Bigg Boss OTT Contestant Ridhima Pandit: 'My Mom Thought I Wasn't Cut Out For The Show'
The Bahu Hamari Rajnikant actress Ridhima Pandit got the fans all excited as she entered the Bigg Boss house that premiered last Sunday. The effervescent and bubbly actress made quite a stir as she walked the red carpet in a stunning high slit unconventional gown, while host Karan Johar was quick to point out a dialogue from his movie calling her Kabhi poo, kabhi parvati. 

Ridhima's entry in the 15th edition of the hugely successful show came as a surprise to her fans and friends as the actress had quoted in her earlier interviews that she wouldn't sign up for this show. 

Like they say, never say never, Ridhima seemed to take the plunge after all. 

In one of her candid chats before entering the house, Ridhima shared, "Bigg Boss is a life changing opportunity for any actor at any given point in their career. I feel lucky that this was offered to me right from the beginning of my career. I have been a fan of the show and so has my family. They would often joke if I were to participate. I would give out a quick No as it meant cutting off from the outside world, being away from my family, friends, my social life. My mom would always tell me that it wasn't a show meant for me because I'm a sensitive person. She thought I couldn't survive as I'm driven by emotions. But life had other plans. I believe the pandemic, like everything else, changed me in ways more than one. I'm grateful to have work where I can be myself." 

Ridhima lost her mom recently that had left the Pandit family shattered. Ridhima shares, 'Maybe, just maybe things would have been different if my mom were around. I probably wouldn't have given it a thought if the offer came along but I guess I'm ready now mentally. Coping up with mom's loss made me stronger. I believed I was ready for a bigger challenge and now I have her watching over me with her guiding light."
