Here are some excerpts from the conversation
How did Bigg Boss Marathi 2 happen?
I was really happy when I received the call from the team. This is the first time a Lavni dancer is on the show and I am quite excited about that. We are deep rooted artists and getting such a big platform feels really special.
Any strategies that you have planned for your survival?
I am an entertainer and I will definitely do the same through my stay in the house. I have been also told that people fight a lot and I don’t mind doing that. If someone tries to ruffle feathers, I won’t take it lightly.
Has your family given you any special advice?
Everyone was very happy about my participation. They were confident that I will do well and asked me to play the game smartly. I will take each day as it comes and enjoy my stay in the house.
Mahesh Manjrekar is known to be a strict taskmaster. Are you excited or nervous about interacting with me?
We have been part of numerous events together but I have never met him personally. I am really excited to meet him as he is a great actor and has such a warm personality.
