The Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 11 winner went on to say, "Hum ek baar Bihar mein the toh us time specially jab hum ghar gaye the 4-5 din k liye, lekin wo humko uss time phone kiya ki tumko Colors pe nahi jaana, tumko Bigg Boss nahi karna, ghar jaa ke baith gayi, tum abhi aa jao Mumbai. Uske liye hum specially ticket kar ke Mumbai aaye ki mera toh Bigg Boss hone wala hai."



"(I once went to Bihar, especially for 4-5 days, but he called me that time and told me that you don't want to go to Colors, you don't want to do Bigg Boss, you went home. Come to Mumbai right away. For him, I especially booked tickets to Mumbai, and I was convinced that I was going to be on the Bigg Boss show)."

Taking the conversation ahead, Manisha Rani explained that the guy kept calling her to meet at different places, leaving her perplexed. The Bigg Boss OTT 2 fame added, "Ek baar 3 baje raat ko phone karke bolta hai ki aa jao mere ghar. Toh hum bole ki hum ghar toh nahi aayenge (Once at 3 o'clock in the night, he called and told me to come to his house. So, I said that I would not come to your house)."
