Priya Malik: “Big Brother” experience an ‘advantage’ for new “Bigg Boss Nau” entrant


Priya Malik, who was part of the Australian version show “Big Brother”, will be seen entering the “Bigg Boss Nau” house as a wild card entry.

She says her experience at the international show will be an “advantage.”

Asked if she was jittery about entering the “Bigg Boss Nau” house, Priya, who is popularly known as Posh Spice of Australian TV told IANS over phone from Lonavla: “I am not jittery at all! In fact, I have been on “Big Brother” which is a similar format, if not identical. I think that puts me at an advantage.”

Priya, who is a high school teacher in Adelaide, has her roots in Dehradun. She was part of “Big Brother Australia” in 2014, and is the fourth wild card entry to enter “Bigg Boss Nau”.

She says her “strategy is to not to be afraid of showing who I truly am unless I am Kishwar because that’s not what everyone wants to see.”


She Said “I don’t have any favourites this season… I’m talking as an audience. The list of people I dislike is a lot longer than the people I like in the house at the moment.

“Other than Rochelle Rao, I do like things about her. Then Keith Sequeira. I like him if he is coming back, and I like Digangana Suryavanshi as there is nothing to dislike about he, she has done nothing, she’s like a little statue and so I don’t mind a statue,” quipped Priya, who has been living in Australia for the past seven years.

While on “Big Bother” in Australia last year, she reportedly faced severe racial backlash which even escalated to death threats long after getting evicted from the show. Priya has faced bullying and trolled on social media.

Asked who according to her doesn’t deserve to be in the house, Priya said: “Rimi Sen doesn’t deserve to be in the house. It’s really insulting to sign a show and to not be a part of it. I’m going to tell her like it is.”

The show features celebrity contestants in a game of survival wherein they are locked in an distinct house for around three months sans the luxuries they are used to, under 24X7 camera surveillance.
