We have asked actress Giaa Manek enough questions
about her past controversies; be it her being replaced on Saath Nibhana
Saathiya or being found in a hookah parlour. "It's in my past. I have given
enough interviews explaining and re-explaining myself. I need not repeat
In a past interview, Giaa had been quoted saying that the channel Star Plus was like her dad. Yet in the same interview she had also said that the channel had tortured her. We interrogated her, "If Star Plus is like your dad, how come the channel had tortured you too?" She retorted, "I don't think I had ever talked about being tortured, well... maybe about being put in a cage." So was she misquoted? "I don't know," she dismissed.
Giaa confessed to being disappointed and shocked that she has been eliminated from Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 - Dancing with the Stars. She points out that those who were scoring less than her stayed on while she was eliminated.
"I was getting good scores and comments, so the elimination was unexpected. However performing on the show has enriched me. I know ten forms of dance now. I now know dance styles which I had never ever seen before."
So is she open to participating in other reality shows? What about Bigg Boss? She replied, "I haven't been offered the show as yet. If I do get an offer I have to think over it. I have already been offered Fear Factor. However I couldn't take it then as I was busy with Saath Nibhana Saathiya."
