Nia Wants To Overcome Her Fears

Nia Is Scared Of Lizards

Nia Talks About Competing With Ravi
"It's quite co-incidental that I am going to be competing with Ravi, whom I have romanced on-screen. Earlier we used to do our scenes with music played in the background in cool breeze, and now we will be competing with each other in dust and mud. So its going to be a different thing altogether."
Nia Hits The Gym
To give a tough fight to the other contestants on the show, Nia hit the gym recently. Speaking about her experience, she told, "I had taken a pledge that I will never go to the gym because I always thought that it's overrated."
'It Takes A Lot To Sweat It Out In The Gym', Says Nia
"But it's been a week since I have joined the gym and now I have realized that it takes a lot to sweat it out in the gym. I respect all my friends who go to the gym. Joining a gym is helping me a lot. I was stupid to not join the gym before and worked upon my body," concluded Nia.
Shiny Doshi, who was last seen in Jamai Raja will be re-uniting with her co-stars Nia and Ravi for the reality show and is quite elated too. Speaking about the same, she said, "It's going to be so much fun to have Ravi and Nia along. It's kind of a mini reunion for Jamai Raja actors."
Furthermore, "I am very excited and nervous to be a part of the show. The audience will have to watch the show to know about my deepest fear. I want to know myself better. I also want to see till what extent I can push myself mentally and physically by being a part of the game."
Regarding her preparation for the same, she told, "I am working a bit on my core strength to perform the stunts. I am doing activities like under water swimming and breath controlling to prepare myself well for the stunts. I am also increasing my will power and motivation to be prepared for whatever comes my way."
We can't wait for the show to begin!
