She is known for her ‘devil-may-care’ attitude and is not one to mince words, but reality show star Sambhavna Seth wonders whether being more manipulative would have helped her showbiz career. “I sometimes regret being so straightforward and non-manipulative. If I knew how to be sweet to people and sugarcoat my words, then maybe I would have been more likeable,” says Sambhavna.
The star, who is considered the next favourite drama queen on the small screen after Rakhi Sawant, is a known face in Bhojpuri cinema and shot to fame in Bollywood with the reality show Bigg Boss 2. “I have done 60 films in the language and was called the Helen of Bhojpuri films. The fame got me entry into the house of Bigg Boss,” said Sambhavna. The actress will be next seen donning the hat of a village belle in upcoming reality show Desi Girl on Imagine TV. The show has a total of eight Mumbai-bred television and film stars living in a Punjab village. Braving the heat without air conditioners or fridges. Sambhavna also has to do daily chores like milking the cows and making dung cakes.
Sambhavna was also seen making guest appearances in Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega, the show where Rahul Mahajan chose a bride for himself. And Sambhavna doesn’t mind doing a Sawaymvar (Indian practice of choosing a life partner) of her own either. “I will get married, if I get a good guy. I can also conduct a Swayamvar of my own,” she says. Sambhavna is not afraid of being typecast as a reality show star as she admits that the fame she is enjoying now is all due to shows like Bigg Boss. “I have struggled a lot to establish myself. I am surviving because of these reality shows, they have given me a place in this industry. It doesn’t matter if people attach the reality show tag,” says she.
