He’s known for achieving success in a short span of time in the reality television world. He proved to be a true roadie in ‘MTV Roadies X2’ and later went on to become the ‘Ultimate King’ in ‘Splitsvilla 8’. He won the ‘Big Boss Season 9’ and what’s more, Prince Narula is now joining the ‘Renault MTV Roadies X4’ as the gang leader replacing the Indian freestyle wrestler Sushil Kumar. Narula gets candid with Anila Kurian and talks to Metrolife about his journey so far.
You’ve won 3 reality shows consecutively, how does it feel?
It feels fantastic, of course! These shows are the reason I am here today. It feels great to receive such love and affection from my fans and audience.
Tell us about our role in ‘Roadies X4’.
Last year, I auditioned with Rannvijay Singh and Karan Kundra to be part of the previous season, and today I’m the gang leader! I had a great time in the last season and I’m excited to share my experience with the new members as well. Since I’ve had hands-on experience, I hope to give them helpful tips on how to perform — both from the gang leader and member’s perspective.
Any word of advice to the members?
Yes, be true to yourself and be real to your gang leaders. Don’t fake anything and mention if you’ve achieved something in life. Even if they are not great things, express them. Also, be confident and have a strong willpower.
If you were stranded on an island, what would be the three things you could take with you?
I’d take food, my gym equipment and my family with me. I'm hoping to be well-prepared before I get stranded.
If you were a new addition to the crayon colours, which colour would you pick?
Blue. I think men in blue are sexy. Blue is also the colour of Indian Air Force. (he laughs). The colour has a calming effect, it makes me want to fly.
Tell us three things that others don’t know about you.
I have a good sense of humour. I am a very emotional person and get easily attached to people. I get very cranky without food.
Your future plans?
Well, I don’t want to be a superstar, but I definitely want to be an actor. I’m currently working on a television show — it’s a love story — and I’m very excited about it.
