Didn't expect '...Baazi Mehmaan' to be so messy: Gizele

Mumbai, Jan 28 (IANS) Model Gizele Thakral is participating in "Welcome: Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki" and the cookery reality show has left a bitter taste in her mouth.

"I didn't expect the show to be so complicated and messy. I am from the modelling world, but I never knew that even TV celebrities can act in this way," Gizele told IANS.

"Welcome: Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki" sees celebs cooking and dining with fellow co-stars or other celebrities. Each week, five celebrities are put in a group and turn by turn they cook and invite others to their place.

"They behaved like they had never seen anyone in short dresses, which is completely not true considering they also used to wear all this. They don't have a personality like me and that is why they were not visible on the show," she said.

Gizele has been an international model. After winning "Ford Supermodel of the Year" title, she got a lot of work abroad.

But she always nurtured Bollywood dream and was looking for the right break.

"Being an Indian, I always wanted to work in Bollywood. I was getting work abroad, but I wanted to work here too. Also, since childhood I was a 'nautanki' and a drama queen, so everyone thought I am apt for the acting field," the 23-year-old said.

"I'm a voluptuous girl and it was very tough for me to maintain that stick like figure to be able to continue working abroad. Also, I am a very creative person and I feel that I can express a lot more through acting," she added.

If an item number comes her way, she won't mind doing it.

"I want to find work in movies. I am looking for a role which suits the way I look. I would love to do an item number or a nice action role," added Gizele, who takes her inspiration from Karisma Kapoor and wants to be exactly like her.

"I completely idealise Karisma Kapoor. I have tried to ape the way she looks and dances," said the model, who is currently busy auditioning for films.

"I have never auditioned in India before and currently I am doing that. My cousin, who works in Bollywood, really encourages me," she said.
