Shweta Tiwari not a fan of Bigg Boss

Highlight Story

TV actress Shweta Tiwari, who won the last season of Bigg Boss, is not a fan of the popular reality show as she finds hardly anything interesting in it. In fact, she says she has never really watched any episode of the show since only 'hatred' is shown to viewers while the 'fun-element' is edited.

"I have never watched any season of Bigg Boss because I don't find it interesting. I went into the house because the money they offered me was huge and there was no way I could say no to it. While I was there in the house, we used to play kho-kho every evening and had lots of fun but all they showed was fights and hatred," Shweta told PTI.

"Though Dolly Bindra was abusive but like everyone else, she had positive points too, but nobody was interested in that. Veena Malik used to recite to us verses from the Quran, she even learnt to chant the Gayatri mantra, but all this was never shown," she said.

Meanwhile, talking about her career and future plans, the actor says that she is open to any role that is exciting.

"I am not obsessed about doing films. I will not sit at home hoping for a film to come my way. Also, it is not like I am choosy about doing films. I don't ask which banner is making the film. What I look for is that the role should excite me. I don't want to be there just looking pretty and doing nothing," she said.

Shweta feels women get to dominate the small screen. "I feel women are ruling the small screen while men rule the big screen. As most TV shows are women-centric, actresses get to perform strong women characters on small screen. Also, because there are more women who comprise the audience base for television shows...they sympathise, relate to the protagonists in daily soaps," she said.
