'All the offers are the same'

Actress Anita Bhat, who was recently seen in ‘Bigg Boss Kannada Season 2’, says she is tired of working under people and would prefer to do something on her own.


“I have crossed that age where I can be a hero’s heroine. All the offers are the same — they have two or three songs, two or three scenes for the heroine and are completely hero-oriented,” she says. 

Instead of waiting for such a woman-oriented script to come her way, she has decided to take things into her own hands and start her own production house. 

“I have always wanted to do something on my own and I’d rather start producing than wait for a good script to come along. Of course, I will star in the film,” she says. 

Along with the production house, she has also started a trust called ‘Arpana Women Welfare Trust’. 

“When I first came to Bangalore from Shimoga, I was all alone and struggled a lot. I had a lot of relatives here but no one helped. I lacked financial and moral support at the time but somehow I managed it on my own. I wanted to do something for women as I have suffered too.” 

She says she went about helping as many individuals as she came across before her friends suggested she open up a trust. 

According to Anita, she wants to target final-year degree students in rural areas and help them with their communication skills.

 She adds, “When I first came to Bangalore, I didn’t know how to interact in interviews. I want to help train these students so that their communication skills improve and they don’t have problems during interviews and group discussions when they are applying for jobs.”

Talking about her time in ‘Bigg Boss’, she says, “I had no experiences as such as I was there for just a week. That one week was good and I made 13 friends and got good exposure. I wish I had the chance to stay two or three weeks longer; I was actually hoping I would get in through the wild card entry,” she says. 

She adds, “I wasn’t well and was hospitalised for a while just before the show. The air conditioning was the biggest problem for me. At first, the other contestants thought I don’t adjust well, but after two or three days, everyone loved me.” However, that wasn’t enough to keep her in the competition.
