How is home without Deepika?
I am missing her a lot. I feel her absence in every aspect of life. In fact, she has been inside the house for a few days and I am already tensed as to how I will manage three-and-a-half months. Let’s see kaise niklenge ye din.

What do you do when you miss her?
I am watching the show every day. I also visit Voot to watch the unseen footage.

What do you think of her progress in the house?
She is getting better by the day. Now, she looks settled. But before entering the house she told me that if things go downhill in the house, main bathroom mein jaakar ro loongi but sabke saamne nahin.

Buzz was that you were supposed to be part of Bigg Boss 12... 
Yes, initially, the show was offered to both of us. But we both take care of our families and my father keeps unwell. Hence, we came to a conclusion that only one person can go inside. It had to be Dipika because it is the right time for her to explore herself.

Have you followed the previous seasons?
I always wanted to participate in Bigg Boss. I follow the show and have seen almost all seasons. So, in the future if they give me a chance to be a part of it, I will take up. Of course, if my commitments at that point allow me to do so.

What tips did you give to Dipika before she went inside the house?
I just told her to be the way she is. It’s just a game so don’t lose your dignity at any cost. 

In this season who do you think will give tough competition to her?
Honestly, it’s too early to judge and decide. And I don’t think anyone can pull her back as she is strong and deserves to go ahead. I am sure she will win the show. I am waiting for the right moment.

Dipika has been spending a lot of time in the kitchen and many are of the opinion that she is aping Shilpa Shinde...
I don’t think you can compare two people. Every contestant has his/her strategy to get ahead in the game. Dipika is a brilliant cook and loves to do so. In fact, not only cooking, you will get to see her do other tasks such as cleaning the house, washroom and washing clothes.Dipika Kakar In Bigboss House

Her debut Bollywood film, Paltan, just hit theatres. Do you think that with Dipika inside the Bigg Boss 12 house, her future projects are going to affected?
Dipika has always been clear that she wants to do good work. When Bogg Boss 12 came her way, we decided that she should do it.

Anup Jalota and his girlfriend Jasleen Matharu are making headlines for their relationship. Did their equation come as a shock to you?
Not shocking but I was a little surprised. But they have decided to appear in Bigg Boss, I am sure kuch soch samajhkar aaye honge. But with time audience will decide who are real and who are faking it. We can’t judge them so soon.
