“I take part in it (shows) to do what I like doing. I took part in two dance reality shows because I love dancing. I have never entered with the intention of winning. I don’t know what goes on, how reality shows work or don’t work,” Sanaya told IANS.

“I go there and do my job. I do what I like doing. I get paid for it and I come home very happy. So there is no reason why I wouldn’t do a reality show and I am perfectly okay with it. It’s not like I have to win every reality show.

“I am happy where I am and doing what I am doing,” added the actress, who made an appearance in the reality show “India’s Next Superstars” earlier this year.

Any fiction or reality show in the pipeline?

“If there is something that I like doing, I will happily do it. I have not come across something that I want to do on TV right now,” she said.

She is currently busy exploring the web world. She featured in the new digital project, “Zindabaad”, along with filmmaker-actor Vikram Bhatt.

Neeru against parents’ over interference in children’s married lives

Mumbai– Actress Neeru Vaghela says over interference by parents in their childrens married lives will only lead to discord.

Neelu plays Satya Devi — a married daughter’s meddling mother — in the upcoming show “Main Maayke Chali Jaaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo”.

“In today’s time, I feel people in a way are not able to understand the different nuances of the institution of marriage. They should understand that marriage is not about one person adjusting all the time, both the parties must adjust and make it a successful partnership,” Neeru said in a statement.

“Furthermore, it is important for parents to understand the fine line where they need to stop intervening in their children’s married lives. They should definitely offer support whenever needed and take a judicious call for the same. Over interference in the form of offering advice in trivial matters will only lead to discord,” she added.

Child abusers should be named and shamed, says Preeti

Mumbai– Actress Preeti Jhangiani, who has filed a complaint against an elderly man for abusing her son, says such abusers should be named and shamed so that they learn a lesson.

Talking about the incident, Preeti told IANS: “My son along with a group of friends went to play at a building garden where they have been playing for quite some time now. During the game, they create noise, fight at times, which I think is part of their childhood and is natural.

“However, one boy among them went to his grandfather to complain about it, and then that elder man came out and created a ruckus. He verbally abused and screamed not only at all the children who were playing there but also the mothers who tried to stop him from abusing children.”

“I filed the complaint because I believe that such child abusers should be named, shamed and are taught the lesson of a lifetime,” added the actress, who is married to actor Parvin Dabas.

The actress went to Khar police station on Thursday to lodge an non-cognizable complaint against the man.

“He told those mothers to shut their mouth because he didn’t want to talk to ladies. He was giving Hindi ‘galis’ to the kids and screaming. Both my sons – one is 7 and the other is 3 – felt traumatised when they came back home with their nanny,” she said.

“My younger son started crying uncontrollably because he got really scared of the screaming. Such ill behaviour from an elderly man cannot be tolerated. I want to see the end of it,” added the actress of “Mohabbatein” fame.

Asked about the current status of the situation, she said: “The man is absconding now because he is not coming to the police station. But I am sure if he does not come, the police will take further step.” (IANS)
