I thought of quitting `Jhalak..`: Drashti Dhami

New Delhi: Television actress Drashti Dhami, who won `Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6`, says there was a point when she thought of quitting the show.

Drashti was balancing television soap `Madhubala - Ek Ishq Ek Junoon` along with `Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa`. The work pressure was so high that she told her choreographer, Salman Yusuf Khan, that she wants to quit.

"I did think of quitting. There was a time when I started getting low scores. The amount of energy, which I was trying to put into my performances, was not showing," Drashti told IANS in a telephonic interview from Mumbai.

"After a month and a half, there is no physical strength left. It is only mental strength. I was so tired, I told Salman that I want to quit. He was shattered," she added.

"But I knew, I would not give up...I know myself," she added.

The 28-year-old described winning the show as a "larger than life" feeling.

"It is a proud moment. It is larger than life feeling. But I am very tired and really zoned out right now," she said.

Asked about her joining other reality shows, Drashti said right now her priority is `Madhubala`.

"I will concentrate on `Madhubala` as I haven`t given it too much time. As far as other reality shows are concerned, I don`t know what I will do. As of now, I just want to rest and rejuvenate myself," she said.

Drashi-Salman team won the trophy as well as Rs.50 lakh prize money.

"I have no idea what I will do with the prize money as of now, lets see," Drashti said.
