Actor Sahil Anand says filmmaker Karan Johar wished him luck for his stint in the controversial reality show Bigg Boss.
Anand played Varun Dhawan’s friend in the 2012 film Student of the Year, which also starred Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra.
“After Student of the Year my life has changed completely. I have been working continuously and I am very happy. Before coming to Bigg Boss, I personally sent a message to Karan Johar and told him that I am going on Bigg Boss show and I need your support. He wished me [luck] back,” he said.
Anand is one of the wild card contestants on the tenth season of Bigg Boss.
“I think I have an edge [over other contestants] as I know how they [contestants] are playing [in the show]. But then being a wild card I also have a disadvantage that I will be the soft target as I came late in the show. I would appreciate if the contestants on the show speak truth before evicting me,” he said.
According to the 29-year-old actor, model Lopamudra Raut is doing well on the show; she is being straightforward and stands up for people.
Anand says he will consider his moves before reacting on the show. “Being a Punjabi when I was young I was very hyper, it was in my blood. But when I came to Mumbai I changed a lot and I became calm. I am good to people who are good to me and I am bad to those who are bad to me. I don’t know when this sher [lion] side of me will wake up,” he added.
