The Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa contestant is one of the star guests at the sangeet ceremony in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha

When Giaa Manek quit Star Plus’ show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya so she could dance in Colors’ Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, she angered a lot of biggies in tele-ville. There was also buzz that she wouldn’t be allowed to act in any TV serial again. However, it seems as if things are going well for her….at the moment, anyway.

Colors roped in Giaa to be a special guest at the sangeet ceremony of Mohan and Megha in the channel’s popular show, Na Bole Tum…Na Maine Kuch Kaha. We hear that the pretty lady showed off her dancing skills at the function. You may say that cross promotions are common on television, but what’s interesting is that Giaa’s fellow guests at the do were leads of other Colors shows – Deepika Samson (Simar of Sasural Simar Ka), Hunar Hali (Aditi of Chhal- Sheh Aur Maat), Kirti Nagpure (Siddhi of Parichay), Sreejita De (Mukta of Uttaran) and Preeti Chaudhary (Ambi of Kairi). Giaa is just one of the participants in the channel’s reality show, and is still identified with her SNS character, Gopi. Yet, she was made a part of Na Bole…. The channelwallahs are clearly aware that despite the controversy, she is still very popular. This makes us think that it could mean that there are bigger opportunities in store for Giaa with Colors. Remember how something similar happened with Harbhajan Singh? The cricketer first participated in Colors’ dance reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena and later went on to host Ring Ka King. We surely hope JDJ leads to better things for Giaa too!
