For Mona Singh, who could not image herself dancing, winning the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa title means a lot. “Of course, it has made me a better dancer. I’m ready to dance around trees,” she says.
No, she has not signed any film as of now and wants to take it easy. “Whatever I do has to be more challenging than my character Jassi. A role, be it in films or serials, which allows me to do something different is what I’m looking for,” Mona makes it clear.
In town to talk about the cause of underprivileged children, Mona has a message for Delhiites: “You made me win Jhalak... now it’s your turn to do something for those children who can’t go to schools. Do whatever you can. Even a little contribution can make a difference. ” Quiz her about what she likes about saadi Dilli, and the beautiful actress answers immediately, “I love coming here in the winter. Yahan ki kulfi is just wonderful!”
And what about her other love, Karan Oberoi. She takes a diplomatic stand, as she answers this one, “I’m here to prove myself as an actress. But media, I guess, is more interested in knowing who am I dating or where are we dining tonight. So, whenever a journalist calls me up to talk about it, I end up with a simple ‘No comment’ stand.”
But is marriage on the cards? “No, not at all. It’s too early to even think about that,” she says. You can catch her hosting a reality show, which is tentatively titled Extreme Makeover. “The show will help those women who have been tortured by men. We’ll help them look, and of course, feel better,” she explains.
