Mumbai: Anita Advani, the lady who made headlines after the death of Hindi Cinema’s first superstar Rajesh Khanna, is now on TV show ‘Bigg Boss 7’.
After being approached by the makers of the show, Advani got in touch with Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar for his opinion. The best advice Bhagwagar could probably give her was tell her to be herself on the show.
According to the publicist, who handled all the hype on the Advani controversy surrounding late actor Rajesh Khanna, Anita is an “overtly emotional person” and “would very likely have multiple breakdowns in the cutthroat atmosphere of the ‘Bigg Boss’ house.”
“But mind you, she also has a lot of inner strength and can bounce back with great clarity. Basically, she’s a fighter, so don’t underestimate her as a weak contestant just because of the overflowing sentiments or tears,” added the publicist.
“Anitaji was wondering what could be in store for her in the house of scandal. I could have told her many things to guide her, but all I asked her to be, is herself.” Bhagwagar said.
He explains, “Many contestants go on ‘Bigg Boss’ with an agenda. Normally, there is a PR plan in place to help them reach the finals. But Anitaji has gone there to face her past and move on in life. There is no plan; no agenda. Neither am I handling her PR while she is in ‘Bigg Boss’. So, to be herself, was the best advice I could have given her, knowing well the person she is.”
For the record, Dale was himself invited as a contestant for BB7, but he chose not to take it up. Now, let’s see how far Anita Advani goes without a PR plan in ‘Bigg Boss’.
