Bollywood actor Rimi Sen has revealed in an interview that she did ‘Bigg Boss 9’ for the ‘money’. In 2015, she participated in the reality television show Bigg Boss Season 9. She remained in the house for close to two months but was eventually voted out.
Rimi told SpotboyE, “We do few things for fame and some for money. So, I did ‘Bigg Boss’ only for money. They paid me around 2.25 crore for 49 days and nobody can earn this much money in such a short time. Most of the time people fail to understand the actual concept of ‘Bigg Boss’. The show is not about fighting and getting highlighted or giving content. This show is about getting your hidden personality out.”
“Most of the time people fail to understand the actual concept of Bigg Boss. The show is not about fighting and getting highlighted or giving content. This show is about getting your hidden personality out. Har kisi ke andar ek kharab shaks chhupa hua hai so usko bahar lakar vo dikhate hain ki (Everyone has a negative side to their personality, and the show brings that side out) he or she is the real person. And I found the concept very interesting when it got offered to me. They purposely create tasks in a way that your worst side comes out in public and that is something you have to have a hold on yourself”, Rimi said.
Rimi said that she stayed true to herself on the show. “I knew that I have come for money and I have to behave good and go out with a good image which I did. I was quite successful in doing that,” she said.
The 39-year-old actor was last seen in the 2011 films ‘Thank You’ and ‘Shagird’.
