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!
