Say Shaava Shaava, the 11 day musical reality show on NDTV Imagine is progressing at high speed and we witnessed the 2nd elimination today. To the surprise of viewers, Divyanka Tripathi and Juhi Parmar found themselves in the Danger Zone after their second performance, and today Juhi Parmar happens to be the 2nd celebrity to be voted out of Say Shaava Shaava.. The contestants who will face the music being in Danger Zone tonight are Narayani Shastri and Manish Goel..
Our reporter Ranjini Nair caught up with a dejected Juhi Parmar on the sets of the reality show. Says the gorgeous actress, “I was not eliminated because of my bad performance. I was eliminated because Aman targeted me the other day. In spite of giving a better performance in the second episode, I found myself in the danger zone.” Juhi does not blame the voting pattern as she feels that every reality show comes with a bundle of uncertainties. “Maybe the viewers did not connect to my performance properly, but found Divyanka’s performance more interesting. Hence they saved her”, says Juhi.
The format of Say Shaava Shaava has a clause wherein the person getting eliminated can be the savior for one contestant and the actress feels that this is where she lost the battle. “The funda is that before a person goes out of the show, he/she can save another contestant. At this juncture, the eliminated person will not know who is safe and who is in danger zone, the person needs to name one contestant based on the pervious performance”, says Juhi. She adds on to say, “Here, Aman preferred to choose Manish the other day because he just wanted to be nice to Manish because Manish was nice to him before. Today, before I came out of the contest, I saved Mouni purely because she sung very well. I am glad that I saved a good singer”.
Talking about Sumeet Raghvan, Juhi says with a smile on her face, “Sumeet is a very good singer. We are beginners in singing whereas he is supreme. We used to tease him that he can directly take part in the Grand Finale and allow us to battle it amongst ourselves till the final stage”. Juhi feels she has gained the confidence to sing before a big crowd now and the actress is very optimistic of getting back in the contest thro' Wild Card round. “I have 3 days left to prepare for the Wild Card, let us see if the judges and viewers get me back at least there”, says the actress as she signs off.
