Actor Siddharth Shukla, who stepped into the Bigg Boss 13 house as a contestant, is well versed with reality TV shows. He participated in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 and survived till almost the show's end. Siddharth Shukla is also the winner of stunt-based reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 7. Ahead of his entry in the Bigg Boss 13 house, speaking to news agency IANS, the contestant revealed "It's a challenge, one I had never thought I would take." The Balika Vadhu actor explained why he thought so: "I have been a pampered boy, the youngest in the family with two elder sisters. I have always had someone around me, usually my mom, to take care of everything for me. This is going to be quite a challenge for me, to do everything on my own."
Now that he has signed up for Bigg Boss 13, winning every task will be his only prerogative in the house: "I think I would take part in a lot of tasks, in fact in every task and would want to win because I usually play to win and I really wish it gets the best out of me rather than the other way around," Siddharth told IANS.
When asked about his survival strategy in the house, Siddharth Shukla said: "It's a game, you can't predict. The best is to be yourself! And I am planning on giving it my best, fingers crossed."
Siddharth Shukla, who joined Bigg Boss 13 with 13 other contestants, added: "It's great that the show has gone back to its original format which is having only celebrities this season. Many of us may have worked with each other and I am looking forward to meeting everyone inside the house. Good or bad, time will tell."
Bigg Boss 13 took off with a blockbuster premiere on Sunday with names such as Koena Mitra, Dalljiet Kaur, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Aarti Singh, Mahira Sharma, Shehnaaz Gill, Rashami Desai, Shefali Bagga, Abu Malik, Asim Riaz, Paras Chhabra and Sidhharth Dey.
