I have been approached for the last few years.  Firstly, Bigg Boss makes me nervous.  It’s a challenging show and being around cameras for 24 hours along with the judgements happening outside is very very tough.  However, it’s not that I am not up for challenges.  It’s just that things have not worked out in the past for various reasons and if I take on the show, I would want to be prepared with everything to the Tee.  Every year I receive congratulatory messages as the media and everyone is convinced that I am doing the show when I am actually watching it on the outside as an audience.  And trust me the thought of being locked up in the house gives me chills!
