As she will be on a secret task assigned by Bigg Boss. Though the actress was keen on doing the show she didn’t want to be a contestant on the show. And hence she turned down the offer again.”.

I hope I can live up to the audience’s and my friends’ expectations, make 'Weekend Ka Vaar' with the contestants an enjoyable affair in my own style and up the ante on the entertainment quotient.
