Delnaaz, who has been spending time in theater for more than a year now, wishes to return to the small-screen. She said that she is in search for a good show. As an actor, she feels that she has still not gotten her due in the showbiz world. Though she has done some commendable shows and movies, she feels that she has failed to position herself well.

When quipped about the roles she would want to do this New Year, she said that she wants to see herself in a completely different avatar. She mentioned, 'I would like to play a plus-size, healthy naagin in 2020.” When asked if she is willing to do a supernatural role, Delnaaz revealed, if the show is getting good TRPs, then there's no harm. An artiste shouldn't blame the channel or the producer.  Though people crib about reality shows such as 'Bigg Boss', however, it ends up to be TRP busters. She also opined that this genre of naagins and bichchus will continue to rule if the viewers keep watching them. She feels that if feel-good shows or historical shows with a different concept are offered, the audiences will like it and appreciate it. 

On the personal front, Delnaaz is in a live-in relationship with DJ Percy Karkaria, however, marriage is not on their minds as of now.
