Mumbai: The elusive list of celebrities to be locked up in the Bigg Boss house is out, and it includes Natasa Stankovic who was last seen in the film Satyagraha. The dancer-actress from Serbia spoke to us just before going into voluntary captivity. “I’m excited as well as nervous. I watched a few episodes of the show’s last season apart from Big Brother, back home in Serbia. When I was offered the show, I didn’t take too much time to decide. I just went for it,” she says.
The rules in the Bigg Boss house demand that every contestant speak in Hindi. How does Natasa plan to pull that off? “That’s what I am scared of. I am a complete foreigner, but I want to learn Hindi and that is one of the reasons I accepted this show. I want to work in Bollywood, so I have no option but to start speaking the language. I will give it my best shot,” she says. There is another incentive, however — host Salman Khan. “I’m looking forward to meeting him. He’s a great human being and I want to work with him in the future,” she admits.
Talking about herself, Natasa says, “I was in ballet school for17 years.
Then I started modelling and got busy with it, so I never went back to performing as a ballerina. Everybody in my family is an economist and I’m the only dancer. Through this show, I want people to see my dancing skills. I also want to test my own strength.” So how did Bollywood happen? “I came to India as a model. While I was here, I also began attending movie auditions and that’s how it all started. I’m hoping to get good offers after this show.”...
