When quizzed about the same during the launch, the actress stated that it isn’t in her nature to copy anyone. “I don’t need to take inspiration from anyone especially when you are hosting a reality show. You have to be yourself. It’s not in my character to copy anyone”. Furthermore, Kananga also expressed her excitement about trying her hand at hosting.
She said, “I am not going to grill everyone on the show. I’m sure there will be people who will deserve my love and affection, some will be there who will deserve what they get. The show will have excitement. I'm hoping to make some friends, some enemies. In my eyes, who chooses to accept oneself, I would consider that person as the most appropriate behaviour”.
