We will deal with them when we come out.”
The actress also talked about her hopes of making it to Bigg Boss 15 which will air on TV. “I want to win the televised version. That is my hope from the show. Now that I’m going inside the house, I will definitely not keep my hopes down. The hope is to win the show,” she said.
