Well, I knew hosting would be coming my way but not this soon. It was very unplanned.”
Looking back at her Bigg Boss journey, in an interview, she said,
If ever I go to the BB house again, I would like to be more active and focused on entertaining the viewers.”
Back then, I was on a different tangent. I was still trying to cope up with a breakup and had no clue where I was and what I was doing. I didn’t know who’s what, too. Neither was I in the space to give anyone that scope to get close nor take any chances. But now, I’ve been working here for quite some time and I will know what is what. I will try to be the chatterbox that I am (laughs). Basically, try not to get into that emotional zone and be at my entertaining best.. if at all I’d go to Bigg Boss (laughs).”
