When more than one woman participates in any event, catfights are said to be inevitable. But Model-VJ Archana Vijaya says there won’t be any clash in the adventure show — Life Mein Ek Baar-2, in which, she will be seen with four other female contestants. The 30-year-old will be seen sharing screen space with actors Yana Gupta and Barbara Mori, model Diandra Soares and south actor Kirat Bhattal as they fight their fears and take on various adventure sports like scuba diving, shark cage diving, archery, and kayaking.
According to Archana, all the females worked in perfect harmony unlike other reality shows. “Imagine putting five women in one place and not having a single moment of catty behaviour! Not for one moment did any of us fight with anyone. I think all five were very comfortable with themselves and there was no insecurity,” says Archana.
She adds that it was bonding and friendship throughout the show. “What also brought us together was that we did all the tasks together. It was like we were conquering our fears. Sometimes if a person was scared to do something, others would be encouraging her,” she said.
Archana is all praises for Yana and Barbara whom she got to know for the first time through the show. “I did not know Barbara and Yana before. Barbara has to be the most amazing down-to- earth person. Yana has the entire item girl thing attached to her, but she is a sweet, simple girl. She is completely different from the persona that you perceive of her. We were such good friends and bonded over dinners. It was amazing,” she says.
Of all the adventures on the show, skydiving was the best for Archana. “Jumping off the plane 10,000 feet above the ground was amazing. It was the best thing I have ever done in my life,” she says.
