In his recent interview, Anup Jalota spoke about his acting debut and even compared it with the role he played as a Bigg Boss contestant.
Anup Jalota essays the role of a politician in crime drama Pataal Lok. To iwmbuzz, he was quoted saying, "It’s never too late to take up a new challenge. And this was an easy one. Playing the Dalit political leader was not difficult at all. After all, I had been on Bigg Boss which is the toughest role to perform for any actor." Well, indeed it is tough to be in Bigg Boss house.
He even mentioned that the show was first titled as Jamuna Paar. "It was called Jamuna Paar and I was asked to play a politician. The offer came from Anushka Sharma’s office. They informed me that I’d have to shoot for eight days in Chitrakoot and then a couple of days in Mumbai. They said I had the correct look for it. I agreed without a second thought," he quipped.
