Manya Singh Says She’s Doing Bigg Boss 16 For Money: ‘Withdrew Myself From Miss India Training To Become An Actor’

“I am a desi chori, who is not afraid of anything. I enter the house with only excitement,” said Manya Singh before entering the Bigg Boss 16 house.

The Miss India runner-up is one of 16 contestants in the Salman Khan-hosted show. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Manya revealed why she signed the show. “I really want to make a lot of money, that’s the main reason for joining the show. I also want people to recognize me. Priyanka Chopra is also a Miss India but people know her for who she is not only in India but worldwide. That’s what I want,” she said.

Born in Uttar Pradesh, Manya Singh ran away from home at age 14 in search of a better life. Her parents followed her lead to support her dreams. Her father drives an auto rickshaw in Mumbai, and according to her confession, she continues to do so, as she didn’t really take a big chance even after her Miss India stint. Speaking of Bigg Boss 16, Manya shared that she is excited to see the house as the infrastructure of the glass door house has always fascinated her. As for things she’s afraid of, the model said she’s quite a foodie and gets cranky when she’s hungry. “That’s all I worry about.”

Manya also revealed that she has withdrawn from Miss India training because she has other career aspirations. “I want to go into acting. And that has everything to do with discovering ourselves. This is why I withdrew from the training because I didn’t want to be projected as an ordinary and correct person. And because I know people like me in real life, I’m not afraid to be in the spotlight 24×7 during the show. Since it’s a reality show, I’m really looking forward to being myself on the show,” she said, adding that she wants to get noticed on the show and get some acting projects.

Manya Singh said that her parents have always supported her in everything she did, and they were excited about this opportunity. She also remembered getting the call from the creators of Bigg Boss on the day of Ganpati Visarjan. “It was Ganpati’s last day and we were about to go for the Visarjan when the team called and said you were on board. I felt like the universe was telling me it was time to do the show.”

The Miss India runner-up went on to say that she is a ‘gaon ki ladki’ and never expected to share the stage with superstar Salman Khan. “I hope I can inspire many more girls who find the courage to dream and then make them come true.”

When asked if she too agrees that Bigg Boss has lost his charm over the years, she replied: “I bring the charm. I brought the charm to Miss India and will now in Bigg Boss 16.”

Manya Singh said she has a lot of patience to survive the game, but if someone does test it, she can flare up. In terms of competitiveness, she said that she has worked hard for Miss India for six years, so she will do everything she can to win the trophy this season.

Finally, when we asked her to pick three things she would have smuggled into the house. ‘My Ganpati-bappa, packets of crisps and my crown. The crown is very important to me and I always want to keep it close,” she concluded.

Except Manya Singh, Tina Dutta, Sreejita De, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia, Shalin Bhanot, Gori Nagori, Sumbul Toqueer, Sajid Khan, Gautam Vig, MC Stan, Shiv Thakare, Soundarya Sharma, Archana Gautam, Priyanka Chahar Chaudhary, Ankit Gupta and Abdu Rozik will fight to lift the Bigg Boss 16 trophy.
