Along with Dalljiet Kaur, the other contestants on Bigg Boss 13 are Sidharth Shukla, Rashami Desai, Koena Mitra, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Abu Malik, Mahira Sharma, Shefali Bagga, Siddharth Dey, Shehnaaz Gill, Asim Riaz, Paras Chhabra and Arti Singh.
“I am nervous as hell,” Dalljiet Kaur shared minutes before entering the Bigg Boss 13 house. The actor, popular for her work in shows like Kulvadhu, Iss Pyaar ko Kya Naam Doon and Qayamat Ki Raat, is one of the 13 celebrity contestants in the Salman Khan-hosted reality show.
In an exclusive conversation with indianexpress.com, the actor said, “I am really scared to leave my son Jaydon behind. That’s the only thing I am thinking at the moment. My mind is so preoccupied that I can’t even think of what will happen once I step into the show.”
Dalljiet Kaur has been single-handedly bringing up her almost six-year-old son Jaydon after separating from her husband Shaleen Bhanot. When asked what did she tell him, the actor said with a smile, “I told him that mummy is going for a competition and will not be around for a while. He is so young that he doesn’t understand the magnitude of how many days it could be. He cheered me up and said that mommy come home as a winner.”
The actor’s name has made it to the list of probable contestants for the last many years. When asked what was about this season that she finally said yes, Dalljiet stated, “I have indeed been approached for earlier seasons too. Not that Jaydon has grown up but he was too young for me to leave him alone in the past. At present, he can communicate well and express things. I know that my friends and family can take care of him well in my absence. Also, I thought before it gets too late, I should just take the plunge.”
