When asked about venturing into the unknown space of reality show, Sonu Sood said, “Even I asked the same questions, whether I am from the same space as the show, I didn’t think I will be able to do what others did, or handle it all that well, but it is a whole new packaging and a whole new world, the show is bigger, and I was able to connect with people as I normally do, that was very special, we all were living our lives, that is the USP of the show”
Talking about the show and the most difficult aspect of it, Sonu added, “Eliminating someone was the toughest for me, I’d try and retain every contestant in every possible way. I’d find reasons to keep them on the show, as my emotions were attached to each one of them, but it is shown, there is a format in place, one would get selected and then eliminated, but I have tried to make their journey smooth”
