He said ahead of entering Bigg Boss 17, “I am excited because it’s my first time (being on a show like this). So many things are so interesting.” He is also fascinated by the fact that he will be living with strangers and will be ‘living together, cleaning together and cooking together... I want to make new friends and I enjoy together. Cultural differences doesn’t matter because there will be new experiences. It will be a learning experience.”
