Divya Agarwal, known as a reality TV star, will once again participate in a reality show. This time, it's Bigg Boss OTT. The actor, in a candid chat with SpotboyE, opened up about how she is going to deal with the controversies that may happen inside the house.
Q: Your name has been in contention for the last two seasons. What made you say yes to the show this time?
A: Yes, I wasn’t sure about being a part of the show earlier. I wasn’t sure if I was willing to take this up. Nevertheless, I am all buckled up for this year, and this year I have evolved into a headstrong person. I believe now I am set mentally and emotionally to take this up and nothing can stop me now.
Q: The show is known for its controversies and Karan Johar's latest promo suggests that things this time will be over the top. Is that part making you feel nervous?
A: I was very well aware of Bigg Boss and the controversies that follow. And I believe there’s a controversy in each and everyone’s life, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, I found the promo very exciting and it didn’t get me nervous as I am prepared for what’s coming.
Q: Since you have won Ace Of Space, adjusting in the house with so many people will not be a problem. Or will it?
A: In Ace Of Space, the battle was quite tough as surviving in such a small space with people you’ve just met is very tough. Luckily, I was surrounded by people I love. But I believe Bigg Boss will be quite fun and I will try to keep toxic people as far away as I can and give my best shot especially in tasks.
Q: How are you planning to keep yourself calm in the chaos?
A: I plan to be myself. I feel that if things are sorted in my head, I will be able to be in control and stay calm. But yes, if someone tries to bother me I will give it back - probably 10 times more. Over the years, I have learned that you shouldn’t take anybody’s unnecessary nonsense and I don’t like taking tension rather will give tension to the ones troubling me.
Q: Contestants often bring out your personal life in fights. How will you deal with it if somebody does it to you?
A: I used to keep my personal life very secretive. I was a bit hesitant to share my personal life earlier but now as people change they evolve and so have I, and hence, I am an open book. I am very transparent and outspoken. I believe nothing can bother me and if something does then I know how to give it back. I know balancing my personal life and professional life and will bring my game in a show.
Q: What will be Divya's mantra to survive the longest in the game?
A: My mantra will be consistency, and being the person I am. Giving my 100% to win. Gaining the experience over the past years I have learned how to handle people, a house in general so I think that’s what you need. As this show is a personality-based show, I believe I too perfectly fit in for it. And this is going to be my mantra showcasing my personality and shining the brightest.
Q: I am sure you must have come across a few names who also are going to be on Bigg Boss with you. Who do you feel will become your or you will easily gel with and why?
A: I have been hearing whispers here and there. I ain’t sure though but the only person I know who is my friend is Milind Gaba. I have known him before and I don’t think there'd be any problem with Milind but I would love to make some good friends inside the house too.
