A voice for the youth

Drawing attention to the forbidden first fantasies of youth, Gautam Gulati is excited to host MTV’s new series ‘Big F’. The 10-episode series gives voice to the secret encounters and forbidden fantasies that happen in real life, which most youths tend to hide due to societal norms.

In a chat with ‘Metrolife’, Gautam says, “I think the show has a great concept. It’s natural to have fantasies in your life and it’s also completely okay for one to proceed with them. With ‘Big F’, we talk about the chemistry, the connection and how one can overcome one’s problems. It’s about spreading a message to the youth and talking to them in a way that they would understand.”

The show sheds light on basic human urges in a non-judgemental yet bold manner. They aim to show that the youth of today are not afraid to speak their minds and talk about their feelings.

They have the courage to stand up for what they believe in and break the stereotypes that stop them. Gautam had won hearts with his exuberance as an actor and on the reality show ‘Big Boss 8’.

He is now excited to be part of this new venture. When asked how his life has changed since ‘Big Boss’, he says, “It’s been very, very good. I have a lot of back-to-back shows happening, got a couple of offers for shoots and a lot more people recognise me now.”

He also says that he hasn’t watched much of ‘Big Boss 9’ but says that it looks interesting. “I haven’t really got the time to see the whole episode, but I saw bits and parts of the pilot episode. It looks unique as it’s going to be doubles; I’d like to wait a bit more to see how it’ll turn out. But good luck to the contestants. It’s not an easy place to stay in after all.”

Although he is an all-rounder with acting, dancing and hosting skills, he says he likes to be known as an actor first. He explains, “Acting was what got me into this industry and I’ve been working hard at it for the past eight years. I love dancing and hosting, but it’s not something that I want to completely focus on — the se two add to my unique characteristics.”

When Gautam is not busy shooting or doing  shows, he enjoys working out at the gym, going out with his friends and just having a good time with the people he loves.
