Pati Patni Aur Woh actress Ananya Panday visited the set of the TV reality show Bigg Boss 13, where she promoted her upcoming film. During Sunday's episode, Ananya Panday told the show's host Salman Khan that she is a big fan of the show. The actress revealed that watching Bigg Boss is a part of her daily routine and that nobody in her house is allowed to talk when the episode is on air. "It is mandatory for me to watch the episode while I am having dinner and no one else in the house is allowed to talk when the episode is on air. Mom and me sincerely stick to the TV screen and also discuss the episode. If I somehow miss it, I will make sure I watch it online the next day," Ananya said during the show.
During an interview with news agency IANS, Ananya revealed that she is so "obsessed" with the show that on her 17th birthday, her mother Bhavana Panday got her a special Bigg Boss-themed cake. "I have been watching the show ever since. I think this is one of the shows that my mom and I bond over. In fact, my mother got a Bigg Boss-themed cake on my 17th birthday because I was so obsessed with the show. I am one of those obsessed fans who ask everyone to keep quiet when the show comes on TV," IANS quoted Ananya as saying.
Ananya talked about how she was "overwhelmed" when she learnt that she would be on the show to promote her upcoming film. "So, finally when I went to Bigg Boss 13 for Pati Patni Aur Woh promotions, I was so much in awe I couldn't speak much. I was like, 'Is this for real?' I was overwhelmed to see Salman Khan Sir in real life! I was like... 'Am I really here on the set of Bigg Boss', a show that I have seen so many years?"
Ananya Panday is busy with the promotional duties of Pati Patni Aur Woh, co-starring Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar.
