Bigg Boss OTT finalist Pratik Sehajpal is excited to entertain the audience on Bigg Boss 15 now. During the grand finale of the Karan Johar-hosted show, he quit at the last minute to get a direct ticket to Bigg Boss 15. In an exclusive conversation with IndiaToday.in, Pratik Sehajpal talks about his decision to enter BB 15, his strategies for the game and about meeting host Salman Khan.
Pratik Sehajpal was the first confirmed contestant of Bigg Boss 15. Speaking about being on BB 15, he said, “I have wanted to be a part of the Colors’ Bigg Boss since a long time. It has been my dream to be next to Salman Khan. When that opportunity came to me, I was certain that this is what I wanted to do. I didn’t think twice before picking the suitcase.”
Being on Bigg Boss OTT, Pratik doesn’t feel that he has a kind of advantage over other contestants. He said, “It will be a totally different situation, there will be different people and new strategies. The only advantage I have is that I am not scared of anyone. I am fearless. I don’t think twice before putting out my opinion.” However, he is not making any strategies to survive in the house. He said, “I don’t have any strategy for the game because in that environment, nothing works at all. Even if you plan something beforehand, it will fail.”
During the BB OTT premiere, Pratik was the only contestant who trended on Twitter because of his outbursts. So will we see him making the same kind of noise on BB 15 as well? “On Bigg Boss 15, I will do anything that I will be required to do – be it screaming or fighting with anyone. If I am required to make noise, I will do that. I am just not scared of anyone. No one can do anything to me. I believe in myself and I always stand up for the right thing,” the actor said. He added that he is not preparing himself ahead of entering the show as he wants to be ‘natural and real’.
After Sunday Ka Vaars with Karan Johar, Pratik Sehajpal is excited for Weekend Ka Vaars with host Salman Khan. He said, “Karan Johar is a great personality and everyone wishes to work with him. All the artists from the entertainment industry wish to meet him at least once. He is very talented. As for Salman Khan, it had been my dream to meet him and today, it is getting fulfilled. It is a dream come true for me. I don’t know how I will react. I just know that this is something I have always wished for so I am very proud of myself.”
This year, the theme of Bigg Boss 15 is Jungle Mein Dungle and contestants will have to fight for basic facilities to win the game. Pratik said, “I have my eyes on the trophy and that’s all that matters. I don’t want anything else. I don’t care if I don’t get facilities in the house .”
Talking about how he will deal with his co-contestants from BB OTT on the TV reality show, Pratik Sehajpal said, “I will see how I’ll deal with them. I am not sure what kind of an equation I will have with them inside the BB 15 house because I have had both friendships and enmities. However, I don’t know what is in someone’s heart. I will get to see it sooner or later.”
Bigg Boss OTT premiered on October 2.
