Shilpa Shetty, winner of last season's reality series, Big Brother UK, has been roped in to host the Indian version of the show -- Big Boss season 2.
Rajul Hegde caught up with her to know more. Excerpts:
What made you decide to host this show?
The reason I agreed to do Big Boss 2 is because I was familiar with the format. It makes it easier for me to empathise with the housemates. I will be the only connection between them and the outside world. I am sure it is not going to be easy for them and I wish them good luck. I am looking forward to be part of this show.
Do you feel that before entering this show, the contestants should take up some sort of relaxation course to keep their mind fresh and calm?
Firstly, those who actually take part in this show will not have anything to hide. Secondly, they are confident of themselves and want to be famous overnight.
When I joined Big Brother I went with the mindset that I have nothing to fear as this was not my first time before the camera. Despite that, I thought I would be out in the first week. Being in Big Brother teaches you a lot. There are lot of highs and lows. And it's a learning curve and viewers will really know everything about you in this show. That is why reality shows really work on television. It's a great form of entertainment at other people cost.(laughs)
Catch the second season of Big Boss on August 17 every Monday to Sunday at 10 pm on Colors.
