Bigg Boss Season 13: Koena Mitra Reveals Why She Said Yes to Being a Contestant
Bigg Boss Season 13 premiered yesterday. Hosted by Salman Khan, it has 13 celebrities, including Koena Mitra, locked together in a house for 105 days
Koena Mitra is one of thirteen celebrities who have been locked together in a house as contestants for Bigg Boss Season 13. The Bollywood actress, famous for appearance in the song Saki Saki, has spoken about her expectations from being on this controversial reality show, which is hoted by Salman Khan. In an interview Indian Express, the actress revealed how she had no clue about what would happen once the show started. Saying that a love for adventures had prompted her to join the show, Koena said,
“For the last 15 years, I have been staying alone in Mumbai, while my family is back in Kolkata. I run the show at home and am not used to taking orders. So this is going to be a new experience for me. Also, there’s solid fanbase in villages and districts. They might not go to theatres to watch a film but they are addicted to television. And Bigg Boss is one of the most popular shows. My cousins and friends are thrilled that I am participating in this show.”
She further added how she had never planned anything in her life and how she always faced challenges on her own, without even involving her family.
“Be it my achievements or failures, I have seen it all alone. I also don’t believe in teamwork. This I am doing purely for the experience, and once it’s done, I honestly don’t know what I will do. There is really no plan,” she said. Bigg Boss is popular among audiences because of the fights and controversies which contestants engage in on air while living together. Apart from Koena Mitra, Sidharth Shukla, Abu Malik, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Rashami Desai, Mahira Sharma, Shefali Bagga, Asim Riaz, Siddhartha Dey, Shehnaaz Gill, Paras Chhabra and Arti Singh are also participating as contestants on Bigg Boss 13.
