Mumbai: Swedish – Greek actress Elli Avram, who gained popularity in India with her stint in ‘Bigg Boss’, says she will watch the new season of reality show only for it’s host and ‘good friend’ Salman Khan.
“I will try to watch it regularly but I am not going to miss the weekend’s episodes because of Salman. Though I participated in the show last year, as a viewer I don’t like to watch people fighting all the time. Still I will watch it for Salman,” Elli told PTI in an interview.
The two teasers of the reality show are already up and Salman is back as a host on ‘Bigg Boss’ for the fourth time.
The inmates for the show are yet to be confirmed.
The 24-year-old ‘Mickey Virus’ star says she and Salman are still good friends and often meet at parties.
“Salman and I are still good friends. We meet at parties. But I could not attend Salman’s ‘Kick’ bash last month as I was on a month-long holiday. I watched the film and found it amazing,” Elli said.
Elli would be next seen on Colors’ dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, where she has teamed up with contestant Sophie Choudry and her choreographer partner Deepak for an act.
“I will be on Jhalak for just one episode with Sophie and Deepak for an act. This act would be the part of show’s next challenge ‘Teen Ka Tadka’. Our performance is a sensual one and I love the choreography,” she said and added, “I am very passionate about dance. I love to express myself through this art form.”
On ‘Jhalak’, she will also meet her ‘Mickey Virus’ co-star Manish Paul, who is currently hosting it with Ranvir Shorey. “It was such a fun to meet Manish on the show. We met after a long time. It was great fun,” Elli said.
The actress also credited her film debut last year for making her a popular face worldwide. Post the film, she worked on improving Hindi, dance moves and acting.
“I can communicate in Hindi now. I am going to sign my next project soon as I am reading few scripts and meeting directors,” Elli said.
Apart from films, Elli has also featured on Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s upcoming album ‘Back 2 Love’. The album will be released on August 28.
