It’s a wrong belief that you can win Bigg Boss by being only in the kitchen: Shilpa Shinde

Shilpa Shinde, who will soon enter Bigg Boss 12 as a guest contestant, is quite excited to go back to the show.

“I am really excited. It’s a different feeling altogether. I am sure it will be more fun this time as there won’t be the pressure of competition. But you don’t really know much about what’s going to happen. Once the door of the Bigg Boss house closes, everything just happens by itself. You can’t put logic and planning,” Shilpa shared in an exclusive chat with


The Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain actor further spoke about the current season. “I have been following it thoroughly. And while people might say it’s boring, I am enjoying it. I keep recalling my time in the house. I would like to say that though it’s wrong to compare both seasons, even I end up relating the contestants. But it’s a very different lot. We were more real I feel. I must tell fans that enjoy it as a new season and don’t compare,” she said.

Shilpa further added, “The celebs in the house are still trying to get a hold of themselves. Maybe they are worried about their image. The cameras do make people conscious but then no one is perfect. And we shouldn’t hide our flaws. This is why I like Sreesanth as he is quite real. He doesn’t worry about what people might be thinking. He is clean from the heart but he loses his temper really easily. And in a bid to hurt others, he ends up saying things he would not otherwise. But I am sure he doesn’t mean it. It’s a way to vent out his emotions.”

Shilpa Shinde was known for ruling the kitchen, which got her both acclaim and brickbats from the audience and housemates. With Dipika Kakar and Megha Dhade already fighting over kitchen duties in the Bigg Boss 12 house, Shilpa had a word of advice for the contestants. “One has to present all their sides in the show to be able to connect with the audience. Just being the kitchen queen will not help you win the trophy. After my season, people felt it was an easy way but it would be hard if you chose that path,” she concluded.

Shilpa will be joined by her arch-nemesis Vikas Gupta in her short stint on Bigg Boss 12.
