And I am highly grateful.

YOU’VE PICKED UP SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS ALL YOUR LIFE. AND BIGG BOSS SURE WAS ANOTHER BIG WINNER. TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROCESS OF CHOOSING A PROJECT.

You know it’s wonderful to get the love of the audience, because that’s exactly what you are aiming for. But at the same time, when you pick a project your thoughts don’t stray towards the fact that it might not work. Whichever project we take up, we expect it to be the best. The first thing I think of before choosing a project is whether it’ll excite me as a viewer or not. And when I’m convinced I’d love to watch it everyday I sign on the dotted line.
