Excerpts from the interview:
Karan: Ok, how does it feel to be on the show I know I am giving too much importance to myself by asking you this question, but how does it feel?
Shilpa: It feels weird
Karan: Weird? That's a first why would you feel weird?
Shilpa: Its feels weird because you know we have known each other as friends and you can get away with a lot but, I really don't know the feelings are mixed
Karan: But, it's such a sweet innocent, almost like harmless show So, why should you feel weird?
Shilpa: Am I still on Koffee with Karan? (laughs)
Karan: What was the worst thing Jade Goody said to you
Shilpa: I think behind my back most of the things were said that's the reason, it created the furor it did it became this whole international incident I think we as a race Indians, are pretty tolerant we tend to forgive and forget more easily and that's exactly what I did I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and even after those fights I just wanted to move on because I was like, this is just a show and I am going to go back home and honestly Karan, I took up the show because, I didn't think I would last that long I told Anurag, I left Metro and I told him, listen this is a great opportunity, they have told an Indian to be on the show, Main jaaongi, bahut saara paise bhi de rahe hain, aur mujhe kya karna hain.. I just have to be myself So, I am just going to have a good time and come back and I said keep the shoot after two weeks, I will be out in 2 weeks (laughs)
Karan: (laughs) So you never thought that you would ever ever win?
Shilpa: Not in my life it was a dream
Karan: What about Jade Goody had you heard of her?
Shilpa: No, I hadn't heard of her
Karan: Neither have I
Shilpa: Ya people in the UK know her
Karan: Have you been in touch with her have you had any kind of interaction with her?
Karan: Not at all
Shilpa: No not as yet.
