TellyChakkar got in touch with the actor and asked him if he did Bigg Boss Season 16 because of Priyanka Chahar Choudhary and whether he had any regret in doing Bigg Boss Season 16.

When the news of you doing Bigg Boss was out everyone was saying that you weren’t apt for the show and then you said you did the show only for Priyanka which is why fans thought that your game didn’t pump up?  

To be honest, when we were entering the show Priyanka and I were not talking to each other as they were phases where we had fights and wouldn’t speak to each other. The best thing was that whatever fight we had in our personal life didn’t affect our professional life and we used to shoot the scene without any problem.

What kind of fights did you and Priyanka have?

About many things. I feel we are just getting matured. We had just become friends and were getting to know each other and hence fights used to happen. We both were like okay now a fight had happened so let’s give space.

Did you know that Priyanka was entering the show?

To be honest we weren’t talking when I was entering the Bigg Boss house. I didn’t even know that she was entering the show. My confirmation happened only at the last moment and it was like if Bigg Boss was beginning tomorrow, my confirmation happened the day before at midnight at 1 : 30 am and I didn’t know anything. I didn’t have any clothes, no preparation at all, nothing. It wasn’t like I went inside to support Priyanka.

When I entered the house I got the vibe that the game is not meant for me and I can’t keep fighting or shouting, but inside the house when Priyanka and I spent so much time together our bond became even better. I knew she had the potential to win and hence I supported her.

Somewhere you were picked up by Bigg Boss and Salman Khan for your game. Do you regret doing Bigg Boss Season 16?

I feel blessed, happy and grateful that I did Bigg Boss as my life has changed completely. First people knew me as an actor and for the characters I played. They did not know how I am in real life and through this show they got to know and still they are connected so it’s a wonderful thing and it’s a blessing that Bigg Boss happened to me.

Well, there is no doubt that Ankit and Priyanka were loved in the Bigg Boss house and their fan following doubled to another level.
