Sourabh had also secured entry in the season 12 of the show as a commoner since back then commoners were allowed through auditions along with his friends Shivashish Mishra. Saurabh, who was a farmer entrepreneur before entering the show, and shared the house with other contestants like Jasleen Matharu, Anup Jalota, Sreesanth and Dipika Kakkar.
With the next season prepping for the entry of contestants and Salman Khan having made that announcement of allowing commoners, in the finale of Bigg Boss 14, Sourabh shares some advice to aspirants. “First of, you have to give basic information about yourself like your name, age, marital status, your family background and your profession,” says Saurabh, adding, “Then you have to list the reason why you want to go to Bigg Boss and what qualities-do you possess, like what is your true nature like. You have to tell them whom do you get along with, what kind of friends do you make and people do you like or dislike. ”
However, Sourabh dispels the allegation that contestants have to pay money to get into Bigg Boss house. “There is no money involved in getting into Big Boss, unlike what is sometimes speculated. It is not true. And if anyone is asking you for money promising you a seat in the Bigg Boss house, he is duping you. Don’t fall for it,” he says.
