Madhuri Dixit was at first shocked when Meghna performed on a song wearing heels. Madhuri said she imagined Meghna to be like “Amma ji”. Meghna reacts to such comments saying, she doesn’t get influenced by the roles she plays either good or bad. She feels such characters don’t exist in reality. After a few weeks she was eliminated from Jhalak because of low scores. Meghna is one of the few actresses who survived the television industry and is still doing great after almost 14 years.
