I'm thrilled to be a part of  Sweetu. I love how my character is sketched. Also working with Juhi Di who I began my career, life has surely come a full circle. It does get overwhelming sometimes but after spending enough time at home during the lockdown, I don't want to stop.”

When I was a novice at 19 & wanted to make a full-fledged career in acting, I sought guidance from Juhi Di & Nadira Ji & have also assisted them in a couple of plays. I would take lessons in pronunciation & diction. After all these years, I didn't think we'd share screen space someday. Shooting for this movie felt surreal. You'll probably see the camaraderie that we have for real, on-screen.”

Bahu Humari Rajni Kant fame  Ridhima Pandit was one of the contestants of the reality show Bigg Boss OTT, hosted by Karan Johar. The actress had to leave the show at a very early stage owing to her connection. She shared in an interview with Etimes TV that she was not prepared to leave the show so soon and feels she was a strong contestant of the show.

The actress said, “I was all prepared to be in the BB house for much longer and I didn't expect to come out so soon. But I think the concept of staying connected and having a partner didn't work in my favor. If I had played solo in the house then I think I would have stayed longer in BBOTT.”

Ridhima was asked if she felt she was a misfit in the show, and she said, “I don't feel that. When I came out and met my friends, they told me I shouldn't have allowed people to overtake my conversations in the house. But I feel that it's part of having manners that if someone isn't letting me finish my talk and is starting their own conversation, I stay quiet and leave from there, instead of making chaos out of nothing. I did have my episode where I blasted one of the contestants when they were wrong. But I don't unnecessarily fight because even my father was watching the show.”

She shared her thoughts on her nomination also as she said that she was not nominated because of the tasks or for the entertainment reasons, but the whole house was nominated for elimination. She said her vote ranking was high but she does not know what went wrong. She felt that having a connection in the house did not work for her.

The actress Ridhima Pandit and Karan Nath were evicted from the house the previous weekend. It was a shocking twist as two people were evicted in the show. Ridhima Pandit shared she was genuine and her eviction came as a shock for her. 

The actress recently opened up on her journey in the show and the reason for her eviction from Bigg Boss OTT with Etimes TV. She shared her disappointment with an early eviction from the show, “Yes, I am very disappointed with my eviction. In fact, when my name was announced I was shocked. But logically the show was about connection and our connection failed to connect, hence we were voted out.”

She said she is confident about her individual vote count, but felt that her connection was weak. She said that she hasn’t checked but she knows that she must have got votes. But the concept of the game is about contestants and together it seems they were weak.

Ridhima Pandit also talked about how she was perceived in the house does not impact how she is in reality. She said, “I was myself very real and if some people didn’t like me then that is me. I feel they liked me as my character when they saw me on screen. But as a human being, this is me. I believe in being a bigger person. If I feel I have done something wrong. I go and apologize after I cool down. That sorry is genuine. I don’t apologize because I am a coward or I want to run away from confrontations. My only philosophy in life is that it is a very small life and there is no point in living inside the same house with so much hatred. It’s better to clarify like mature adults. I have no regrets and my journey was short-lived but very difficult.”

The actress also made clear to her fans that there is no love angle between her and Karan Nath. She feels is a nice guy, but she cannot offer anything more than friendship at this stage of life. She added that even  Karan Nath also has no such feelings for her.

Contestants Ridhima Pandit and Karan Nath got eliminated from the Bigg Boss OTT house yesterday, as the duo had received the least amount of votes as a connection. However, before entering the BB OTT house, Ridhima in an exclusive conversation with had revealed one of her reasons for participating in the reality show. When asked if she is open to entering the television version of the show - which is hosted by Salman Khan - here’s what she had to say.

“Yes, a hundred percent. Mr. Salman Khan is one of my biggest motivations to do this show. I am a big fan, I love him, I love him, I love him so much. I think the first film that I ever watched that my brain has any memory of is Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, and I have been in love with him ever since. So definitely he is one of the biggest reasons… just the feeling of him saying ‘Ridhima ’, and I’ll be like, ‘Yes please tell me, sir, what happened’,” laughs the actress.

She was also very excited to collaborate with  Karan Johar on Bigg Boss OTT. “I think it's a great opportunity for all of us who get to interact with him at any level. I have been a fan of his work forever. I am going to tell him when I get the chance to interact with him, that one of the reasons I am an actor today is because of the way he portrays his heroines in the movie. Plus, I do see him having the streak of a mentor, which he has been to so many people. So pertaining to this show, I hope he mentors us really well too, and gets the best fun banter out of us,” Ridhima had said. 

The actress Ridhima Pandit is presently one of the contestants on the reality show Bigg Boss OTT. She is deemed as a strong candidate for the show, for her positive aura.

Ridhima and Kushal are living separate lives now and she quoted, “I have immense respect for him and he is a great friend. I wish him well in all his endeavors. As of now, I am focussing on my career and don’t want to be written about for anything else. How can a relationship be my identity? I have worked very hard to reach where I am today. I don’t seek publicity through others.”

Kushal also spoke once about his connection with Ridhima as he posted on social media, “An indispensable prerequisite for a breakup is an existing relationship. To the best of my knowledge, I have been single for over a couple of years.”

Produced by Sonali Jaffer, the show that was based on Rajni aka Ridhima, a robot machine designed inside a human body, was simply an amalgamation of fun and innocence, giving away a lot of laughter and aww moments! While the acting is in itself difficult, portraying the role of a machine in the form of a human so convincingly is definitely a tough row to hoe. But the protagonist, Riddhima Pandit aka Rajni, surely did a fantastic job! Unlike the current Icchadhari margins or Makkhi Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi saga, this show was light and did not give the viewers heavy doses of the typical saas-bahu dramas, revenge, planning, plotting, etc! Every dialogue delivered by Rajni in the typical robotic style is just so funny and adorable! It brought a smile to the viewer's face!
