Just when we thought that the ongoing Bigg Boss 14 will soon come to an end after a certainly adventurous run, it appears that the makers are all set to introduce yet another wildcard entries. Actor-turned-politician Sonali Phogat is among one of them. She was recently in the news for thrashing a government official with slippers. In a conversation with HT, Sonali opened up on the kind of struggles she faced after her husband’s demise, her strategies for BB14 and what made her say yes.
Sonali revealed how her in-laws are quite conservative and were against her decision of joining the showbiz. It was, however, her late husband who supported her. Soon after his unfortunate demise, the tables turned and her was mentally tortured and forced to sit at home by her in-laws. She said, “My in-laws allowed me to study further but they did not want me to go out and work. However, I convinced my husband and got his permission. Then, my struggle started because I got into the acting line, and there was no one to help me. I had to make it on my own. Then, I became associated with politics, and my husband supported me here as well.”
The former star added, “But after he died, I saw the reality of people and how they view a woman. If a woman is good-looking and alone, she is not allowed to live. She is mentally tortured and wrong things are said about her. People make all kinds of attempts to force you to sit at home or take advantage of you. After my husband passed away, I faced many such hardships, which have made me stronger.”
Upon being asked about her strategy for the game show, Sonali added, “I will play a very clean game and I will stay within the limits of decency. This is my strategy. I am not planning too much because I can react to the behaviour of other contestants only once I am inside the Bigg Boss house.”
