Sanaya Irani, who takes "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8" as a learning experience, isn't a confident dancer and so has asked boyfriend Mohit Sehgal to stay away from the sets of the reality show for a few days.
Talking to The Asian Age, the popular TV actress confessed that she has asked her significant other not to be around on the sets in the first few days as it makes her conscious.
"Yes, I have asked him to stay away for at least two or three weeks, till I get used to the stage. I will call him after that. That way both of us can enjoy the performance. He knows that I've wanted to do this for a while, but couldn't due to prior commitments. So he said, go ahead baby, get done with it," Irani further elaborated.
Not many know, but the TV star was offered "Nach Baliye" too, but she turned it down as she had no plans of taking up the show then.
"I just think that the level of dancing really improves when you dance with a professional choreographer instead of your partner. I think Jhalak is a better platform for me as a dancer," she added.
The challenges that dance routines come with hasn't bogged her down and she hopes to get better with every passing week.
In other news, fans have been rooting for her on social media. Despite low scores, her debut performance was lauded by the Twitterati last week.
