Fans of YouTube sensation and bodybuilder Navpreet Banga were head over heels when she was announced to be under consideration for being a contestant in Salman Khan’s upcoming show, Bigg Boss 11. By doing so, she will be the second contestant to be holding a Canadian citizenship after Sunny Leone made her grand entry about half a decade ago. Navpreet Banga is also being called Priyanka Chopra‘s doppelganger, an actress of whom she’s a big fan!
Well, but it seems like it won’t happen anytime soon.
In a report, Navpreet said “I found out from an article that I’m even in consideration for the show. I got the final call, where they wanted me to think about it. And I rejected it right away. feel that it’s discrediting so much that I do. I think part of the reason people wanted me to go [on] Bigg Boss was because of what I look like. That’s not a good enough reason to go anywhere. I have earned a position, I want to be called Navpreet Banga, and they recall me [by] that name and that’s how I want to move forward in life.”
Navpreet complains about the perils of being a doppelganger of someone famous by saying “This lookalike thing makes me feel that I’m nothing else but that. People call me [Priyanka’s] lookalike all the time. Some even say that I do it on purpose. I can’t change the way I look; I am born this way and I sound this way. I don’t want to be known as PC’s lookalike because I am so much more,”
Well, I guess her appeal is completely justified.
Stick to this space for the best of B-Town!
