Catfights in `Life Mein Ek Baar - 2`? No way, says Archana Vijaya
New Delhi: When more than one female participates in any event, catfights are said to be inevitable. But Model-VJ Archana Vijaya says there won`t be any clash in the adventure show ‘Life Mein Ek Baar-2’, in which she will be seen with four other female contestants.
The 30-year-old will be seen sharing screen space with actresses Yana Gupta and Barbara Mori, model Diandra Soares and southern actress Kirat Bhattal as they fight their fears and take on various adventure sports like scuba diving, shark cage diving, archery, and kayaking.
According to Archana, all the females worked in perfect harmony unlike other reality shows.
"Imagine putting five women in one place and not having a single moment of catty behaviour! Not for one moment did any of us fight with anyone. I think all five were very comfortable with themselves and there was no insecurity. All of us were there for the same goal," Archana told reporters.
It was bonding and friendship throughout the show.
"What also brought us together was that we did all the tasks together. It was like we were conquering our fears. Sometimes if a person was scared to do something, others would encouraging her," she said.
The first season of the show was broadcast in 2011 and was hosted by Purab Kohli. This time there is no host.
The second season was shot in Cape Town, South Africa and after staying together for almost 20 days; the participants got a chance to know each other better.
Archana is all praise for Yana and Barbara whom she got to know for the first time through the show.
"I did not know Barbara and Yana before. Barbara has to be the most amazing down-to- earth person. Yana has the entire item girl thing attached to her, but she is a sweet, simple girl. She is completely different from the persona that you perceive of her. We were such good friends and bonded over dinners. It was amazing," she said.
For Archana, skydiving was the best experience ever.
"Jumping off the plane 10,000 feet above the ground was amazing. When I did it, I knew it was the best thing I have ever done in my life. I would highly recommend people to jump off the plane! It was unreal," she said.
"It was truly a once in a lifetime experience for me. The most unbelievable experience because there were five girls and we had an amazing time. You don`t get an opportunity to do something like this," she said.
