Even as international supermodel and fitness coach, Jason Shah, who is one of the wildcard entrants to Bigg Boss this weekend, says that he is not prepared, he will certainly attempt at capturing the female contestants’ attention as he’s heard saying in the promo — "There are so many beautiful girls [Lopamudra Raut, VJ Bani, Mona Lisa and Nitibha Kaul] in the house but there is not a single man to appreciate their beauty. I am coming."
The British model’s deep voice and chiselled physique may perhaps do the trick. He could be a total delight for all the female contestants — Jason is already making headlines for his nude photo shoots. If one wonders how well he will play the game inside the house as communicating with the contestants may become a problem and speaking Hindi is a must, Jason has spruced up his Hindi and insists upon speaking only in Hindi even if you talk to him in English. "I learnt Hindi when I was around 12. There were many house helps and my dad’s office staff with whom I would speak only in Hindi,” says Jason, who was recently seen in Katrina Kaif-Aditya Roy Kapur-starrer, Fitoor.
"I am a bit nervous; there are butterflies in my stomach. But I am also excited as it will be quite challenging to be in a house full of strangers. Secondly, there is no outside influence with absolutely no communication system," says Jason, just few minutes before entering the Bigg Boss house in Lonavla. He further says, “I have a girlfriend and she’s still in a state of shock because we won’t be meeting or talking for several days which is the only sad part. But it’s okay, something nice is going to happen and hence she didn’t stop me from going in.”
Jason has seen a few episodes of Bigg Boss and he is quite fond of Bani and Manu. “Both are playing well. They stand by what they believe; they are opinionated and they are all over the place which is necessary. Whereas, Rahul Dev is quite boring,” laughs Jason, who feels that there is lot of negativity in the house and aims at bringing happiness.
While Jason hasn’t thought of any clear-cut strategy of playing the game, he has decided not to be part of any one team or group. “I will be who I am, let’s see how long I last inside the house. So far no wildcard contestant has ever won the game but I can try. I am entering the house not for money but for the big platform it offers. It is going to be a very tough competition for me because the contestants inside already have a fan following and changing the decision of fans, followers and audience is not so easy,” concludes Jason.
Well, we don’t know yet if getting audience support will be tough for Jason or not, but the young model will certainly give tough completion to male celebrities like Rahul, Gaurav and Rohan, who until now have bagged the title of hottest contestants in the house.
One strong friendship that is already shaky and going through a test is between VJ Bani and Gaurav, who keeps telling Bani to be less aggressive. Bani, who has so far been friends only with Gaurav in the house, in turn feels that she is misunderstood. As it is, Gaurav must have not liked former contestants, Gautam Gulati and Mandana Karimi lauding Bani for speaking her mind and calling him, boring. And now, with the entry of another wild card — Sahil Anand, who is known to Bani, equations between Gaurav and Bani is most likely to change in a big way. Film and television actor, Sahil’s claim to fame is Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, in which he played the role of Varun Dhawan’s friend, Jeet Khurana. Then he went on to bag the lead role in Babloo Happy Hai. He also participated in MTV Roadies (Season 4) and was also seen in popular TV soaps Ek Nayi Umeed- Roshni and Rang Badalti Odhani.
When asked who’s playing the game well, Sahil promptly takes Bani’s name. "Bani and Lopa take some stand, they don’t do nonsensical stuff. Manu is good at times but he can also be a complete zero. Gaurav is smart. I am confused with Om Swami. He is rude but at times I feel bad for him and I wonder why is everybody behaving badly with him,” says Sahil, who aims to balance out things in the house.
However, unlike Jason, Sahil is not worried about being totally disconnected with the outside world. “It is okay with me because I am used to it. I have been part of many reality shows in the past where cell phones were not allowed. It does become a problem because family is my weakness but it’s a small sacrifice,” signs off Sahil.
