You may wonder why she went into the house in the first place, but Sonika Kaliraman Malik, has only now realised that the Bigg Boss house is no place for an expecting mother.
The 28-year-old wrestler, who is six months pregnant, opted out of the reality TV show on Monday night. “Uss ghar ka mahaul kabhi kabhi frustrating ho jaata tha. There were fights and a lot of tension. So, the hosts gave me the option to leave — keeping in mind the baby’s well-being. Frankly, I am thankful they did so,” she says.
Ask her why she took on the show at all, and she explains that it never occured to her that the atmosphere on the show would be so stressful. “I took it up as I wanted to show that there is nothing pregnant women can’t do.”
On the show, there are sudden sounds and loud announcements and Sonika says these terrified her . “People were very nice to me, but the sudden honking sounds scared me. And, I took too much stress every time some contestants fought or went to jail,” she says, adding that the hormonal changes in her body made things more difficult. “There was a lot of bitching and fights and they were only escalating. My priority right now is my baby so I decided to opt out,” she says.
