Bigg Boss 10 is going to witness not one, but four wild card entries tonight. One of them is Sahil Anand. The film and TV actor, as we all know made his big Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year, which also marked the debut of Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. But before SOTY, Sahil was also a contestant on MTV Roadies 4. Yep, the same season which had Bani J as his co-contestant. So with Bigg Boss 10, Sahil is re-uniting with Bani after almost a decade and we are definitely quite excited to see their face-off yet again.
We got in touch with Sahil couple of hours before he entered the Bigg Boss house and in an EXCLUSIVE conversation he talked about his rapport with Bani, his least favourites and a lot more. Excerpts from the interview:
Why not? This is something that you get to experience once in a lifetime. And Bigg Boss being the mother of all reality TV will definitely give a boost to my career. Not just that, it’s a test for me, as I want to know if I can survive inside the house with so many cameras and with people whom I don’t know at all.
You are going to set foot inside the Bigg Boss house in a couple of hours and surely you are excited, but tell me how have the last 24 hours been for you?
I have spent the last 24 hours shopping. Yes, I am highly excited to go in there and see what happens. The situation inside is not how it looks from the outside. It should be fun.
I am sure, you have done your homework really well by watching all the episodes so far…
Definitely. I missed a few episodes, but yes, I have watched all of them who are inside very closely. And it will surely be beneficial for me, not that I can predict my actions, but it will help me to know how do I have to deal with them.

Since you have followed the show diligently, if I ask you to pick your three favourite contestants, who would they be?
Lopamudra (Raut), Bani J and Manu (Punjabi). Hands down.
And your three least favourites?
Nitibha (Kaul), Mona Lisa and Om Swami. Some might find him entertaining, but for me he is the most weird person in that house right now.
You are re-uniting with Bani after almost a decade. You were her co-contestant on MTV Roadies 4. How is your rapport with her?
We were quite friendly on Roadies. But we lost touch as soon as the show got over.
How do you think she will react on seeing you after a very long time?
I am hoping she will be the same with me as she was back then. I know time changes people, so I can’t really say how will she react. Let’s see how it goes.
You are entering the house along with ex-contestant Priyanka Jagga, who is a great fan of yours. Reports suggested that you two know each other from quite sometime…
She was just on Facebook friends list. Yes, I did meet her, but only once when I was in Delhi, where I was promoting one of my films. So we are not best of friends or anything. I have met her once and that’s the end of the story.
What are you trying to achieve with Bigg Boss 10?
Everyone knows me as Jeet from Student Of The Year. So that baggage has to go. I want people to know me as Sahil Anand. So even as I am going there, I am going to show the real me. I can show my acting skills through my films, but on Bigg Boss 10, I don’t have to become anyone else and that’s a good thing.
Which current contestant’s name comes to your mind when I say the following:
Annoying – Om Swami
Sexy – Lopa
Lazy – Rahul Dev
Competition – Manu and Gaurav Chopra
Boring – Nitibha
Manipulative – Manu
Let’s just say you come out as a winner, what are you planning to do with the prize money?
I am associated with a few NGOs, so a part of it will go to charity. The other part will obviously go to my personal bank account (laughs).
