New Delhi, March 22 (IANS) They didn't spend the expected period of time with her in the 'Bigg Boss' house but her Indian co-stars are sad and upset at the news of her demise. They fondly remember the lively and always smiling Jade Goody.

'I am feeling extremely sad to know about it (Jade's demise). We were hoping that some miracle would happen and she would live for many more years,' TV actor and one of Jade's 'Bigg Boss 2' inmates Ketaki Dave, who is in the US, told IANS over telephone.

Added another inmate and music reality show winner, Debojit Saha: 'I can't believe she is no more. It all happened so fast and suddenly that I am not able to come to terms with it. She was so lively and she always kept smiling.'

After scorching headlines for making racial comments against Bollywood actress and inmate Shilpa Shetty in Britain's reality show 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2007, Jade came to India to participate in the second season of the Indian version 'Bigg Boss' August last year. But she left the reality show after she was diagnosed with cancer.

Apart from Jade and Ketaki, other female inmates of the 'Bigg Boss' house were TV actor Rakhi Vijayan, item girl Sambhavna Seth, actors Payal Rohatgi and Monica Bedi, non-celebrity Elina and beauty queen-turned-actress Diana Hayden.

Among the men were model-actor Zulfi Syed, MTV Roadies 5.0 winner Ashutosh Kaushik, TV actress Shweta Tiwari's divorced husband Raja Chaudhry, Congress politician Sanjay Nirupam, Rahul Mahajan - son of late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan - and comedian Ehsaan Qureshi.

'It's a very sad news. I was shocked to hear it despite knowing that she had to go eventually. I am all the more worried about her kids now as children (Bobby, five, and Freddie, four) at that age need their mother the most,' said Raja.

'I remember how when her cancer was detected while she was in the 'Bigg Boss' house with us. We became really sad for her at that time and started praying for her. I also gifted her a Lord Shiva statue to help her overcome death but unfortunately nothing worked out,' he added.

Though Goody was expected to have a hard time considering the language barrier in the house, as contestants were supposed to converse in Hindi only, Debojit recalled how she used to hum the lines of Hindi songs.

'We used to share a lot of stuff and used to talk a lot. In fact, she even used to dance and sing with us. She fell for the tune of the song 'Dekha na hai re socha na' and danced to it when I sung it in the house. She even memorised the lines and used to sing it,' he said.

Added Raja: 'Whatever time we were with her, we had a gala time. I remember how Payal used to interpret everything to her in English and Jade used to try to reply us back in Hindi. She was a gem of a person.'

Debojit and Raja also prayed for the 27-year-old to 'rest-in-peace' and strength for her family to go through it.

Jade is survived by husband Jack Tweed, 21, and her two sons.
