Amar Upadhyay makes entry into Bigg Boss
"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," Amar said in a statement. "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," he said.
Amar quit the small screen almost a decade ago to pursue a career in Bollywood. But an unsuccessful stint made him return to television and float his own production company. Having been in the television industry for over ten years, Amar shares a rapport with TV actress and contestant on the show Juhi Parmar. However, most of the other contestants are relatively unknown to him.
