Actor Elli Avram created quite a buzz when she first appeared on reality show Bigg Boss season 7 in 2013. While she was gearing up for her Bollywood debut Mickey Virus (2013), it was her proximity with the host of the show Salman Khan, which garnered a lot of attention. The film eventually failed to make an impact at the box office. Four years on, the actor says the show still holds a special place in her heart.
“Bigg Boss changed my life from not being someone known to becoming a household name. I have travelled around the world and I remember, I was in the US and while on the street outside an Indian restaurant, I heard a guy screaming ‘Oh My God, this is Elli from Bigg Boss’. That’s when I realised how huge the show has made me.”
