Sapna Choudhary who is a well-known name in Haryana became a household name with her stint in Bigg Boss. Post Bigg Boss, Sapna has been trying her hand in the Hindi entertainment industry. Talking about it in an interview with BT, she says that she is still struggling in the industry.
She says, “I will complete 15 years in the industry this year. I want to act in a Hindi film or TV show, but I feel since I am from the regional entertainment industry (Haryana), I don’t get the opportunities to showcase my talent. I don’t want to wear skin-revealing clothes and I cannot speak fluent English, which becomes a barrier at times. Also, I don’t have a godfather and that’s another reason why I have been struggling to get a break in the Hindi industry.”
There have been times when designers have refused to give Sapna clothes for events and shows. “What I have seen is that in Mumbai, people will only talk to you when they have some work with you. The industry is full of people who constantly judge and there have been times when I haven’t got dresses from designers because of who I am. I don’t know how I have survived this long,” says Sapna.
Sapna who is still optimistic about having a carrier in this industry says, “Whatever I am today is because of my performances. Dance is and will always be my first love. It is not that I am done with dancing but I want to explore other things too. I hope I get something soon,”
Talking about Bigg Boss 11 and if it helped her in anyway, she says, “People feel that the contestants become big celebrities after doing the show. But that isn’t the case. To win the game people behave erratically in the house! I played in a certain way that I was comfortable with but overall it didn’t really work for me,” she says.
