Bigg Boss 12 had a grand launch in Goa last week. For the first time in the history of Bigg Boss, the makers announced its contestant beforehand. Comedienne Bharti Singh will enter the show with husband-writer Haarsh Limbachiyaa. The couple joined Salman on stage and joked that money was a major factor for them saying yes to the controversial reality show.
The Evergreen... Ever graceful mom of Bollywood... You’re one of the sweetest people I have met...— Bharti singh (@bharti_lalli) June 14, 2018
Waiting for #IndiasGotTalent to start again so I can meet you and we can have fun again! Wishing you loads of love and happiness always! Happy birthday @KirronKherBJP ji! pic.twitter.com/zhaEzJU75n
Recently, indianexpress.com caught up with the fun-loving couple to discuss their participation in Bigg Boss. With Bharti hosting the next season of India’s Got Talent (IGT), she was asked about managing both the shows. She answered, “Woh to aap logon ko gumrah karne ke liye tha (That was only to distract the media). Yes, I did few auditions but now Rithvik will get a new co-host. Even I am upset about not doing IGT. I have been the face of the show for four years. But I will be in the Bigg Boss house for three months, so it won’t be possible.”
“Even the makers are in a fix now. I have built a great rapport with the judges (Karan Johar, Malaika Arora and Kirron Kher). So every time they were angry over something, I was sent to calm them down. IGT is my show and I am really upset that I cannot be a part of it. But then participating in Bigg Boss is making me quite excited,” she added.
Bharti also told Indian express, “After a long honeymoon, we flew to Argentina for Khatron Ke Khiladi (KKK) together. And now I think we might just plan our baby on the reality show (laughs). The makers had spoken to me about doing the show at the time of KKK but I said let me come back and then decide. When they told me I will enter with Haarsh, I was happy. He doesn’t have time for me otherwise. Ab kahan jayega bhaag ke (where will he run away now).”
