Amar Upadhyay, whose claim to fame is the role of Mihir Virani from popular serial, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, will be seen entering the Bigg Boss 5 house. While the house has seen 13 female contestants and only 1 male contestant in the first week, the entry of one more male contestant will definitely create some enthusiasm among the ladies and insecurity in sole-male Shakti’s mind.
On entering the house, a confident Amar said, “I decided to take up Bigg Boss 5 only to challenge myself because I am a very restless person and love parties, fast cars and long drives. The ladies in the house have only dealt with Shakti Kapoor so far, who I believe is an uncle. A real man is finally entering the house. Women don’t want to see Shakti Kapoor on screen – they want to see young blood like me. If audiences are expecting to see the Mihir side of me, they are going to be in for a shock. I am going to be myself, which is a far cry from what Mihir was!”
At the peak of his career, Amar quit Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi to make a career in Bollywood, but so far he has not been very successful. At various instances, he returned back to television for a short stint, but he has never shown deep interest in reviving his television career. Having been in the television industry for over 10 years, Amar shares a rapport with Juhi Parmar. However, most of the contestants are relatively unknown to him.
Amar Upadhyay is the first new entrant in Bigg Boss 5 and is bound to ruffle some feathers inside the house. Will Amar be accepted or treated like an outcast? To know, catch Bigg Boss 5 today at 10:30 PM on Colors.
