Further Jiya continued, “I am ticking all the boxes for myself, why will I run behind a man? Look at me. I don’t think anybody should run behind anybody, for that matter. Just do good in life, whoever has to come and stay in your life shall do that. So, ye do fandoms ke beech mein, mein kyun fasi hui hu, I have no idea and please, I request all these fandoms to get me out of this. I don’t want to be a part of this. I have my own identity. For that, even if I have this many people, I know they love me a lot. Don’t link me up with a guy I don’t have anything with." The Bigg Boss OTT 2 contestant concluded by saying that when she dates someone, she won't keep others guessing, she would be happy to flaunt the person.
