Nikki Tamboli shot to fame with her stint in Bigg Boss 14. She was among one of the most entertaining contestants on the show, and her unique and outspoken personality stood out on the show. She has amassed a huge fan following after the reality show, and in a recent interview, she talked about her struggle in the entertainment industry. She revealed that while she did have a tough struggle period, she never faced any casting couch experience.
While speaking to ETimes, Nikki Tamboli said that she too faced failures and rejections, but she never took any other route, and instead she took rejections in a positive stride. When asked if anyone ever made an ‘indecent proposal’ to her, Nikki said, “No, never. I did not face any casting couch. Despite facing rejections, I did not give in or take any other route. I was always open to face rejections. I took it in a positive stride."
Speaking about her initial days of struggle, Nikki said that her mother would give her 50 rupees as pocket money every day, and she would travel by train from Dombivli to Andheri for her auditions. She spoke about facing rejections almost every day for the first two years.
“When I turned 20 I signed my south film and by the time I was 23, I had done three south films. I would go to different production houses everyday for auditions and they would reject me saying you can’t talk, smile, dance, or act,” she said.
