The producers of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa were impressed with her posters in Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde. They wanted to rope in her for the sixth edition of their hit dance reality TV show. Hence, they approached Jwala Gutta with a lucrative offer of Rs 1.5 crore. But the the Badminton player rejected their offer without a second thought, which came as an unexpected shock for the producers.
Jwala Gutta, who is staying in Hyderabad, had to fly to Mumbai for the shoot every week for a period of three-and-half months and her portions will be shot for 34 days. But she is currently training for 6 days a week and 7 hours a day for upcoming big tourneys and she has only one day holiday in a week and that is Sunday. So she had no other choice except rejecting it.
For this Hyderabadi beauty, Badminton remains as her first love. Even if she retires, she wants to work for badminton. When asked about why she rejected the offer of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Jwala Gutta says, "Badminton comes first to me, everything else is just next to the sport."
