Bigg Boss 15 contestant Shamita Shetty will be entering the show, once again after her stint on Bigg Boss OTT. The actress will be making a smashing entry on the show. Ahead of the grand premiere, the actress even shared a picture of her, all dressed up for the show. In an exclusive with us, Shamita Shetty opened up about her Bigg Boss 15 participation. She revealed why she is participating on Bigg Boss once again, after her BB OTT stint.

Talking about taking on Bigg boss OTT, Shamita Shetty explained how she is getting paid to sit in a house. She said, “At the end of the day, it is work for me also. I am also sitting at home because of the pandemic. I have lost out on a lot of shows, lots of events. Work has been very very slow since two years. I also have to make a living.

Shamita added, “I may be Shamita Shetty to the world, whatever that means, but I also have to make a living. I take care of my bills. So, contrary to some people’s beliefs, I am not the sort of person who’s fine sitting at home doing nothing. I need to work. That’s me as a person.

The actress continued, “And also, Bigg Boss came to me, it came to me before everything happened with my family. I know the reach of the show. A lot of people watch it. It’s got a great fan following. And like I said, I was getting paid to sit in the house.”

She added, “For me, I take it as an experience. Whatever is said and done, you go into that show, you come out a stronger person. And I experienced it the first time around. So, that’s it. That’s one of the reasons I said Yes to do the show. And of course, I was getting paid well, so why would I not be a part of it.”

Shamita Shetty also spoke about her family problems, battling anxiety, her sister, actress Shilpa Shetty and Bigg Boss OTT co-contestant Divya Agarwal.
