join Aashka Goradia and Dinesh Nirahua in the mud house. “I have been watching the show and don’t think I will face any problems because of my height. I know I will be provided with amenities that suit me.”
