ALL EYES ON JASMIN BHASIN

With an unwavering resolve and an ardent zeal for her craft, Jasmin Bhasin has geared up for the long run. Her frankness, her candid wit is what makes her so interesting. One can’t help but connect with her. The other reason she’s on cloud nine is because of Bigg Boss and working on projects one after another. Happiness is her only pursuit – be it professional or personal. Here, she airs her views about the pandemic, her career, love, and life in general…

Congratulations for Bigg Boss. Your journey was full of surprises, and some ups and downs. How was your overall experience?

I consider my overall journey and experience as a journey of growth, realization. It has added to my life professionally and personally. It has given me immense popularity.

In what ways has Bigg Boss changed you?

I believe I am the same person who went inside. Bigg Boss hasn’t changed me. I have just learned to control my temper.

Did you make any friends on the show with whom you have been in touch, once the show ended?

I am in touch with almost everybody from the show. Everybody is doing really well post Bigg Boss and I am really happy to see them doing well

How has your relationship evolved with Aly after Bigg Boss?

We were friends, and it has always been a great bond but Bigg Boss made us realize that it was always more than just friendship and attachment. And, we were just living in denial. That realization and respect came after Bigg Boss. We are really enjoying this phase. It’s been beautiful after Bigg Boss and let’s hope it stays the same

I use organic saffron and neem face wash on my skin. I refrain from using medicated face washes; I use rose water and splash it on my skin. I make sure I use a very good hydrating moisturizer and before makeup, I prime and protect my skin. At night, no matter what time I pack up, I clean my makeup nicely with Cetaphil and then moisturize it and use a good night care routine with retinol and anti-aging ingredients. I also make sure to drink a lot of water to stay healthy and hydrated.

What were some of the silver linings of 2020 that you see yourself carrying in 2021?

Though we were struggling with Pandemic and locked up inside the good part was over the years I never had the time to take a break and I realized it is important to take a break and evaluate ourselves and our emotions after some time. I realized the importance of family and friends due to pandemics. And, I got my offer for Bigg Boss. All these things brought positivity to my life.

What do you love most about him?

I love his happy go lucky nature and how he adds charm and positivity around himself, with his presence, and how loving, protective and caring he is towards me.

What is your idea of an ideal romantic date?

Right now, I want to go to some beach with great food, music, weather.

Do you believe perfection is overrated?

Yes, it is because we all have flaws and nobody is perfect. So, we should accept our flaws, cherish and work on them. There is beauty and grace in accepting your flaws and being humble about them.

Is it safe to say you have evolved as an artist?

Yes, I have evolved as an artist and not as an artist but as a person too. It is important to evolve as an artist with time, with circumstances. From where I started to where I am, how confident I feel today. I want to take on challenges as an artist, as a performer. I would always want to keep evolving. I never want to put a full stop to learning and evolving

What does beauty mean to you today?

I think beauty means feeling confident and good about oneself. Everybody has different standards of beauty. We can never live up to others’ standards of beauty. I think everything is fine as long as you feel happy, and enhance your beauty, and feel confident in your skin. Everybody should embrace their flaws because your flaws make you different and that also adds to your beauty.

How important is mental health to you?

Mental health is very important I believe. It is as important as physical health. I have always felt we sometimes ignore the mental health of our friends, and family. I think the most important thing is mental health because if your mind is in the right state, it takes the right decision; it easier to live a positive, healthier and happier life. There is nothing wrong in accepting if we are suffering, as it can be treated and has a solution to it. The only problem is acceptance and we should learn to accept and work towards it.

Has life turned out the way you imagined it?

Yes. I always imagined being successful in my career, having a happy positive personal life. Professionally, I am doing great since I started. Personal life, family life, everything is great. I hope it stays the same.

What are you most enjoying after getting out of the Bigg Boss house?

The most I am enjoying is eating food, traveling, and meeting my friends. We had restricted things to eat in the house and now I can eat everything I want anytime.

Please tell us about your fitness routine.

I make sure I work out 3-4 days a week, high-intensity workout for 45 minutes to one hour, and do some yoga. I eat anything and everything that makes me happy.

Share your skincare ritual you swear by?

I use organic saffron and neem face wash on my skin. I refrain from using medicated face washes; I use rose water and splash it on my skin. I make sure I use a very good hydrating moisturizer and before makeup, I prime and protect my skin.

I also make sure to drink a lot of water to stay healthy and hydrated.

The first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

I drink a warm glass of water with some turmeric, honey, lime in it so that it kick-start my metabolism.

A motto you live by?

I believe over thinking is never a solution to anything. Live life as it comes. Give your best to every opportunity you get. Stay positive and stay happy!

What do you hope to do differently with your time, to prioritize your own happiness?

For myself, I would love baking, shopping for myself, going to the spa, pampering myself, and playing with my dogs.

How has Jasmin changed over the last decade?

I think I have not changed but grown, evolved, and matured. I have more understanding about the seriousness of work and have become more disciplined.

What are other exciting projects in the pipeline?

A lot of things are in pipeline. I am in talks for a couple of web-series, Punjabi Films, music videos. Let’s see what materializes first. The audience will get to see my music videos first which I have done
