    Q: After Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, which is the first show that will mark your return to television?
    A: It is Extreme Makeover which is going to go on air this April.

    Q: Is your contract with Sony still on?
    A: Yes, for one more year I am an exclusive to the channel. They have made me the channel's brand ambassador and I cannot take up any other acting assignment on some other channel till 2008.

    Q: What about extreme makeover?
    A: I am very excited about it as it is one of a kind and has not been ever on Indian television.

    Q: So what you been doing after Jhalak?
    A: I have been doing stage shows all over the country and abroad. It's amazing to see the response that I get from the public when I come on stage.

    Q: Tell us something about your world tour?
    A: I am leaving for France in a couple of days to cover a carnival happening there, for Star news. Next it's New York where I will be hosting a Bollywood awards Programme. After that there are a few more stage shows where I am going to perform.

    Q: You have been doing more of dancing post Jhalak.....But what about acting?
    A: It's because I am yet to get the kind of offer I am looking for. Though I have read a few television scripts, they have hardly appealed me. But there is this show which may be finalized. You will come to know about it when things materialize.

    Q: What kind of roles would u like to do after Jassi?
    A: Anything of the unusual kind but definitely not similar to Jassi again. I always wanted to do something different in my life. I am open to saas-bahu dramas as well if there is some challenging character for me to do. Though I must admit, I don't like watching saas-bahu shows.

    Q: Do u think after Jhalak.... you are able to get out of the image of Jassi?
    A: Why should I want that? After all it's the character that made me what I am today. But yes as I already said, I won't take up any role like Jassi again. I am here to make my mark as an actor and that is only possible by playing different characters.

    Q: Do you miss Jassi?
    A: Not Jassi but the whole show and the team. It will always be the best part of my life.

    Q: You have been seen in lot of page 3 parties these days?
    A: (Laughs) I go only to such parties where I am invited respectfully. It's their love and affection for me. After the invite they call me up personally to remind me about the time. Now you tell how am I going to avoid all this? Otherwise, you will never see me dancing in a pub or a disco.

    Q: What about the rumours of you and your boyfriend getting married?
    A: (Laughs again) Yesterday only through a newspaper I came to know that I and Karan (her boyfriend) had secretly tied the knot. Actually these are those kinds of news which remain alive only for a day. So, I really don't need to do much about such talks.
