Shehnaaz Gill is one of the most-loved contestants of Bigg Boss. The Punjabi Kudi captured millions of hearts with her stint in the previous season. While rumours of Shehnaaz entering the Bigg Boss 14 house have been abuzz, there has been no confirmation yet. However, recently, Shehnaaz got into a candid chat with the Times of India where she spoke about BB 14’s format, the contestants (freshers), and the inclusion of seniors – Hina Khan, Gauahar Khan, and Sidharth Shukla.
The Bigg Boss 13 finalist revealed that she is following the season 14, and feels that rue colours of the inmates will be revealed gradually. She said that no matter how hard anyone tries to act sweet and nice, the concept of Bigg Boss is such that it will bring out the person’s real personality. According to Shehnaaz, Bigg Boss tests a person’s ability and patience. However, she does not seem happy with the contestants of Bigg Boss 14.
‘The current contestants seem to be confused about what they have to do inside the house. They don’t have a point of view and are too reliant on the seniors,’ opined Shehnaaz. Further, she added that presence of seniors helps to establish an immediate connection with the viewers, but the drawback is that the freshers are not playing their own game. ‘Competition nahi hai,’ said Shehnaaz.
Going back in time, Shehnaaz spoke about how Bigg Boss 13 was different and entertaining, as every contestant tried to establish themselves. ‘Hamaare season mein pehle week se lekar end tak jo bhi raha hai, sab apna best dekar gaye hain. (In our season, every contestant who was there from the beginning till the end, were giving their best). However, Shehnaaz stated that she does not see that drive in Bigg Boss 14 contestants. ‘Kuchh karna hi nahi chahte just because seniors hain. (They don’t want to do anything, just because seniors are present). In fact, they are being remote controlled by the seniors,’ Shenaaz expressed.
When pointed out that many viewers feel Sidharth is again the highlight of the show, Shehnaaz responded saying that the makers must have got the seniors on board for a reason. ‘Sidharth Shukla is the TRP king. Show thoda chal raha hai usko daalne se. (BB 14 is working a little because of Sid). I am sure many people watch it because of him, shared Shehnaaz. However, that being said, Shehnaaz also said that it is a double-edged sword, and the freshers have not been able to make their place in the BB 14 house yet.
Expressing her opinion Shehnaaz said that the freshers are adamant that they will begin their game, only when the seniors leave. However, she said that if she was a part of BB 14 as a fresher, she wouldn’t follow a senior blindly, as she has her own mind to play the game. Giving some tips to BB 14 freshers Shehnaaz said, ‘Khud ka vajood rakho, lado, bhido ek dum sher ki tarah. Kisi ke aage peeche poonch ban kar mat raho. Apna game khelo without being selfish. Apna stand toh har koi le leta hai, but doosro ka stand lena seekho.’
