Last year, due to some issues, I couldn’t be a part of the show. If and when you get nominated, why should the audience vote for you? You don’t even know which song will wake you up to in the house, so how do you even plan (laughs). I think until and unless you meet these people, and get to live for a few days, no plans and strategies will work. Your bold fashion also turns heads. The format, objective and tasks are very different, so there is no comparison. I really wanted to do it this time. What kind of Pavitra will we see in this show? What was about this season that you finally said yes? I also laugh a lot, and I hope I can make others laugh too. If not beat the last season, we will surely reach that level. I plan to make style statements on the show. I was very much me when I started my journey with Splitsvilla, and I think I am still the same. And I will not care who is in front of me or whether he is a boy or girl. This is totally different from Splitsvilla. Yes, there is pressure, but I don’t think it’s only on the contestants. I am bebaak, and I hope that connects with the audience. Since you have already been part of a reality show, do you think that experience will work for you? The last season definitely set a huge benchmark. I think Bigg Boss is a platform which gives equal opportunity to all the contestants. This season everything just worked out well, so there was no reason to not do it. However, I don’t think I ever started those ugly fights. From standing against Nikki Tamobli’s unreasonable demands, flirting with ‘Toofani Senior’ Sidharth Shukla in the task, to getting into a war of words with friend-turned-foe Rahul Vaidya, she has made her presence felt in the last few episodes. You will see the bold me, who is fearless and stands for the truth. You were quite a cracker in Splitsvilla. We will try our best to create the same dhamaal and dhamaka. 📣 The Indian Express is now on Telegram. There will definitely be comparisons when it comes to your journeys. Bold and beautiful – that will be Pavitra for you all. Any strategy that you have planned? Do you think the success of Bigg Boss 13 will lead to pressure on you guys? Also, I think through the show, people will get to see my fun side. It will all happen once I am on the show. Will you try to avoid that? Also, in Splitsvilla, you were criticised by co-contestants for abusing during fights. Excerpts from the conversation:https://images.indianexpress.com/2020/08/1×1.png
There is buzz every year about you doing Bigg Boss. I will try and control it. I don’t think your past laurels play any hand when it comes to votes in this show. Let’s see what happens. We have no comparisons, and I don’t even want my journey to be connected with him. In an exclusive conversation with indianexpress.com before stepping into the show, Pavitra Punia spoke about her bold image, strategies and putting her best fashion foot forward in Bigg Boss 14.

Bigg Boss 14
Pavitra Punia The same as I am in real life. Each one will get the same chance to build their own fan base. What’s the plan for the show? Last season, your ex-boyfriend Paras Chhabra was also on the show. The actor, who is known for playing negative roles in shows like Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Baal Veer, among others, is one of the contestants in the Colors’ reality show. I really don’t want to talk about him and waste my time. Honestly no, I am quite blank at the moment. As a support to Make in India, I am carrying a lot of handloom and also very interesting jewellery pieces. The makers and creative teams will also want to do something different and more entertaining. While in the first two days, Punia kept a low profile, she is finally showing her different avatars.

Pavitra Punia has taken a break from her show Baal Veer to participate in Bigg Boss 14. If they understand me, and feel that my actions and words are honest, they should vote for me. I have packed four huge suitcases of clothes. I will never abuse someone first, but if they do, then I will not hold myself back. I love pulling pranks on others, and spreading smiles everywhere I go. I am a strong-headed person, and believe in standing for what is right, even if it means going against my own people. (Photo: PR Handout)“I will surely try to kill it in the Bigg Boss 14 house,” shared Pavitra Punia before entering the Salman Khan-hosted show. Apart from Pavitra Punia, Bigg Boss 14 also has Rubina Dilaik, Sara Gurpal, Jaan Kumar Sanu, Nishant Singh Malkhani, Eijaz Khan, Nikki Tamboli, Abhinav Shukla, Rahul Vaidya, Jasmin Bhasin and Shehzad Deol as contestants. I had to literally sit on them to zip it.
