Pratyusha, who is from Jamshedpur, has become a known face thanks to the show.
She even went on to participate in dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, but she couldn't be on the show for long due to health issues.
The housemates in the Indian version are primarily celebrities with the exception of one who is a non-celebrity selected via auditions.
Housemates are overseen by a mysterious person known as 'Bigg Boss', whose only presence in the house is through his voice. The house was earlier located in the tourist place of Lonavla, Pune district of Maharashtra, however the house for the fifth season was located ND Studios in Karjat. It has all kinds of modern amenities, but just one or two bedrooms and four toilet bath rooms.
Pratyusha stepped into the shoes of child prodigy Avika Gor as Anandi in 2010, when the show, based on child marriage, took a five-year leap. The current track shows her married to Shivraj Alok Shekhar, essayed by actor Siddharth Shukla.
