EXCLUSIVE: Shefali Bagga on life after Bigg Boss 13, bond with Rashami Desai, Shehnaaz Gill, trolling and more
Shefali Bagga became a household name after Bigg Boss 13. Before the show, people knew Shefali as the prim and proper news anchor. But, her stint in BB 13, touched many hearts. They started recognizing Shefali Bagga for her bold, honest and upfront personality. She might have not won the trophy, but definitely made her mark.
After BB 13, Shefali continued entertaining fans with her fun-loving posts on social media. She also made her acting debut with a music video, Bibi Bam Returns. The peppy track is receiving a lot of love from fans. We, at Bollywood Bubble, recently got in touch with Shefali Bagga to know how her life has changed after Bigg Boss 13. We asked her about her bond with BB 13 co-contestants, social media trolling and her future in acting.
“Life has changed a lot after Bigg boss 13. I am still in touch with the ex-contestants as well. I share a good bond with Shehnaaz Gill and a few more like Rashami Desai, Vikas Gupta, Siddharth Dey, Arti Singh. I’m on talking terms with them. Life has changed obviously. Getting so much love from people, people are recognising me, they know my personality in and out. They know how Shefali Bagga is in real life now,” Shefali revealed.
Ask her if she is knee to do another reality show, Shefali says, “I think Bigg Boss is the number one reality show. I don’t think any other reality show I would be doing in near future. Khatron Ke Khiladi interests me, and I like it. But, I’m not fond of the daredevil tasks that one has to perform there.”
Sharing why she moved towards music videos, Shefali said, “From childhood, I wanted to be on television, be out there in front of the camera. So, that’s the reason why I took Entertainment anchoring at first and then news anchoring. And now I’m trying my hands on music videos. I have been a part of Television, so next would be web series and films also hopefully. I am also open to doing daily soaps. I’m open to everything provided the content should be good.”

When asked if social media trolling affects her, Shefali expressed, “This is social media can’t help it, you ignore the troll. I am a person who believes in positive energy so I don’t take trolls or negative comments seriously. I would rather prefer replying to the people who are my fans who are commenting good, rather than responding to trolls and wasting my time.”
Shefali believes in wearing her hearts on her sleeves and does not shy away from keeping her opinions as they are. “I am a very open person and very opinionated. I wear my heart on my sleeves so it’s just that even if the other person disapproves of something I don’t even mind. I’m not there to please anybody. I just like being honest with myself and the people around me and my work. So, I would rather say it and be straightforward instead of cooking up stories or the other way round,” she signed off.
