Popular TV star Aly Goni appeared in Bigg Boss 14 on Wednesday. The trailer announced his joining, the actor said that he decided to join the show because he couldn’t see his good friend Jasmin Bhasin going through an emotional turmoil. The two have previously been involved in Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 and Khatron Ke Khiladi – Made in India.
Before entering the house, Goni spoke privately with indianexpress.com and shared that if possible, he would never nominate Jasmin. “And even if she nominated me, I wouldn’t mind,” said the person she loved. In one conversation, the 29-year-old also talked about competing with his friend and how he intends to play an individual game. He also shared about taking on the contestants.
Excerpt from conversation:
As the ad suggests, you’re joining Bigg Boss 14 for your friend Jasmin Bhasin. Do you think that’s the right reason to make a reality show?
Why not? I have been in talks about the program for a long time, and will probably do it at some point in my career. And this is a game where you always need mental support. So it’s a good opportunity to join together with a friend. This is a great time to stay on Bigg Boss.
Compete with your friends will be a tough call. And do you think it could affect your relationship?
Nothing. We went into two programs that were competing together and that has never affected our relationship. I don’t think a game show will ruin our relationship. Also, to be honest, while I was on the show, I still wanted her to win Bigg Boss 14. I promised her I would do anything to see her bring back the trophy.
What do you think Jasmin’s reaction to seeing you indoors?
Honestly, I have no opinion. I don’t even know what I’m going to tell her. We have never been apart for so long, not even talking on the phone. I’m really excited to meet her, and I hope she will be happy too.
Last week, Jasmin had a lot of emotion after his fight with Rahul Vaidya. How difficult is it to watch it on television?
It was quite difficult, not only for me, but her family and even other friends. I told her she shouldn’t cry and even until the very last moment asked her to be strong. However, I think all of this will only make her stronger. It was a powerless situation back then, but now I’m happy that I’ll be there for her the whole time.
You have shared your opinion about the contestants on social networks during the past time. You are participating in the program have any comments?
Since I’ve done reality shows, I know that only a certain part of the shot is shown to the public. Now that I’m going to be a contestant, I don’t want to have any prejudice about them. I’d rather build my opinion after interacting with them and getting to know them better. Over the next few days, you will be able to see how I feel about them on the show itself.
Would you like to follow your friend Jasmin’s equation or build a personal connection in the program?
It really doesn’t matter if I become friends with her friends. I really don’t make easy friends. And from what we saw on the show, people are stoning each other all the time. I will make my own connections and that too, with caution.
You are already on Khatron Ke Khiladi, where you battle your fears. What is the fear you want to fight on Bigg Boss 14?
I want to test my autonomy in the program. From childhood, I was very aggressive, and caused a lot of fights even in school. I have calmed down a lot over the years. Also, I tend to overdo it a lot, so I wanted to see how much control I could be. This will be a good opportunity to know my threshold.
Faced with rumors that you are both dating, do you think being together at home will help clarify your point or add fuel to the fire?
It really doesn’t bother both of us anymore. We enjoy spending time together and being close friends. Now we have started ignoring it.
It is said that you are one of the highest paid contestants this season. What can you say about that?
What do I say about this? (Laughter) I don’t know what other people take. I have charged whatever amount I feel is correct. I have worked hard over the years and I am grateful to God for whatever I have received.
What’s missing from Bigg Boss 14, which you will continue to add?
I don’t really know, but maybe some happiness. We don’t see joy in the house, and I believe in cooling and making others happy around me. People are getting too involved in the game. I’m sure everyone will love who I am and support me in the game.
