She has been a part of several reality shows in the past but TV actress Mahi Vij says she cannot see herself taking part in “Bigg Boss” as it would require her to be cut off from her family.
Mahi, best known for playing the role of Nakusha in “Laagi Tujhse Lagan”, tried her luck in reality show like “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and “Nach Baliye”.
“I love to watch Bigg Boss. It’s my favourite show but I can’t be a part of it. I can’t leave my family, I can’t do without talking to them. It will be quite challenging for me,” Mahi told PTI.
The actress, who last featured on the seventh season of “Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi” with husband Jay Bhanushali, will be next seen in “Balika Vadhu... Lamhe Pyaar Ke”.
Mahi says she took time to do a fiction show after her popular TV series “Laagi Tujhse Lagan” ended in 2012.
“I couldn’t get anything which would get me out of my comfort zone. I was very comfortable at home. But this show did pull me out of it. I did Fear Factor because it was for a short span. I was travelling with my husband for the show, so it was good thing,” she said.
“But doing a fiction show is definitely a little pressure, as a wife and not as an actress. Because there is a system at home, so accordingly everything happens. But now even that is getting sorted out. Jay is doing half of the things and I do the other,” she added.
“Balika Vadhu...Lamhe Pyaar Ke” will be new a chapter to the popular TV series and will chronicle the journey of Anandi’s daughter, Nandini (played by Mahi) who is a doctor.
The actress is aware that it will be a challenge to retain the loyal audience of the show without the flagship character of Anandi, but is confident the show will touch new heights.
“Yes, obviously it will be a challenge because the audience has been used to watching the character which has become iconic. To make sure the audience who loved it doesn’t go anywhere else will be a challenge. But I hope the love they gave to Anandi for so many years, I get it too.”
“Balika Vadhu... Lamhe Pyaar Ke” also stars Ruslaan Mumtaz and Avinash Sachdev.
The show will premiere of April 25 on Colors.
