She may have charged Rs 2.5 crore for a mere three day stint in the reality TV show Bigg Boss, but, right before entering the show, actor Pamela Anderson stunned many by saying that she is not a fan of reality TV shows. The Hollywood star, who entered the show as a celebrity guest in an episode that aired last night, is also clueless about its celebrity host — actor Salman Khan.
"I am not a fan of reality shows. I love traditional shows like Baywatch," she said before entering the Bigg Boss house at Lonavala, 125 kms from Mumbai. The 43-year-old actor, who shot to fame as CJ Parker on popular TV series Baywatch, added, "I have heard about Salman through media. I have seen a few Bollywood films, but I don’t remember any of the actors by their name. Maybe, if I see him (Salman) I will be able to recognise him," she said.
Anderson claims to have been offered several Bollywood films and reality shows. The only reason she didn’t take them up was her kids. "They’re growing up and I need to be around them. Bollywood is funny, colourful with a lot of song and dance, exactly what I’d love to do in a movie. If someone really wants, they can shoot in Malibu (California) and I promise I’ll be in that movie."
While she is hardly shy of baring all in front of the camera, Pam wore a white sequined sari, though with a sensuous blouse; bangles and a bindi as she entered the house. Anderson has not heard about her co-contestants and has been given a write up on them. "I am going unscripted on the show," she said, adding that she is ready to do household chores. "I like doing household work. I do it at my place."
Is there any message she wants to send out? "Save water. Clean water is a problem," she says.
