Neha Bhasin was the first contestant to be confirmed for the online reality show, Big Boss OTT. She is already a famous singer known for hits like Chashni reprise version, Heeriye and Swag Se Swagat, Laung Gawacha, Dhunki and Jag Ghoomeya. But her days in B-Town were not smooth as people think.
In an interview with ZoomTV, she recalled incidents where she was criticised for her body shape. Her words were, “Of course, my stomach was circled on the television in a meeting and I was told that this video is not being released because I am fat. And this was when I was like 49 kg…When I left home, I was a very normal kid with no insecurities or issues, but that was just the beginning. There are a million instances and I can write a book on that.”
She gave a piece of advice to the youngsters to dream of coming to Mumbai saying, “Today, I am a grown-up but there are 18-19 year-olds who come here, sapne leke aate hai ki sab acha hoga (they come with the perception that everything will be fine). They should know good things will happen but bad things will happen too. I am not saying that the world is all bad but sometimes, you have to go through it all.”
Big Boss OTT will go live from 8 August and Student of the Year director, Karan Johar will be hosting the show. Even he is super excited for the show as it was her mother’s dream to see him hosting the show someday.
