Highlights

  1. "I am not going in with the baggage of my fan base," she said
  2. "Khatron Ke Khiladi gave me a lot of confidence," added Hina
  3. Hina celebrates her 30th birthday today
The grand premiere of Bigg Boss 11, hosted by superstar Salman Khan, was aired on Sunday night. Television actress Hina Khan, best-known for her role in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, received a warm welcome like others and it’s a special day for her, as on October 2, she celebrates her 30th birthday. Ahead of her entry into the house, she revealed few details on why she signed the show to Hindustan Times. “I have been doing Indian television for so long, I want to break that image of me as a bahu. I have seen actors who have done such shows for years and they are never able to come out of that image,” she said. Hina was part of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai since its inception (2009) and quit the show just last year.

Before entering the show, she posted a video for her fans on social media, confirming her participation.
 

Bigg Boss 11, like last year, has two sets of participants – celebrities and the non-celebrities. Manveer Gurjar, a non-celebs, was Bigg Boss 10’s winner. Of her strategy, Hina Khan told Hindustan Times that she is not dependent on her fan base but is also here to prove herself. “Bigg Boss is not about how much fan base you already have. There are even commoners (like in the last season) who won the show without having any fans. I am therefore not going in with the baggage of my fan base, but just to prove myself,” she told Hindustan Times.
 

On Saturday, Hina was declared the first runner-up of reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 8. Her participation was also kept secretive by the makers of Bigg Boss 11 unlike some, who were introduced ahead of the premiere (including Shilpa Shinde). Hina says that Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 boosted her confidence and she’s quite positive about Bigg Boss 11. “Doing Khatron… gave me a lot of confidence, that why not? Zyaada se zyaada I will get eliminated,” she told Hindustan Times, adding that Salman Khan was the main reason behind signing the show.
 

Apart from Hina Khan, the Bigg Boss 11 line-up also includes - Shilpa Shinde, Vikas Gupta, Hiten Tejwani, Priyank Sharma, Benafshaa Soonawala, the celebrities while Jyoti Kumari, Sshivani Durgah, Sapna Choudhary, Puneesh Sharma, Zubair Khan, Akash Anil Dadlani, form the non-celeb group. Sabyasachi Satyapathi, Luv Tyagi, Mehjabi Siddiqui and Lucinda Nicholas are the four padosis.
