Shalin Bhanot is one of the surprise contestants on Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 16. Approached for many years now, Shalin believes it is the perfect time for him the join the reality show he views as an ‘adventure.’ The actor spoke to OTTplay about his motive behind joining the show so late and why it is the perfect time for him, among many other things. Excerpts…

Is it your best time to enter Bigg Boss?

Yes, definitely. Everything that I do, it is the best time.

You were reportedly approached for Bigg Boss 13. Did you get to hear about the contestants that made you say no to that season?

No, no. I have been getting the calls for all the seasons since the past couple of years. I never had the chance and guts to say yes. Finally, I took a lot of pluses and made a body so that I’m physically also strong to say yes to Bigg Boss.

Have you followed the show well? Would you say you are prepared for it?

I am going inside a well (laugh). I’m not at all prepared for Bigg Boss. I thought let’s take it up as a challenge. We’ll see what happens. Ek baar mein do do maza aayega – kar bhi lenge aur dekh bhi lenge.

Would you say Bigg Boss has helped people's careers? What do you think it would do to yours?

Pata nahi. Kuch accha hi kare. Hopefully Salman Khan will notice me and offer me his next film. I don’t take Bigg Boss as a career move. I take it as an adventure sport. Something as thrilling as Bigg Boss can never happen to me. It’s very fortunate that I’m getting this chance – to be in the biggest and most dangerous roller-coaster ride of the world.

What do you think about getting into the battlefield with Bigg Boss himself this season?

I really hope and pray that he always loses and doesn’t win at all. Bigg Boss can play – that is okay – but he should win it. How funny it would be that Bigg Boss only wins Bigg Boss 16. Then what are we here for?

Where do you see yourself after the show ends?

I see myself in all the restaurants possible, eating all different cuisines. I will be very depressed not having any food of my choice – no muffins, ice creams, Chinese or Thai food. So, I will be seeing myself in restaurants.
