'If I'm allowed to wear a bikini, I'll do soaps!'


Sherlyn Chopra is full of surprises.

First off, she comes across as a rather shy and quiet girl on Bigg Boss, which is at odds with her bold and sassy image from her music videos and bikini shots.

The Outrageous singer, who got eliminated from the house, dispelled many such notions about her during a very entertaining chat on Monday. For those who missed the chat, here's what transpired.

Sherlyn Chopra says, Hi guys and girls. Glad to be here with you all. Shoot your questions.

sam asked, hi , how was your exp at Big boss, and what do you think of krk, do you belive him that he actually quit bcoz of you
Sherlyn Chopra answers, I felt neglected and rejected most of the time. I made friends with Kamal thinking that he was hilarious but later realised he is the kind of guy for whom TRP mattered more than humanity.

chandu asked, Hi Sherlyn, chandu here. very sad that you evicted from Bigboss. u maintained your dignity in the house. i was wishing you to see you more. what say?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Hi Chandu. Thanks a ton for your affection. Honestly speaking I wasn't mentally prepared to leave the house. I was beginning to gel with the housemates and it was sad to know that they thought of me as a fake person.

bigguy asked, hi, how is life after bigboss
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Amazing! There are interesting offers pouring in. Thanks to the exposure on Colors.

vindoo asked, How is Shamita as a person?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Well from what I could see, it was clear that she is hyper-sensitive, tears come to her at the drop of a hat.

varvind4 asked, hi sherlyn...i like your name..what does it mean
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Hi dear. I choose to believe it is the name of a Greek goddess.

hiitsanand asked, what are your upcoming projects
Sherlyn Chopra answers, This month I will be performing for the Mumbai Police Force followed by an exciting never seen before show for a major entertainment channel.

sanjay4ever asked, Hi Are u aware of ,Raju was flirting with u.
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Do you really think so? Most of the time I could not comprehend his comedy, especially the punches.

Atul Bakshi asked, Hi Sherlyn, Hope you are fine! it was difficult to understand your nature during your days at big boss house, dont you you think that this was one reason that you have to leave house ? there has to be something more to entertain people since you go in there and people watch to see how the their big stars are and what all they can do to entertain in a house like big boss ?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Hi Atul! I cannot act 24x7. I was just being myself and the real me is an introvert. However there were times when I entertained the house inmates with my dancing abilities on the dining table and also a strip-tease act.

amitabyss asked, Hey Sherlyn, Never expected you to be so silent and shy in Big Boss.
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Hi Amitabyss! As a person I am very shy. Also as I was nominated every week I was beginning to feel rejected and misunderstood and was trying to analyze as to where I was going wrong.

Dannu asked, Would you like to enter in Big Boss House as a Wild Card?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, That privilege has been taken by Pravesh. Nevertheless given a chance I would love to get back and kick some a**!

hr asked, whom do u think will be winner in bigg boss 3 ?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, It's hard to tell. My prediction is Raju or Poonamji.

adiiiiiiii asked, Hi. Sherlyn.. Wen u wer in the house who according to u was ur true wellwisher.. and now after coming out wud u like to go again as a wild card entry..??..
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Poonamji and Ismailji were two people I really was fond of.

spacejunkyharsh asked, What prompted you to take part in Bigg Boss? Can you say some quote for me. I am harsh here.
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Mind blowing monetary benefit and a great opportunity to build a connect with the audiences.

vikrant asked, Hi Sherlyn when can we expect ur next album after dard e sherlyn ??
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Talks are on with T Series. Hopefully very soon.

Navnish asked, HI ur looking so hot how u could manage in ur real life..
Sherlyn Chopra answers, I visit my doc regularly :)

shitya asked, I Casting couch there in bollywood? if yes, then have u compromised?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Hi Shitya! The couch does exist but there is no casting that happens on the couch. What happens is two or more individuals fooling around and living in a world of delusion.

Vish asked, Hi Sherlyn,Do you think shipa's sister will be getting off from Big house for 2-3 days so that she will be able to attend the sister marriage? If yes don't u think this is wrong against Big Boss rule to communicate outside the world during the show is going on?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, Considering Shilpa's association with Big Brother and Bigg Boss 2, I strongly feel Shamita will be allowed to quit sooner or later.

Prince asked, hi sherlyn, hope u r doing well. I wanted to know hw you came into bollywood and then into bigboss. Tell me the experience of the life inside it and what you have learnt from them which mt help you outside in ur career. I also want to know what you have studied?
Sherlyn Chopra answers, I moved to Mumbai in 2005 as there was nothing happening in Hyderabad for me both professionally and personally. And I studied upto BCom first year and then dropped out of college. I was approached last year for Bigg Boss 2, then I had no dates as I was shooting for Dil Bole Hadippa. I'm glad I got to be a part of Bigg Boss 3. I got to re-discover myself in the house amongst the house inmates who were being very judgemental. Also I've learnt that the one thing that is most important is to walk in supreme love.
