TV and film actor, Sahil Anand, currently seen in Ekta Kapoor’s reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay, does not have good memories of Bigg Boss. He had a short-lived stint in 2012, entering as a wild card.
“This Colors format is not my cup of tea; I can’t stay there. Being a fun-loving guy was never seen, for only fight and friction parts are telecast.”
Here, he accepts that had he entered at the start, maybe things could have been different. “Entering in the middle of game, I just could not handle the pressure and was out in 12 days flat. Bigg Boss was the worst part of my life, which I would love to erase. I went there for experience and it turned out to be one hell of the same.”
Sahil rejects the notion that he was not fit for the cut and thrust of realty shows. “I was a product of Roadies, and I was noticed a lot in the last season of BCL (MTV), knowing what type of content sells. Having said that, it needs to have much more than just drama.”
Talking about the current season, Sahil says, “The only reason why I follow it a tad is because my best friend, Srishty Rode, is now part of the action. She is a storm that is quiet at the moment, but will explode when the time comes. Do watch out for her.”
Returning back to Kasautii, Sahil says that his comic, henpecked role will have layers. “Ghar jamai, Anupam Sengupta, coming up in life the hard way, will do what it takes to make moolah. You can call him greyish.”
“It feels great to be part of the sequel of an iconic show that my entire family would watch, leaving everything. I sometimes feel sad that some of them are not there anymore. They would have been thrilled to see me in Kasautii.”
“Last, but not the least, I am glad that I could make my TV comeback with Balalji.” He had taken a film sabbatical some time back. “One of my cine projects, Babloo Happy Hai, also co-starred Erica Fernandes.”
