While most of us believe in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, television’s most controversial reality show, Bigg Boss had proved that relationships are made inside the house. The show is nothing without its love stories and Bigg Boss had played Cupid for a lot of celeb couples over the years. Though some relationships fizzled out after the show and some parted on a sour note, some resulted in marriage and are still giving major couple goals to the fans. Antara Biswas, known for her stage name Monalisa, is a popular name in the Bhojpuri, Hindi, Bengali, Odia, Tamil, Kannada and Telugu film industries. She was in a live-in relationship with her fellow Bhojpuri actor, Vikrant Singh before entering the Bigg Boss 10 house.

When Vikrant and Monalisa had tied the knot in the Bigg Boss house, it was speculated that their marriage won’t last for long but proving everyone wrong, their relationship is growing stronger with each passing day.
In January 2021, Vikrant Singh and Monalisa will complete four years of marital life and just like every married couple, they too are being pressurised to embrace parenthood. Speaking about the same and their plans to have a child in 2021, Monalisa said in an interview with ETimes, "Yes, we are planning to have a baby soon (smiles) people will get to know soon. Maybe by next year. There is a pressure from my family and Vikrant's also. So, hopefully by next year." Revealing that she had lost 7 kgs during the lockdown, Monalisa said, "I lost 7 kgs and I feel so good about myself. I can wear all my dresses and people are complimenting me. People, fans are asking me to share my diet routine with them. It feels great."
Monalisa credited her hubby, Vikrant Singh for pushing her to lose weight and how during the lockdown, they have together made an effort to work out and get back into shape. Monalisa stated, "My husband Vikrant has been a great inspiration behind me losing weight. He pushed me to lose weight. When I returned from Bigg Boss 10, I had lost 10 kgs back then and I felt so awesome. Everyone was praising me for my new look. But again I put on weight after some time. During this lockdown, both Vikrant and I started working out and we lost all the extra kilos. We also kept a watch on what we ate. It's not like we starved ourselves. We eat healthy food made at home and it helped us." Revealing her diet and workout routine that she followed to lose those extra kilos, Monalisa continued, "I did Yoga, meditation regularly. I did planks, I watched videos on the internet and did cardio for 45 minutes to 1 hour regularly. We would workout everyday. I followed a strict diet to keep my immunity strong and lose weight also. I am still continuing my diet, and haven't stopped. I feel 70 percent it is diet and 30 percent exercise."
