“How is Priyanka Chopra even connected to Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 11?” – must have been the first question on your mind after clicking on this story. And no, we don’t blame you for the headline literally comes across as if PC is involved in choosing the contestants for Salman’s show. Oh, you wish! However, the story here is obviously not about Priyanka but her look-alike Navpreet Banga who was approached for the show. Remember the rumour that was doing the rounds for the longest time? Click HERE to get a back story!
Turns out Navpreet, who is a Youtube Star, was considered for Bigg Boss 11 just because she looks like the Quantico star but that’s exactly why Navpreet didn’t think twice before turning down the offer. Clarifies Navpreet in interaction with Hindustan Times, “I found out from an article that I’m even in consideration for the show. I got the final call, where they wanted me to think about it. And I rejected it right away. feel that it’s discrediting so much that I do. I think part of the reason people wanted me to go [on] Bigg Boss was because of what I look like. That’s not a good enough reason to go anywhere. I have earned a position, I want to be called Navpreet Banga, and they recall me [by] that name and that’s how I want to move forward in life.”

Raise your Standards. Your life is the result of your standards… A lot of us are okay with having very little. Very little respect, very little pay, little love in your relationships, little efforts for your health.. etc. And if that is what you want…that is what you will always have. RAISE YOUR STANDARDS. DO NOT ACCEPT LESS THAN THE BEST FROM YOURSELF. You get what you make a MUST in your life, not your ‘I SHOULD’ do this.. ‘ I SHOULD’ do that. DEMAND MORE. YOU ARE WORTH MORE. Demand more respect and demand more work from yourself and have a higher standard your physical health and how you EAT! Stop with the old patterns of ‘ well this is good enough’ WHEN YOU ARE MEANT TO BE FUUUUUCKING GREAT! #DemandMore #RaiseYourStandards

Navpreet is irritated by the fact how she is losing her identity just because she looks like Priyanka as she added, “This lookalike thing makes me feel that I’m nothing else but that. People call me [Priyanka’s] lookalike all the time. Some even say that I do it on purpose. I can’t change the way I look; I am born this way and I sound this way. I don’t want to be known as PC’s lookalike because I am so much more,”
For those who don’t know, Navpreet is quite a funky vlogger where the number of views on her videos easily run into a couple of millions. She is fairly also big on Instagram with about 175,000 followers. Keep watching this space for more updates.
