What would you choose when the options are between a high-profile job in one of the world’s top employers and a place on a popular television world? Job gives you social and financial security while with television, if stars align, can instantly give you fame. Well, 23-year-olds Nitibha Kaul, who used to work at Google Marketing Solutions as an account strategist, has opted for the show. She is a contestant at the Bigg Boss 10 and has given up her Google job.
Nitibha is from Kashmir. She also earlier participated in Miss India contest. Until recently she worked for Google India, with her area of specialisation being advertising and marketing.

The other names in this list are Manoj Punjabi, Manveer Gurjar, Lokesh Kumari Sharma, Priyanka Jagga, Akansha Sharma and Om Swami. Bigg Boss is one of the most watched shows on TV in India.
While for few people choosing Bigg Boss over Google may seem to be an easy entry into the glamour world of Bollywood, There are many who may see this as a “mistake” because a job at Google is often dream coming true for many. The company, here in India, as well as in other locations across the world, is considered as one of the best places to work.
